The cyclical nature of negative topics posted on the Xbox One board go round and round.
Round and round.
Round and round.


Facts are neither negative or positive. They simply exist. That certain facts upset certain fanboys is unfortunate.

If true, that's millions a year that the government could afford not to pay, to lower taxes.

That was a pretty interesting read, right from the article...

"Don't get too mad about this. As many experts told The Daily Dot, who got to analyze the documents before the SEA released them publicly, it's actually a really good thing that Microsoft charges the FBI for these requests, if for no other reason than it leaves a paper trail. Actually, when companies like Google and Yahoo charge the government for access to data, that money can potentially go toward making free services—like email—better. Indeed, these services are getting better and more secure."

Proof or just another article?

Cbf reading.


where have you been dude?...emperor has no clothes now. In case you didn't know, Gizmodo is part of Gawker and blatantly pro/faux-leftist pro-establishment sites out there. Gizmodo and kotaku are probably the only sites in the network that still have some autonomy (though less and less)

I love topics like this. Everyone thinks our government is some brilliant big brother figure. I have worked for the government. It takes a dozen people to make paper supply purchases.

how does it make it more secure if they whore your account to the government and any marketers or whatever industry that wants to pay or that they already have a partnership with? - in which case the more people with their hands on anything about you, the less secure something is. The same principal behind why a store or bank doesn't give access to the safes and vaults to more than 2 people. They should want to better their products out of competition but what's the point if everything is monopolize or on the same side. Microsoft were the FIRST company to willingly volunteer to help out and become a sellout/shill and gates is even throwing out the idea of tracking people's lives before, during, and after college to sell to private industry and big brother...and if anything I learned all these years is that whenever they preemptively have to publicize ideas like this is that they're already under way through backroom agreements or their intent is total bull****.
