PSA: Windows 10 Free Upgrade Will End July 29

PSA: Windows 10 Free Upgrade Will End July 29:

ideapad 700 15-inch in Black_Windows 10So we know that Microsoft has been rather aggressive when it comes to pushing out upgrade notifications for Windows 10. Some would say that it’s almost forceful in nature how they want users to upgrade. However if you’re holding off for whatever reason, perhaps now’s not the best time to do so.

Just as a reminder, the free upgrade offer will end on the 29th of July. This means that if you do want to upgrade to Windows 10 after the 29th of July, be prepared to pay money for it. How much, you ask? According to Microsoft, there are plans to charge $119 for a Windows 10 Home License, which is pretty much $110 saved if you upgrade before then.

We guess there are some who are hesitant to upgrade as Windows 10 does sport a new UI and new features that will need some getting used to. However the changes aren’t as drastic compared to Windows 8/8.1 and in some way, you could even call it a more snazzy version of Windows 7.

So far reviews of Windows 10 have been largely positive, at least compared to Windows 8/8.1, so if you’re hesitating on upgrading, maybe you should check out some reviews first before making the move, but remember, you’ve got 4 days left!

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
