[ComputerWorld] With Cortana, Microsoft is “scroogled” in new Windows 10 spyware scare - Page 7

post #61 of 103
How?

Using Windows 10, Nightly 64 bit locked down with ad and scriptblocking, and writing an email in Gmail, there should be no way for Cortana to spy on my emails. Hacking Gmail will lead to a lawsuit by Google. Hacking Firefox will lead to a lawsuit by Mozilla. Bypassing ad/scriptblocking would lead to a lawsuit by the EFF. Unless every piece of software, from first keypress to email delivery, is M$, there is no way they can legally (and I do believe in some ways technologically) do what they are saying they will do.

Boycotting Windows 10 isn't going to help if there is a built in man in the middle for every communication link.

There's really not much choice when it comes to voting. It's like AMD vs Nvidia, only when everyone is done arguing only one brand can be used in their system for X year(s), regardless if it works right for their particular needs. The system works, but not 100% the way a specific individual needs it to. However, both brands still do virtually the same thing.

People can boycott Windows 10, but it isn't going to help when all other similar services (Windows is slowly becoming a service) are do the same thing. Sure you can stop using these services, but then you heavily isolate yourself from most of the world.

Which is not what Google does, they actively scan your e-mails to market to you. Happens to be how I saved about 60% off my Kitchen Aid Pro series lift bowl mixer. Google knew I had been looking, and when a huge sale came up, they alerted me.

That said;

These Windows 10, trash tier, hit pieces are getting old and are amounting to nothing but forum spam.
Still shouldn't happen.

I loooove my kitchen goodies. No one can ever call me an Nvidia fanboy or AMD fanboy, but feel free to call me a KitchenAid fanboy!

Seeing you mention that made me check up on Slickdeals, they have the 6 qt mixer for $205 (w/shipping) on Woot right now, refurb, but hey, $130 less than the cheapest new price.

If you wired various capacitors throughout your house could you hide some of the fingerprints?

KitchenAid basically rebuilds their "Refurbed" stuff from the ground up. They completely take them down to just bare housing, and replace everything. KitchenAid refurb is damn near new, and backed as new. While my mixer was brand spanking new, and the ice cream maker attachment that came with it (gave to a friend). My food processor was refurbished, and has been going strong for years.

Will cut what i honestly i am not interested since i don't live in the USA.

I was aware of that. And what if they do?

They're inanimate objects. They do not function without user interaction.

You're making it look like no one can have a private conversation as of now,because there are microphones recording you everywhere. rolleyes.gif

The fact that certain objects contain microphones and cameras means nothing.

I would say maybe putting a power conditioner before your main junction box would be the only way I can see of masking what you have in your home
