By Roger Fingas Thursday, February 21, 2019, 05:53 am PT (08:53 am ET) Transcend on Thursday launched a trio of Mac-compatible portable SSDs with USB-C, supporting Gen 2 and UASP for speeds up to 520 megabytes per second. The ESD230C comes in 240-, 480-, and 960-gigabyte configurations, but is notable mainly for its small size, roughly the width and length of a credit card. The ESD240C is bigger, and comes only in 240- and 480-gigabyte configurations. The ESD250C offers the same capacities as the 230C, but in a candybar form factor. The 240C and 250C are the more durable of the group, featuring aluminum housing. The 240C in particular is described as shock-resistant, making it more suitable for field work. If need be the drives can be used with USB-A ports thanks to bundled adapter cables. Pricing wasn't immediately available for all models and configurations. Amazon, however, is selling the 240-gigabyte version of the ESD250C for $109.99. … [Read more...] about Transcend rolls out new USB-C-equipped portable SSDs with Gen 2 speeds
Microsoft offers desktop and server versions of Windows. At first glance Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 look similar, but each has different uses. Windows 10 excels at everyday use, while Windows Server manages many computers, files, and services. Windows 10 and Windows Server Share Similar Code If you load up a clean copy of Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016, it would be easy to confuse the two at first. They can have the same desktop, same start button, and even the same task view button. They use the same kernel and can feasibly run the same software. You can, for instance, install Google Chrome or Microsoft Office on both. But the similarities stop there. Microsoft designed Windows 10 for use as a desktop you sit in front of, and Windows Server as a server (it’s right there in the name) that runs services people access across a network. While Windows Server does have a desktop option, Microsoft recommends installing Windows Server without a Graphical User Interface (or … [Read more...] about What’s the Difference Between Windows and Windows Server?
At Brooklyn’s Books Are Magic, as at most bookstores, the books are organized sensibly: fiction sorted by author’s name; non-fiction under various categories, with books of local interest on their own display; kids’ books sorted by age group and author; new books face-up on the front tables; a wall of cookbooks; a thin shelf of paperback series like 33 1/3. Meanwhile, the people who work at Books Are Magic have their own schemes—or lack of schemes—for organizing their books at home. (The word “mudslide” comes up.) We talked to the staff of Books Are Magic about how they get their books, where they keep them, and how (and if) they get rid of them. Their answers might make you feel better about your own chaotic collection, or proud of your well-sorted one. … [Read more...] about Don’t Worry About Organizing Your Books

It seems like India’s unique identity number Aadhaar has become habitual of occasional security lapses as another security breach case is raising more questions regarding the security of users’ data. According to a report by HuffPost India, an Aadhaar operator named Vikram Sheokhand has fallen prey to unauthorized access of his biometrics which has been misused several times. Vikram is an Aadhaar operator at State Bank of India (SBI) in Haryana. It is suggested that back in November 2018, Sheokhand’s biometrics were used multiple times from different places, which eventually led UIDAI to bar him for five years with a fine of Rs 33 lakhs based on 646 errors. However, only one mistake seemed to have been made by Sheokhand. Furthermore, Sheokhand’s employer asked him to lock his Aadhaar credentials, and the case was sent to SBI and UIDAI for further investigation. For those who are unaware, an … [Read more...] about Another Aadhaar Breach: Aadhaar Operator’s Credentials Stolen And Misused
