Leaked documents from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) indicate that the organization has become suspicious of Trusted Platform Module (TPM) technology built into an increasing number of Windows 8 PCs and tablets.


I smelled fail with Windows 8, then after using it, I felt like I was encapsulated inside of a browser (same thing with the newer Ubuntu Editions), which led me to believe that it would be extremely easy to spy on users through the browser type OS & track the users as well.


Lame Micro$oft is selling out their customers to spies... (How low can you go?)
