LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

We Said Goodbye to These Technologies in 2022

Happy New YearTechnologies come and go all the time.  Here’s some of the bigger technologies that had their plugs pulled in 2022:

  • The iPod: No, not the old classic one with the wheel.  The iPod Touch.  Apple announced there will be no more.  By now, the universe of old iPhones that people can use as iPods is so enormous that a dedicated iPod isn’t needed any more.
  • Blackberry OS: “As a reminder, the legacy services for BlackBerry 7.1 OS and earlier, BlackBerry 10 software, BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 and earlier versions, will no longer be available after January 4, 2022”.  So says the BlackBerry OS FAQ page.  This OS goes back to 1999.
  • Google Stadia: Google’s cloud gaming offering never really gained steam (ha!) with users, folding after less than 3 years in operation.
  • Facebook Portal: Turns out consumers down want a Zuckerberg spy cam in their home.  Who knew?
  • CentOS 8: CentOS moved to a, uh, streaming platform and CentOS 8 went EOL 12/31/2021.
  • Debian 9 (Stretch): End of long-term support was June 30.
