    Microsoft worked with NSA to allow them access to all MS products.

    "The documents show that the NSA had access to most of Microsoft's flagship products including Hotmail, Outlook.com, SkyDrive and Skype. In the case of Outlook.com, Microsoft reportedly worked with the NSA to help it get around its own data-scrambling scheme that would have concealed messages from the agency."

    So much for folks thinking "THE CLOUD" is going to be secure.

    No one ever said it was going to be "secure." They just promised convenience.

    The real hot topic right now is the XBOX One. Look at the features, then look at the fact that MS is helping the NSA. The claim is that the XBOX One will be a government spy machine.

    Safe? Secure? I'm not worried. Most of this stuff is horse hockey to begin with. Secondly, I don't own an Xbox. :smilewinkgrin:

    Privacy? Liberties? Bill of rights? Bah! Humbug! Who needs em anyway? If ya got nothing to hide ya got nothing to worry about!
