When we heard about a Vista Home Premium upgrade edition bundled with OneCare stuffed into a box that looked like it belonged to Hello Kitty, we were naturally wondering if we ate some bad seafood.  Here's more:

“As a special promotion for the Japanese market, an upgrade version of Windows Vista Home Premium is bundled with a year’s subscription of Windows Live OneCare and a copy of a Vista tips and tricks book. If that deal isn’t sweet enough, then you better know it comes in a pink box with little flower petals plastered all over. Imagine checking out of the electronic store with a copy of Crysis in one hand, and this in the other.”

Memo to Apple: we're not entirely sure, but we think that there is could be the basis for the funniest “Hi, I'm a Mac” commercial ever.

Oo ooo I want one......NOT! This is definitely designed for the Japanese market. I don't think this package design would fly here in the US. If they are gonna go this far, why not just bundle it with a Barbie?

As girly as it looks -- this is a very "eye-catching" color; it would grab your attention definately but I still feel most right minded people would not buy it based on "eye appeal"
