Will M$ be forced to do a u-turn?

~Apart from commentards, Win10 Facebook / Google like slurping rarely ever gets a mention in the MSM or by Gartner analysts etc. But M$ Win10 slurping is a huge turn off. Even to the sceptical, look at Google / Gmail...

~ By year-end Gmail will no longer slurp emails allegedly. The change arose from corporate pressure / lagging Cloud sales. So maybe M$ will have to eat its pride some day. The whole Xbox-180 fiasco showed M$ can recant.

~ The key question as per Google-Gmail is this... Will Enterprise customers eventually start asking uncomfortable questions about whether M$ is slurping info from them as well as Home users? Will that knock-on hurt Azure sales?
