    Exclamation BlackBerry Ready to Hack Its Users If the Government Wants It To

    BlackBerry Ready to Hack Its Users If the Government Wants It To
    Company CEO says they’d try to break encryption if needed
    By Bogdan Popa

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/black...o-518296.shtml

    "If you were still looking for a reason why BlackBerry is currently holding an insignificant market share in the mobile business, here you go."
    "The company’s CEO has just confirmed that they’re ready to break customer encryption should they be asked by the government, basically admitting they are willing to compromise the security of any user at a time when other tech giants are fighting against law enforcement to prevent this from happening."
    "And it doesn’t end here. While most large tech companies provide transparency reports to disclose how many requests they received from governments to access user data, not only that BlackBerry never did it, but they also don’t plan on doing it anytime soon. And the reason is odd, to say the least."




    ================================================== ==

    Very Interesting Information for Blackberry users to be well aware of!

    Exclamation Microsoft Finally Brings Forced Windows Upgrades to an End

    Microsoft Finally Brings Forced Windows Upgrades to an End
    By Bogdan Popa

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/micro...d-517471.shtml

    "The Get Windows 10 app, which was developed from the very beginning to provide a smoother way to upgrade from Windows 7 and 8.1 to Windows 10 by automatically downloading the necessary files, proved to be a huge pain in the neck for users, especially because in some cases, the whole thing happened without their consent."
    "This is how, despite refusing the upgrade to Windows 10, some users ran out of storage space or even bandwidth, simply because the Get Windows 10 app downloaded several gigabytes of data to prepare the PC for the new operating system."
    "Truth be told, the forced upgrades have until now caused pretty big problems to Microsoft, including a lawsuit that the company lost in mid-2016. The software giant agreed to pay $10,000 in damages to Teri Goldstein of Sausalito, California who complained that her computer was automatically upgraded to Windows 10, making it substantially slower and impacting the work she was doing at her travel agency."





    ================================================== ==

    Perhaps that is why so many are sticking to their old OS despite they not being supported any longer by MS? Too many problems still to be ironed out with Windows 10.

    Exclamation Microsoft Sued After Windows 10 Upgrade “Destroyed Users’ Computers”

    Microsoft Sued After Windows 10 Upgrade “Destroyed Users’ Computers”
    By Bogdan Popa

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/micro...s-514255.shtml

    "In the lawsuit documents (via The Reg), the plaintiffs explain that Microsoft did not “exercise reasonable care in designing, formulating, and manufacturing the Windows 10 upgrade,” becoming responsible for damages caused to users in the form of data loss and hardware issues."
    "The plaintiffs are seeking class-action status, explaining there are hundreds of thousands of angry users in the United States who got their computers broken down because of the forced upgrade to Windows 10."
    "Microsoft has already issued a statement as a response to the lawsuit, explaining that these claims are without merit, as all Windows 10 users had 30 days to downgrade to their previous operating systems after the switch to Windows 10 if they weren’t satisfied with the new OS."





    ================================================== ==

    That's why many still as of this day have not upgraded to Windows 10. First there was the spyware concern that was being so talked about on the Internet plus other problems. Now this.
