Has anyone analyzed the data being sent? Or is this a big assumption? Could this be other apps that were installed by default 'calling home'? I'm not doubting that MS might do this, but in all fairness, this seems example seems like unsubstantial speculation....and a pretty weak 'test to boot. Remember that high school class who put sprouts by a wifi router and found the 'closer plants died'? I did the same thing for fun, and found the closer sprouts actually grew faster and more abundantly, probably since they were warmer. Shouldn't we suspend judgement until further tests and confirmation is made...?
