    I love these articles because they are crap and who cares? .
    I love them 'cos you can comment on them and no-one cares about that either :)

    I better go and get the dinner on though.

    EDIT: Oops, I just gave away my timezone, native language, gender and/or social class. Blast! Must be more secretive in future.

    I love these articles because they are crap and who cares? Honeslty does anyone realize how much data is collected on you everyday? I large majority of websites collect data and even retailers do with your credit card number. Look up some of the tactics Walmart uses, they are a premium case behind this.

    I don't understand why everyone gets so upset at Microsoft when so many other Vendor's do this such as Apple, Google and even Ubuntu. They do it and some get upset but everyone is okay but Microsoft gathers some statistics and everyone freaks out.

    My thoughts are if there is something you don't want the world to know about (which I don't blame you) then a computer is the last place to store your stuff, especially one connected to a network.
    First of all, there are rules that in the U.S. that businesses have to follow when using credit cards online or in person and that includes Microsoft.

    I am not saying it is true or not, there really needs to be a reliable 3rd party test that both zdnet & forbes contributors would agree with. To me it just looks like contributors disagreeing with each other. Then Microsoft pops in and says they are going to have tool to disable it-which may only apply to the enterprise versions.

    Those thinking some of this is paranoia, might want to checkout these program if repeated but I haven't seen that pbs program

    Here is another program as well if repeated

    Denver Airport Bunker, NSA Data Center, White Sands Mysteries: America Declassified: Travel Channel

    On the travel channel show it does sound a little creepy but that just to get you to watch it. I will say it interesting on how it is done. Don't think your safer using Linux especially if you use the internet.

    The argument for telemetry is that the data collected is used by MS to spot bugs, security holes and to assess the integration of applications and programs with the OS. Considering that 80% of the MS customer base are Enterprise users, why can they turn most of it off ? Seems to me it should be the other way around. What is it about that 20% ?

    I didn't read the article because I only want to read what is backed up with proven fact. This is my thoughts on the matter. When I'm using the released version of Windows 10 I would like to have control of what I do and do not share with MS or anyone. When I'm on the Insider Preview I want to share info (except for personal) with MS to help them to make Windows 10 better. MS may not want any of my personal info but if they were to get hacked. What info do they have stored about me that a hacker could benefit from. Besides that by allowing them to do this it opens the door for other forms of privacy invasions.

    You didn't miss anything there then...

    Despite not reading it you want to give your opinion.

    On the matter.

    Oh well.

    Figured you'd get to that. Please have another go with "NSA" , "CIA" "Roswell" included.

    I said the matter, as in my info being sent out without my control. I didn't have to read the article to know how I feel about my privacy. I don't care if it's MS, NSA, CIA, Roswell, the man in moon or even the Martians, as long as what I do is legal it's nobodies business what I do on my computer. You don't care, that's your business. I do care about what I share
