>Microsoft is taking action. It has decided to release updates “later this year” which will enable users to fully control all background telemetry and data tracking and, if desired, disable it completely.

lying on the internet. Why do people do this?
>>
>>52930844
Yeah like when they got busted selling email information to government and then just outsourced it so they werent technically selling the info themselves.

Niggers got paid $50k per email!


Woooooooo!!!
>>
>>52930717
Holy shit. Gonna downgrade to 8.1 now and wait until these updates are released.
>>
>>52930717
Man, I was about to say that maybe this whole thing is all an overreaction, and maybe I've been wrong about 10 this whole time.

But I just got the notification to update on windows 7 that updates are available. And I go look, and windows has unhidden the windows 10 nagware updates that I had previously hidden away. Fuck this bs, I don't want nagware.
>>
>>52930899
Neither windows 7 or 8.1 is safe unless you really know which KB's you install from windows update. There were updates pushed that kind of enables windows 10 spying on windows 7 and 8.1. They are easy to uninstall though.

>>52930717
That's good news. Just hope they do it before the free upgrade offer expires otherwise I will be stuck on 8 for quite a while. I'm not sure the manual removal methods actually works.
>>
>>52930930
I've always had updates disabled on every Windows but 10. It just won't let me, so I left it on, and now that Microsoft made this huge announcement, I'm gonna downgrade and wait until I'm botnet-free.
>>
>>52930887
>Niggers got paid $50k per email!
Is this a hyperbole or there's an actual source for this?

Because at say 400m users, that would cost the government $20000000000000.

Unless they were selectively buying only the interesting ones, but $50k per email is still too much.
>>
We should make a pastebin for the blacklisted KBs for 7 and 8.1 that enable 10-like telemetry and upgrade offers. I can contribute some for 7.
>>
>>52931311
Whew finding this source might be hard. It was probably 2 years ago. Iirc they only got caught selling the gubment like 30 emails. So it was per request. Now I'm sure it's handled differently and on a much larger scale. I'll try to find it again.
>>
>>52931633
Oh alright, thanks Anon.
>>
Nah, they lost me as a user.

Will keep my W7 partition for a little while longer avoiding updates, and then delete it.
>>
>>52931644
Nah I'm looking. Its a bitch to Google on my phone though because all the junk results burying the story.
>>
>>52930717
It will probably still phone home at random intervals. There's no way they would get rid of telemetry, they make too much money from our data.
>>
>>52931676
It's ok. Go ahead if you want, but I just wanted confirmation on the 50k per email that seemed too much without knowing it was only about a few select emails.
>>

Fucking shills.

Wasn't this already proven false?

Now can they fix their inconsistent UI
>>
>>52931693
sigh...I can't find that specific amount. I remember hearing about on leo leporte radio show while driving and I got home and checked out the sources. Sorry man.


>On September 12, 2014, Yahoo! reported the U.S. Government threatened the imposition of $250,000 in fines per day if Yahoo didn't hand over user data as part of the NSA's PRISM program

http://yahoopolicy.tumblr.com/post/97238899258/shedding-light-on-the-foreign-intelligence

Damn they're pretty ruthless.

>A Yahoo spokesperson said: "Federal law requires the US government to reimburse providers for costs incurred to respond to compulsory legal process imposed by the government. We have requested reimbursement consistent with this law."

jewtalk for they paid the fuck out of us.

It is pretty incredible what broke in the Snowden documents that the average person didn't bother looking into. Absolutely bonkers.

I hope it comes with options to increase the data collection. I'm tired of sending data manually to Microsoft each day.

Arent those the retards that told everyone to disable ad-blockers, only for people who did as they asked to get viruses and shit in return?
>>
>>52932088
yes they were.
Anyone browsing without ublock origin and noscript is crazy these days.
>>
>>52932102
fucking kek'd in that case, obvious paid article is paid.
>>
>>52931687
Could they make it phone home after it's been idling by X amount of time AND when there isn't any software tracking network activity on that PC?
>>
>>52932170
Of course they can do that, but how would they detect a tracking device that's outside the computer?
>>
Yeah right. Fuck off, Pranjeet.
>>
>>52930717
Complete nonsense... Just like how Windows 10 Enterprise currently can "disable telemetry completely" by turning it down to just "basic" telemetry?
>>
>>52930903
>Fuck this bs, I don't want nagware.
Then install windows 10, then it will stop nagging and just install what ever it wants and restart without nagging you about it.
>>

>and now that Microsoft made this huge announcement, I'm gonna downgrade and wait until I'm botnet-free.

What? Are you retarded? Did you not think you were part of the botnet already? You are a typical windows user, that's for sure.
>>
>>52931796
what was proven to be false? That Microsoft exists? That they are going to make it possible to turn off telemetry? The thread theme? Or something about forbes?
>>
I hope they really do, but I don't believe what they say because microsoft lies out the ass.

In any case I'm already using windows 10. I was avoiding it but then I realized I was fully immersed in the android ecosystem and that I also use chrome because it's the only browser worth a shit so meh, the nsa already has a clone of me inside their hdds. The botnet is just too comfy now to leave.

Yes he is.

This is a hilarious set of news;
The false news is microsoft admitting that there was always-on telemetry that the user could not do anything about, and the real news is microsoft saying 'we have no plans of changing this'.
Microsoft is admitting that there will always be telemetry in windows 10 that you cannot turn off.
The 'you can turn off telemetry' has been one of the biggest excuses for win10 faggots.
>>
>>52930717
Sounds nice.

All they need next to that is to bring back the old WU system where you can select or hide any of the updates.
