    Microsoft ending mainstream support for Windows 7 in early 2015

    The inevitable transition to Windows 8 continues unabated. Microsoft published an update on its support site on Tuesday with a list of products reaching the end of their Mainstream Support life cycles in the coming months, including Windows Server 2008, Exchange Server 2010 and most notably, Windows 7 Home, Professional, Starter, Enterprise and Ultimate. On January 13th, 2015, all of these products and services will be moving to Extended Support, a five year plan which includes regular, free security updates and paid hotfix support. After the deadline, design changes and new features will no longer be considered though.

    Girlfriend says she told accused Boston bomber's friend to dump backpack

    By Daniel Lovering BOSTON (Reuters) - A Kazakh woman said in a videotaped deposition shown in court on Wednesday she demanded that her boyfriend dispose of a backpack containing empty fireworks shells he had taken from the college dorm room of his friend Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the accused Boston Marathon bomber. The testimony came on the third day of the trial of Azamat Tazhayakov, a Kazakh exchange student who was one of three friends of Tsarnaev who prosecutors have charged with hampering the investigation by removing the backpack from the suspect's room and tossing it into a dumpster. Bayan Kumiskali, a Kazakh national and a student at Babson College outside Boston, said she had been staying at the New Bedford, Massachusetts, apartment of her boyfriend, Dias Kadyrbayev, when he told her about the backpack he had taken three days after the deadly blasts while police were searching for Tsarnaev. Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev have both been charged with obstruction of justice and conspiracy for taking the backpack and a laptop.

    The cavernous building that will house the final assembly line of China's own passenger plane is virtually empty, except for an enormous Chinese flag and slogans to rally the workers who will one day produce the C919. Its mission is to compete with US aircraft maker Boeing's 737 and the A320 of European consortium Airbus. The plane's builders, the Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC), said they recognise the issues, but they have the full financial and political backing of the Communist state and believe they will ultimately be successful. "We will try (for the first flight) at the end of next year," said Zhang Zhengguo, of COMAC's publicity team.
