Yahoo toolbar unsuitable for nukes

Posted by Michael Bloch in online world (Friday September 26, 2008 )

In the genre of “do not place your pet in this microwave” disclaimers and instructions comes this little ripper from Yahoo!

I noticed it when reading the EULA (End User License Agreement) for a software application which the Yahoo! toolbar was a part of:

“you may not use the Yahoo! Software to operate nuclear facilities, life support, or other mission critical application where human life or property may be at stake. You understand that the Yahoo! Software is not designed for such purposes and that its failure in such cases could lead to death, personal injury, or severe property or environmental damage for which Yahoo! is not responsible.”

So all you nuclear workers using Yahoo! toolbar to run your reactors, get it off quick!

It really makes you wonder, not so much about the companies that include what would seem to be such silly instructions in their products, but about we consumers that drive companies to have to actually point these things out in order to avoid law suits.

By the way, the articles on Taming the Beast should not be used as guides for neurosurgery or raising kittens.

It’s a mad, mad world.
