I just read a short article about the software(spyware), but it didn't get very specific on what info it collects and reports back to HP!
Does anyone know anything about "HP Touchpoint Analytics Service"?

it reports everything. It knows your bank information, your address, the porn you like best and even your cats name!

Just uninstall it. Google, Apple and Microsoft do way worse than collect performance data ;)

Privacy is something people want but will not give up anything to retain it. You want privacy, stay off the internet...simple. Websites collect so many stats its not funny. I am just not that concerned with privacy. I wish they would post all medical information to a site so doctors could treat people quicker and more reliably! I am one of the few it seems :(
