Seeds in CDs is a good idea. They picked the wrong plant species, unfortunately.

Here's hoping that first item leads to U2 showing up in Rock Band sometime soon.

The U2 deal is more a merch and branding rights deal than it is a 360 deal. There's no mention in the article of touring or publishing revenue, and Universal remains as their label. So LiveNation is missing several significant revenue streams, and it is not a 360 deal.
