    However, Windows 10 could potentially collect a ton of data about you — probably more personal information than any operating system in history. That’s due largely to Cortana, Win10’s built-in personal digital assistant, which collects such information to better serve you. But Windows 10 also collects information to make other aspects of your computing experience more personal ...

    I love this post of yours brutha Clyse. It, along with a multitude of examples I've seen throughout my life has again proved a quote I read. As a senior the book 1984 was required reading by my English teacher who picked it himself. He thought it was important that the public knew what was coming, and how the real world is. The quote is: "Today's truth, it tomorrows lie"

    I'll use this post to demonstrate it.

    Today's truth.


    Tomorrow's lie.



    Other examples, 3 mile Island ( no radiation threat, then it was the worst) Bush, WMD (they have them, turns out they didn't have any)


    You get the point.

    1984 imo should be required reading nation wide..

    Peace!

    Yes Sir, bro. Enki, George was way ahead of his time with this piece. Did you know it killed him? He only lived about a year after it was published. Like Orwell, I'm an obsessive writer of re-writes and different ink colors, with drawings all over the original manuscript, reflecting turmoil. He really went through something. We also share title problems, but in the end, 1984 turns out to be far more suitable than, the last man in Europe.
