Last Obstacle to Skynet’s Dominance Removed By Microsoft

With the introduction of Windows 10, updates will now be automatic and forced. Seriously? Are they actively trying to piss off any and all IT managers out there? Because I’ve never known one who wanted to give up control. And I understand why. I’ve had numerous occasions where a new driver version will break my system, or where one of their security fixes is to just temporarily turn an essential feature off until they have time to fix that actual problem (I had this happen earlier this year where they disabled activex controls in office VisualBasic programs for about 2 weeks.) Just imagine what can happen if someone (or something) hacks their system. Doooooomed! We’re all dooooooomed!

  1. Oh.. And here’s this little gem from the EULA:

    “We will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to protect our customers or enforce the terms governing the use of the services.”

  2. Now hold on just one second, I, for one, am completely satisfied by their rationalization that they will only do so: “when we have a good faith belief”. If they’re only hoarding all my personal info–including emails, health records, social security info, browsing history, etc.–when their faith is “good”, then I don’t see what all the fuss is about.

    Snarkyness aside, I don’t understand how companies in this day and age can get away with such horridness. I guess maybe they aren’t getting away with it, it’s not like MS has been lighting the world on fire the last decade and a half.
