Is Microsoft spying on you?
Posted by mythoughtsandnews on July 9, 2006
HAVE you ever been to a department store or supermarket that goes through your bag to make sure you haven’t shoplifted? Necessary as it might be to stop shoplifters, I always felt as a consumer that such measures were inappropriate and reflected poorly on the stores. Such establishments might catch the odd shoplifter but they alienate thousands of legitimate customers who may never come back again.
Another way to get updates is by using the site called WindizUpdate which is for Firefox users. You could even get updates by downloading the AutoPatcher program which lets you pick and choose which updates to install.
I never use the Windows built-in updater or even go to the Microsoft site for updates.
