Given that XP is also still getting patch tues updates( if you tell wupdates its a 'kiosk') i doubt very much that updates will be ending for W7 any time soon..... This is just more from the M$ data slurping (W10) marketing team
Barclays (and prob many more) use W7 in their Human Cashier replacements....
How do i know this? I crashed one once & it rebooted - wasn't even W7 embedded!
"Making marketing calls to people who are registered with the TPS is completely unacceptable, and we will take robust enforcement action against firms that are contacting people without their consent," said ICO enforcement manager Andy Curry.
Unless they call internationally and or spoof the number, or hang up, or refuse to identify themselves etc etc..... which most of em do.
People still use Skype? and i mean voluntarily not foisted on them by 'management'
Skype is a perfect example of an excellent idea, bought out by corporate greed & then totally fsked up. I dropped out around V4ish whenever it was they totally fricked with the UI. never looked back as there are many non-M$ VoIP solutions available. some even work too!
800 Quid for a phone with a swanky new camera. Madness
Lets see, for around 50 quid you can have a Nokia 'dumb' phone with a battery that lasts best part of a MONTH between charges and if you really do want to take pictures of everything not far north of a hundred quid will get you a very reasonably point & click camera featuring many many pixels & half-decent optics.
The only reason to integrate a phone & a camera is so you can instantly send stupid pictures to you mates on twit/book/chat/verse or whatever.
You want it all? You want it all crammed into a 5mm thick form factor, you wanna pay 800 notes for it & don't care that if you drop it its fucked. Go ahead moron!
