    Here's my two cents.

    Strange as it may seem, the passive form of the verb 'to have' appears more and more frequently, especially in ads and commercials.

    Example: "Our latest digital camera model XclumsiX DirtyPix+ can now be had for as little as $5.000.000,-!"

    I've seen it many times in similar contexts.
