And they also made it so you cannot get rid of Cortana. I did one better though. I reasoned that Cortana was using the Bing search engine. So I did and nslookup on bing.com - grabbed the IP address and blocked it on my hardware firewall. Here's just a snippet from my logs since the update. Microsoft is really starting to piss me off. 2016-08-23 11:06:57 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=16983 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52586 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:06:57 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=16984 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52587 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:06:57 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=16985 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52588 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:06:57 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=16986 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52589 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:07:00 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=17001 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52587 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:07:00 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=17002 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52586 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:07:00 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=17003 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52589 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:07:00 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=17004 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52588 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:07:06 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=48 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=17025 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52587 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:07:06 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=48 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=17026 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52588 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:07:06 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=48 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=17027 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52586 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 2016-08-23 11:07:06 RV110W kern.warning ACL-Deny-L2W:IN=VLAN1 OUT=WAN SRC=192.168.1.100 DST=204.79.197.200 LEN=48 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=127 ID=17029 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=52589 DPT=80 WINDOW=8192 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0

Yeah - so the $12K Honda Civic at 40mpg with a 9 to 10 gallon gas tanks has a 360 to 400 mile range. Best electrics out there only get to about 200-250 miles on a charge. That would work for me for daily commute, but for longer trips a very fast charging method needs to be developed to say top a car to 85% charge in 10 minutes or less.
