Google Chrome will quit working appropriately on a huge number of Windows computers next week

Published

on

Employees and business owners who are still using Chrome on an older version of Windows will need to upgrade right away.

This is because the browser that runs on Windows 7 will no longer receive technical or security support from Google beginning next week.

Google originally intended to end support on July 15, 2021; however, because of Covid-19, the deadline was pushed back to January 10, 2023 and then to January 15, 2022.

‘Chrome 109 is the last version of Chrome that will support Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1. Chrome 110 (tentatively scheduled for release on February 7th, 2023) is the first version of Chrome that requires Windows 10 or later,’ explains Google’s Chrome Support Manager.

‘You’ll need to ensure your device is running Windows 10 or later to continue receiving future Chrome releases.’

Despite its age, millions of PCs worldwide still run Windows 7. In December 2021, statistics from NetMarketShare.com indicated that 14% of worldwide Windows devices were still running Windows 7.

Google added: ‘Older versions of Chrome will continue to work, but there will be no further updates released for users on these operating systems. If you are currently on Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1, we encourage you to move to a supported Windows version to ensure you continue to receive the latest security updates and Chrome features.’

It’s possible that a lot of small businesses didn’t make the switch to Windows 10, and larger businesses might not be willing to pay for an upgrade.

The company said at the time: ‘If your PC is running Windows 7, it will no longer receive security updates. Therefore, it’s important that you upgrade to a modern operating system such as Windows 10, which can provide the latest security updates to help keep you and your data safer,’ the company said on its support website.

‘If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses.

‘Your PC will continue to start and run, but you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates, from Microsoft.’

Chrome now appears to be headed in the same direction.

Max Christoff, the engineering director at Google Chrome, provided the following explanation in November 2020: For many businesses, upgrading to Windows 10 was a part of their year-long plan. However, as IT teams’ new priorities emerged, we were informed that 21% of businesses are still migrating to Windows 10.

‘While the past few months served as a catalyst for technology investments and digital transformation initiatives for many organizations, for others, some planned IT projects may have had to take a back seat.’

Pre-order details for the Galaxy S23 series are available on Samsung.com

Published

on

According to current predictions, Samsung will increase the cost of the Galaxy S23 series in Europe (in comparison to the S22 models from the previous year). The business is also getting ready to offer the customary discounts to lessen the blow. Even though the page still displays the current S22 phones, it turns out that someone altered the small print on the Samsung UK Business portal with information on the S23 pre-order.

Remember that this is a business portal, thus the 10% discount mentioned in #4 probably doesn’t apply to you. For people, there might be comparable discounts, though.

It is evident from the dates that Samsung will launch a pre-order promotion through February 16. That is to be expected because the business typically launches its sales on the first Friday that follows the announcement.

The price of the iPhone 14 is at its lowest point ever during the sale. The newest iPhone 14 series’ entry-level smartphone is the iPhone 14. The iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max are additional models in the series. The A15 Bionic SoC, which powers the stock iPhone 14, has 128GB of internal storage by default and is quick enough to load all the apps you need to utilise.

The base 128GB edition of the iPhone 14 is currently on sale for Rs 66,999 on Flipkart. This variant’s initial cost is Rs 79,900. Customers can also receive exchange offers from Flipkart worth up to Rs 20,000 in addition to this. The 256GB and 512GB variants were launched for Rs 89,900 and Rs 1,09,900, respectively.

The iPhone 14 is a top-notch mobile device. The 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display of the handset is powered by the A15 Bionic technology, which we first saw in the iPhone 13 series. It is a 5G smartphone that works with both Jio and Airtel’s 5G in India. There are two 12MP cameras on the back, and a 12MP selfie camera is on the front. With this gadget, you can capture videos in 4K at 60 frames per second and with a 5x digital zoom. Since the smartphone has IP68 certification, you don’t need to be concerned about water spilling on it.

Be aware that you will also need to purchase a charging adapter if you are purchasing an iPhone for the first time. The charger is available via Flipkart for Rs 1599, but it is also available through Apple resellers for close to Rs 2000.
