Separately, Microsoft filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice that said “Over the past 18 months, federal courts have issued nearly 2,600 secrecy orders silencing Microsoft from speaking about warrants and other legal process seeking Microsoft customers’ data; of those, more than two-thirds contained no fixed end date … These twin developments — the increase in government demands for online data and the simultaneous increase in secrecy — have combined to undermine confidence in the privacy of the cloud and have impaired Microsoft’s right to be transparent with its customers, a right guaranteed by the First Amendment.”
This I think is critical to realize. Usage of Microsoft leads to a massive compromise of privacy. It is clear that when a company such as MSFT admits to infringing on people’s rights in conspiracy with the US govt. It’s a serious issue.
When they surveil people’s data, they don’t know what they’re going to find. Even something like… surveil-ers would be able to snoop around, and then get an “AHA” moment once in a while… so that company is going to have an excellent return this year;;; and that agent goes ahead and buys up CALLS on that company’s stock or something to that effect.
I think this takes place more frequently than not, and is also difficult to enforce. In my estimation the server architecture has been deliberately perpetuated through govt stimulus in companies that collect and steal data. I think that a vast majority of the landscape in investments is also tainted with govt support to strictly perpetuate the grips of privacy theft, and ultimately theft of property and resources.
When hearing of … MSFT and block chain I just feel that it is a disservice not a gain for that group that MSFT adopted their object.
It is in the best interest to put data sinking behemoth companies to rest. Including microsoft OS; After these considerations (govt perpetuating) it is not surprising how few people are exposed to better alternatives like Ubuntu; macs are too expensive for the greater mass of people.
Even Apple can;t keep up with its own cloud service, although commendable how they try hard enough to figure out if their compromised or not.
