i dont think there is, but i think its a possibility, companies used to do stuff like that on the tv all the time. And wow, the topic was supposed to be "do you think" i really screwed that one up...

Once such group did a test, they publicy said they were doing subliminal messages and to call this number and tell them what the message was. After many calls of "buy pop" or something like that, no one got the actual message.
Subliminal messages don't influence you, because they aren't processed on that left. If you kept seeing pictures of blood, then saw a picture of a sleeping dog you might think it's dead, but if you kept seeing pictures of Coke it would not make you want to drink a Coke.
why should Microsoft and PC manufacturers have to say it? They may be somewhat monopolizing but still, I don't think there's anything that says they have to state you have alternatives. That's up to you to find out. Or perhaps the others out there should start pointing it out themselves. After all, they're the ones that'll benefit from it, right?
