It’s critical to protect important files on an extra hard drive to prevent accidental loss

importance-an-hd

I recently heard a story from a popular tech blogger about when an operating system update went awry and nearly deleted all the content she had stored on her computer’s internal hard drive. Microsoft implemented a standard OS update to Windows 10 20H2 and is customary. We’ve all gone through it and typically it’s nothing more than us needing to wait to use the computer while the update takes place. In this case, when the person went to turn on their computer after the update, there was nothing on their desktop and they couldn’t find any of their files. In a panic, they tried multiple tricks to recover the data, mind you this is a very tech savvy person, not the average user. Finally, they were able to eventually recover the missing data, but there was the possibility, especially for someone without the technical expertise, to have lost everything.

There’s a simply solution to protect your content, keep your critical files, (or at least a backup), on a separate detached hard drive. By keeping your critical content on a hard drive that doesn’t contain your operating system and is not permanently connected to your computer and the internet, there’s no chance an external factor can corrupt the content on the drive. Plus, that separate hard drive means you can place it in a separate location, so if a catastrophic incident happens, having your important files in a separate location adds even greater protection.

As the old saying goes, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. That’s true with your digital content as well. Protect yourself and make sure you backup and keep critical files separate from your computer for maximum security.

Vinpower and the 2022 CES tradeshow persevered through the latest bout of the COVID outbreak

2022-CES-persevered

The 2022 CES tradeshow was supposed to be a return to normalcy in a way, but the omicron variant had other plans. With numerous major companies pulling out and even some who didn’t exhibiting little more than a virtual presence with no staff and a do it yourself maze of QR codes due to COVID related concerns, CES persevered and opened its doors for the 1st time in 2 years on Wednesday, January 5, 2022. Vinpower was there to face the challenge and great those attendees that also took a chance and participating is the pinnacle for the electronics industry.

Even though there were fewer exhibitors and a limited crowd, the attendance was still full of passionate participants that all followed the guidelines and were anxious and excited to see what was on display. Vinpower, exhibiting in a new location with a new exhibition booth, was excited to show our wares to what was certain to be many new faces that had never visited or heard of us before. So even with a scaled back show, Vinpower was pleased with the enthusiastic reception and the opportunity to share our product range with a wider audience.

What the future holds for CES is anybody’s guess, but I would bet that 2023 will find a reinvigorated group of attendees and exhibitors and Vinpower will once again be amongst them.

Best to keep copies of your favorite holiday movies on optical discs, as they are not always available when you want to watch them.

holiday-movies-BD

One tradition we have at our house in December is to watch the animated and stop motion Claymation movies from the 70’s. Movies like A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Christmas Claymation movies from Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass, like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”, “Jack Frost”, plus so many other popular holiday classics. These movies were run frequently on regular broadcast over the air TV or “Free TV” throughout the month, however recently, a number of the pay streaming services started acquiring these classics and broadcasting them exclusively for their paid content audience. For instance, Apple TV acquired A Charlie Brown Christmas and now it cannot be shown anywhere except through Apple TV. That means if you don’t subscribe to Apple TV, because it’s too expensive, not enough programming to justify the cost, or you simply have 12 other video streaming platforms you already subscribe to and can’t justify adding another, then you can’t want this animated holiday classic.

Instead of being at the mercy of the video streaming services, instead, get these classics on DVD or Blu-ray so that you can watch them whenever and wherever you want. That’s why keeping and acquiring movies and even music on optical discs is still worthwhile, because you never can tell when something you want to watch or listen to will actually be available on the streaming services you subscribe to when you want to watch them.

CES 2022 is less than a month away, Vinpower is excited to have our biggest showing to date.

2022-CES-online (1)

With more than 15+ years exhibiting at CES, including a slight sabbatical in 2021 when CES put on an all-digital, Vinpower is ready and poised to return to an in person event and present our best showing ever at the 2022 CES tradeshow. After being a staple in the South Hall, we have made a huge jump up to exhibit in the Central Hall, along with the giants of the industry.

For those that plan to attend at least 1 of the days from January 5th – 8th, 2022, Vinpower’s booth will be located in Central Hall, booth # 15544.

The iXflash Cube has added security measures to make sure everyone’s files are protected.

Cube-trustcircle

In Taiwan this past week, there’s a huge scandal where a politician and her boyfriend had a huge dispute that led to possible criminal charges and certainly joint lawsuits against each other. The reason for the utter downfall of both their relationship and their sanity was due to infidelity on both sides. The reason any of this came to light was because of a shared mobile backup device that they didn’t realize they shared and discovered intimate secrets held on their phones.

The backup device in question is made by another company and doesn’t have any fail safe systems in place like the iXflash Cube does. So when each person plugged in their iPhone into the charger with this backup device connected, it backed up all their contents indiscriminately. That’s how both parties discovered the indiscretions that they kept on their iPhones.

The iXflash Cube offers the Trust Circle feature which restricts access to only those allowed into the trust circle. That way the iXflash won’t backup random iPhones or iPads that are not part of the Trust Circle and only those with access can use it. It allows people to keep their content private and not have accidental disclosures like other devices do.

So if you care about your content to want to make sure you have a secure backup and make sure others don’t load their content with yours, then the iXflash Cube is the best choice!

The LA ports are congested with boats waiting to offload for weeks, order early to avoid significant delays…

Congestion-the-ports

I’m sure that most of you are aware of the tremendous delays for sea freight deliveries, but may not be aware as to why. I can’t speak for all the ports, but I have 1st hand knowledge as to the reason for the slowdown at the Los Angeles port. Firstly, the COVID pandemic shutdown and slow reopening’s limited the port’s ability to offload at the same efficiency. Then, because of a lack of workers for both inside the port and for truck drivers to haul the containers away, container vessels are parked just offshore for miles and miles just waiting patiently for their turn to enter the port and unload. These delays have been going on for over a year, and it doesn’t look like it’s easing up any time soon. As you can see from the attached images, there are boats just sitting offshore queued up, some as far off as 40 miles from port, waiting in line like a traffic jam on the freeway. Even when boats make it in to the port, it’s still taking a much longer time to unload and head back to pick up more product.

All this is to say, whatever it is you regularly purchase, or have been planning to buy, you need to place your orders much earlier than usual and be patient. Lead times are much longer than usual, so if you can’t wait, maybe you can be flexible on the specifications and opt to bridge the gap with an item similar to what you need. For instance, we had some extremely cold items that were sitting in our warehouse since 2018 that we couldn’t sell. It wasn’t that the product was defective, it’s just because it was a special order that got canceled and didn’t match anyone else’s needs. Well, desperate times calls for desperate measures. Due to shortages, customers that weren’t interested before were all too happy to take that 2018 inventory. To them and their customers, it didn’t matter if it didn’t look like what they usually bought, they just need something that worked. There you have it, compromise at its best.
