I'm still having some angst about how my computer is going to adjust to one of the new OS's/Browsers
What bugs me about this commercial? They give the impression, that these kids won't have to change from Windows 10, ever?!?!  I hate being a slave to all of these "please upgrade your browser" messages.

I'm guessing that that first one might have to log in with her smile.   Something about her says there might not be much higher level functioning in her future.

I still run OS X 10.6.8 on the laptop and a partition of my main HD on the desktop, because upgrading to 10.7 or higher (OS X is at 10.10 now, I think) would kill older applications I have like Photoshop and whatnot. I'd have to buy a ton of software, and I just ain' gunna do it.

Safari, OS X's native browser, stopped updating for 10.6 a long time ago, so for a lot of websites I have to use Firefox. Firefox updates every 4 friggin days. It gets old. Sometimes you just want to pop on a website, troll some little douche, and pop back off. Who has time for all these updates? The updates take longer than what I came on to do!

I get the same thing with my consoles. "There have been 800 updates since you last logged on, install now or quit"... or some such nonsense. I have ADD, and a ton of options for things to do with my spare time. If I have to sit and watch an update screen for 5 minutes, I'm going to lose interest and go grab a ball-in-a-cup or something.

Log in with my smile? really? That's supposed to make me feel "secure"? Microsoft, you're going to create a whole new breed of sickos: People who will cut off your face if they want into your computer. I've seen it. Loki gouged out an eye to open a door. Lots of severed hands have been used on scanners... No thanks. I'll stick with my good, old-fashioned "forget password, jump through recovery hoops" stone-knives-and-bear-skins ways. If someone wants into my sh*t, they can Ancestry.com my paternal grandmother's maiden name, and I get to keep my pretty mug... pretty.

I can forsee facial recognition being a problem too if a family member needs to get into a computer for emergency information and I couldn't tell them the password because it needs my face and I'm not there.

sorry, microsoft, but i still like the concept known as privacy so if you'd kindly F off with you're mass spy OS that'd be great.

i guarantee you that a good number of users will be ignorant of the privacy settings and thus be selling they're personal info/all computer privacy to microsoft with this.

oh and that whole "the info we gather will be used to bring a better user experience and to protect our users" stuff? i am NOT a mindless IDIOT you BS'ing scumbags! i KNOW that the info you gather will be going to ad companies since ads are pretty much BUIT-IN on the windows 10 OS itself! as well as likely police or other places if they find info on you doing anything they consider bad.

i'll stick with 7 and keep waiting for an actual good OS and not an OS built out of spyware.

oh and say hi to cortana for me. she'll just be gathering info on everything you say when active so even talking around 10 isn't safe.

That's actually what Microsoft intends. They're supposedly going to start numbering like Apple with 10.1, 10.2, and so on. Doesn't change the fact that this commercial is awful, though.

The thing I don't get about this commercial is the statement about the kids "growing up" with Windows 10. WTF? Sounds cute, but is demonstrably suspect.

A quick look at the history of Windows upgrades would lead one to believe that you'd have to grow up pretty quick, seeing as how the longest span between updated versions of Windows is barely a few years.

Your kid might be BORN with Windows 10, but will likely grow up with Windows 14. (Or whatever).

Who gives a sh!t anyway?

With any luck, Windows will go out the window and something that actually works properly will take its place.

Whatever that is, THAT'S what our kids need to be growing up with!

yeah...apparently they're planning on having they're planning on having they're spy/adware OS as the last version of windows.

http://tinyurl.com/of7c689

granted, it probably doesn't take too much to spook the hosts/owners of torrent sites, they're being paranoid probably saves them trouble in the long run. but yeah, have fun with this bit of news.

just one more reason for me to stick with W7 and stay as far from W10 as possible.

Yea, there's something not quite right about that first kid. I am a horrible person for thinking that but I really don't care.

I agree. I used Windows NT at work with no major problems. Windows 98SE was fine at home. New computer with XP was fine until Service Pack 1 or was it 2 that was more virus than update. I still use an old HP with XP SP3 to burn DVDs. It is not connected to the internet so I don't worry about lack of support. The computer I'm posting on has Windows 7 Professional and has worked fine so far.

more W10 news: http://www.techtimes.com/articles/79546/20150827/torrent-tracking-websites-ban-windows-10-amid-privacy-concerns.htm

^^careful if you like to torrent stuff as some trackers will now ban you just for using that OS. which, given how much info W10 gathers, IS an understandable response imo.

and then the latest scare concerns this: http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2015/08/28/latest-windows-10-privacy-scare-revolves-around-family-accounts/ (yes, i know, it's FOX but i think they raise a point in this case.)

i can see this as a good thing to a certain extent. such as, if you're kid is checking out illegal things (more so than torrents or video game ROMs/ISOs that is >.>) or if they're search results and whatnot are showing signs of depression but do you really have to monitor every single little thing they do while online?

privacy, it IS a thing, microsoft. stop trying to infringe on/invade it so severely. i mean, remember the Care.com commercial where the dumbass says she wants to talk about internet safety then walks over, kisses the girl on the head JUST so she can see what the kid is doing, then walks off having not said a thing about safety or ANYTHING?

that commercial wasn't about anything other than invading you're kids privacy. so yeah, microsoft, let parents see some things but NOT every little detail and deny children any sort of privacy at all!

seriously, who came up with all this stuff for windows 10? cause i'd like to see the guy who came up with all this BS suffer to an extreme. Angry

Ahem... I started a thread about this commercial a looooong time ago...
PC: Hey, Mac! Windows 10 is out! And it's not going to have any of the problems that Windows 8 had! Trust me!

Mac: Where have I heard that before?...

Too many spaces in your link. Thanks for the info. I don't use Windows, but I know most others do. But thanks all the same.

well, i tried pasting the link in the quick reply box down here but the site kept giving me errors (i was not doing anything wrong, CIH.com!) so i went with the old "spaces in the link" method after hitting the "post reply" button to make sure it worked.

Thank you Tiki and i8 - I didn't dare say in in the company I was with when I saw this ad, but I found this whole concept damn creepy and the kids are all more than a little "off-kilter".  (I hate having children peddled to me, as if I am under a moral obligation to have to buy this crap to ensure that they have a happy life.)

sorry but lol @ moral obligation

morality, like so many other terms human have come up with over time, = OPINIONS

good/bad
good/evil
right/wrong
moral/immoral

so many human made concepts based purely on opinion. example: what one sees as good or bad, another could just as easily see as the opposite. and so, such terms are nothing but opinions.
