M.I.T Tinfoil Hat Study

A group of MIT students conducted a study on the effectiveness of tinfoil hats blocking radio frequencies. The students came up with three hat designs, the Classical, the Fez and the Centurion all using two layers of aluminum foil. The group of students carried out various tests on a group of four individuals using a $250,000 network analyzer. The group of MIT students found that instead of actually blocking various radio frequencies the tinfoil hats actually amplified these radio waves by 30 or 20 dB depending on the wave frequency that is being produced.

Data Recovery

The most common data recovery procedure we perform involves a computer that won’t boot due to a drive failure. This is most often caused by a bump or a knock to the computer while the hard disk is writing critical data. Sometimes the head physically crashes into the the plater. This is where the term ‘hard drive crash’ originated. Of course failure of spinning hard disks happens for many reasons include wear and tear. Some drives spin at 10,000 rpm with as little as 3 nanometres separating the drive head from the disk plater. This provides very little room for error. Something that goes hand in hand with data recovery is your backup plan. If you don’t have a backup policy in place please contact us straight away for a tailor made solution. To ensure we can recover as much data as possible stop using the media or the effected computer straight away. Stage one recovery prices start from only $250 for most media types including hard drives, discs and flash cards. This price includes GST and the replacement drive. In most situations we can recover your data in this first stage. The second stage of disc recovery is the [&hellip
