Scanning your PC = better for everyone.... they whos using what and know when to push pc gaming more because no1 everyone can upgrade. Once they see many ppl are using quad cores and a bunch of gtx 580's of course they are going to push the games further! Stikes mentioned that yesterday or Dteg I don't remember.
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.
