Windows 9 codenamed 'Threshold' preview on September 2014

Windows 9 codenamed 'Threshold' preview on September 2014

As per rumor, Microsoft is poised to showcase it's upcoming OS Windows 9 codenamed 'Threshold' pretty soon arguably this coming September. I'm still in love with my Windows 7 and had no intention to upgrade to notoriously hated Windows 8. But with Windows 9, things could change. As eyebrows have been raised and hearts racing among techies to try this new baby, I can only hope better.




Microsoft is stopping Windows 7 sale coming this October 2014 which means there will be no PC loaded with Windows 7 albeit they'll have continuing security updates till 2020, phewww. And, they've Windows 9 preview coming before that. Windows 8's shortlived fame somewhere is to blame for this release if you ask me. It was a major paradigm shift when they released Windows 8. I was equally excited being a loyal Microsoft user and a fan, but before I jumped onto it,  I tried my hand on it at local Best Buy store, I was forced to like it but ended up not liking it after a while. No matter how hard I tried to embrace it, it was difficult and I knew it was going to be a big flop.

Again, as per rumor, they're bringing back START button. They're bringing back what was missed on so called revolutionary Windows 8. They had an update after Windows 8 official release though and if you wanna try your hand on it, you can grab Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version at 10 large sandwich price.


Tech Support Scammers

Tech Support Scammers

Be careful of what you download on internet. Scammers have been trying every bit of technology available to them to dupe YOU. These recent cycle of news is about scammers offering you tech support via phone leading you to believe in downloading some of their softwares only to get access to your computer and steal information. And these scammers are operating from their bases in India. If you ever happen to get call from these notorious goons, just waste their time and make fool of themselves at the end. Few weeks ago, that's what I did when one of these bastards called me trying to rip me off. This sucka that I encountered was posing as a member of Microsoft Tech Support Team.


Popular Anti-malware Malwarebytes has written a detailed blog showing how these scammers work. As I was going through some of the works of these scammers, I was so amazed and couldn't believe that how authentic and real their fake products look like. I mean they pose as being big security companies offering downloads of their freewares. Had I not looked at their URL, I would have been easily fallen prey to them.

Anyway, check this detail story here and share it if possible. People need to know it and unmask these good for nothing cyber criminals and their activities.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Samsung Galaxy Alpha


Samsung Galaxy Alpha looks just normal sized smartphone with 4.7 inch frame. What set it aside from the crowd is it's octa-core processor and 13 megapixel camera. Come on, Samsung, my PC is not as powerful as your Galaxy Alpha and here you've this monster in disguise. I can turn my Galaxy Note II to full blown PC with just little adapter and extra effort tweaks. Now with these specs, am imagining PC in future being slowly superseded by these palm sized mini-PC powerhouse. 


Skepticisms apart, it's really worrisome for us PC enthusiasts to see demise of PC as some news have reported--declining PC quarter sales, and soaring smartphone markets. Well, we'll see but with average-sized screen, I've no idea where you are heading when there are tough players already in the game. HTC,iPhone are coming back with vengeance this coming month. And, am sure you'll be put to rest as I don't see much glowing features on Alpha other than that CPU and camera. Rumors also have that price would be like over $700 and after carriers branding, it'll be even more expensive to own it and with ridiculously lightyear fast depreciating resale value, personally I would pass on this one.
