"Heineken's tremendous brand, marketing savvy and deep commitment to the music industry make it the ideal partner for giving music fans a fun new reason to try digital music," said Adam Selipsky, vice president of marketing, RealNetworks.

There are two basic issues with this:

1. I do not like Heineken

2. I don't like AAC and really don't like 192kbps

If they go with Bud and Ogg I'm in.

@ rickshaw:

claims about beer quality must be supported by an ABX test smile.gif

not sure what the bud is like in the US, but in Australia it's like making love in a boat - f***ing close to water.

heiney is not bad. it might just be better if i get free songs with it. anybody can sell AAC if they include beer smile.gif

i'd theoretically prefer vorbis, but that's not likely to happen without commercial backing.

[edit]
hmm... looks like this offer only stands in the US. bad move. if they targeted australia they'd be selling soooooo much ACDC and Cold Chisel AAC they wouldn't believe it...

Umm... wouldn't the quality of the beer have a detrimental effect on your ability to reliably ABX? By about the fifteenth or sixteenth round, most folks would be doing well to grab their glass on the first try. biggrin.gif

I am suppose I am opening myself up for some flames here but as an advert for real ale currently running in England says "are you scared you may taste something lagerboy!" laugh.gif

As for Budweiser give me a bottle of Budvar anyday.

Now if it was mp3's from the Bleep online store for every two pints down my local pub I would be in!

I can drink any of those beers. Bud is missing taste of beer, and here in Finnalnd it is quite expensive.
But to stay in the topic, that offer should be world wide.

Monty Python rules smile.gif

If they would extend this deal to Pilsner Urquell or possibly Velkopopovický Kozel, my friday night "entertainment pack" would get a tad more interesting smile.gif

Are you sure there aren't any laws against that kind of deal? In Finland bundling totally unrelated products with the main product in order to boost sales was illegal for a long time since it gave the company an unfair competition advantage.

Edit:

Oh, and real ale rules too, death to watery lagers! smile.gif

Dreamliner, you are going straight to heaven.

Drinking Fosters is like breathing wet air.

Methinks that reading this that we are (as if it wasn't obvious) a niche taste group. We reject the mainstream (Britney, Heine....CANT-EVEN-SAY-IT-WITHOUT-GRIMICING...ken), and embrace the (cliche time), alternative (Autechre, Real Ale).

QUOTE
Bud is missing taste of beer

Statement of the year! I'd like to go one further and say that virtually everything is missing the taste of beer when you get back from a trip to Belgium. Nothing really matches up to those trappist or abbey ales, certainly nothing comes close to a Chimay Blue or a Piraat for me.


Heh, AAC - General smile.gif

If you're not talking about Molson XXX, then that statement makes a modicum of sense. However, triple x is a helluva brew smile.gif
And I'll sign up for the free AAC encodes when Guinness does it. I don't even think there's another beer that's worth drinking unless you're already totally on the piss to begin.

I second and third that emotion!
Budvar is excellent beer, our American Budweiser (made with rice! Why? Nobody knows) is just horse urine IMO sad.gif
Pilsner Urquell is damn good too wink.gif
QUOTE

Consider yourself lucky, it's piss beer like Budweiser and Miller.

Anyway, Heineken is not much better IMO, though I have no objections to AAC.
Ideally it would be with Lagunitas and would be lossless. biggrin.gif

Treason! Heresy! String him up!
Actually I like both.

I was referring to Castlemaine XXXX. http://www.xxxx.com.au/ cool.gif

Its because of all the adverts, making a big deal about xxxx and fosters being austrailian, gives us the impression thats all you drink! biggrin.gif tongue.gif
