The Seattle Times has a list of some free downloads that are available for Christmas today. eMusic.com is offering 25 free movie downloads and iLike is also offering a similar service. eMusic requires a credit card number to be entered, but iLike does not according to The Seattle Times.
The only drawback is that you are asked personal information when registering for these services and there are some advertisements. The companies may also encourage you to pay for premium services as well. Earlier this month, Ticketmaster had invested for partial ownership in iLike.
Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is also offering 25 free e-mail addresses when registering for OfficeLive. Users are able to choose a domain name and Microsoft pays for the registration cost and offers the web building tools for the service.
