Can Microsoft come back to the cell phone market? - 10/25/19

The Lumia 650 was Microsoft's last smart phone produced in 2016. If you haven't noticed, Microsoft hasn't made smart phones in a while. There are rumors that Microsoft is using Surface to produce cell phones in 2020. Microsoft is building an android phone, probably to get back in the market and have more people use Windows with Android. Windows 10 Mobile and Lumia was doomed from the start because of lack of apps and basically no features on their phones. Maybe this time around Microsoft will do better with the pairing of Android to get people to use Windows.

Windows 7 End of Support - 10/20/19

Windows 7 will no longer have security updates as of January 14, 2020. There will also be no more tech support and no more software updates. Users are recommended to upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 7 will still function, but like Windows XP and older os'es, there will be more risks by using the system with no security support

Which search engine do you use? - 10/8/19

Google seems to be the go to for search engines. Which one is the best for you? I have tried other search engines such as Bing, Yahoo!, and MSN. However none of them match up to Google. Google has always been the fastest and most reliant search since it opened in 1998. I don't use Yahoo! and Bing much anymore because I do not get the results accurately as Google. It is also the most responsive on any device I run it on. Sometimes search engines actually freeze or take too long on older devices. Google works on everything.
