Big Brother W10 "The Service" Continues To Morph: Ads In Explorer, Throws Users A Bone On Mandatory Updates

Follow up on: Windows 10 "The Service" 1st-Anniversary Update 8-2-16: Cortana Gets Tentacles, No Off Switch -- Spirit Guides For All 8-2-16 "Probably the biggest change with the introduction of W10 is the concept of Windows now being a "service", ...With W10 redefining the operating system as a service, updates are now mandatory. Not only security updates, but also the very system features. Like it or not, whatever new thing comes out is getting downloaded and installed automatically on W10 systems. No 'off' button on this one. And this for "the life of the device" says Microsoft. In other words, as radically Big-Brother as W10 is here now right out of the box, what it might look like in one year, two years, five years...Well, the ZWO MS-branch already made the answer to that question known back in 2012 when Windows 8 was first released: "All I wanna be is everything..." link ..." [see post]
W10 "The Service" is still only about one and a half years old, but with it's mandatory updating, it has been continually 'morphing' since that beginning. Prediction on that: The morphing is just getting warmed up. As stated in the above 'follow up', as 'W10' continues to 'update' itself, what it is in another two or three or five years or so...well... whatever they want it to be... is the answer. And what should it be supposed 'they' want it to be? See answer to that directly above, last sentence. Big Brother is playing for keeps.

The next major update reportedly is scheduled for roll-out soon - mid-April 2017. No doubt lot's of 'surprises' to be bundled in that mandatory major-update. You get whatever Microsoft says - they own it not you. In other words, that computer running W10 is in actuality nothing more than a Big Brother home portal. In the meantime though, just because the next big one is not yet ready does not mean that there's no morphing going on. With W10 there is always to be morphing going on. And that way the average person using it then becomes complacent, and becomes accustomed to having surrendered their digital autonomy to BB. It becomes normal. Another update for the BB home portal? - oh okay whatever. For example, the latest surrender of personal digital control is W10 users are now finding ads showing up in personal file folders:

But with all this mandatory morphing going on, and so much more to come, apparently Microsoft has now decided to throw users a bone and 'allow' them to 'delay' the mandatory-update process for a more convenient time. No more updates having the computer shut off and restart itself right in the middle of doing something. No, now the user can actually have a say. Isn't that great. The W10 user gets to have a tiny little bit of control over his own computer. Big Brother is so considerate isn't he. Not stop the mandatory morphing of course, just delay it...with nag reminders daily though after a set time of 35 delay-days expires:

Windows 10 Will No Longer Force 'Immediate' Updates, But...

[3-7-17] Windows 10 will no longer automatically take control of your computer, and flip the reset switch, at the worst moments imaginable...Starting this spring...there will be no limit on the number of times you can delay a Windows Update. Each time you hit the Snooze button, you'll be able to push it out three more days, until 35 days have passed...Even after that, you'll still be able to press a new "Remind Me Tomorrow" button to push it out again and again, one day at a time.

Windows 10 "is a service" citizen - in other words, we control the computer, not you...
Oh, and we've got an "update for you" - You can count on it!
New W10 delay option...with endless nags after the set time. That is called throwing users a bone. W10 still dictating. Still morphing itself into the Brave New World home portal for systematic IoT citizen-control. - But you can delay it for a month citizen...be thankful for that much...BB

Windows 10 'the service' - an open portal to...they're not telling - Recommend do not get sucked in
