    I turned off ALL of the "do it for me" options. There are a bunch of them.

    HA!

    I don't care if they include snooping by default as long as I can go in and shut it off. They know that most people will never bother to do it... so mucho data will be handed over for free.

    If I had my own OS... you can damn well bet I'd have it suck the users dry if possible.

    I heard yesterday that W10 will download itself on to your computer if you have automatic updates turned on. I turned it off and set it to "notify." :lol:
