black box 4 windows?


hey guys check out this article: http://www.webpronews.com/news/itnew...Mysteries.html

Quote:
The new mechanism will work like an aircraft's black box, said Gates, allowing detailed information like which programs were running at the time of the error and the contents of documents that were being created.

Privacy concerns were not left unaddressed though, as the black box allows users to edit what information is being sent to Microsoft.

This would not, however, prevent employers from being able to see a list of websites visited, videos running, or contents of IM's being sent.
microsoft innovation right? (or is that an oxymoron)

when i read this i was thinking "thank god im not using windows"
