User’s disliking for Windows 8 pushes HP to promote windows 7 again

User’s disliking for Windows 8 pushes HP to promote windows 7 againHP, which keeps releasing something new always, over this weekend, unveiled a brand new campaign. The company is now proudly shouting off the availability of systems that run Windows 7, especially for buyers who just wish to run away from Windows 8 asap.

Even after many comments, HP is not quitting Windows 8, but has found a way that is by presenting fresh Windows 7 PCs for sale. HP however did never stopped selling PCs based on Windows 7.

HP is doing what the TV advertisers of today do. Meanwhile, chief OEMs have never given up on the last-generation of Windows OS, until they were left with no other option. Consumers aimed machines might soon become hard to fetch and business configs are available for a long time after the launch of the new OS.

On the other hand, Microsoft usually does not stop selling the OEM licenses for its past operating systems for two years, after the new ones starts selling. So, you will be able to find computers with last batch of Windows 7 licenses until the end of 2014. And even after this, you will still be able to buy a Windows 8.1 Pro system that entails downgrade rights for Windows 7.

Another interesting fact is that what HP is claiming to do just now is something what Dell has already done. Similar thing happened with Dell, when users begged to bring the XP OS back, which Dell did soon after that. So, when do you think Dell stopped the sale of Windows XP? The answer is in 2010, it was only after a year of Windows 7 arrival.

If we believe in the statement that ‘history repeats itself’, then HP might flog computers with Windows 7, maybe till the year 2018. Or it might change, especially with the announcement of a new OS by Windows- ‘the Windows 9’, expected to get released later this year or early next year.

What will happen to your PC’s security after Microsoft withdraws XP in April?

XP-deadThe end of your beloved OS- “Windows XP” is nearing, with not even three months left. Microsoft thus advised to update to Windows 7 or Windows 8 to enjoy a more modern experience. Even after so many warnings, some people will continue using XP and after it ends, what will happen to their computer’s antivirus protection? It’s been reported that vendors of the 30 most popular antiviruses existing currently will continue support for their products on XP, even after Microsoft withdraws support on April 8th.

If possible, it’s always advised to opt for another upgraded operating system and get over XP. As it’s speculated that once Microsoft stops support, XP will become an easy target and may thus stop preventing malwares attacking the computer. The deal between the antivirus and operating system will terminate in April, making XP vulnerable and open to threats.

Microsoft recently gave surprising news by informing that the support for Microsoft Security Essentials by Microsoft will be continued till 14th July 2015, this is to help organizations complete the migration task efficiently. On the other hand, other security vendors like Avira, Bitdefender and TrendMicro have already given an ending date for supporting antivirus installation on Windows XP. For Avira the last date is April 8th 2015, for Bitdefender its January 2016 and for TrendMicro deadline is 30th January 2017. With this, you now have enough time to decide.

Meanwhile, some companies even said that till now they have no proposed plans for ending product support for XP, which they plan to continue for two more years at least. Some have given their deadline already and still others are ready to continue support for XP, if demand exists.

Enthusiasm for XP continues…

In spite of all the news and plans and deadlines, there are some companies that are not sticking to that “couple of years promise”. Kaspersky is one such name planning to continue support till 2018. Webroot, with no definite plans, will continue support till April 2019 or even beyond. Norton has still not decided and whether they will end support early or late is still an unanswered truth, which only Norton or time will reveal.

The article here has tried to throw light on companies and vendors and how long they are planning to support XP. Well, experts still recommend stopping the use of Internet Explorer on XP, with the support no longer available for this OS and switch to others like Firefox or Chrome. Also, moving away from Outlook Express on XP is being speculated.

So, what actually all this will reveal is something you will get to know only at the right time. Will you completely leave XP and put it away from your PC or will you continue, it’s a personal decision, but making you aware is our responsibility. So, use your head and choose an option that will continue supporting you and securing your PC.

Windows Phone 8.1 to include Siri-Like Tech for users

Windows-Phone-8.1Microsoft is all set to release its new Windows Phone 8.1 updated operating system. Its being speculated that two major additions or changes have been inculcated, which include a notification center and a personal voice assistant, inspired by Siri.

Speculated to get unveiled in April 2014, this mobile operating system by Microsoft will pack the most-awaited notification center. This feature can be easily enabled by swiping down the top screen, just like it’s done in Android and iOS. For quick settings, a short swipe is enough, while for a full notification history; a longer swipe across the screen would be needed.

Another most-talked about addition entails a replacement for the Bing search, which would be taken over by a personal voice assistant, dubbed “Cortana”. It’s a Siri-like digital assistant, which will help users interact using text or voice input. It’s expected that Cortana will work much like Google Now.

Like Siri on Apple and Google Now, Cortana can learn data and location context from the phone and will thus help in automatically reminding a user about an important meeting that is scheduled soon, based on memos entered by the user.

Cortana has been included in many versions of Halo, and when reviewed on Halo 4, this feature was named as “omniscient gal computer”.

More changes entail the end of a physical home button on the new Windows Phone, which will now be taken over by a touch-screen button. Windows Phone 8.1 is also touted to include separate volume controls, VPN support, Bing smart search results, and separate apps for Xbox Video and Xbox Music. Social apps like Facebook and Twitter to add to the ‘socializing” effect, will also be in this add-on list.

Android phone users will not find it difficult in migrating to the new Windows Phone devices due to the many design and functional similarities, both these share. Complete details of “what’s in” and “what’s out” will be revealed at the BUILD Conference by Microsoft in April.

The rumors however followed an announcement by Microsoft, which said that the Phone Store at Windows Phone will have more than 200,000 apps and will process more than 12 million transactions in a single day.
