I'm a fucking idiot and recently purchased a razer blackwidow ultimate keyboard not realizing that I have to have a blatant spyware program running at all times just for the thing to be functional.
Are there any work arounds for this or am I screwed?
Because "muh cloud".
The idea was you could program it once, and then the settings/macros/whatever would be easily retrievable from >muh cloud if you plug it into another pc (provided said pc has synapse installed of course)
"By using Razer Synapse 2.0 (“Synapse”), the Subscriber agrees that Razer may collect aggregate information, individual information, and personally identifiable information. Razer may share aggregate information and individual information with other parties."
Then surely the keyboard doesn't have that functionality anyway, and it's their cloud macro program doing all the heavy lifting.
Just get a different one that doesn't offend your sensibilities.
