    No, Microsoft is not spying on you with Windows 10

    The Windows 10 privacy agreement doesn't mean Microsoft is secretly stealing the data from your hard disk. Where do people come up with these crazy ideas?

    Buy tinfoil futures.


    I'm dead serious. There is apparently a growing and very vocal population of people who believe that Windows 10 is basically a 1984 telescreen come to life. They are convinced that with Windows 10 Microsoft has built a spying apparatus not seen since the height of the Cold War, scraping up every detail of your life and feeding it back to Redmond for who knows what nefarious purposes.


    They're going to need lots of tinfoil.

    The comments are hilarious. Worth the price of admission alone

    It's amazing that people really don't seem to get how crazy they sound.

    There are probably still people around who won't use credit cards because of security worries, me, I like living on the edge, I hate the stone age lifestyle.

    Microsoft should buy CBS and use the "Eye" logo. That would really freak out some people.

    "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you."

    I'm not the tinfoil conspiracy theorist type, but I think a healthy dose of skepticism is appropriate. Something about Microsoft's strategy with 10 has never quite smelled right. Kinda reminds me of the plot from Kingsman: The Secret Service. And the scorn and ridicule from those pointing fingers at the paranoid reminds me of that quote I hate- "Never look a gift horse in the mouth." Why TF not? Of course you should look- maybe then you have a chance to protect yourself before it's too late.

    The ones that think they're crazy aren't, but the ones that think they're not crazy are.

    We finally got Microsoft to listen to us, and now everyone complains about it.

    A single picture can say it all?!

    Gee what could cause all this fuss I wonder? When going to the last stages right before seeing the desktop for the first time during the upgrade or clean install you have one screen where you either hit the fast fly through "Express settings" or look for the "Custom settings" along the bottom left corner of the screen.

    One article pointed those types of setting seen in 10 as how Microsoft can access your own ISP's bandwidth to share updates and other things all over the globe? Besides some "Paranoia" in that regard a first look at the Privacy settings might tend to make some a little edgy?
