Notes from the Electronic Cottage 12/19/19: Holiday Idea – Read Licenses

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

First off, Happy Holidays, whichever ones you celebrate. As part of the holidays, over the next week or so, lots of new digital gizmos will be opened in houses across the land. To use most of them, the new user will have to click to agree to a license before the device can be used. Ever read one of those licenses from top to bottom? Might be – no, absolutely would be – a very good idea. But in case you don’t choose to, cartoonist Stephen Pastis depicted one in cartoon form that isn’t too far from the truth. Enjoy (well…).
