Microsoft, you’re not as smart as you thing you are!

I was installing an update of OneNote and I suddenly received this popup:



Continuing could be expensive”

You’re connected to a network that limits downloads every month.

We need to stream some large files over your network connection to install Ofifice, so we recommend installing while connected to an unrestricted netowork.

Seriourly, Microsoft?

How the hack do you know what kind of contract I have?

Or, are you working with NSA and spying on my contract? Or with BND (Bundes Nachrichten Dienst – for Germany) ?

For the record, I don’t have a volume base internet access contract.

I have no idea how they could figure out this.
My take on this is that the text is wrong.

They wanted to say that “If you are connected to a network that limits downloads every month” things can become expensive.
