Bank's data center knocked offline by loud noise



Even though we have SSDs of high capacity, people still use hard disk as they are relatively cheaper and yes Banks too use them. Hard disk drives (HDDs) have moving parts and if a sound is loud enough (sounds are just a vibration in the air, remember) then it might cause the read/write heads of your hard drive to jiggle so much that they end up crashing.
Members of ING Bank found themselves unable to use their debit cards this weekend due to a loud noise caused by a fire extinguisher test knocked out a few dozen hard-drives at the bank's main data center in Bucharest Romania. It's an uncommon, but not unknown phenomenon -- sound causes vibration, and hard-drives hate being jostled.

The data center downtime caused credit card transactions to fail, internet banking to fail, and ATMs to go kaput. Customers expressed their displeasure on Facebook.



The bank was testing an electronics-safe fire suppression system in the main data center, but a pressure discrepancy caused the system to emit a loud noise while expelling inert gas. According to the bank, the sound was measured a over 130dB -- apparently loud enough to knock the HDD's physical components out of alignment.

Solid state drives (SSDs) don't have any moving parts which means that they're not going to care if they suffer a shock or vibration. So folks switch to SSDs.

Should Upgrade to Window 10 ? Feedback from user

 

This post was sponsored by EaseUS.

 

I upgraded my OS (operating system)   from window 8.1 to window 10.  In start I was pleased by its performance as the return of the start menu, adaptive and sleeker. It was more like window 7, moreover the feature no more full screen apps and four-way window snap makes it more interesting. And Cortana was truly helpful because of cross-device functionality but after few days I encountered some problems in this OS. I would like to discuss these problems with you as they are continuously making it difficult for me to use this OS.

Less free storage

 

Windows 10 is a worthy upgrade but it requires a lot of space in your machine. So after doing some research I found one thing that after installing window 10 the previous version of OS is still lingering in the background taking up the space more than required. Your older version of windows doesn’t disappear into the air. This is going by the name of ‘windows.old’.

Privacy

 

As I am not a fan of sharing my things or data  with others.  After doing some digging I found some data sharing defaults in windows 10. So I recommend all users to review this problem. Use the start menu and search for setting app and click privacy in it. When you have opened this you will see in the left hand pane, you will see many areas in which your machine is sharing data. Kindly spend time on this so that you may know in which things/data  you are comfortable sharing with others.

No downgrade 

 

Another problem I faced is no downgrade is available in this OS one month later after upgrade.

Data loss

 

This is the biggest problem you will face in windows 10. If you have important files music/videos stored somewhere in drive C data would be lost. Other data would also be lost from your PC but mainly from C drive.

No system restore

 

Initially the system restore option is not available by default. You could turn this option on but this is a long procedure and it is a time taking one.

Cannot play a DVD

 

It does not come with a app to play DVD on. So to play movies you have to use VLC or other players.

Compatibility

 

Some software and hardware are not compatible with windows 10.


Data recovery software:

 


Now if you are facing the fourth problem discuss above then I have a solution for you. I am going to introduce you the best data recovery software for you from that you can recover your data easily by following three steps. And one more thing this is also memory card recovery software as well. So if you have lost some important pictures, or documents from the memory card then you can get it back through this software.

Here's how to stop Facebook from secretly listening your conversation

Facebook is  using people’s smartphones to listen to what they say. But don't worry, here is an easy solution to stop it


It seems like Facebook have decided to take their advertisement service to the next level. We are already familiar with news that says that Facebook now tracks you even if you don't have an account or even if you have logged out of your account. There's nowhere to hide across the web, especially from the marketing and advertising companies.

Sounds scary right ? Well there is more to it. Facebook now uses people's phone mic to listen to conversation. Yes you heard it right.

Professor Kelli Burns has accused the social networking giant of listening to mobile phone audio of users through one of its features that are only available in the US. Prof. Burns teaches Mass Communications at the University of South Florida and he has managed to open a Pandora’s Box by suggesting that Facebook app might have been prying over unsuspecting users.

Professor Burns has said that the tool appears to be using the audio it gathers not simply to help out users, but might be doing so to listen in to discussions and serve them with relevant advertising. She says that to test the feature, she discussed certain topics around the phone and then found that the site appeared to show relevant ads.

Prof. Burns also proved this by enabling microphone feature on her mobile phone and spoke that she would like to go on a safari: “I’m really interested in going on an African safari. I think it’d be wonderful to ride in one of those jeeps.

Within 60 seconds there appeared a post on her Facebook feed about a safari story, which was posted around three hours before.



But according to the social network’s spokesperson: “Facebook does not use microphone audio to inform advertising or News Feed stories in any way. Businesses are able to serve relevant ads based on people’s interests and other demographic information, but not through the audio collection.”

This feature was introduced in 2014, around two years back and it is being purported by Facebook that it never “always” listens to or stores “raw audio” at all, but it does listens.

Here is how you can stop facebook from listening via your phone's mic


You can easily turn off the microphone on your mobile phone and if you do so, Facebook won’t be able to turn it on even if it wanted to. 


If you use iPhone, turn off microphone by following this pattern:

Settings> Privacy> Microphone.

If you are an Android users , you need to do this:

Settings> Privacy> Facebook> Permissions.
