Katherine and Gordon talk about Windows 10.  Gordon, as a long time technical reviewer was impressed with some aspects but had his jaw drop at the massive invasion of user privacy.  Windows 10 captures your files, keystrokes and voice comments.  Other operating systems can offer more privacy.  Terms and conditions have gotten out of hand - one even called for your first born.

Good News Friday // Raw Milk // HowJSay // Carotenoids // Overdue Book //

Wow! It's another Good News Friday.  A small victory in an case dismissed against a farmer whose daughters were tricked into illegally selling milk.  Katherine used HowJSay to look up how to say carotenoid, which are in abundance in those with a healthy glow.  Humans (and animals) are able to tell those with a healthy glow from good nutrition versus a suntan.  It is never too late to return an overdue book - a retired soldier returned a book after 65 years.
