Why would I want them to know what websites I visit regularly? Most of us guys watch internet porn, so why would I want them to know that I like "girls-with-huge-boobies.com" (I hope that website doesn't exist! I made this up!)? Why would I want them to know what my e-mail software is? Or what other games I play? Unless Origin can come up with a reason why they absolutely need to know more about my "life online", I don't want them to know about it. And whenever they gather any information outside the games I bought via Origin, I want them to ask and give me the opportunity to say "NO" without any consequences.
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
