How to Extend Windows Trial Versions up to Three Times Longer

A Windows trial version is great because it gives you a way to see what the OS has to offer before you shell out cash. They are full-featured versions of the operating system so they really have no downside, except for the fact that they expire. If your trial has run out before you’ve decided whether or not you want a full upgrade, you can actually extend the trial up to three times and it’s not even illegal.

Open a command prompt in your trial version of windows and enter the following command, “slmgr /rearm”. Once done, hit “Enter” and restart your computer. For a three month trial, such as the Windows 8.1 Enterprise Trial, that gives you nearly nine months to try before you buy. Most Windows trial versions let you rearm three times, but try for a fourth and you’ll be denied. Check out a recent article posted on PureIntoTech by Mauro for more information about rearming trial versions of Windows. The article also tells you have to use the slmgr command to find out more information about your license information.

If you find value in this little tip, make sure to pass it along to any friends you have who are running a Windows trial.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
