    Here you go some of the things that happens when you loose your privacy even though this fellow needed to have his hand slapped.

    Microsoft Calls the Police After Finding Child Porn in User Account
    He didn't lose his privacy and MS should be thanked about what they did and how they reacted. I guess you did not read the whole article, judging by you mentioning he lost his privacy even though the article clearly states this:

    Before blaming Microsoft for looking into your account, it's worth mentioning that the company doesn't manually check the files you store in the cloud, but has scripts that automatically scan images and search for content that might break the law.
    I welcome MS to use this technology to reveal these perverts, terrorists and such.

    He gave his privacy away when he uploaded those files to Onedrive. Yes M$ did not take it away. I do welcome some of the spying so to speak if M$ had that when they were developing W8 we would not be here on TenFourms but still on EightFourms.

    What an idiot, uploading porn to the cloud, real brains there.

    The cloud should be used for extreme emergencies and as a last resort, nothing else. Hard drives are too cheap.

    If only all we little people had to worry about, was Microsoft listing to every little word we were saying while at of computers running Win10. Oh NO!!! what all did I tell Microsoft? Arrrrrrrr.

    That does not make her any more credible. Or should we, because it comes from such a great authority really take it seriously when she says that "RFID chips and other emerging technologies could lead to the Mark of the Beast"?

    You forgot to mention that the quote about her educational background is from her own website. Wikipedia only mentions her Doctor of Education title, the references to any Business and International Marketing degrees can only be found on her own website and on websites closely connected to her.
    Incredible, I forgot about Wikipedia being the most trustworthy information site on the net I suspect if anyone wanted to know they could simply check.

    And so what, My original statement stands that it's the truth (or lack of) what she says that counts, the Microsoft terms and conditions make no denial at all of the information they collect they just shroud it with ''we do not use 'X' to target you with ads''
    that in no way precludes information being used in any other way they see fit. I'm surprised people fall for such a simple minded sleight of hand.

    Why do you need to make a statement about staying polite absolutely no offence was intended, no need to tell me, simply stay polite ?

    I wonder how important some users think they are? I am not important, I know Microsoft has not the faintest interest in checking what I wrote to my sister in an email or what I said to my friend in Skype chat. I welcome my accountant and doctor and lawyer to keep my records on a Windows 10 computer if they so decide, I know that again, MS has not the faintest interest in breaking in to their computers to retrieve that data or making their computers to call home to send that information. I know there's no alarm triggered at MS when I upload the pics about yesterday's drunken pub quiz from my Windows Phone to OneDrive, as well as I know that no alarm goes off at MS when I update my monthly budget in Excel or check my online banking statements using Edge.

    I am not important. Of course they are not interested in this.

    I know that Microsoft, as well as Google, Adobe, Yahoo and whatnot collect data about how, when and for what purpose I use their services. I welcome that. I like the way Cortana learns my habits, willing to serve me better, I like that Google remembers me, I like that YouTube shows me recommendations based on my viewing habits. Statistics and numbers are important to any business, as is a satisfied customer; collecting the data they need to keep me satisfied and to be able to offer me better and more relevant services and ads is important and mutually beneficiary.

    BTW, saying that authorities warned your dentist not to use Windows 10 is not telling anything, and it most definitely is not a proof about MS spying.
    I don't think it's about 'how important people think they are' it's about a duty of confidentiality. It will be interesting to see how many public bodies adopt windows 10 usage.

    And one more thread that generates more heat than light. Bottom line is this.. if you're that worried about 10.. don't use it.

    Now how hard is that??
