Microsoft is here to remind you that Windows 7 support is ending soon

Microsoft wanted to remind its users that Windows 7 support will be ending in less than a year. A newly deployed update will let users know that security updates will end after January 14, 2020. There’s even a not-so-subtle reminder that the OS has been around for 10 years and now is the time to consider what’s next. This update should start appearing on those Windows 7 machines starting April 18th. It’ll be hard to miss the alert the first time it appears, but you will get an option to disable future reminders.

According to Engadget, a lot of people will be seeing this notice with Net Applications data suggesting Windows 7 is represented nearly 40.2 percent of desktop usage as of February. But we don’t know if these users will heed the warning. A lot of these are PC users that would struggle with the change, and others are using corporate machines where updating isn’t in their control. But Microsoft is hoping the alert will reach the holdouts. Once official support ends, only those who paid for extended support will get security updates (that is until 2023). Outside of a big issue, like the WannaCry ransomware outbreak, Microsoft won’t release anymore updates.

‘Stranger Things 3’ trailer brings the gang back together

The Stranger Things crew are back together and we get plenty of onscreen action. It starts off with a homecoming party to Dustin and a look at all things ‘80s. Somehow the almost three-minute clip ends up with the Upside Down bringing in its menace and monstrosity into the mix. Perhaps a nod to when the show is going to air (July 4th), there is even a big Fourth of July party thrown in there.

Robots are coming to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics

It doesn’t come as a surprise that there are going to be robots present at the 2020 summer Olympics happening in Japan. The Tokyo Olympics’ Organizing Committee recently launched a Tokyo 2020 Robot Project, which will have these automatons assisting both the spectators and the crew behind the scenes. There will be robots like the one from Toyota (pictured above) that can help wheelchair-bound guests to their seats, deliver their food, and even provide information. Panasonic, on the other hand, will be providing Power Assist Suit exoskeletons for the works to help the carry everything from food, trash, to heavy cargo with ease.

According to the organizers, there will be more robots coming and these will be announced at a later date. Japan is eager to show off its capabilities in the segment, with the aim to demonstrate the “practical, real-life deployment” of the technology.
