Microsoft Denies Windows 8 App Spying Via SmartScreen

It sure didn’t take Microsoft very long to issue a statement denying any instance of App spying in Windows 8. Microsoft is attempting to ease fears with potential buyers that the company protects the user’s privacy and does not share information. Did I just hear someone say "This No Shen"? big grin
