      Updates for Windows

      When I update Windows they first check that my copy is genuine.

      Presumably if it is not, you cannot get the updates.

      I recall reading that this practice was being legally challenged in the USA.
      I think it was on the grounds of an illegal invasion of privacy.

      I have not seen the outcome of the case. Has anyone else?





      My Sky Broadband Max is legal, fast and reliable...

      Actually, I think he's probably the biggest philanthropist there's ever been throughout history.

      As at Jan 2005 he had given away $28.8bn (that's about 13 thousand million pounds) and I believe he has committed to give away practically every $ he has. How about you?

      Not having a go at you dazzuk - just wanted to ensure that if anyone sees BG as a money grabbing evil whatever, they might reconsider and see that the truth is rather different.
