Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 on Xbox Series X is the best looking game I’ve ever played.

@fellows depends on taste, I'm enjoying it but it's super on the rails.

For those who aren’t aware, Microsoft have decided to bake essentially an infostealer into base Windows OS and enable by default.

From the Microsoft FAQ: “Note that Recall does not perform content moderation. It will not hide information such as passwords or financial account numbers."

Info is stored locally - but rather than something like Redline stealing your local browser password vault, now they can just steal the last 3 months of everything you’ve typed and viewed in one database.

@mjf_pro you can just turn off the feature in Settings

@ATLeagle you don’t need to, you can just disable it in Settings

And if you didn’t believe me.. found this on TikTok.

There’s an MSFT employee in the background saying “I don’t know if the team is going to be very happy…”

They should probably be transparent about it, rather than telling BBC News you’d need to be physically at the PC to hack it (not true). Just a thought.

@unlucio for what it’s worth, I can’t see any sign data leaves the device, including telemetry or metadata

@tfb it’s enabled by default, and IT department can force enable or disable it.

I ponder if Microsoft's engineers are following the SQLite code of ethics, since they're using it in Windows OS with Copilot+ Recall? :D https://sqlite.org/codeofethics.html

So the code underpinning Copilot+ Recall includes a whole bunch of Azure AI backend code, which has ended up in the Windows OS. It also has a ton of API hooks for user activity monitoring.

Apps themselves can also search and make themselves more searchable.

It opens a lot of attack surface.

The semantic search element is fun.

They really went all in with this and it will have profound negative implications for the safety of people who use Microsoft Windows.

Like @Quinnypig, I’d love if Google went on the record about what happened with this one.

https://www.unisuper.com.au/contact-us/outage-update

Tl;dr is an entire org got wiped, and they’re trying to suggest it’s some kind of Google Cloud issue as the cause.

GossiTheDog,

Google have issued a blog about the Google Cloud customer they accidentally deleted.

A Google staff member accidentally set a termination date on their account, effectively, which deleted several thousand of their VMs. https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/infrastructure/details-of-google-cloud-gcve-incident

    Yes, I've discovered it's possible to build outposts into the sea, and raise animals in farms... so now I'm a sea farmer.
