It used to be anyone could go to the Al Jazeera English website and watch a live stream.
Then they tried to sell out to the cable companies in the US (and failed, obviously), placing IP blocks on their video stream for anyone browsing to their site from an IP address inside the US.
I hope they'll go back to streaming in the US so I can punish them for their dissent by blocking their ads and watching their stream in my browser.
Forcing upgrade to Windows 10 is preparation for micropayments.
Microsoft's next step after they get everyone onto Windows 10 is to start charging a little it for everything.
Want to use a third party browser? $5.
Want to save files that are open? 10 cents per file.
Want to change your theme color? 99 cents.
Want Windows updates? Those will be $2 each, and if you don't install them your operating system will cease to function.
Pretty soon after that Microsoft will start force installing updates and debiting your bank account without permission, and you'll allow it because Microsoft spends more on lawyers in a year than your government spends on health care.
What are you gonna do?
Stop playing PC games?
How weirdly vague.
Ah yes, they're learning from the CIA and NSA:
Tell everyone you're going to stop, but just rename the process and keep doing the same old thing.
When they tell you they're going to stop doing something you don't like, you should be very worried.
Because it always, always means they're going to keep doing it, and they're going to do it more, but they're going to call it something else.
CIA, NSA and FBI have been doing this since their inception.
