Turn on Cortana, the virtual assistant, and you’re also turning on a whole host of data sharing:

To enable Cortana to provide personalized experiences and relevant suggestions, Microsoft collects and uses various types of data, such as your device location, data from your calendar, the apps you use, data from your emails and text messages, who you call, your contacts and how often you interact with them on your device.

Cortana also learns about you by collecting data about how you use your device and other Microsoft services, such as your music, alarm settings, whether the lock screen is on, what you view and purchase, your browse and Bing search history, and more.”

Lots of things can live in those two words “and more.” Also note that because Cortana analyzes speech data, Microsoft collects “your voice input, as well as your name and nickname, your recent calendar events and the names of people in your appointments, and information about your contacts including names and nicknames.”

Think i'll wait till windows 11 or windows 12 or windows 13 or windows 14 or windows 15 or windows 16 or maybe even windows 17 or windows 18 (catch my vain drift yet?) before i get pushed and prodded into coughing up some more ca$h for another something they want me to think i couldnt possibly live without...

And so i'm wondering around when the powers that wanna be will be able to reverse engineer and sell for megabuck$ the alien windows 29 that was recovered within the crashed roswell disc ha haa haaa haaaa haaaaa haaaaaa (*-*)

Couldn't care less, how the insides of the damn machine work.

Just as long as they work.

And spying on me must be the boringest job in human history.

Making music with a Windows pc bloody sucks donkey ass, though.

Gimme a Mac, please, someone rich..?

They only started the war
