Of course its going to scan the music on my PC. That's literally the whole point of media library software.
There are also options to enable/disable the cloud syncing if you do not wish to sync.
So much tin-foil hattery O_o

Yes, of course thats true. My concern is the fact that it did not ask you beforehand. Glad to hear there's a disable option.

Currently exclusively available on the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Pretty sure that just the day 1 adopters of Win8 outnumber SIII owners on some absurd scale.

Besides, if M$ is putting their weight behind this, Samsung doesn't have the resources to keep up in the short term, no less the long term.

Neither would their mobile internet tariffs. Streaming FLAC over mobile wifi is a recipe for disaster.

Well to be fair you actually have to either create (takes two mouse clicks) or sign in with an xbox account and agree to the T&Cs.

It would be interesting to see just how many people actually use the Samsung media hub eco system. I do agree that their leverage vs MS will not be too great if this really takes off.
