  1. Microsoft is the devil?
    To be honest, i think the vast monopoly that is Google is far worse. Microsoft haven't spent the last 20 years learning and storing every bit of information there is to know about you.

    I bet if i knew your name, i could find out what model of computer or keyboard you typed this up on, as well as what you are going to eat tomorrow (Yes, Google knows your routine)
