Are You Prepared for Windows 7 End of Support?
Microsoft has announced Windows 7 End of Support will take place on January 14, 2020. Instead of supporting Windows 7, their efforts will be spent on supporting new technologies and new versions of Windows. You can find out the implications of this and what it means for you or your business below.
What is Windows 7 End of Support?
After January 2020, you will no longer receive Windows 7 security updates. Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or Windows 7 support. Depending upon the primary use of your device that operates Windows 7, it may be important that you upgrade to a newer Windows operating system to avoid being at risk to security breaches.
End of support for Windows 7 means “technical assistance and software updates from Windows Updates that help protect your PC will no longer be available.”
By replacing your system or upgrading to a new version of Windows, your business or personal security will be aligned with a more robust and secure system that will be under warranty with Microsoft.
As a standard, Windows 10 provides encryption on all machines, meaning your machines will be further secured against security risks.
What do I need to do?
If your you or your company has machines running on Windows 7, they are likely to be over 3 years old. It may be that your machines are all up to date, however, we strongly recommend you take action by October 1, 2019 and speak with your technology provider like us, as soon as possible to allow plenty of time should changes be needed.
Recycling is very important in maintaining and protecting the Earth. There are many environmental and public benefits of recycling such as lessening the amount of pollution, conserving energy, gaining recoverable resources and ultimately helps us lessen the amount of natural resource depletion.

Are you thinking of throwing away that old laptop, netbook or desktop computer, or old computer parts and accessories? Do you have something that needs repair that you want to get rid of?
In an effort to help you and our environment, along with reducing the amount of "electronic trash" that ends up ultimately in our landfills, The Technology Tree is looking to collect as many of these types of items as we can, either for recycling or reusing in other ways. We feel it is best to have electronics recycled as throwing away or dumping some electronics can be illegal due to the hazardous contents inside.
Examples of the types of items were able to recycle are: Laptop Computers, Desktop Computers, Netbook Computers, Tablets, MP3 Players, Monitors (No CRT or Tubes), Computer Software & Media, Computer Parts (Hard Drives, Sound & Graphics Cards, etc.) and much more....
If you are interested, you can begin the process by contacting us via e-mail or send us a message on Facebook. Please be sure to include a full description of your items.
Alternatively, you can also drop off your items for recycling at our store located at 6014 Huguenard Road, Suite C, Fort Wayne, IN 46818
