ah ms you keep doing things that nobody likes or approves of yet we still use you, anyways just another reason for people to start looking for programs not made by ms
Good luck finding exceptions given that Google and Yahoo are also participants. And Apple.
I don't know why I stand behind MS anymore, they're not on the consumers side when the consumer is watching.
Yes again another reason to minimize MS products in my life!
As I mentioned in the comments here, last October:
This really shouldn't have surprised anyone.
Not only did Microsoft reorganize the Skype infrastructure to allow spying - they patented the spying such that anyone else that wanted to comply with the NSA would have to license Microsoft patents.
at this point im taking up the mantra "trust no one". And along with that mantra i really dont care if they have my info. They can have all they want. I am going to continue using these services because they are so awesome. i dont have much to hide. much.... im sure the NSA is watching me type this as we speak.
and thats the thing so many people dont know or care and even if they do know most will still keep using MS but on that note like i said in my comment down below i dont really trust any of these big companies and if i were to stop using them well id need to just about go live off the grid in the woods somewhere and communicate via carrier pigeon.
