Submission + - Mark Shuttleworth Addresses Ubuntu Privacy Issues: Is It Enough? (

sfcrazy writes: Mark Shuttleworth has for the first time talked about the privacy issues in Ubuntu Dash after being criticized by EFF and FSF. He mentioned some changes in the way use can 'disable' the search results. However the company has showed that under no circumstances they will disable the onlin search by default as demanded by EFF and FSF. Shuttleworth was simply spinning the wheel moving things around to give an impression that something has been done where as the core problem remains — Dash sents keystrokes by default and legally every user agrees to send such keystrokes to server to be shared with partners like Facebook.
