A PR disaster: Microsoft has lost trust with its users, and Windows Recall is the straw that broke the camel's back (www.windowscentral.com)

It’s a nightmare scenario for Microsoft. The headlining feature of its new Copilot+ PC initiative, which is supposed to drive millions of PC sales over the next couple of years, is under significant fire for being what many say is a major breach of privacy and security on Windows. That feature in question is Windows Recall, a...

That’s usually what I think too, but after watching how Twitter’s gone to shit since the two big user departures, I think this could legitimately affect Microsoft’s bottom line.

Yup. It’ll depend on how they handle Recall at the institutional level.

It’s a given that hospitals and law firms will have to turn it off, as they’re required by law to honor privilege. We’ll see what choices they make.

I find the nosedive in Twitter’s stock price these last few years encouraging. It seems for many there is a red line.

Respectfully, it’s not.

The user departures, and response to further enshittify, have driven their stock price into the ground.

That’s definitely going to be a problem for them, yes, because it’s also going to drive a ton of traffic to Linux and Linux is going to get even better.

They say that every election year.

Don’t just sign a petition.

Delete your facebook and instagram.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

Nice!

I did not, though my facebook is deleted now. I just got sick of how it was making me miserable every time I opened it, so a year ago I nuked it.

I still have an instagram for my business, but once I have Cara up and running, I’m going to delete all the content there as well.

Same, doing what I can within my own little slice of the world.

I actually switched to Linux Mint two weeks ago and do 95% of my computing on that OS. (And ANYTHING requiring privacy) I’m a gamer, so I opted for a dual boot, and the only thing I use windows for is playing my games now.

FlashMobOfOne,

Glad to hear it!

For me it’s been hit or miss. I’m fairly tech savvy and able to work through things with the info on Proton DB, but I’ve had several games that just simply weren’t compatible.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

Yup.

My last flight a year ago was so bad I’m just going to drive from now on. I don’t care if I have to take an extra day of PTO.

This is why every anti-nazi protest needs to have everyone armed. Those bastards won’t show their faces around people who can and will fight back.

Bingo.

After watching how similar business practices torched Twitter, I think this dude is underestimating the general public’s commitment to just sail the high seas.

It's been around a year since a lot of us quit Reddit, myself included. I'm happy with Lemmy, but I still feel a bit lost online since leaving the old site. Discussion?

Been thinking of making a post like this for some time, apologies if some of this is not completely relevant: this community seems more like it’s about Reddit the platform/product than Reddit the social “thing”, but I’m sure a lot of people have similar experiences to mine. Maybe on some instances more than others....

I’ve used reddit like 3 times since.

I don’t miss it one bit.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

Christ, that’s so horrific to consider, all around.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

There’s no ‘want’ to it.

They already have. Idaho got away with criminalizing abortion, which means 2/3 of the states will do the same next session, just like how 2/3 of the states still allow for you to be paid $7 an hour.

In the absence of a true opposition party, the wolves are feasting.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

That’s the thing.

You used to be able to count on Democrats to fight for social issues, at least. The Dems we have now are only concerned with increasing their own wealth, and that was very well-evidenced by their response to the Roe vs Wade leaks. Do you recall their response? They used it to fundraise and did nothing else. ($80,000,000 was the cost of your rights to bodily autonomy, in case you’re curious.)

And now 2/3 of the states will get away with criminalizing abortion within another year or two, tops.

I remember when, in his first SOTU, Joe Biden mocked the Defund The Police movement, and called for increased police funding, even though the police are overtly fascist in most of the country and we all had just watched them proudly execute a man in the streets.

Now he’s sending more bombs to Israel.

If you’re telling yourself the Dems are the answer, I think you’re just asleep at the wheel here.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

Not unlike all the excuses we’re seeing for genocide now that it’s Biden shipping the bombs over to Israel.

I only switched this week, and I kinda disagree with the meme.

It’s both.

I’m only dual booting because I’m a gamer and some games only run on Windows.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

Yep, I know. I have to log into Windows to manage the files on my Huawei tablet.

That’s okay. I can do 99% of what I want on Linux without Microsoft snooping on me.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah, about half of my library already runs on Linux.

The problem I have now is that, soon, I’m gonna want to do a reinstall so Linux can have more disk space. :) My PC’s pretty fast, so the reboot doesn’t really bug me all that much.

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

Sounds awesome. I average 12k steps a day, might as well do so while enjoying a fun game. :)

Not at all.

Democrats, by and large, don’t accept any criticism of their party, preferring instead to make excuses or feign powerlessness on the part of their elected officials. (They share that trait with Republicans, in fact.)

And then an instance happens where having the same position as the Republicans means you either have to accept genocide or pretend in your head that you’re still morally superior while the president you want us all to vote for sends the weapons over to make it happen.

It’s like that meme with the red button. Your cognitive dissonance is impressive.
