MSN Messenger to end after 15 years
Aug 31, 2014 - 10:09 PM - by ekim68
Microsoft's Windows Live Messenger will be switched off in China in October, marking a final end to the 15-year-old service.

Originally known as MSN Messenger, it was launched in 1999 but was switched off for most users in 2013, after Microsoft bought rival Skype.

Users in China continued to use the old service but will now be transferred to Skype by 31 October.

Windows Live still had as many as 330 million users as recently as 2009.

HP Notebook PC AC Power Cord Safety Recall and Replacement Program
Aug 26, 2014 - 4:44 PM - by dvk01

On August 26, 2014 HP announced a worldwide HP Notebook PC AC Power Cord Safety Recall and Replacement Program voluntary recall and replacement program in cooperation with various government regulatory agencies, for affected AC power cords distributed worldwide with HP and Compaq notebook and mini notebook computers, as well as with AC adapters provided with accessories such as docking stations, sold from September 2010 through June 2012.

HP customers affected by this program will be eligible to receive a replacement AC power cord for each verified, recalled AC power cord at no cost.

HP believes that certain power cords shipped with notebook PC products and AC adapter accessories may pose a risk of a fire and burn hazard to customers. We are taking this action as part of our commitment to provide the highest quality of service to our notebook customers.

Note: Not all HP and Compaq notebook and mini notebook PCs were sold with an affected power cord. Please validate the power cord shipped with your notebook PC or purchased with an accessory, or as a spare.

What to do:

1. Immediately stop using your AC power cord.

2. Visit the HP Notebook PC AC Power Cord Recall website to verify if your AC power cord is part of this program and order a replacement cord if your power cord is verified as affected.

Windows 9 unveiling slated for September 30: What to expect
Aug 21, 2014 - 8:28 PM - by TechSocial
Mark your calendars, geeks (tentatively anyway). Microsoft is reportedly planning an event for September 30, and thereís one thing on the menu: showing off Windows 9 and unleashing the preview bits on a public thatís eager to move on from Windows 8.

According to sources who spoke to The Vergeís Tom Warren, itís possible that the date could change. Up until the announcements go out to the press, thereís no real guarantee that the 30th is a lock. Still, late September has been pegged before for the unveiling, so it seems probable that weíre less than five weeks away from getting our first in-depth look at Windows 9.
