I wasn’t surprised by the article. I owned a security company back in the late 70’s early 80’s and I was continually amazed at the people that experienced a break-in at least twice before installing a security system.
We rely on our technology so much that we are very disappointed when it fails. We are programmed to look for the cheapest bargain out there and when it comes to technology there are no exceptions. We want more for less and when it comes to storing our data the devices are becoming less expensive with twice the memory. How do you accomplish that ? Simple, cut corners on reliable parts. i have a data recovery guy in mississsauga that has increased business exponentially over the last 3 years becuase the $99.00 2 terra byte drives are failing at an alarming rate.
