    "After installing the Windows Anniversary Update for Windows 10 it would seem we picked up a lot more than we bargained for.

    There is a feature now that allows Microsoft to quietly install popular games and apps from the Microsoft Store without your consent or knowledge, eating up your bandwidth and hard drive space and potentially putting you at risk.

    I am calling Microsoft out in this video for this bad practice and also telling you how to disable it so it won't continue to happen.

    I also tell you how to fortify your Windows 10 to prevent telemetry and data gathering moving forward by Microsoft."

    In this version episode of #TechTip I show you how to disable all of the spying features of Windows 10 and get your privacy back. I think Windows 10 is a great operating system once you disable all the data gathering mechanisms and return it back to a pure operating system.

    Poor Barnacules is getting more and more angry with every MS-related video.

    He needs more rallying and weight loss updates to break the mood.

    Not sure they care about their old developers at this point. His entire department got thrown out IIRC. Kernel developers don't bring in much money, data analysts do.

    Yup, QA too, the lack of QA and OS talent has been showing badly for quite a while, and it's not going to get better any time soon.

    MS has wasted so much money, good will, and reputation on this capturing data obsession, building $1T in data centers world-wide.

    I love this part:

    "Windows 10’s aggressive data-collection capabilities may concern users about corporate spying, but enterprises have control that consumer-edition Windows users do not: Administrators can decide how much information gets sent back to Microsoft.

    But enterprises need to think twice before turning off Windows telemetry to increase corporate privacy. That’s because doing so can decrease the effectiveness of Windows 10’s security features."

    So, let me get this right... turning off telemetry to increase privacy and security, decreases security in the fantasy world of Windows 10?

    My favorite part of the article, since updated from the first time I read it when @Phoenix posted it:

    "Full Level
    The Full level gathers data necessary to identify and to help fix problems, following the approval process described below. This level also includes data from the Basic, Enhanced, and Security levels.

    Microsoft may pull additional information from a device if the diagnostics request is approved by Microsoft’s privacy governance team, including privacy and other subject matter experts."
