  • You keep listing “free software” from Windows Rewards, then putting a disclaimer that it’s untested. Surely some people would have red lights flashing in the back of their mind about “free software” being advertised, seems a little too good to be true, add to the fact you haven’t even tested it to see what the catch is (there’s always a catch), it seems quite irresponsible, especially with the current prevalence of ransomware and alike. Surely it would be better to err on the side of caution and not recommend untested “free” software?

    • They aren’t recommending anything though, they are just putting it out there.

      I mean… is it ethical to recommend the Maccas deal when the nation as a whole is so obese?

      • It’s not unethical to recommend a maccas deal, it’s perfectly healthy for some people. But untested software from a too good to be true source, that’s just dangerous.

          • Starting to think that as well… I’ve raised this a couple of time now, and heard nothing but radio silence from the mods here.

          • Hi guys. Any advertorials or sponsored content on Lifehacker is ALWAYS clearly labeled as such. The same goes for our sister sites Kotaku and Gizmodo. Cheers.
