I wonder

Am i right in thinking if you have a dodgy version of win 7 ultimate this will free upgrade to win 10 pro....

Only wonder as my new lappy has win 10 home and could in theory wipe clean install win 7 ultimate and up to 10 pro??

But as it is microshaft will get shafted some where along the way...

Power Bar: EE was warned of safety risk BEFORE user was burned in explosion

eJ2095

Common sense

They get warm when discharging also..

Thought think they are rated at 2600,

Most phones have at least a higher rated battery that drains this hence it gets very warm..

And on that bombshell: Top Gear's Clarkson to reappear on Amazon

eJ2095

BBC own part of Dave so would hae never happened..

Also if i remember the 3 guys have a clause in there contract saying they can not work for another uk broadcaster for 12 months after there contract had finished....

Hence i am guessing the move to amazon
