Windows 10's Privacy Policy Is The New Normal

Isn't it funny how companies want to know everything about you but couldn't care less about you? Microsoft gets a lot of data out of Windows 10, and it's really no surprise in a world where big data means big bucks. Sure, data collection is inescapable in the current climate of assistants and other personalized applications, but it's scary to think about where everything is going and how your data is being used.

It's probably fair to say that Windows 10 goes further in this kind of thing than previous operating systems. But it does so not as an outlier or some major break from past behaviors, but as a next step in a continuous process of making operating systems more connected, and to make data collection and analysis more extensive.
