Hi Carlos,
You are forgiven! Smile! I thank you for this. I didn't go online yet to
read this article, but please correct me if I'm wrong in assuming Google had
a policy to scan private emails? I do have a gmail account on my pc and my
iPhone. I would hate to think Google has been scanning my emails! Loll!
Janet

LOL apologies, I just woke up. I said, "Google is", when I should have said
"Google has".

For all the naysayers, apparently privacy is in fact a big concern for
many users these days. Even Google is received enough criticism that
they're finally going to be changing their policy of scanning private
E-mail for the purpose of targeting you with personalized advertisement.

Hi Olusegun,
Thank you thank you for all this great information! I'm just so tired and
discouraged and disappointed with Microsoft, Windows, Outlook, JAWS. I
already paid FS for the MSA agreement for the next 2 versions of JAWS,
so after next year, I just won't pay the MSA. FS is just to
exspensive, and if I can get another screen reader that can do most of
the samethings as JAWS, so be it! I am seriously considering
learning and using NVDA as my screen reader. I thought about
downloading Windows 10 on to my Windows 7 64 bit pc, but after hearing
so much about how Microsoft has the ability to remove an application
from my own pc, and after hearing so much about how Windows
10 will actually force their updates right on to my own pc, and I
understand there are work arounds for these issues as well, but if
they can remove an application, and force updates, where is my privacy
and rights as a consumer? Oh yeah, I do get to pay for the pc though!
Smile! These are just some reasons I am considering leaving
Microsoft. I was considering purchasing a Android tablet, because
wow, now, I'm a little disappointed with Apple, and the reason I say
this is because Apple is very exspensive.
Besides, I know when I send a text message from my iPhone, what ever I
say in that text is going to go across Apple, and Apple says this is
because this is there way of trying to improve Siri. So, I say again,
where is my privacy and rights.
I'm still not for sure which tablet I'm going to purchase yet though.
I want to research all I can before purchasing any tablet, although, I
was considering an iPad as well, but then I'm still with Apple!
Just my personal opinion.

Janet

Janet, I am slowly KICKING Windows and its associated screen readers
down the drains and gutters; I am electing to switch to Android full-time.

As has been suggested, if you feel drawn to Android, the Galileo Pro
from Walmart is indeed a good buy. It runs on Marshmallow and you can
use an SD card to expand its storage space.

I believe Josh only referenced the Windows tablet from RCA just in
case you might be interested in taking a hard look at one.

Curiously, since you seem to be more familiar with the iOS platform,
how come you're not electing to purchase an iOS-based tablet? My
curiosity notwithstanding, having something close to the best of both
worlds might not be a bad idea! For me, I tend to STICK with what I
have tested and found to be as reliable as it gets. I didn't vegetate
towards iOS because I dislike overtly proprietary stuff and I love to
explore, it's my way of learning how to THINK outside the box!

Sincerely,
Olusegun
