    Evidently they didn't see where you can just turn those options off.

    if you have a webcam on your pc or laptop, it takes a picture every few minutes and sends it to Microsoft... doesn't get much worse than that

    That's true, just the other day my goddamned laptop took this embarrassing picture of the family dog. Now that shit is everywhere!

    Except the question is why would they do that anyway? So you can have one of those picture a day collages of you getting older by the year is my guess.

    How would you turn off the screenshot reporting? It seems on that Youtube video they went to some trouble to hide that. I don't imagine there is a simple on/off switch for something like that.

    You can't turn off the data mining... because they can remotely turn it back on. And they DO turn it back on for everyone who opted out of all that shit. /g/ has been on it from day 1, dissecting exactly what is being sent and if there's a way out of it... and right now, there isn't.

    I'm not that overally worried about them getting a bunch of pictures of me staring at a computer screen. It's not like they're going to find out a bunch of info about me. Like OMG they'll see that I haven't gotten around to shaving the last few days, really damning images of me that would result in for them.

    Just put something over your cam when not in use. And if any government type or men in black knock at your door greet them with an assortment of uppercuts.
