So, this week, most of the computer users of the world were asked a simple question, do you want to upgrade to Windows 10? The first thing you learn about Windows 10 is the fact that it's free.. well kind of. If you're upgrading from an earlier version of Windows ( 7+ ), and you do it within the first year that Windows 10 is out, than you get it for free. Seems like a pretty great offer right?
There's a bit of a famous internet quote from a few years ago that says, "if you're not paying for something, you're not the customer; you're the product being sold". It's not a new concept at all. As far back as the early days of radio and television, you see this concept in action. The radio station isn't selling you the music, it's selling the audience listening to the music to the advertisers. The difference is, the radio never asked you to give up your privacy at the same time.
