Sun bundles Yahoo's toolbar with Java. Without commenting on the levels of awesomeness in that, I will comment on their installer text. From their own website,



Note:
  • "Install a free program with the Java™"
  • "Mail Alerts let's [sic] you know when you've got mail."
The Java? Let's?

*sigh*

There's a ridiculous bidding war that takes place between Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft for bundling toolbar software with any piece of software that wishes to whore its users out to such things.

Same applies to PCs, default search on browsers, and search bars for major web sites.
