How to con your customer?
I was trying out Mailinfo - which is a software that give you the ability
to confirm read on your messages - today when i presented with this message..during installation.
Look closer to the couple of sentences i have highlighted.
Usually the user will avoid clicking on the first while he quickly installing the application thinking that he may be about to install browser add-in, tool bar.. or another companion software that comes packaged and trying to be installed with your originally select app, and following the same approach of thinking he won't read the second statement thinking that he agreeing on the license and all that legal bluff, but with the statement agreement he will be actually installing Ask.com toolbar.
i was close to fall for that but i notice the sentence that try to bluff me.. and i completely canceled the installation, as I'm now can't trust the author of this application, what else this program installs behind my eyes.
hope this issue can be standard and we come up with something that enforce developers to explicitly inform end-user that he is about to install something that he didn't ask for.
