You are a shill. No one should ever, ever, have to disable such features on a device that sits in the privacy of their own home, let alone have to defend
why that should be unacceptable in the first place.
We both know Microsoft will force this on the world eventually. You have to be at least intelligent enough to know that is bad.

Cory Doctorow's career of feeding paranoia for clicks continues.
As someone who is using Windows 10 on multiple systems, most of these privacy concerns are very overblown. There are settings enabled by using Express Settings that shouldn't be but if you take 5 seconds to do Custom Settings, most of it can be turned off. And it still pales in comparison to the volumes of information all social networks and smartphone platforms are collecting and monetising without your knowledge. That people are acting as if this is some horrible new privacy breach that hasn't been done before aren't paying attention. If this bothers you, don't ever use Facebook, Twitter or your iPhone.
