You can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free!

Free windows

Are you annoyed that you missed the deadline for your free windows 10 upgrade? Well, fear not because you can still upgrade, legally for free. Microsoft has said that it will continue to offer the free upgrade to anyone that uses assistive technology and all you have to do is follow the link at the end of the page.

So yes, it may be morally wrong to say you use assistive technology to get a free upgrade but I personally find it easier than shelling out for a new copy.

Make it rain

From Microsofts web page:

For the general public, the free upgrade offer for Windows 10 ends on July 29. However, if you use assistive technologies, you can still get the free upgrade offer even after the general public deadline expires as Microsoft continues our efforts to improve the Windows 10 experience for people who use these technologies.

With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, we’ve taken a number of steps to improve the accessibility of Windows 10. To learn more, read our blog that details some of these improvements.

Before you upgrade, please check with your assistive technology provider(s) to learn more about their software compatibility with Windows 10.

If you want Windows 10 now and are ready to take advantage of the free upgrade offer, select the button below to get started.

Yes, I use assistive technologies and I am ready for my free upgrade to Windows 10. *

Happy with all of that? Then head over HERE and get your copy for free!

If I’ve saved you a few quid, then give the article a share or a like for us.

Thanks for dropping by 🙂

Torrents – The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Torrents first cropped up around the late 90’s. The first memory I have of downloading a torrent was when by brother downloaded “Pitch Black”. The process took 3 days and we got a letter from our ISP telling us they were disconnecting us because we had downloaded so much. This was a dial-up connection by the way ! *shudders.

You use torrents all the time and never had a bad experience, right? Well, the fact is that unless you are downloading a file legally, which most people who use torrents are not, then you are likely wide open to a number of worrying scenarios. You are certainly not alone though! There has been 27 million recorded users on BitTorrent at a single time and it’s estimated that it alone is responsible for 25% of all internet traffic.

Overwatch – Who Is Sombra?

Who is Sombra?

You may recall, I wrote a piece on Overwatch previously. You can find it HERE Blizzard is a fantastic company when it comes to keeping their customers involved. They released another character (Ana) recently and the rumour mill is rife with the addition of “Sombra”. Sombra was first discovered hinted at in very early pre-beta releases. There was a table with three classified manila folders on it reading “SOMBRA [CLASIFICADO],” “SOLDADO: 76 [CLASIFICADO],” and “JACK MORRISON [CLASIFICADO]. Jack Morrision(Soldier 76) was shown before and after he transformed into soldier 76.

Hololens – What is it and do i need it?

Hololens is the Microsoft offering to augmented reality (Microsoft like to call it mixed reality) and just in case you are not up on the term, augmented reality is a mix between the real world and virtual reality. I believe that the Hololens is the direction that virtual / augmented / mixed reality will start going and the main reason for this is the way that the Hololens scans the environment so that you remain spatially aware. A big problem that has come to light with virtual reality is the loss of spatial awareness as the user becomes completely immersed in the virtual world and fall over, become dizzy etc. as they try to adjust.

Uses:

Gamers love the idea of Hololens but truly, I see this as mainly being an educational tool. The Hololens is a self-contained full blown PC with the ability to act as a workstation anywhere you go. As an educational tool, students, doctors, engineers, architects etc will be able to work with life like 3d renders of their projects just wearing a headset. Architects could see their buildings come to life and strip them back in real time to identify any potential issues etc. The user of Hololens could be transported to another world by completely augmenting the surroundings while still having spatial awareness of their surroundings. The possibilities for this are limitless as this device develops over the next few years.

In case you haven’t heard, Overwatch is awesome!

It’s hard for me to admit but I was late out of the gate with this one. Overwatch: Blizzard’s latest offering is out on major consoles as well as on PC and let it be said, these guys don’t mess around when it comes to building games that are played for the long term. Too many game manufacturers rely on pushing out a title very year and to me, that feels like a real cop out. It means that the studio doesn’t see you playing this game for 12 months and in reality, if you get a few months out of any online title (Call Of Duty in particular) I would say you are doing well.

Who are Blizzard?
