Kinoma, the makers of music and video player software for all flavors of Palm smartphones, has a deal where you can get their software for free (sort of) when you buy flowers or other stuff from FTD Flowers. There's a gotcha, of course: ads.
The deal, operated by TrialPay, offers Kinoma Play for Windows Mobile Treos, Kinoma Player 4 EX for Palm OS Treos and Centro, or Kinoma Producer 4 for Windows or Macintosh. You buy flowers for your sweetheart, your spouse, yourself or whomever, and agree to put up with ads, and the software comes "free" like digital broadcast television: Put up with the ads.
To skip the ads, look here for Kinoma software for Palm phones. On the other hand, if you're going to buy flowers anyway, well, maybe?
UPDATE: Straightening out (I hope) some confusion that I inflicted, the ads I whined about are not in Kinoma's software, nor affixed to the flowers, nor pasted on the vase. They don't appear on your computer or your Treo/Centro, either, unless that's where you read email. The ads land in your email box - and we all know where the delete key is.
Thanks to my friend Jay Reed (yes, were both named Jay) for the picture, an image from a recent charity art show.
