Tech News Roundup for Friday March 13th 2015



So I was up at 4am, sort of had a nightmare I guess you could call it, or just a really weird dream about my dead grandmother. I woke up like what was that about?! I guess that’s because it’s Friday the 13th? I ran the latest Windows updates and it killed my computer, I spent over 11 hours trying to get my computer back up and running yesterday, that was not fun. I ran the updates and restarted and I got Bootmgr is missing error and it wouldn’t let me even boot into the Windows install DVD to try and fix it.  I have a ton of reviews coming just not time right now to write them, but I will get them done! Anyway it’s time for the news roundup, so you go ahead and read it as I’ve got things to do.
