    Microsoft ended Windows XP Support on April 8, 2014 after 12 years. You cannot fault them for support it that long. Few cars last that long. No automatic patches or technical assistance will be provided unless you have a company contract with Microsoft. Microsoft antivirus software will cease to update after a while. What does this mean? From the Microsoft website:

    • Your Computer might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses

    Whether you are at home or on the road, you can access free Wi-Fi virtually everywhere, from airports and hotels to coffee shops and fast food restaurants. But while it’s convenient to be able to easily tie into a wireless network, it can also be dangerous. If you aren’t careful, you could be making it way too convenient for hackers to do what they do best: steal your personal and business information.

    Any time you use a free Wi-Fi hotspot that does not require a password, you should assume that a hacker can see everything you send and receive. Some Wi-Fi hot spots, such as those offered by AT&T and Comcast, require you to log in with your user name and password. All they are doing, however, is restricting access to the network; they are not creating a secure wireless connection.
