Have you noticed that your computer is continually downloading stuff?  Usually it comes in the form of “updates” when you’re shutting down your computer.  I always wonder what, exactly, the computer is downloading when this happens.  The computer gives me no clues.  For all I know, it could be something subversive and yucky that doesn’t enhance the functioning of my computer one whit.  Why, there oughta be a law!  I suggest a download disclosure law that requires companies to tell us what they are downloading to our computers in the form of updates and how these updates are supposed to function.  Of course, most of us might find this to be a needless complication, but we’ve got to get over our habit of letting privacy matters slide.
