What he said sounds good.
 
Have the EFF investigate Microsoft for malicious practices regarding Windows 10

It has got to be said, a lot of people are mad at Microsoft right now.

Microsoft's practices with their newest operating system, named Windows 10, has been ignorantly unethical at best and malicious at worst. The problems begin with the upgrades. Reports everywhere state that people are being tricked or forced into upgrading to Windows 10 from their current, preferred...

Oracle has spent many millions trying to get a chunk of Android, to no avail.

Microsoft Windows-as-malware resetting automatic updates.
Here we go again folks. Now Microsoft is scheduling your upgrade even if you've turned it down in the past. If you keep an eye on your updates, you can still re-refuse.

With all the older PCs out there, boxes with tricky hardware, weird legacy software, and so forth I'm surprised that Microsoft hasn't been sued yet by someone who's had there box ruined. 
Microsoft's attempts to get everyone on Windows 10 intensifies as it begins to auto-schedule PCs to upgrade to the new OS.

I doubt there's going to be all that many ruined boxes dotting the landscape. There aren't a lot of compatibility issues between Windows 7-10 for legacy applications. The way drivers, software, and permissions work are all basically the same, and they put a lot of effort into the upgrade process. It's totally valid to want the ability to choose those what happens to your computer and when, though.

The intro scene between Bruce and Clark seems kinda cool with a lot of tension. I especially appreciated the Joker suit cameo. Unfortunately it all went to hell when Lex entered the scene doing the bad-guy-acts-crazy routine. Also sucks they gave away the ending when Lex creates Doomsday from Zod's body. The Wonder Woman reveal was awkward too. +Tim Nguyen you were right.

Amen.
By forcing Windows 10 on users, Microsoft has lost the tenuous trust and credibility users had in the company.

This was a post I made 23 weeks ago before I saw SvB. I just stumbled upon it and it makes me mad. Spoiler incoming. This entire sequence was just a damn dream. The only way this will not suck is if during the Justice League movie Superman comes back as evil. Which is sorta possible because that dude in the time travel thing was telling Bruce "You were right about him."

Ok, so if that's the case I'm not so mad but if that's not the case I am mad. Either way, I'm not too happy because I have to wait. If my feelings change I'll edit this post.

You know, the evil Superman was actually one of the more interesting parts of that movie until the sequence suddenly ended and then nobody ever mentioned it again...

I originally thought the plot involved Lex Lexthor tricking Batman into thinking Superman is evil. From the looks of the trailer looks like Superman is pretty angry at Bruce. I hope its something more than just a misunderstanding designed by Lex that they figure out halfway through the movie then team up against him.
