CorelDraw a program and, like in any installation, there is this part where the installation wizard asks you if you are agreeing to the End-user Licensing Agreement (EULA). Now, like everybody usually does (come on, lets not lie to ourselves, you know who you are), I immediately checked the I have read and agree... checkbox, but it is disabled. And a tiny prompt message (more like a tooltip to me) appeared, indicating that:
Please scroll and read first the agreement before checking.
Now being a little irritated, I immediately scroll it downwards (for 8 seconds, I think?) down to the end but it still not being enabled. After another couple of seconds (like 4 seconds), it became
enabled and I continued with the installation.
Now, is this approach really effective? Because, even this approach is used, as the reader, I personally didn't even finished reading the whole agreement. Considering that computers cannot (as of the time of this writing) accurately determine 100% if you read and understand everything all the content of it.
Home computers, laptops, etc... don't have that complex visual detection hardware that can detect the movement of your eyes if it actually read and move from left to right, nor x-ray or aero-chemical scanners to determine if some parts of your brain is "actually" processing the context of the agreement, nor lie-detectors if your really telling the truth about agreeing to the EULA.
I'm just wondering.
P.S. Of course, telling that you agreed to an agreement even if without reading the whole EULA is your own fault.
