Does this Burger King commercial scare you?
It should - it's freaky!!!
Well - this is why people like web services... you see, that Big ugly king is the VENDOR. And that guy that is scared shitless - that is you. So you're wondering why the BIG PLASTIC vendor is in bed with you... right?
People are using web services to decouple them from the BIG PLASTIC guys so that they don't have to wake up with them in the morning. Go ahead, put a little distance between you and the KING. :-)
Wake up with the King?
