Windows 10

Yep, I bit the bullet and installed it.

I also followed Borepatch‘s advice, with regard to change the security settings.

Thus far (Day Three) it seems to work alright.  I previously was using Windows 7 Home, which I LOVED!  Of course, not unlike my ancient (three-year-old) Android cellular telephone, I was advised it would no longer be supported (as of some date).

So, I updated that, as well.  (I paid it off.  WTH!)

And, regardless my changing the security settings, I’m certain Microsoft will continue to follow my perusal of the Internet, and diligently pass along what it finds to governmental and corporate entities.

It’s already disconcerting that my new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 seems not only to know where I am in space, but remembers where I have been previously, and makes recommendations regarding where to go next!

(Note to self – Windows 10 resembles Android!  Who knew?)

The Singularity isn’t far off, and I expect Cortana to ask me, “What are you doing, Guffaw?” any day now.

The times – they are a changin’.

  1. Wait – you wanted privacy? What a quaint notion!

  2. There isn’t any privacy… If you touch the net at all, you’ve lost it… And cell phones are even worse.

  3. I’ve love 7 and I’m keeping it until I have no other choice!
