    Default *** Serious privacy problems in Windows Media Player for Windows XP ***

    Read This one:

    http://www.computerbytesman.com/privacy/wmp8dvd.htm

    I apologize if this has already been posted. But Microsoft changed its privacy policy on Windoze Media Player 8.(Bundled in the great XP) If you have it, you may want to read this article. It appears that WMP 8 is reporting back to the mother ship exactly what you are watching and where you are going... Hmmmmm, and I thought Bill was concerned about our privacy...

    Or maybe he was only concerned about violating our privacy... We'll let you decide, I only report the facts... Oh wait, he's only the Chairman, and according to Enron, it's ok for a CEO not to know what is going on.... :-)

    Concerned.....You should be... :-) :-) :-)

    Just Kidding about the C-Theory folks.... :-)

    OH NO!!!!!!!

    Microsoft might find out that I like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Star Wars, and...heaven forbid... Shrek!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    :-roll

    Maybe if it was sending them my credit card number, phone number, blood type, etc... then I would be concerned.

    BTW, what does this have to do with flight simming?

    Hi Again,

    I didn't think it was rude at all... On the contrary, you were 100% correct... :-)
