Technology Madness

What to do with unwanted technology/ hardware? I ask this question as tiding up the other day I counted up the Items I have lying about in drawersí, cupboards and in the loft and itís quite a list

Phillips Mobile phone
Nokia Mobile phone
Samsung Mobile phones (2)
2 dead I-phones (my wifeís)
XP Desktop, now obsolete
Vista Laptop, now obsolete
Windows 7 (Starter) laptop Soon to be obsolete
Windows 7 Home Desktop, soon to be obsolete
2 Android tablets getting slower by the day
I-Pad and I-Pad mini (My wifeís) getting slower by the day
Iím now using a Dell Inspiron windows 10 home laptop, which is two years old now and the spec although still ok is staring to look outdated when looking at current units now being advertised.

Now Iím no luddite but donít you think Technology is getting out of hand? It seems Microsoft want you to buy new hardware every couple of years, in the list above the computers are in good condition and the only problems are the operating systems being phased out some of the phones are a bit battle scarred but still work.
I was miffed when Microsoft dumped XP, even Vista didnít seem as bad as some people thought, but Iím greatly miffed at Windows 7 getting canned.
Iíve been using Windows 10 now for a couple of years but I still think itís a crap system and Microsoft have too much control over your system as nearly every update I have to rearrange things and there is always stuff being put on my machine without my consent.

So, what do you think?
