All Microsoft updates phone home

I have gotten out of the habit of reading those wonderful privacy statements from software vendors, jaded and cynical from their weaseling out of notifying me of changed by placing the burden upon me to view their changes. And, just by agreeing once, I have agreed to any further changes, even if I don’t know about them, read them, or am notified by the company.

So, no we find out that all of those updates that Microsoft asks, nay even demands that we install, are passing information back to Microsoft. See WGA Notifications and download and install telemetry
