All my inboxes ever seem to get anymore are newsletters or ads from Amazon.
No idea why.
I'll take it.
Now I have a headache. Everything I've seen and read seems to suggest that Windows 10 is going to be a reasonably good upgrade. Now, we have this. Microsoft scanning all our files just to sell us ads. At least it can be disabled but it takes way too many steps to lock it all down. It should just be a simple switch that is disabled by default with a message that says this: "Do you want us to sell you personalized ads and make Cortana better by allowing us to scan your personal documents? Yes/No." There, problem solved. Easy for people to understand. This isn't hard Microsoft, it really isn't.
And the freemium solitaire game that Microsoft thinks is worth people paying money for. No, it's not. I'm hoping about fifty other developers have made a version that is freemium free version by this point. Paying to get rid of ads for a game that has never had ads before...I just...can't. It's hard to find Freemium/Free-to-Play business models that aren't toxic/anti-consumer anymore and I wish that would stop. Use it where appropriate and make it a value to pay into, not just something where I can skip ads for six months. Those are the games that not only make people happy to pay for it but guarantee that they'll keep paying money to play the game. Everyone wins.
Hope everyone else is having a better day than I.
I'm not taking it seriously but I do want this up here in case it does happen...because that would be awfully hilarious.
Taking a look at a light adventure game that came out last year. Had some fun with this one but there's some mechanical weakness here. Enjoy!

I will give Microsoft some credit, they do allow us to turn all of this tracking off. I just think it should be just a little bit simpler so that people understand what they're getting into. If you need someone else to explain what each setting does, you've goofed somewhere.
