Businesses and individuals can barely do without technology in their daily lives. In fact, some believe that with technology everything is possible. However, many of us use these devices without considering their status. Notwithstanding whether it is a brand new device or not, it may not be up-to-date. This is because there are so many counterfeit products out there that you can’t trust even if they are brand new. Jumia shares five signs that your technology is outdated; not only outdated but extremely obsolete. In other cases, it may simply require servicing.
Your network frequently crashes
If your server or network experience regular crashes or outages, then you should start thinking of replacing it. Someday, it will crash and it will never restart. Then, you will be faced with an avoidable emergency.
Your workers are always complaining
Employees are the ones that use these technologies daily. If you get complaints from them every day, then you should be concerned. Sooner, rather than later, they will be frustrated, they will not meet deadlines and your entire tech space will collapse. Before it is too late, you should take action.
You are still running Windows XP
Even Microsoft will be sad if you still use Windows XP. XP is way too outdated. So, upgrade to any of the new versions such as Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. And do it now!
It is virus infested
You have installed the best antivirus but your system refused to be cured of the virus. It means that your computer, virus, and antivirus are already romanticizing with one another. And except you format it, the parasitic relationship will continue. Two things: it is either you format it, lose data and have your system back to life or just buy another one from an authorized dealer.
It is annoyingly slow
A race between your computer and a snail will be won by snail. Literarily. This just to show how slow it is. It may need some servicing.
