Very possibly true, but it's naive to think you can prevent it by not installing the updates.  Only political/legal prohibition has any hope of doing that, and even that may fail.  Government employees bent on "national security" often seem to feel that the end justifies the means.  The motives of MS, Google, Facebook and other commercial entities to snoop and vacuum up people's information is less clear to me and is even more difficult to justify, but that's happening too.

Yeah, I understand that. I guess what I wrote was poorly worded. By the way I should have mentioned Apple too. I agree they are driven mainly by profit and to some extent by promoting some of their pet social causes, but just can't understand how glomming onto and keeping all that data converts to revenue, much less profit.

ill help shade some lights for you John

collecting this data allows the company to profile their end users

this profiling is then used to promote variety of business

the key is accurate profiling with regional promotion

to be more exact; as pioneers for this methodology

what we did in MSP (MySpace.com)back in the day

we devloped the ability to profile our end users

to their age appropriate sector; to their daily habit,

im not going into how we collected the data

just that we were permitted to do so when you singed up with us,

we will use everything we could get; automatically draw conclusions

now comes the best part for us; we then target a specific user with specific regional ads,

age appropriate and many other factors we calculated and cross referenced before we popped an ad on their screen

our artificial inelegance engine is what drove MSP behind all the freebie scene

we netted a 1/4 cent for each ad we pushed; and we pushed about 24-31 million worth of ads, daily!

Sounds pretty creepy, and those are just the legal, acknowledged uses.
 

when you singed up with us,

 

 

Was that Freudian?

not at all; just cleverly worded :D

most users never read the agreement
to be honest we never had any mal intension other than making profit and benefit all parties involved
we called it a win, win, win (www  ^_^) model

our end users got all our services for free = Win for our end users
we help local business beef up profits by profiling our users and helping them get potential buyers = Win for local business
we profited from this = Win for company employees who continues to operate and have jobs

Yep, the marketing folk will get you profile and target you. After looking up hotels in the Cosford area I got a lot of ads from other hotels in the region.

 

Although I cannot figure out why I get ads with pictures of semi naked Russian women who want to marry me.
