Report: 95 Percent of the ATMs in the World Still Run Windows XP

Report: 95 Percent of the ATMs in the World Still Run Windows XP
Right now, 95 percent of the 2.2 million ATMs in the world run Windows XP, according to a report by Reuters. Furthermore, Microsoft ends support for the 13-year-old operating system on April 8, only a third of the ATMs currently running XP will have been upgraded to something newer.
But unlike your home PC, which will be on its own after April 8, ATMs will still get security updates and other necessary operating system maintenance—so long as they pay up.

Britain’s five biggest banks—all five of them—are unprepared and are negotiating agreements with Microsoft so the company will continue support. As Reuters reports, it will cost each bank about $100 million total to both maintain support and also get the system upgraded.

Meanwhile, most of the roughly 440,000 ATMs in the United States will also keep running XP for a while after Microsoft officially ends support. They will be on extended contracts, and many will use the switch as an impetus to upgrade their ATMs with microchip readers, increased data encryption, and/or other improvements.

I refuse to accept an ATM card from any bank. Don't need them. Cash, check and credit cards make up the difference.

Holey Moley would Christie be that dumb? to take a helicopter ride

over Fort Lee during the traffic jam?
I was listening to the news and they say that the helicopter rides of Christie are being checked to see if he and Wildstein took a ride over the city during the closed lane dates! I wonder if that was meant by there is proof Christie knew?

That would be extremely dumb - so no, Chrisite, you may be a crook, but you are not smart enough to be president.
Bridgegate probers will look at Christie helicopter rides
The New Jersey legislative committee investigating the Bridgegate scandal will probe records of helicopter rides Gov. Chris Christie took to see if he flew near Fort Lee while lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge were closed, sources told The Post.
Lawmakers also want to know if the New Jersey governor took a ride with then-Port Authority exec David Wildstein, who allegedly orchestrated the lane closures on the order of a Christie aide.
The committee, which meets in Trenton on Monday, is interested in any conversations the governor may have had with Wildstein last Sept. 11 after pictures surfaced of the two together that day.
Two of three lanes leading to the bridge were closed from Sept. 9 through 13.
Sources in the governor’s office said that Christie took a ferry to Ground Zero from Jersey City on the 9/11 anniversary and then flew back to Trenton, but that Wildstein was not on board.
