Aarrgh! Spring Updates threatened for Windows 10
« on: March 09, 2018, 17:40 »
The next version of Windows 10 looks set to shake things up in the way people switch between devices, and now, reportedly, has a name: Spring Creators Update.  With Windows 10 being the “final” version of Windows, updates like this are essentially the new versions, with the recent Creators Update, and then the Fall (autumn) Creators Update each bringing big new features and revisions. So what does the next version of Windows 10 have in store?

Yet another worrying time for all of us.   ::)  I'm quite happy with the way it is now.

Will Cortana have the Alexa creepy laugh?  Gotta be able to keep up to date with all the different OSs.

The thought of giving Micro$oft access to my spoken word fills me with horror.

They and others already have it i'm sure. 
Last year I did an experiment saying the same phrase over and over again in front of my laptop, in this case "fly fishing" (which i'm not remotely interested in and have never purchased anything to do with fishing). Sure enough within a few hours I was getting targetted adverts for fishing rods and the like.   :woot:

My tablets are not kept in the living room and I don't have microphones attached to my computers.  None of my tablets have the microphone enabled (although I do understand this permission can be overridden).

I've heard stories like yours too many times before, Dave.

I thought you were going to say J R Hartley knocked on your door.   ;D

With any luck, these Spring updates will actually wait until Spring, and then they will never bloody happen.   >:(

 :pmsl:  More snow on the way!  My three year old grandson used Alexa to order something for an online game but fortunately didn't have the password for payment.

Oh bu88er.  Whilst following the advice given on Simon's link I accidentally clicked on Install Updates.  Who knows what the future holds now?
