    No surprise, I'm sure if Microsoft resisted they would've been subjected to another round of trumped up anti-trust lawsuits.

    No surprise. Most of the large companies are allowing the government to look at their data. If you want to keep things private, encrypt it yourself and don't rely on others to keep your information private.

    Which is why in all the years I've owned any machine with Windows (whatever), I have never kept up with the stupid, sometimes invasive updates.
