    Does anybody really think the companies like Google and Microsoft just to name a couple don't monitor everything they can. Google doesn't sell anything to mount to much except our information and internet practices.

    Does anybody really think their I.S.P. doesn't monitor everything they can.
    If one is one the internet then they are being monitored, period.

Maybe they even dream of a all knowing MS keylogger that is spying on their entire life
    Hmmm! Maybe that tv in their bedroom is a camera and someone is watching them.

    I don't feel like beeing watched all the time. But if andybody does feel like beeing observed by all the electronic devices: It's definitely a good thing that they all got an off switch. And if they havn't got one they all run on electric power which can be cut

    If one buys a Smart T.V. it is probably a lot smarter that one wants it to be.
    It's a big spy machine you watch movies on.

    I don't about MS. I know Google tracks you if you are using Google Chrome browser and logged-in. Just can't figure out why Google is the top browser. There is way to appear anonymous in Google chrome browser but you need to signout of Google, remove and disconnect your Google account from the browser.

    ISP don't monitor everything but they do save data for what sites you visit for 30 days.

    I really wish journalists were more responsible with their headlines.

    No, there is no "keylogger" in Windows 10, nor has there ever been one. A "keylogger" is a piece of spyware that collects information that you type in order to give someone else that information. In other words, to collect passwords, or incriminating evidence, or something of that nature. The key to this is that it's collecting it for specific use against you.

    Windows 10 does have data collection, just like virtually every modern OS does in one way or another....

    Every time you go to a website, someone, somewhere is collecting data. Be it your ISP (and every network provider in between) in the form of log files, the search engine in the form of log files and statistics (and possibly even keeping every search term you type), etc...

    If you use voice recognition features in MacOS X, iOS, Android, or Windows then what you speak is sent to the companies servers to perform the recognition in the cloud. So they have that data for every command you speak.

    When you have spelling correction enabled, everything you type is sent to the servers so it can flag words for misspellings.. it does this in Windows, Android, iOS, etc..

    Windows is not doing anything other OS's aren't doing, but the difference is that Microsoft is being more up front about it, and covering their butt legally speaking.
