Windows 7 and 8.x Forced Cumulative Updates.

Microsoft will impose a change to the way it will offer updates to pre-Windows 10 computers. No more picking and choosing between individual patches for security and system reliability. These patches will be offered only in a single "Convenience Roll-up" update. A Roll-up is multiple patches rolled into a single update package. The move will have two primary objectives: It will reduce update fragmentation among the millions of Windows computers out there, and it will simplify the update management system for Microsoft.

Tech Term Confusion: "Memory" Means RAM, Not Storage.

Some people say they have "a smartphone with 64 GB of memory", but they don't. Those people might have smartphones with 64 GB of disk space, or storage, but that's different than memory. It's time to clear up this tech term misconception.

New Revo Uninstaller Free Now Supports 64-bit Applications.

Revo Uninstaller has long been regarded as one of the best third party uninstallers available. However, the free version has always suffered from lack of support for removing 64-bit applications (which has previously only been available in the Pro version). Good news; this has all changed with the release of the latest Revo Uninstaller free edition (2.0.0) which comes with a new look interface and full support for removing 64-bit as well as 32-bit applications.
