Promo gives Vista users T-Mobile HotSpot access

Microsoft and T-Mobile have teamed up on a promotion that gives users of Windows Vista free access to T-Mobile wireless HotSpots until April 30.

The Web site they’re using to promote this piece of the Vista marketing puzzle has a cosmonaut theme and some odd bells and whistles. There’s a game where you pilot a little laptop around asteroids, a build-your-own solar system game and a bunch of promotions for Jefferson Starship, the present incarnation of Jefferson Airplane.

Perhaps the most bizarre feature, especially given the recent NASA scandal, is a “hot or not” style game featuring Russian cosmonauts.
