Risk-Free is Not Free

To the great shock of many on Thursday, September 23, 2009, it was revealed that "free" and "risk-free" do not always go hand-in-hand. Google experienced some issues with their service which is free to millions of users who were not aware of any risk with the service. Users expressed frustration at how such a thing could happen and disturb their otherwise risk-free daily lives. While the risk of issue has been extremely low with the free service, it is not the first time there have been issues.

To avoid any risk whatsoever, disgruntled users can choose not-as-free options such as Outlook or a myriad of other email and contact management applications. I am sure with these non-free options, they will never risk an issue…

Risk comes for free and it comes with everything.
