Avoid carbs AND spyware.

Simson Garfinkel suggests that Congress pass legislation forcing software to be labelled in the same way the food products currently are. For example, if a piece of software includes spyware, then it would have to indicate that to the potential customer. This idea could go even further, identifying the things that are good for you like the functions that operate correctly, and also the things that are bad for you like the stuff that doesn’t really work at all. Perhaps then the overblown marketing claims could be labelled as “fat”.
