    True, but when they did, they owned it and fixed it.

    What are you on about? They just continue on and on, paying off whatever fines they get and donating more to politicians than anyone else.

    Im not sure what you are trying to say, atleast other search engines can bring you to youtube? You can search for the epic store on any search engine I know about.

    They're allowed to not like a certain company. Epic doesn't owe them or you jack shit. How much is Epic paying you to suck them off?

    The google home when it had a manufacturing defect that caused the touch sensor to keep recording. Google notified people and updated the home mini to disable the touch function on those models. They could of ignored it or said it was not happening, yet they owned it and fixed it.

    Typed good instead of google, my bad. Yes, you can find epic on any search engine. I am saying google does not lock you to it for youtube and things like that like epic is for games that they are buying exclusivity deals from.

    Well obviously, no shit. So what if I am? Epic games' CEO is a dickweed, there's no defending him.

    Yes, and Epic games is totally innocent on that front too. Whoever programmed malware/spyware in Epic's game launcher can fuck off.

    If you looked at what I said, I said RECORDING, not listening. Yes, it is always listening for the wake word and when it hears that then it starts recording. Also, you can choose what data is shared with google.

    No not really, I didnt just decide I didnt like them for silly reasons and then later try to justify it.

    Its cute that you think so, Google doesnt really even let anyone opt out. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019...ion-and-shares-it-police-even-when-your-phone

    Dude, 5 seconds on google and you can find out how to opt out and delete all data. Its not that hard to search for facts before you say something.

    And on your original comment about epic vs google it was on a post WITH FACTS of why we don't like then and you decided they were just silly reasons. I hate to tell you, but they are not silly reasons for why I hate epic. Its cause of the stupid bs they keep pulling time after time even tho they said they wouldn't

    To me it looks like they asked a developer to make it possible to get steam friends, and instead of using the api they just located the localconfig.vdf directly. I can see this being mistake and so far it doesnt seem to be a pattern, google on the other hand...

    It's a dick thing to do, maybe Epic should just mind their own fucking business on who uses Steam.

    *Sigh* the option might be there, but you cant really opt out. Google tracks you no matter what you think they are doing. I dont want to go too far down the rabbit hole of google though on this epic store thread, point is you people are strongly hating on epic for things other companies you seem to love do constantly.

    I'm guessing this is an "award" that they paid to receive. Not so much good PR out there for EGS these days.
