CNET Video - We Want You To Be Able To Click With Confidence

by nero nazi / August 20, 2016 12:19 PM PDT

Really??? What a load of manure.

Sorry CNET, but you guys lost my confidence years ago when you were caught hiding malware, crapware and spyware in the files you were trusted to distribute. How about the infamous CNET Installer. I'm also sure folks absolutely loved the way they were deceived that using this program was for their own security but the true motive was piling on even more CNET foulness in the form of yet more quantities of malware and adware. I can't even imagine the number of people you've bilked to download this crapware without them realizing it. But I guess that was the point, to prey on the unsuspecting visitor.

And FYI, it's kind of ironic that CNET's plea for folks to trust you again is delivered in manner that obtrusive and annoying to say the least. You want us To Be Able To Click With Confidence, and each time we click on a program page, we are greeted with this infuriating video each and every click. Incidentally, was it CNET's intention to use a voice that was abrasive, annoying and high pitched to further aggravate anyone visiting your site. If that's the case, well done. You would have gotten the same affect by tasking a howler monkey to scream for hours on end.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
