Windows 7 support discontinued from 14 January 2020: What does it mean for me?

Posted by Shohrat Kamalov at

It's the end of an era: Microsoft will cease to support Windows 7 from 14 January 2020. Meaning that if you're still running the decade-old operating system you won't be getting any more updates, bug fixes and so forth. Here's what the plug-pull of the older operating system means. Will my Windows 7 PC stop working? No, not at all. You just won't receive any more security updates. Otherwise it's business as usual - as outdated as said business is.

Is this Google's Pixelbook 2? New FCC filing suggests yes

Posted by Shohrat Kamalov at

Have you been waiting for Google to update the Pixelbook? Well, it looks like a second-generation model is on the way.

The new 16-inch MacBook Pro might be a straight-up replacement for the 15-incher

Posted by Shohrat Kamalov at

Rumours continue to swirl about an addition to the MacBook Pro range. The 16-incher is set to debut in the coming months, most likely in October - but could it replace the current 15-inch?  The move to a larger screen is a little odd since Apple discontinued the 17-inch MacBook Pro in 2012 and the lack of large-screen PC laptops at the moment surely indicates a lack of demand.
