Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Buy MS Office and get a free toboggan

So what's so special about Canada then, eh? There must be something, if this recent MS Office ad is anything to go by.

Now once you've polished off your Powerpoint presentation and slapped some clipart into your Word file, you can put on your quilted puffa jacket, unsheath your baseball bat and carouse around the snowy slopes on your free toboggan.

And what do we UK Office users get? Nada. Zilch. Nothing. We're not happy. We want our free toboggan. We want it we want it we want it! ®
