This is probably Origin scanning the video hardware in registry.

My Origin account is not even linked with Facebook. confused.gif Perhaps it is benign?

Facebook has it's own ads. It's buying the information so it can run more relevant ads in general. That's what all this is about. There's a LOT of money in advertising. How do you think a search engine became the enormous billion dollar corporation it is? Referencing Google.

Don't get me wrong, I STRONGLY disagree with what EA is doing and just makes me all the more glad I decided to put off Origin/BF3.

EA and the rest of us all know as soon as Origin is not required for BF3, it will die. I'm going to hold out for a little longer. BF3 is just the bait to get other developers on board. Remember that article about THQ's SR3 and a couple other companies' content coming to Origin soon? As soon as that stuff starts hitting, I'm willing to bet they -might- let BF3 reigns come lose from strictly Origin.

I'm itching to play it really bad, but refuse to until EA changes it's gears in regards to the game. Good 'ol bc2 for now! If any dev or publisher from the modern warfare series reads this, don't get your hopes up. I'd rather play an older BF game than a 5 time-stale cookie u pop out of the oven called MW or COD.

I never actually gave my opinion or whether its "good" or "bad", I simply showed people that some of the things they are being told are lies.

I said already that I dont have a problem with anyone disagreeing with Origin checking what software you use, I simply disagreed with all the false info that was being spread around along with all the relevant truths.

1. All programs do this
2. Its not opening the files
3. secure your important tax files
4. Google and Facebook essentially do the same thing and build profiles on an IP adress, as they continue to track movements after the user has logged off. Wonder if they'll outlaw that and burn google likenesses?

Done.

On an unrelated note, its funny how spell check highlights "google" and "facebook" as needing to be capitalized...but not "god" poke.gif

3. secure your important tax files Right. Maybe your toaster will come steal them if you dont. Because Software isnt bad enough.
4. Google and Facebook essentially do the same thing and build profiles on an IP adress, as they continue to track movements after the user has logged off. Wonder if they'll outlaw that and burn google likenesses? Great. We've had this already in the german forums. The stuff with Facebook etc. Heres what we got: You can live without it. If you want to play BF3, you MUST use Origin so you MUST accept the ToS, so you WILL have spyware on your computer. Isnt it just great? Its a little bonus, sort of. smile.gif Also (I am not on Facebook myself) you can decide whatever you want to post on Facebook. If you want to post your last weekend photo, go ahead. Origin is so smart: It doesnt ask you, it will just take it. smile.gif Awesome. ("How can I get Origin to post my photos on Facebook?")

Done. Thats right.

In conlusion, ITT:

People who swear by their life that EA is out to get them. *Crazy old man conspiracist voice* Be careful! They gon' get ya! No. They're really not. They don't give a rat's rear about your personal life.

People who had no problems with Origin, bashed Steam, and defended Origin to the death, are now bashing on Origin over something so hilariously stupid. I recognize plenty of you in here. I love the smell.

People who swear to their death that they will not buy BF3/any EA titles until they become available on Steam/do away with Origin blah blah blah that will go ahead and buy them anyways in a few weeks when they go on sale for $10 off.

Because it's only capitalized if you're talking about "the" God(whichever that may or may not be for you), not a god. Zeus was considered a god. Jesus is God. See the difference?
