Well it isn't even that honestly. The cost is less than 3k USD which is
not a big deal. The question is value to the customer. Consider that I
can purchase a 4GB pen drive for for <20.00 USD. Why do I want a 1GB
model? Because it has a cute elephant on it?

Don't get me wrong, I still think it is a positive direction in
comparison to using CDs. I seriously think we need to completely dump
handing out CDs. They are wasteful and *anyone* who is going to pick one
up at OSCON or LWE or any other US show, has broadband.

In comparison the stickers, which are approximately the same cost as the
CDs would be, will be seen all over the place. People will put that on
notebooks, monitors, laptops etc... That is branding that is worth a lot
more than a little pen drive.
