Agreed. I find it vastly amusing to hear praise for Apple because they're applying some sort of obfuscation to the telemetry they collect ("Proprietary and totally secret, of course. Oh, what telemetry is Apple collecting? That's secret too but, trust us, Apple cares about your privacy.") and yet people are up in arms about Windows 10 telemetry and little, if anything, is ever said about the telemetry collected by Android. How does that work?

I agree, I just wanted to point out that it is slightly different, as historically microsoft has had a "pay us and we dont care what you do" (my words) agreement with users, whereas google has always been a free and ad supported company. But yeah there is a triple standard here.
