Monday morning this tidbit from an email news service appeared on my computer. I am posting it because it is worrisome and may affect other segments of our existence.
It illustrates one of the ignored dangers of our reliance on electronic records and instruments of every day life. Microsoft believes in planned obsolescence so products must be repurchased with the newer model.
I recently ran into a similar problem with an data base program that I had been using for perhaps 2 to 3 decades but the newer operating systems refuse to recognize it and the present edition can't transfer information. The program Filemaker was not a Microsoft product when I started using it but now is owned by Microsoft.
