Bottle of Coca-cola = free Itunes song in Belgium starting first of june

Itunes and Coca-cola agreed to work together. What is already happening in Europa since 2006 is now coming to Belgium.
From the first of June 2007, coca-cola bottles sold in Belgium will have a code on them that you can enter online for free Itunes songs and enters you in a pool for winning an Ipod. Altough Google is number 1 marketing power worldwide for the moment, Coca cola can bring digital media to the masses. It's also a lot easier then the free downloads you get from the ADSL subscription with Belgacom. Just buy a coke, enter a number and you're set. Very effective to accelerate the adoption process. Probably Rogers adoption model has to be adjusted by this or is it just that Itunes crossed the chasm ?

Publishing a tab in Netvibes

Since I experienced some hickups with (now igoogle) I switched to Netvibes to read my RSS feeds. So far i really enjoyed it a lot. I used for instance the possibility to export all the feeds into an OPML file. I loaded the OPML file into the Google Reader so when Netvibes is down, i can read my feeds with Google Reader. For the moment it's a must have tool to follow a casual fiction game "Emma online" from VRT. (More info in English) Emma is a telenovelle broadcasted on channel één in flanders. The television program is also available on Sony PSP. To test the netvibes tab public sharing, I shared a tab with all feeds that have something to do with Emma online.
Add Emma Online to netvibes: Add to netvibes

Oeps, the Myspace widgets are not exported in the published tab. Bummer!
Waiting for possibility to upload a netvibes universe!
