After being kindly directed by Garry Knight to an article I read not long ago about the direction M$ is going I was dumbfounded to say the least. I think computers are a mysterious piece of electronics many people have in their homes that they understand very little about.
I had this thought of going to the local Wal-Mart shopping and having to sign an agreement to allow them to periodically come to my home and search through my things to see what products I buy and what products are coming from their store. I thought about them coming back to my place to check up on me and make sure that Christmas CD I bought was only being played on my home stereo and not in my car, but rather making sure I bought two or three of the same CD.
What an invasion of privacy that would be. Sounds like the KGB or something. Nobody would stand for it. As a matter of fact I could just see boycots, lawsuits and protests of every kind. Yet some companies seem to be allowed to do that with almost no questions asked.
