However, if a user has decided to use "Cloud" storage, that is the trade off the user has made (deliberately or unwittingly).
It's not a problem if your data is encrypted before it's uploaded and you hold the only key.

I read all this from Groze post #22

I'm personally don't see a problem.

Any time a government agency or any experts for that matter can help a manufacture of a operating system to make it more secure is not a bad thing. To me it's a good thing.

The N.S.A. or their counter parts from other nations really don't need help from the manufacture of the operating system to make a back door into computers, phones, ect.

Hackers (bad guys) do it all the time without governments help.

I cringe every time I see those commercials. To me, they are scary.

What should scare you is the fact that those children will work at jobs not invented yet, in professions not known yet and with equipment not even thought of yet.

That's not what scares me. What scares me is the way they will be indoctrinated to accept no personal privacy and whatever else that's thrown at them. They will make today's sheeple look fiercely independent.

Yep the young already have babycams on them after birth and protective parents for a long time after that so they would not know what privacy is until well after they move out of the nest

This is my own view here.
Some security holes in windows OS are intentionally coded to let in the government spies or even MS.
When theses holes are exposed as 'exploits' seemingly due to some kind of unintended coding error, they get patched, but all the time new ones are made to continue to allow access or not yet discovered. The patch introduces new intentional security holes. Imagine a screen sieve full of holes and some 'genius' coder discovers a single hole, all the time being unaware he is surrounded by other holes. These holes also at will can be opened like doors and also closed with coding variables. So a hole wont even look like a hole unless you have the door key knowledge to be able to open it.

We really don't know if there is a backdoor into systems even if remote desktop is turned off. I maybe a little paranoid but I am not that paranoid. I remember watching a tv show about the NSA I think it was on the P.B.S. network. Let's just say it was interesting tv program. If that tv program is still accurate a backboor is not the way they look for data. I wish I could remember the television program accurately but I can't. I want to try to be more accurate with my postings.
