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.

Windows 10 – Only free for today so upgrade now!

The title says it all really. Today is your last chance to pick yourself up a copy of Windows 10 for free. From tomorrow the software giant will charge €135 for the home edition and €279 for the pro edition. The question that most users have is can I and perhaps more importantly, should I upgrade and let me get into some reasons as to why I advise you to take the plunge.

Windows 8 was a disaster and 8.1 wasn’t much better and pretty much just tried to bring back the familiarity of the much loved Windows 7. For this reason, most people did not want to upgrade their PC’s & laptops as Windows 7 was stable, relatively quick and probably more importantly, familiar.  The key point that Microsoft seems to forget every now and again is that end users want their machines to be faster, more reliable and safer but this must not come at the cost of having to relearn how to use the machine all over again. This is exactly what happened with Windows 8 and from my experience, this is the reason why most people fear the change to Windows 10.

Let me attempt to put your mind at ease but also let you know that most of you will encounter and issue of some form or another.

Looking for a smart phone? Check out the OnePlus 3

On the off chance that you are not familiar with OnePlus (where have you been??), they are a Chinese manufacturer of high-end smart phones at mid-range prices. I can vouch for OnePlus as phone manufacturers since I have owned the OnePlus X as well as the OnePlus 2 and I’m planning on picking up a OnePlus 3 shortly. They are fantastic phones, period. I’ve been through my share of smart phones and since my iPhone 1, I’ve been well and truly hooked on these smart devices.

There are certain things that really “grind my gears”

  • I don’t want to be locked into a 2-year contract in order to get a phone. I want to buy a phone and beat up the providers when my 12-month contract comes up for renewal
  • I hate that providers lock their phone to their network! If I take my phone to the USA or anywhere outside of Europe, ill buy a local sim card with my unlocked phone
  • The price of these devices is really not justified. I understand that marketing. R&D etc. is expensive but come on! More of the pricing of these products (in my opinion) is to make the user feel elitist by having an expensive phone. That is until you drop it in the toilet because you were playing candy crush.

Has my account been hacked? Check here…..

Have you been hacked?

It’s something that comes up with my line of business more often than I would like. Has my account been hacked?

Before continuing the article, check your email account(s) in the following website to see if your account(s) were accessed and published: Have I Been Pwned?

Often, when hackers go after large sites they publish the information on (usually sketchy) websites. This information can be sold to potential cyber criminals for relatively small amounts of money when you take into account the money that could be made from accessing your email accounts. Once they get in they can search for your online accounts and start resetting passwords. Usually by the time you notice, the damage is done.

My advice?
