A non-generic computer would be function specific, as I understand it. This ruling is similar to current patent law in Europe that does not allow generic software patents, but does allow for patenting software as part of a larger specialized solution.
So for example, if you patented software as part of a device (e.g., an autonomous vehicle), it probably would stand - as long as it's not just any car, but a specific solution that includes specialized hardware necessary for the software to function and which would be useless without the software.
With recent court decisions declaring that privacy is not violated until people know about it, telling the public how and what information is being collected and stored would in itself constitute an invasion of privacy.
