They're not just scanning for hardware to see who running what, games have been doing that already for quite some time. It goes much deeper than that. They are scanning for files in folders, possible music, pictures, video and more. The only logical reason is when they give that info to third parties, it will help paint a picture of millions of peoples likes and dislikes. Very valuable if you in marketing and sales on a large scale like internet sales or what ever.

I'm not saying EA is stealing credit card numbers and taking peoples first born. I'm saying they are snooping where they shouldn't be. The level they are going into far exceeds that of video game development.

So basically you can either let them do it, or not play an EA/Origin game. I for one love BF. I have played 500 hours of BC2 and am still going to buy BF3. I will however, never buy another game from them that isn't of the BF franchise.

This type of crap is the main reason I steer clear of Apple products.

every large company either does the snooping themselves or buys the information through intemediaries, its how you find niche markets and how you figure out what to push and what to scratch. wether or not you like it, privacy is disappearing faster than ever i mean look you could easily find naked women (and men for that matter) in 1 search. privacy is non existent. if EA taking such information could help them make a BF4 then as long as they don't take too much and overdo it then let it be.

it is when your FPS is not really synced with your monitor and it goes kinda crazy and even tho lets say you have 100 fps it feels like 40 and kinda laggy : /

Screen tearing is when your monitor refresh rate isn't in sync with the feed from your video card, and two or more frames are displayed simultaneously on the monitor, resulting in moving vertical lines that, whilst rarely making gameplay impossible, can be mighty annoying. They can be subtle, and non-intrusive as they only last for a split second, but some people just like things perfect.

I've included an example video, keep an eye out for the verticle lines.

Where exactly is that? No one has showed any evidence of them wrong doing. All a bunch of hot air. Monitoring your customers usage is pretty standard. You're more likely to get your card skimmed at a restaurant.
