an article that says windows is making too many personal computers obsolete

You may have noticed that PC sales have been declining for years. Know why? PCs last for years. I’m still running computers that are over a decade old.

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Better still, don’t spend your IT money replacing it.

this one talk of social care. giving money to those who need it and let them buy it. better than the present system where council provides it and you have to take it and lump it. 

and here is another microsoft article about it stomping on its competitors by disabling the rival antivirus and installing its own when it upgrades to windows 10. that is why google is being fined so much by the EU … maybe the usa and uk might like to take a leaf out of the EU and be stricter with microsoft and google and all the other big guns .

 i still do not know why people dont just buy a chrome book and leave all this nonsense dealing with microsoft like upgrading, viruses, hardware, etc behind. i never have to worry about it anymore ever since i got my chromebook. i am into my 4th year of using chromebook. hope it can last 10yrs at least. haha. i hope they are not putting in planned obsolescence where it self destructs after 2 -3 yrs. like smartphones which seem to last about 2-4 yrs at most. my previous chrome book went kaput after 2yrs use. this one, given to me free to replace the other one that went kaput, is coming up to its 2nd year…lets see if it lasts me till my next birthday… in june 2018. but at £230 when i bought the original one, each year costs me £76 so far. and decreasing with each year that passes. 

added. here is another interesting article about the designers of the seat covers in the london underground trains. they are rather unusual and distinctive and made in such a way with patterns that hide the dirt very well indeed. they call it moquette

some dramatic pictures in the report on the wild fire in the med due to this hot weather they are having now. we are having a dull cloudy rainy day here in london i like it, but those who dont may take a look at what is happening over there from their hot weather and be grateful for our weather here. we dont know how good this weather is until u have something like that to compare.
