You Cannot Upgrade To Windows 10 For Free In 2018

Back in 2015, when Microsoft released Windows 10 to the public, Windows 10 was offered as a free upgrade to users running genuine copies of Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1. Millions of PC users around the globe availed this offer to upgrade their PCs to Windows 10 for free.
The free upgrade offer officially ended in July 2016. Unofficially, the offer is still going on even today. Microsoft actually never stopped activating Windows 10 on PCs upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 to Windows 10.
Even today, users can upgrade to Windows 10 for free of cost. This is because Microsoft has been officially allowing PCs with assistive technologies to upgrade to Windows 10 for free but there is no system as such in place to check if a PC is using assistive technology before activating the Windows 10 on that PC for free. Users have been using this loophole to upgrade to Windows 10 for free even today.
Can I upgrade to Windows 10 for free in 2018?
It looks like this offer will be withdrawn on January 1st, 2018. Microsoft, on its Windows 10 upgrade page has declared that PCs with assistive technologies will not be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 from January 1st, 2018. This means that users can avail the free upgrade offer until 31st December 2017.
Windows 10 is not free from Jan 1st, 2018
That said, PC users might be able to upgrade to Windows 10 even after December 31st, 2017 if Microsoft decides to extend this deadline or if Microsoft ignores its deadline as it did before.
If you have a computer running Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, we recommend you upgrade to Windows 10 right-away to avail the free upgrade offer.
As you likely know, Microsoft has released four major updates (feature updates) to Windows 10 so far to add hundreds of new features and address all issues. So you have no reason to keep on using the old Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 unless you have a program that cannot run on Windows 10.
Again, almost all Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 programs are compatible with Windows 10 and PC that are running Windows 7, or Windows 8/8.1 can run Windows 10 without issues. You can even downgrade to Windows 7/8.1 if you encounter issues after upgrading to Windows 10.
If you are still on Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, do let us know why you are still sticking to Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1.

AIM is officially dead

Say “goodbye” (in the AOL voice, if possible) to Aol Instant Messenger.
Back in October, Oath (the combined entity of Yahoo and Aol) announced that it would shutter AIM on December 15. Yes, today is the day.
While there is no shortage of means to communicate online, AIM holds a special place in many of our hearts.
For some of us, it was the first place we talked to our crush. It was our internet playground, where we grew accustomed to online acronyms and first learned about the very healthy habit of internet stalking.
AIM is the first place we ever wrote a web bio, likely in Comic Sans, with outrageous text and background colors.
AIM never stood a chance at keeping up with the pace of innovation on the web, which is why its sun has set, but that doesn’t change what it meant to us.
So today, pour one out for teenage you typing furiously on the computer in your parents’ office. LOL. AFK. BRB. ROFL.

Apple Maps gets indoor mapping for more than 30 airports

As of this morning, Apple Maps has expanded to include indoor layouts of 30 airports across the globe. The company has primarily hit American cities thus far, covering what looks to be most of the big cities across the contiguous U.S. There are some key international airports, as well, including Hong Kong International, Amsterdam, Geneva, two in London and Berlin and a handful of Canadian locations.
It’s a big rollout, all in one fell swoop, that appears to have taken quite some time in the making. Each location requires close cooperation with airlines and the airports themselves, along with in-person surveyors. People have been recording the data in-person — sort of a human stand-in for those street mapping cars that Apple and Google deploy to get a lay of the land.
If an airport is included in the list, it will now sport the words “Look Inside” on the map. Tapping that will pop up a bird’s-eye view layout of the inside of the terminal. It’s that standard mapping grid view — in spite of sending human surveyors to collect data, there’s nothing here akin to Satellite or Street View. Not that most airport terminals are really all that much to look at in the first place.
The grid view highlights each gate in yellow, with a few key destinations populating the map — things like check-ins, baggage and airport lounges. Drilling down from there reveals other spots in more detail, including restaurants, restrooms and the like. Tap on a restaurant, for instance, and you’ll get a tab with data just like you would outside the airport. It offers the terminal name and floor number, phone number, hours and reviews pulled from a third-party review platform like Yelp.
Tapping on the number in the upper-right corner toggles between terminal levels. Swiping up with two fingers, meanwhile, offers up a 3D view of the space, with added depth. This lay of the land was gathered using CAD files provided to Apple by the individual airports, to give the user a better sense of place while wandering around the terminal.
We had the opportunity to test the new feature at JFK’s Terminal 5 earlier today, which was like going through all of the travel rigmarole without actually getting to go anywhere. I will say, however, that I was pleasantly surprised at how good a job the system does triangulate a phone indoors. The location accuracy is within a couple of meters, which is impressive inside, where GPS data is a crapshoot, at best.
Apple accomplishes this by using Wi-Fi points throughout the terminal. That triangulation is equally accurate whether or not you’re on the Wi-Fi — which I suspect many travelers aren’t, given the number of airports that still charge for access.
It should prove a handy feature for those planning out an hour or two in the airport — time I tend to spend wandering down terminal halls in search of slightly less terrible food options. There’s still a lot of room for potential growth here, too. After all, Apple has started incorporating flight data into other pieces of iOS so this would be a no-brainer.
Being able to see which gate a flight is leaving from directly inside the map app could be supremely useful. Ditto for figuring out which carousel your luggage is on. No word on when that information is coming — that after all, is a pretty unwieldy additional stream of data layer to add in.
Meantime, you can find the full list of participating airports on Apple’s site
