Some of you guys crack me up.

We want our privacy! Sure, but you'll get shittier services in return. It's not rocket science. More information means better accuracy, better accuracy means more convenience. People act like they're some, okay let's use the term, "special snowflake," when in reality you can be categorized with 95%+ accuracy within a month or two of recording your searches. Racial profiling, prejudice! No, it's the facts. I want my privacy! Then you can fall behind in productivity because you'll never keep up with progressing society. It's a fact, it's a reality, deal with it.

You have the people who complain about apps not delivering enough or being perfect turning around and being hypocrites by refusing to supply the data that would make them better; you guys are part of the problem, not the solution. Privacy is no longer the issue, it's more of getting greater value in return for the trade. Giving up your privacy for their gain is stupid, giving it up for your or the greater gain is not. Simple. Saying that giving up some privacy regardless of the reasons or rationale is somehow equivalent to 1984 is just naive and, to be quite honest, backwards-thinking.

If that were the case why didn't Microsoft make a EULA where it specifically states that they will not give away or SELL any of the information they collect to third parties or the government without a specific warrant?

Wouldn't that be a win win? They can collect 'information' to make better products and they get good press for actually protecting your rights?

You know why they didn't do that? Cos your theory is fucking bullshit that's why. They don't wanna collect your information to make better products, they wanna sell you advertising and they don't want to step on the government's toes. Scratch my back Ill scratch yours, as long as you are the government or another multi-billion dollar corporation. There is a whole army of people like you who will not only swallow it up whole, but call everyone else who doesn't a bunch of names for actually giving a shit. Good job in that regard Maxx, I'm sure they appreciate it back in Redmond.
