Microsoft owns you 12 hours a day

Here is more evidence that the robots are seizing control:
Note that Windows 10 doesn’t let you configure an Active hours timeframe that’s longer than 12 hours. If you do try that, you’ll get a message telling you that “Active hours can be set between 1 and 12 hours”.
I don't want to pick on Microsoft, as Apple, Facebook, Google, Comcast, and Verizon are worse.

The remarkable thing to me is that no one complains about this stuff anymore. Ppl have gotten used to taking orders from machines. It is just normal to beg permission to use your own desktop computer for 12 hours max, and then be put back at the mercy of autonomous bots that seek to alter your behavior.

I'm annoyed and complaining too. It is stupid, Why does MS really need a 12-23 hour window to apply their shitty updates, and just maybe, I need a 13 hour window to do some work, but they aren't letting me?
