NSA and China have been conducting espionage war against each other for a long time. From 1999 this espionage war became digital, moving out into the open, and affecting the public around the World.
Microsoft is now the frontman of NSA in this digital espionage war, and does what the NSA wants. In 1999, Microsoft had inserted a cryptographic key, named _NSAKEY into the Windows operating system, to give NSA access to windows applications. Later Microsoft established UEFI hardware and secure boot firmware, to give NSA Full control of the whole system. The UEFI Secure Boot configuration, such as Windows 8 and Windows RT, gives Microsoft and NSA the ultimate power over your machine, including "Bricking".
