..To be used only in the event

of a disaster! :)

One really wonders how the CONTENTS of a Word document would help MS resolve a OPERATING SYSTEM PROBLEM

We have enough intrusions on our privacy as it is without worrying about what might happen to the contents of our computer in the hands of some malicious employee, perhaps even one in another country. Where does this end?

Another thing, an illusion of the name of a "black box" seems designed to put a better face on this than it deserves.

Black boxes surve a very useful purpose on aircraft.

The difference is obviously ignored that Black Boxes on airplanes record PUBLIC records, conversations, and data.

A better analogy would be with unauthorised eavesdropping on private conversations.

Microsoft wiretapping is more like it.
