There will be many people very excited about the prospect of upgrading to Windows 10 on the 29th of July.
At the same time there are other users on Windows 7 and 8.1 who do not want any part of the upgrade for a variety of reasons.
Microsoft has confirmed that the new OS, currently in its final stages of development, will be made available for download/install on eligible systems on 29 July 2015.
In preparation for that, back in April, Microsoft released an update (KB3035583) for Windows 7 (Optional) and 8.1 (Recommended) that is called the Get Windows 10 app. It provides the prompt that started appearing on users systems (Windows 7 and 8.1) yesterday and gives you the option to reserve your copy of Windows 10.
But what if you are one of those users with zero interest in the Windows 10 upgrade?
Since KB3035583 was released as an Optional or Recommended update based on your OS it might not be installed if you avoid those types of updates. If that is the case then you have no further action to take.
If however, you did install that update then it can be uninstalled through Windows Update.… Read the rest
The fact that the U.S. economy had another slow start to year is nothing new, however, the focus is now turning to second quarter growth and Paul Ashworth, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics, is questioning whether there will be a meaningful rebound in growth, similar to what was seen in 2014.
He notes that, so far, data shows that isn’t happening as both retail sales and manufacturing, in particular, have been disappointing so far but he adds that it is still too soon to tell. “More generally, there is still very little hard data available on second-quarter activity. At this early stage, we would be wary of low estimates from GDP trackers that are extrapolating the weakness in the first quarter,” he says. “We are less inclined to believe that the U.S. recovery has been derailed since there is no obvious cause. At this still relatively early stage of the current economic expansion, it would require a pretty big adverse shock to derail it.”Read the rest
This was in response to a comment made a few days ago regarding the PPACA. They stated healthcare costs rose at the lowest pace under obamacare than in 30 years… To which I responded “BS”
The last policy for our employees was not renewed because it wasn’t “approved” under the new socialized medical program we have in the US (aka obamacare). As a result, we had to find another policy to cover our crew equal to what they had in the past.
It ended up costing us 35% more for less coverage…
It went up THIRTY FIVE PERCENT overnight… Fact!
There is nothing free. It might not cost you but it will cost someone.
Ask all those who were penalized for not having healthcare this year… Ask them next year when it really starts getting expensive.
It will cost a family up to 975.00 for tax year 2015 or 2% of your gross adjusted income – whichever is greater.
