Re: Microsoft: Users Don't Even Care About Privacy

I think you're all getting huffy because it says "Microsoft".

And yet you'd probably believe a survey that says that some huge percentage of people would reveal their password to a guy in the street in exchange for a free chocolate bar.

It's the *same result*. People say they're concerned but they don't behave in a manner consistent with that concern. Here in this forum, we mostly take that as a true observation of the world.

PS: I think this is true in general not just in regards to internet privacy.

You didn't read the EULA properly: I said "guy in the street", not "guy sitting in his cubicle".

Very true. It seems that people in this forum think that the rest of the world acts/operates the same as they do when that is so far from the truth.

I would have to agree with Microsoft on this one. Most of this country really does not care. Just like with anything else important out there, if it's a problem, they want someone to take care of it for them. Then if someone does take care of it for them, they want to bitch about that too!

That's the definition of addiction. (They have to have their "fix" NOW and if anything interferes with them getting it they will do anything to get their fix).
