I'm curious what is the scheme of this type of scam? I'm like: OK, this is my IBAN account number, send me the money and I'll TOTALLY give you back 60% in cash .
Probably, I miss some detail as usual...
Let's hope his immediate future involves being traded for a pack of cigarettes.

I just failed one of those "I'm not a robot" captcha's
I checked the "I'm not a robot" box, clicked the next button and was presented with an error that I had to complete the captcha.
I'll be doing some self reflection later tonight (wait, can I do that if I'm a robot?)...

Why did they fix something that was not broken is beyond me
I suspect the old calculator did not meet Microsoft's guidelines for the appearance of productivity apps. It probably was "too colorful". You can see the end result if you compare the icons for the XP calculator and the Windows 10 calculator side-by-side. The Win 10 version looks so bleah! (Much like Microsoft's stock price performance).
I just hate it when something is socalled "free", but they reserve the right to (1) monitor all your activities on the PC, (2) fill you mailbox with loads of "good", non-free "special offers", or whatever it is called, to take some of your money.
I know from Google that logging out is not a way to stop monitoring my activities: If I do not want them to keep track of e.g. which search terms I google, I have to delete all cookies (I do not track which website leaves which cookies; their name/URL is not necessarily clearly identifiable as planted by Google), then log out (to kill demon processes that might hold my identity), and after login, again delete cookies (it seems like some demons save cookies as the last thing they do before they die).
Sure, I can delete cookies, log in to website, dowload book, delete cookies, log out of Windows, log in, and delete cookies again. Maybe I will do that.
Maybe I am paranoid (I do delete all cookies at least once a week). But even if I am, they still might be out to get me.
