Personally, I sit on the side where I believe that the data Microsoft receives is intended to make our lives better. I sat in Redmond a couple days last year and watched the telemetry services demoed and explained. Our data is never sifted through manually, by human hands &ndash; it&rsquo;s all delivered en masse and essentially queried by robots.</p></div><form action="/poll/01112016" accept-charset="UTF-8"
