    the free iTunes giveaway is going to include only bottles of pepsi, diet pepsi, and sierra mist.

    Strange that they'd exclude the drink of choice of so many 'puter people, Mountain Dew. What are the odds there are more mtn dews being drunk than any other soda, during iTunes downloads? :)

    Does anybody have any idea how to try to get pepsi/apple to change their minds?

    Here's the chmn and ceo of pepsico beverage division:

    This is a noble idea, but most of those labels have already been printed and affixed to filled soda bottles and are just sitting around waiting to be shipped to grocery stores on and around February 1st.

    Good idea though.

    It's called marketing. Becuase of the cracklike addictive substance they put into Mountain Dew you'll buy it no matter what. You have to or you get the shakes. To make Pepsi look appealing to you they have to give away free music.

    yes, Mr. Taxi! That's it! Mountain Dew is already selling insanely well, meanwhile Pepsi was probably on the verge of getting sued for false advertising because Sierra Mist tastes crap, and nothing like a making-out with a hot chick after she rubs ice, lemon, and lime on her lips (believe me, this has been tested :D)

    Therefore, MD sales need no boost while people are trying to GIVE Sierra Mist away!

    you gonna talk, or act?

    so are you going to just talk about it, or do something about it? write/call the guy at PepsiCo. Email apple. Nothing to lose. I'd say more, but gotta run fetch another dew.
