Why all MacroMedia employees should be shot

So, there I was, browsing some newspapers to have a look at the latest news from the home land and abroad. John Mayer was spinning happily in the background, just finishing the chorus on “3x5”. Then a screaming dance beat suddenly appeared out of nowhere. Had John suddenly gone haywire and changed to acid, e-flipping beats? Or was it all in my head? Some investigation shoved that I’d accidently moved the mouse pointer over a huge Flash commercial for Hewlett-Packard’s Happy Hours. Dancing computers and PDAs. And they were partying hard. To dance beats.

I can’t remember having asked for any of this. I hate Flash.
