Idealab
Idealab conceived Free-PC as an opportunity to deliver free PCs to consumers, with the costs fully borne by advertising revenue. The company provided free computers and Internet access to tens of thousands of customers. Personal computer manufacturer, eMachines, purchased the company in 2000 to incorporate Free-PC's advertising and e-commerce deals into the eMachines platform.
