Talk to the flack and win free tickets to new Will Smith movie

Since we all like free things, and these days, free seems an especially elusive concept, I thought I'd mention to everyone that Sony Electronics is in the midst of a 40-city/40-day tour.

The SVP of corporate communications and host of the Sony blog, Rick Clancy, is visiting each Sony Electronics' store and talking to customers. He says that he wants to talk to everyone about what they like about Sony products -- and what they don't like. (Don't worry. I'll get to the free part of this in just a moment.)

The first 20 customers to talk with Clancy at a Sony Electronics store will receive a free movie pass to see Sony Pictures' upcoming release, Hancock, starring Will Smith and opening July 2.
