You are of course aware a lot of data is *already* tracked? On certain websites, on your PC, Phone, Tablet, Smart TV. But these are used for particular features, advertising, marketing and testing purposes. Heck, they can even be used for tracking unlawful activity, though rare for anything to happen, people get caught for it. It's just there's so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so much data, it's not like they can have people watching your every move.
If Microsoft are found to be dishonest on this, there will be several countries with data protection laws they're in violation of (and possibly others) and could easily result in lawsuits and legal action. Given the number of people paranoid by such things and given a computer savvy person can test what data is being sent and received on their network, it wouldn't be too hard for such a person to out Microsoft should they be dishonest. Some bloke already did this with Smart TV's
and said situation got a response.
I am sure the tinfoil hat people will think, "yep, total evil corporation right there" in reading that, but I am sure the programmers in us are relating and thinking, 'unfortunate software bug'. And the gamers can always relate in that respect too.
Of course, I don't think you should be too complacent, as governments aren't all sunshine and rainbows. But I wouldn't say it warrants paranoia.
