They watch us play,
who needs the NSA?

According to the recently updated Microsoft Services Agreement—covering Xbox Live, and Xbox and Windows Games published by Microsoft—Microsoft can now disable pirated games from your computer. The clause can be found under section 7b, “Updates to the Services or Software, and Changes to These Terms.” It reads:

“We may automatically check your version of the software and download software updates or configuration changes, including those that prevent you from accessing the Services, playing counterfeit games, or using unauthorized hardware peripheral devices. You may also be required to update the software to continue using the Services.”

The clause was spotted by Alphr, and would suggest that Microsoft will disable pirated first-party games. The EULA also mentions “unauthorized hardware peripheral devices,” which is a much more fuzzy description. Is it controllers that have been specifically hacked to enable an unfair advantage, or something much broader?

    Welcome to the new Windows 10, hope you don’t mind being observed at every ‘click’.
    We are the Windows Police and we will decide what you can or cannot connect to your computer.
    Do not try to defy us, you cannot win, we have the power to disable you.

    Who needs the NSA when Microsoft is monitoring your every keystroke and sending the information who-knows-where?

    They know where you live, they know what you watch, they know who you know, they know you will not give up on-line activities, sitting ducks are we.

    A very necessary element in a truly Fascist society. hunker down, we will be here for a while.

    So apparently what we have is a controlled media and controlled computing not much left. I give it five years and we all will be prisoner’s of what we now call the government. We are close to it now but with a distracted society no one notices how convenient.

    And now a yellow VW beatle, a yellow jeep, a yellow minivan and an orange car. Ugh.


  7. David B. Benson says:

    Evening stick walk in only 38 minutes.

    Day 3: 78+38=116 minutes.

    Saw the yellow jeep again. As it is a convertible with a black cover it doesn’t look as tasteless as the others, especially the two seater sports car.

    Bed finished, Den?


    • Den says:

      Near done, a strap to install to pick up the back when the thing is extended out, some finish needed on the oak part, futon mattress delivered Friday PM.

      It looks like the internet demons have gone to bed, all is well so far.

      That phone keyboard was unmanageable, it kept putting in the wrong characters and every third letter it was asking if I wanted English? Someone was screwing with me today online, no sir, don’t like it one bit.

      If it is so, which I have no reason to doubt judging from the go-around I was getting, it shows how far someone can go to interfere with what you do online on a personal level, hacker, microsnot geek, whatever, disturbing what we have gotten ourselves into.
