    Really lol , hasn't this info been gone over a thousand times already by every forum and tech site on the net , yes it has and you know that .

    All i was doing is pointing out that your laughing about other peoples concerns about privacy and saying it doesn't exist is not very helpful , people know it exist , you know it exist but appear to just laugh off anybody who has a concern about it .

    Granted some people make it more than it actually is but it does exist , denying that is just not being truthful.

    Have a good day Sir.

    I tend to agree

    Of course there are others who love to spy on your activities, the difference is though the O.S. has access to everything you do and write, every file you open, every picture you store, every e-mail you send, every program you install (no matter the provider) it's at the very heart of absolutely everything you do.

    Microsoft even puts adverts on your start menu by default, yes you can turn it off for now but that may not last. If you want some degree of privacy you really have to hunt round your computer to turn things off, or use a hack. It even thinks it's fine to share your bandwidth with the whole internet without telling you.

    If absolute privacy was the default in Windows 10, how many people do you think would think to themselves ''Ahh hang on there are loads of others who collect information about me, why don't I let my O.S. provider watch everything I do also it's silly not to because I'm watched anyway'' and then turn them on ?

    The O.S. lies at the heart of a machine I paid for, not Microsoft, My writings are mine not Microsoft's I fear that people have been fooled by a sleight of hand, most people simply would not understand how to turn off most of the information Microsoft feels free to share about your activities and your computer, privacy should be the default.

    Hmm, I think that is called the insider program. Original Microsoft wasn't going to included the tracking stuff or whatever you want to call it in the release version. I am kind of surprised Microsoft included in the release version. I thought Microsoft would have enough insiders to test these systems. Remember, one wrong setting you could unintentionally violate H.I.P.P.A. in the U.S.

    Tried 10 Returned to 8.1

    If MS was only monitoring, collecting and storing telemetry data relevant to system performance and not any personal data then will someone please explain why MS needs to spend a massive amount of money storing this data in a highly encrypted format in some far off foreign land?


    Remember, for Cortana to work as designed it needs to build an extensive user profile. If this isn't personal information then I don't know what is.

    Hi gator
    I think they are storing information in Germany to keep it out of the U.S. courts jurisdiction reach.. though not sure.
