Macworld reports that Sony ships a bunch of trial software with it's VAIO PCs, then charges you extra to remove it at time of purchase! That takes a lot of nerve, but I guess some people (or businesses) are willing to pay for non-software. I wonder if they actually delete the bloatware. Don't they just avoid installing it in the first place, then charge you as if they installed it and then removed it for you? Does anybody want to pay me $50 to delete my next post in this thread after I make it? Or, equivalently, does anybody want to pay me $50 to not make my next post? If so, I'll skip directly to my third post and not make my second post. If you expect to dislike my second post, I'm sure it will be worth the money.
