One for the out of touch with reality book:
Viewpoint turns to adware. In an act of desperation the CEO of viewpoint revealed that they are planning on collecting click stream data from their desktop photo management product and search toolbar.

A little better than the $6 million/quarter they just reported.
If I ran a publicly traded company I would read this before going down the adware path:
