44. Re: More Origin Spyware Accusations Nov 2, 2011, 10:05 theyarecomingforyou
I have Origin installed to a different directory and when I ran Process Monitor it was only accessing the folder to which it was installed - it wasn't accessing programs like Skype, as shown in the video. Still, Origin has got a long way to go at the moment and if it's to compete with Steam it will need to offer a better service and be beyond reproach when it comes to privacy and the likes. EA has built up a lot of much deserved bad will and farming personal data to sell on to advertisers - whether anonymous or not - is a very bad start.

This sort of shit pisses me off because my latest mobile number has received a lot of spam - from texts to phonecalls - and it pisses me off that these shitty advertising companies can so easily get hold of my personal information thanks to other shitty companies like EA.
