Recently, Microsoft officially ended support for Windows XP to the general public, but along with certain government agencies, those running the Windows Embedded Industry variant of the OS will also continue to get updates until 2019. Formerly known as Windows Embedded POSReady, it’s based on Windows XP Service Pack 3, and since the updates are perfectly compliant with the end user version of Windows XP, you too can benefit from these security fixes.

Security isn’t the kind of thing you should play fast and loose with, and the same goes for security online. In a day and age where we manage almost all of our lives on the Internet, having a computer, phone or tablet that’s potentially open to mischievous entities is far from ideal, but that’s the position users of Internet Explorers find themselves in today.

Net Applications has just released its monthly NetMarketShare statistics, and with Windows 8.1 on the horizon, it throws up some rather interesting findings regarding adoption rates of currently available versions of the Redmond company’s platform. Notably, Windows 8 usage seems to have seen a significant upturn, with a leap from 5.42 percent to 7.65 percent worldwide during the month of August alone. Meanwhile, Windows XP, which still enjoys a healthy market share despite its age, dipped from 37.19 percent to 33.66 percent.

An operating system upgrade is always worth having, in my opinion. Newer changes are almost always valuable, and the ability to utilize the latest technology on your smartphone, tablet, computer or laptop is a much-needed benefit. Similar holds true for Windows – the world’s most used PC operating system – where Windows 8 is the latest and greatest in the choices that you have. A lot of people have their issues with the operating system, but that isn’t stopping Microsoft from making constant updates to the OS, making it even better than before. I leave the debate of how useful Windows 8 is at that, and come to something that’s actually limited in the operating system: backward compatibility. Up until Windows 7, Microsoft allowed users to run applications that were compatible with, say, Windows XP, but that has been taken out in the latest iteration of Windows.

Of the many upcoming entries to the technology fray, Windows 8 is by far one of the most anticipated. The Consumer Preview dropped in February to critical acclaim, and although there’s nothing particularly amiss with the current Windows 7, consumers are still pretty eager to sink their teeth into the Metro interface.

Sometimes someone comes up with a beautiful piece of tinkering that results in a thing of beauty. Something that either creates a need that we didn’t know existed deep within our hearts or plugs a hole we’ve been trying to fill for years. Something magic.

When we report on cool gadgets, most of them come from well-established, or at least somewhat reputable companies. This time, however, we’re featuring a device that was created by a single Chinese geek with more extra time than most of us would have at our disposal. This enthusiast has created a touch-screen device with Apple’s branding, which, dare we say, looks comparable to most tablets available on the market today, only cleaner.

We have already seen a tool named AirPlayer for Mac OS X which allows you to AirPlay videos from iOS devices to Macs. And now, a similar tool named AirMediaPlayer for Windows has been released which will allow you to stream videos wirelessly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your Windows PCs.

Here is yet another one of those crap-gadgets that are good for nothing. The Sansui P72 is an oversized iPhone clone which is powered by a 1GHz Via C7-M CPU, and backed with 1GB of DDR2 ram and 32GB SSD. It features two USB ports (take that iPad !) along with one that doubles as eSATA, a 1.3 MP webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, and a 3 hours of battery life. The 7-inch resistive touchscreen with 800 x 480 isn’t something to write home about. Oh and this Apple clone runs Microsoft Windows XP, with an iPhone OS like interface layer to go on top of it.
