Why is Microsoft forcing Windows 10 Upgrades? Let me explain!

Microsoft is using underhanded tactics to force Windows 10 installs on users boxes to bolster their adoption #'s and to support their unified platform and telemetry collection ambitions. This video will break it down for you and show you how to protect yourself. ▼ Get my Windows 10 - We're Watching T-Shirt (limited quantities!) ▼ http://www.barnaculesshop.com/products/were-watching-black-t-shirt ▼ Disable Windows 10 Spying Video ▼ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1kGMCfb2xw ▼ Download Tools to Stop Windows 10 Forced Updates▼ GWX Control Panel - http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/ Never 10 - https://www.grc.com/never10.htm ▼ Roll back from forced Windows 10 upgrade (Within 30 days) ▼ http://www.pcworld.com/article/2960692/windows/how-to-uninstall-windows-10-and-go-back-to-windows-7-or-8.html ▼ Donations are always welcome & help me out a lot ▼ http://bit.ly/helpbarnacules ▼ Follow me on social media (updated daily!) ▼ http://twitter.com/barnacules [Giveaways] http://instagram.com/barnacules [Behind the scenes] http://facebook.barnnerd.com [More than 140 chars] ▼ Purchase MayFlower Objective 2 Headphone AMP + DAC ▼ http://bit.ly/1J0GZXK ^ - Use code "NERDGASM" to get $10 off any order over $99 ▼ Shut up and take me T-Shirt [One I'm wearing in this video] ▼ http://bit.ly/ShutUpBlack (Black Shirt) http://bit.ly/ShutUpGreen (Green Shirt) ^^ - Use code 'BarnaVlog for $2 off order ▼ Windows 10 - We're Watching T-Shirt ▼ http://bit.ly/WereWatching ^^ - Use code 'BarnaVlog for $2 off order ▼ Apple iBuggy T-Shirt ▼ http://bit.ly/iBuggyBlack (Black Shirt) http://bit.ly/iBuggyBlue (Blue Shirt) http://bit.ly/iBuggyHeavyMetal (Grey Shirt) ^^ - Use code 'BarnaVlog for $2 off order ▼ Purchase a Rad Power Bike (The bike I ride daily) ▼ http://bit.ly/RadPowerBikes ▼ Purchase a Rad Power Bike (The bike I ride daily) ▼ http://bit.ly/RadPowerBikes ▼ Discounts & Coupon Codes ▼ GT Omega Chairs @ http://bit.ly/1lA4h4K -or- Use code 'NERDGASM' at checkout! ▼ Check out my BLOG ▼ http://barnacules.wordpress.com ▼ Questions & Answers ▼ Q) I upgraded my media center (purchased TiVo) to windows 10 and it does now warn you that Windows Media Center will not be accessible after the upgrade and gives you the option to cancel. A) When I did my upgrades it was right after Windows 10 came out. Looks like enough people complained that they now show this which is fantastic. That being said I've already talked to a few people that had automatic upgrades occur during the night without the option to opt out because of media center. Q) You also have to understand that all other microsoft OS is no longer supported with updates. A) Wrong, The Microsoft life cycle requires them to support Windows 8.1 through 2023. They also have to continue to support Windows Vista through April 11, 2017 and Windows 7 through Jan 14th, 2020. Whoever told you that Microsoft will no longer support those platforms with updates is lying since it's required that they patch security holes & exploits as a part of ongoing support for those platforms. Q) Other operating systems like Android and iOS spy on you, how is this different? A) Microsoft always made it a point to call out those companies for the bullshit tactics they used and made Windows customers feel safer and more empowered by letting them know they wouldn't do crap like this (Look up 'Scroogled'). Microsoft decided that they were going to change directions when they laid off 1/3rd of their work force and embraced a new CEO that doesn't care about consumer trust. If Microsoft was untrustworthy out of the gate this wouldn't be an issue since people would expect it. But the fact they changed all their tactics and are absolutely 100% trying to deceive people to get an end result shows their true colors. ▼ Support me by sending BitCoin (Wallet Address) ▼ 18Su2PV63BabMZWwYEhgXC8obK1XBVveCp ▼ Get 10% off Kinesis Split Ergonomic Keyboards & Pedals ▼ http://www.kinesis-ergo.com/ [use code 'Barnacules' at checkout to get 10% off] ▼ Join my [email protected] team and help cure diseases with spare CPU/GPU cycles ▼ Barnacules Nerdgasm Team # 231300 Download Client @ http://folding.stanford.edu/ ** Top 10 contributers shown on Twitter weekly! -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Reviewing Latest 3D Printer Pen - Is it worth it?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xScZkXLCj4Y -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- ▼ I am now live streaming on Twitch so come give me a follow to receive notifications when I'm streaming ▼ https://www.twitch.tv/barnacules
