IMPORTANT… PLEASE NOTE Windows 10 Spies on Almost Everything You Do, Unless You Opt Out

00 windows 10 computer 310715

________________________________

Microsoft’s Windows 10 spies on nearly everything its users do, and anyone who agrees to the operating system’s new terms of service consents to surveillance, whether knowingly or otherwise. Included in Microsoft’s new 12,000-word service agreement, which goes into effect August 1, is the following excerpt from the privacy policy:

We will access, disclose, and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications, or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to.

Whilst Microsoft does allow Windows 10 users to opt out of all the features that one might consider invasions of privacy, users are opted in by default. Rock, Paper, Shotgun explains the opt-out process step-by-step. Windows 10 will sync settings and data by default with its servers. That includes browser history, favourites, and currently open web pages, as well as saved app, website, and mobile hotspot passwords and Wi-Fi network names and passwords. Activate Cortana, Microsoft’s personal virtual assistant, and you’re also turning on a host of data sharing, as Microsoft’s new privacy statement points out:

To enable Cortana to provide personalised experiences and relevant suggestions, Microsoft collects and uses various types of data, such as your device location, data from your calendar, the apps you use, data from your emails and text messages, who you call, your contacts and how often you interact with them on your device. Cortana also learns about you by collecting data about how you use your device and other Microsoft services, such as your music, alarm settings, whether the lock screen is on, what you view and purchase, your browse and Bing search history, and more.

The updated terms also state that Microsoft will collect information “from you and your devices, including for example ‘app use data for apps that run on Windows’ and ‘data about the networks you connect to'”. Windows 10 generates by default a unique advertising ID for each user on each device. Developers can use that and advertising networks to profile you and serve commercial content.

Editor:

Geekly friends of mine give the advice, “Do NOT enable Cortona under any circumstance. You don’t need it… it’s a crude tracking device”. DISABLE CORTONA WHEN YOU INSTALL Windows 10. That’s especially relevant to leftist and pro-Russian users. Do you want Langley spying on you? DISABLE CORTONA… you’ll be glad that you did.

31 July 2015. Why Do Russians Believe Americans to be Stupid?

00 Homer Simpson. Donuts. 14.09.13

In Russian, but easy to follow, and only 1:08 in length

______________________________

Why do so many Russians believe that Americans are idiots? Well, firstly, no one believes that all Americans are stupid… no, not at all. However, secondly, all the same, American behaviour often does give rise to such thnking… Yanks believe their own propaganda, “The USA Beat Hitler” or “The USA was first in space”, or “The first woman in space was an American”.

You can believe the BS regurgitated by the US State Department or you can believe your own eyes. It’s up to you. You can believe Marie Harf, Jen Psaki, and Vickie Nuland, the Three Witch-Bitches of Foggy Bottom or you can believe the images. Oh… it was a balmy 32 degrees (91 degrees Fahrenheit) today in the Crimea with no rain…

31 July 2015. Donald Trump is the GOP Frontrunner… What Does That Tell You About the Character of the Average Republican?

00 john mccain 220715

______________________________

What’s happened to the Republican Party? Many moons ago, I belonged to it until reality ran over me like a Mack truck. I found out that Republicans were money-hungry, soulless liars, power junkies, win-at-any-cost amoral nihilists, control freaks, and nasty Nosey-Parkers. The current crop of “Republicans” would label Jacob Javits, Rocky, TR, and Ike “RINOs”… no lie. I can feel for people who were once Republican. However, I do know this… no Orthodox Christian can belong to the Republican Party without spitting on Our Lord Christ and His Church. Look at what Ted Cruz did to Arab Christian leaders. He virtually spat on them in public and insulted them! Only a self-hating Orthodox Christian could stay Republican after that incident… it tells you much about Potapov, Paffhausen, and the konvertsy, doesn’t it? It underlines their vacuity and fatuity for the entire world to see.

I need say no more. The GOP nominated Sarah Palin… it nominated Wet Willie Romney… it looks like it may nominate Donald Trump. That’s pathetic…
