Windows 10? Here are privacy issues you should consider submitted by wakowarner to technology

jnr 1 points 71 points (+72|-1) ago

The worst part:

Microsoft can disclose your data when it feels like it

This is the part you should be most concerned about: Microsoft’s new privacy policy assigns is very loose when it comes to when it will or won’t access and disclose your personal data:

We 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 protect our customers or enforce the terms governing the use of the services.

I’m not suggesting Microsoft and its lawyers are alone in making provision for such sweeping power over your data, but we should all be very careful about relying on the “good faith” of corporations. I’m not even sure such a thing exists.

Me too. Initially, I was so excited for this release. Then as more has been revealed, I started getting suspicious. This is "game over" as far as I'm concerned.

Gotta start moving to Linux I guess.

Windows 10: Microsoft faces criticism over privacy submitted by roznak to technology

Also, you have to accept the license terms before creating an account. So this is not an issue of using a Microsoft account instead of a local account. This is also not conditional on using their cloud storage. The policy covers the entire device and all connected devices.

They built a front door into the OS and you can't lock it. You either accept it, or don't install it.

Obviously there are things like encryption and firewalls people can use to try and circumvent, but that doesn't make this okay.

Microsoft says youll have to wait longer for Windows 10. submitted by kusuriya to technology

Right on. I wanted to to test it more but never found the time to really use it, other than just browsing the internet and what-not. The insiders are really valuable to getting a solid product. So, thank you for being a preview user!

Why can't a social network like Voat be run like 'The Pirate Bay' with content spread across a network of participants, therefore negating the need for corporate sponsorship? submitted by Jesuislegrandezombie to technology

So... if it's distributed across all users' computers doesn't that mean that one person adding illegal content (like child porn) would result in all users hosting illegal content from their personal computers?

Ah, didn't realize it was text-only. That is an interesting aspect. Given that you can convert an image into text, I wonder how the laws would hold up if someone were posting text-representations of illegal pictures.
