Business and government organizations have shifted from paper to digital records. Banks too have computerized their operations. Digitization has given rise to cases of cyber crime where an individual may be rightly or wrongly accused of a crime. Where digital data is involved defense attorneys as well as prosecution turn to experts in computer forensics to gather vital data from a computer, laptop or smartphone’s memory.
In recent times there has been a rise in cyber crimes and a rise in the demand for computer forensic services. An individual may be wrongly accused in a cyber crime case and in such instances his defense attorney would employ a specialist in computer forensics who follows a legally accepted process to uncover evidence that will stand in a court of law. The critical factor is that such data collection needs to be carried out in a way that accesses even encrypted or deleted data but leaves the structure and original data intact i.e. it should be minimally invasive. This is not a task for any IT expert but it requires specialized training and use of specialized equipments that guarantee original data remains unchanged while information is extracted.
Heat will kill the life span of your trading computer. It’s like rust on a classic car. Over time, with out the right care, this will eat away at the metal of the car and completely ruin it. Your internal computer components do not like to be exposed to heat. This is why cooling and heat dissipation is essential to your trading computer. There is good news here though. The best stock trading computer will have several defenses built into the computer that battle this issue. This is why there are more guarantees in the lifespan of a computer built for trading. These types of issues are thought of in advance and built into the design of the computer. Allowing your computer to become to hot is horrible for the internal components. Not only will this dramatically shorten the lifespan of your trading computer, it will also cause damage or potentially a data loss. High temperatures will affect your processor and motherboard. This is why your trading computer needs a great cooling system. A computer that is a workhorse like your trading computer should not be built with out the proper cooling system thought
In April 2014, just after world health officials identified a series of suspicious deaths in Guinea as an outbreak of Ebola, 10 ecologists, 4 veterinarians, and an anthropologist traveled to a Guinean village named Meliandou. Theirs was a detective mission to determine how this outbreak began. How had “patient zero,” a 2-year-old boy named Emile, contracted the Ebola virus?
Because we believe people catch Ebola through contact with infected animals, ecologists have long sought the animal “reservoirs” that harbor the virus and pass it along (often without getting sick themselves). With every new outbreak of a zoonotic disease like Ebola, scientists race to identify the reservoirs so that public health officials can determine the method of transmission and perhaps prevent more “spillover events,” in which the disease flows from animal reservoirs to people. Such is today’s post hoc, reactive model of dealing with outbreaks.
In Meliandou, the Ebola detectives interviewed villagers, studied primate populations in nearby forests, and collected bats in nets. In December 2014, they published a paper hypothesizing that little Emile had contracted Ebola from a colony of insect-eating bats that lived in a hollow tree, near where the local children often played. But the tree had caught fire before the
Typing six words per minute may not sound very impressive. But for paralyzed people typing via a brain-computer interface (BCI), it’s a new world record.
To pull off this feat, two paralyzed people used prosthetics implanted in their brains to control computer cursors with unprecedented accuracy and speed. The experiment, reported today in Nature Medicine, was the latest from a team testing a neural system called BrainGate2. While this implant is only approved for experiments right now, researchers say this demonstration proves that such technology can be truly useful to quadriplegics, and points the way toward regular at-home use.
The two people who volunteered for this study have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, a degenerative neural disorder that leads to complete paralysis. Lead researcher Jaimie Henderson, co-director of Stanford’s Neural Prosthetics Translational Lab, calls it a “humbling experience” to work with quadriplegic patients who willingly undergo brain surgery and devote themselves to science experiments that will push forward this early-stage technology. “They’ve become true partners with us in this endeavor,” Henderson says.
The BrainGate2 system consists of an array of minuscule electrodes implanted, in this case, in a region of the motor cortex known as the “hand knob.” The electrodes record the patterns of electrical activity in the neurons
SFTP is more secure and tends to be more reliable than FTP, so it is the recommended option where possible. To use SFTP, your FTP program may include one of the following:
- The option to use SFTP from a menu.
- A field to enter Port 22.
- The ability to enter your server URL as sftp://example.com. Please replace example.com with your own domain name.
While using SFTP and using Bitvise sftp client from a Window server 2008/R2 box for some my project and trying to send a file about 6MB out to a partner, the upload is stopping at 100% with and I am constantly getting a error similar to the following:

Keystroke logging (for the most part called keylogging) is the activity of following the keys struck on a console, regularly in a clandestine way so that the individual utilizing the console is uninformed that their activities are being observed.
There are various ways to deal with use keyloggers in which one way incorporates leaving the USB circle in the PC for the full time of recording time. Exchange incorporates associating it to starting a framework on the PC and unplugging the devise. In this way the PC will record until stopped and one can recuperate the information next time when get on the PC alone.
Basically USB Keyloggers work by recording USB action in gear. There is no item to acquaint with record or recover keystrokes on PC or Mac. Central purposes of USB Keyloggers
- It is definitely not hard to use, as one needs to simply connection the Keylogger to comfort and record all USB keystrokes composed on that support. Further, it can be related regardless whether PC is turned on or off.
- Devices are helpful with is usage. Then again, Keystrokes can be recorded on one PC and recuperated on another.
- If a USB console works when it is ceased to PC then

Compromising the evidence due to the lack of skills and technology is a common risk when IT professionals in companies or computer geeks try to track computer activity or recover data in order to obtain proofs and facts. To gather digital evidence without modifying the metadata requires appropriate digital forensic skills, techniques and experience. The field of forensic science which aids the retrieval of intelligence and information from electronic devices like computers, laptops, mobile phones, hard drives, internet cloud storage, network servers and peripheral memories or devices and helps correlate the data to verify or nullify aspects of a case is called digital forensic science.
Computer Forensic Services primarily find application in the field of forensic investigation of both criminal and civil litigations. Also, evidence discovered with this methodology is considered as most accurate and factual by a court of Law during trials. Some of the basic Computer Forensic Services are:
Helping you gather evidence in the form of documents, files, audio, videos, photos, images, emails, deleted financial statements and records by analyzing electronically stored information
Accessing information from a pool of devices used by you – computers, laptops, tablets, cell phones, printer, scanner, hard drives, external memory devices, SD cards etc

Everyone gets older, and there’s nothing that can really change that. That doesn’t mean that you can’t fight the signs of aging. Every year I would look in the mirror and notice that I was getting a little bit older. Wrinkles would start appearing, my hair looked a little thinnner, and my bones were starting to crack like an old person. Of course, I was only in my mid 30s, but I was still looking out for father time. One day I received a messgae to read about Gen F20 Plus here. It all seemed like gibberish to me, but there was a picture of a couple who looked young and youthful.
The picture of the couple enticed me enough to check out the message, and took me to a website about a supplement that claimed to fight the signs of aging. I’m always a little skeptical of medicines that I see advertised on the Internet, because a lot of them are not approved by the FDA, and could possibly have some kind of hidden danger associated with them. If not that, then the medicine could not work at all, and would only be a placebo and a waste of
Did you know that there are different hair classifications for hair? I had no idea! Not until I started selling my hair online to wig makers did I stumble onto this order of classification that is used to organize the different hair types that exist. From straight hair which falls under Type 1a to C to Wavy and Curly hair. My hair, which I sell to curly clip in hair extensions makers, is a Type 1 kind of hair. Type 1 hair, straight hair, is considered the type that reflects the most sheen and glimmer. It’s thought to be the most resilient of the hair types thanks to its hard to damage strength.
Of course, the down side to this kind of hair is that it’s nearly impossible to curl this hair type. Thanks to the sebum oil produced by the sebaceous glands on the scalp, you’ll find that straight hair ends up becoming the most oily of hair. I was surprised that straight hair is actually some of the most wanted hair type – right next to Kinky and Curly Hair Type. Who knew that wigs were such a huge business or that there are people out there who
First came a storage server, then online office tools, not to mention a business search engine — all with a significant small biz focus. Now, Microsoft is readying release of a version of its core business software suite specifically suited to small- and medium-sized businesses.
According to Information Week, Microsoft’s code-named Centro software — now re-named Windows Essential Business Server— will be shipped next year.
Whether you need Centro depends on how big your business is and what sort of in-house IT/admin support you have. Microsoft says the software is targeted at companies with 25 to 250 computers. You’ll have to install and maintain it yourself, which makes it out of reach for some small businesses.
The Standard Edition of the new platform will include Exchange Server 2007 for messaging, Forefront Security for Exchange, System Center Essentials for management and Internet Security and Acceleration Server aka ISA Server for firewalling and security.
Pricing isn’t available yet, but if your small business is big enough to run its own infrastructure, Microsoft servers and software are always a good option.
Hands-up: how many small business owners have picked up a discounted copy of Microsoft Office for Teachers and Students to use in the office?
You’re not alone. The suite gives you most of what you need and you don’t *really* need to fit the profile to buy it — you can’t pick it up in a store like Costco without much fuss.
If you like your software packaged, Microsoft may soon have another alternative for you — and one that doesn’t force you to pretend you’re still a student.
InfoWorld tells the story:
Facing pressure from hosted productivity suites like Google Docs and Google Apps, Microsoft is planning a new package of low-end productivity software and hosted services through a secretive project code-named Albany.
Project Albany puts together a combination of Office, Office Live Workspaces, Windows Live OneCare and the Windows Live suite of services in one package that eventually is expected to be available in retail outlets such as Best Buy.
Worrying about your PC monitor set up may seem pointless, but multi-monitor set ups are all the rage these days with the goal of significantly improving productivity
According to a from the University of Utah:
* People using the 24-inch screen completed the tasks 52% faster than people who used the 18-inch monitor
* People who used the two 20-inch monitors were 44% faster than those with the 18-inch ones.
* Productivity dropped off again when people used a 26-inch screen.
This blogger offers his assessment of the value of multiple monitors in easier to digest terms:
Let me be perfectly clear on this matter: more is more. More usable desktop space reduces the amount of time you spend on window management excise. Instead of incessantly dragging, sizing, minimizing and maximizing windows, you can do actual productive work. With a larger desktop, you can spend less time mindlessly arranging information, and more time interacting with and acting on that information. How much that matters to you will depend on your job and working style. Personally, I’d be ecstatic if I never had to size, position, or arrange another damn window for the rest of my life.
How many monitors
With the emergence of cloud computing coupled with software as a service (SaaS), Web 2.0, and the proliferation of advanced wireless technologies and mobile devices, small businesses today are able to access a wealth of powerful and affordable technology solutions like never before. Moreover, those small businesses that are willing and ready to bring this technology into their operations are beginning to realize that they can even outrun and outsmart their big business competitors.
But with all this hoopla, it may become difficult for small business owners to sort out which equipment and applications are necessary, and which are not (or at least not for right now). Knowing how, if, and when, to bring in new technology is essential to the health of your business and can noticeably impact your bottom line. Here are a few things to consider before acquiring any new equipment or software for your company.
Why are you looking for this technology? First you need to define what you want to change or improve in your business. Depending on your needs, you may decide to hold off acquiring new technology if a
According to a 2008 Gartner report, 15% of all IT projects failed that year because of high cost variance, while 18% were unsuccessful because they were substantially late.* This means that in 2008, 1 in 3 technology projects failed. Why such a dismal success rate? Such projects primarily involve the management of human resources in order to accomplish the target schedule, cost, and quality, so it is safe to assume that poor resource management played a large role. Unfortunately, without effective resource management processes, such organizations are left asking questions like:
- “Who is working on what?”
- “How do I get this project back on schedule?”
- “How much more work will it take to finish?”
The Problem with IT Projects Today
IT project teams are made up of knowledge workers who are categorized by skill types or job functions. For example, a project team might require business analysts, developers, team leads, project managers, architects, or database analysts. Finding the right person to assign to a project or task can be the most challenging problem confronting the organization. Typically, quality staff is scarce and therefore heavily sought by competing projects. Without resource management processes, the organization struggles with
