    Since becoming the #1 sponsor of the Olympics in 2005. GE has generated over $ 1 BILLION in revenue from selling equipment for the stadiums and athletic villages in Torino, Beijing and Vancouver. $500 Million of that from Beijing alone.

    So far GE has sold $100 Million of lights, power, supplies and medical devieces to London.

    GE said that

    GE's contract with the Olympics runs through 2020

    So GE gives money to be the biggest sponser at the Olympics and in return they get the contract to use their goods for the Olympics and get a return on their investment. How is this news worthy? Am I missing something here?
