What PSI does is, it detects outdated or vulnerable software on your machine running Windows. In this way, it either applies a patch or it notifies the user about the same. But for the loyal users, there is a bad news. Flexera who had bought over Secunia PSI has decided to drop support for the product.

The Grayzone’s story sources recently hacked and leaked documents which allegedly show that the BBC and Reuters participated in a program created by the UK government to “weaken Russia’s state influence.”This appears to be the first instance of Twitter using this particular warning label on an English-language outlet. A search on the platform found one other instance of a version of the “hacked materials” warning label being used. This one was stamped on an Italian outlet’s tweet regarding Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine in January.“These materials may have been obtained through hacking or may be manipulated,” reads the earlier warning label on the tweet, which is in Italian.Mashable has reached out to Twitter for more information. The new warning label comes after Twitter's controversial decision to block links to a New York Post story in October 2020, which included material from a laptop belonging to President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. Twitter was roundly criticized across the politi
The official Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool is one of the largely used tools to prepare bootable USB of Windows operating system. Although it has not received any major updates since its initial release, Microsoft has quietly renamed the program page as Windows USB/DVD Download Tool in the last few months.

Internet Explorer lives on in Edge IE Mode, LTSC Windows 10, and Windows Server.JIM SALTER - 5/20/2021 If you're one of the 10 people on the planet who absolutely loves Microsoft's venerable Internet Explorer browser, you'd better spend quality time with it while you can—Microsoft is retiring the browser on June 15, 2022.The much-hated browser has clung tenaciously to the Windows operating system thanks largely to a never-ending supply of businesses that tailored custom websites and web interfaces using IE-only functionality, because those businesses were unwilling to rewrite them for a more modern web environment. But Microsoft believes that the new Chromium-based Edge has finally licked the problem of IE compatibility once and for all: Full Article.

Apple played a fun song leading into their October 18 redesigned MacBook Pro debut event which was composed entirely of sound effects captured from 45 years of Apple products. If you’re a longtime Apple fan you’ll undoubtedly recognize many of the sounds, from boot chimes, alerts, ringtones, chargers plugging in, and so much more. The song was created by producer A.G. Cook (presumably no relation to Apple CEO Tim Cook), and is a fun listen.Full Article
