Multimedia, AV Songbird, the open source iTunes alternative (which we reported on earlier), has landed a big deal with Philips. The Dutch electronics manufacturer will bundle Songbird with its GoGear line of .mp3 players as the music management and sync tool. While this is good news for Songbird, there are is a catch.

Vanilla

If you're a kid growing up ( at least my experience in 1980's USA), you want Ice cream. The last thing you want is plain vanilla. Vanilla Ice cream is the usual base of a good sundae, but what makes it great is everything else on it. Its a good mellow flavor that allows the topping flavors to shine. Most vanilla ice cream of the time was pretty mildly vanilla flavored. Now a days they have vanilla bean, or french vanilla which is a stronger vanilla taste.

People see vanilla = plain. Unaltered, no extras. Not modified by reseller before sale. No sprinkles, whipped cream, gummy bears, oreos, or cherries on top.
