Win 10 has done this on a regular basis to me, no matter the update level/version. I've seen it on multiple computers as well.

If you can read this, your Windows 10 2004 PC really is connected to the internet no matter what the OS claims
I ignored the snail mail, but succumbed to the browser injection. New modem was a combo modem/firewall/wifi/voip "gateway." It was immediately set to bridge mode, activated with a laptop directly attached, then connected to my existing firewall.
My firewall is now a bottleneck, but since this "upgrade" didn't include an associated bump to my monthly data allowance, I'm fine missing out on a few mbps.
I suspect their main drive for pushing these things is that when not set to bridge mode, they broadcast an XFINITY wifi ssid.
I was slightly annoyed by this as well. But whatever it's still a nice intro movie, and one that I can show friends without having to start a new game.
I was much more pleased that I didn't lose an hour of my life to a 2 gig update download and install, then another 100 meg download and install, then 30 minutes to actually install the game to the hdd.
Thank you Square Enix for designing a game that can actually run from the disc!
I was not a Netflix customer until after the price change.
I get my DVDs by mail from Blockbuster and am not interested in leaving. Hopefully they will stay around. I am not interested in their streaming service. When Netflix changed the pricing, I took advantage of their one month free offer on the ps3. It's not perfect, I find it useful enough to continue.
Airport Metal Detectors
I can't count the number of times ive flown through Texas's airports. I currently have 8ga titanium rings and 14ga steel barbells in. I have never had a walkthrough or a wand metal detector be set off by them.
On my most recent trip through Texas, I had just had fresh piercings made the night before and got to explain to the TSA luggage inspector why I needed my 4oz bottle of saline spray for medical reasons. Once I said the word 'piercing' he let me through...
To say the least, there is NO WAY I would remove a body piercing for a security guard. I don't care how high and mighty they might feel they are.
