Re: Embrace, Extend, Extinguish.

Colour me curious, but to what exactly do you believe that the "Extinguish" part of this phrase will be applied, and how?

... or is it the fact that this article mentions the words "Microsoft", "embrace" and "extend"?

For the record, I hate Microsoft's telemetry as much as the next reasonably clued-up person. But right now, I would trust them over a company who would, say, claim it doesn't need consent to store a person's health data.
