    Perhaps the NSA has made some sort of arrangement with Microsoft? They appeared to be holding out on giving the NSA access to people's stuff; but maybe there was continual pressure from the NSA, and...

    I prefer wired internet over wireless for two reasons: in my neighborhood, there's no cap on wired internet; and, I feel that wired is more secure than wireless.

    I had the problem that the OP describes. In fact, it was so bad that I was about to give up on FB, etc.
