Windows 10 //
Privacy issues associated with Windows 10 - the worst spyware ever foisted on the world.
Microsoft is giving away the new Windows 10 operating system for free, instead of charging for it as in the past. Katherine explains that it's free because it's really spyware that combines all the privacy-invading surveillance of past decades and more. The default settings make it one of the the biggest scams ever foisted on the public.
Microsoft explains that its new "Cortana" digital assistant "works best" by spying on you, oops, I mean learning about you, so they collect and use data from your calendars, apps, emails, text messages, phone calls, contacts, browsing history, device location, musical choices, alarm settings, and online purchases.
Cortana also turns your computer into a bug by using the microphone to listen to everything you say. "To provide personalized speech recognition, we collect your voice input, as well your name and nickname, your recent calendar events and the names of the people in your appointments, and information about your contacts including names and nicknames."
Microsoft will give all your details to Big Brother if he asks. According to their privacy statement, they "will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal process, including from law enforcement or other government agencies… [or] to enforce the terms governing the use of the services.’
