Battery for Acer Aspire One 531

“Tamper-proof hardware and software is essential, and manufacturers should ensure that operating software has encryption built in and is signed with securely managed encryption keys, as well as use strong two-factor authentication solutions. To ensure the best protection, authentication and authorisation between the entities and devices exchanging data within the connected car is mandatory and ultimately, it’s about end-to-end security by design – it should never be an afterthought," Hart concluded. +Comment Out of the blue Toshiba has launched an Atom-powered real-time, scale-out, compute-plus-flash analytics engine that is set to compete with Pure’s FlashBlade product.This announcement unveils the first real competition for Pure Storage’s Big Data analytics box and comes from a most unlikely and surprising source, Toshiba not being known at all for enterprise, data centre-class complete systems.Flashmatrix is a Toshiba-designed densely packaged multi-processor, multi-node, server-flash-network system for real-time/streaming analytics. Toshiba calls it a super-converged system and says Flashmatrix enables multiple data sets to be accessed in parallel and scaled linearly.In canned quotery, Ralph Schmitt, Executive of System Development at Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc, stated: “Big data processing can face multiple problems in scaling, latency and power as the customer demands increase. Flashmatrix addresses each of those issues to create a system that is a true solution for analytic processing by offering low-power-consumption, parallel processing to reduce system latency, card level scaling and a large non-volatile memory space shared by all CPUs.”

Each Micro Server has firmware encompassing Virtual Drive Control, a Block device, and extended APIs. The middleware listed is HDFS (Hadoop), Postgres SQL, KVS database, a Distributed File System sand Toshiba Linux (Debian 6).Each Node Module has a Node Controller (NC), eMMC flash with ECC, wear levelling and a write-back cache. The Node Controller provides packet routing, inter-CU communications, flash read/write, ACID control (Lock, Mutex), and calculation (filtering, arithmetic op).A node contains 24 x 64-bit ATOM CPUs (192 cores), 384GB of DRAM, 24TiB of NAND and 24 x 1GbitE ports.The CPUs are logically connected at the edge of a mesh, a 2D torus network, with the NAND drives inside the mesh. Each processor can see all of the flash drives.Seen from above, each node has a set of 48 non-volatile memory drives at the front. The set has two rows of 12 cards, one behind the other, each side of a central front-back row of components.Behind these flash drives are two groups of 6 Micro Server cards, each group being either side of the central component row. The 24 x 1GbitE ports are at the rear of the box.

Thus each node contains two units, each with 12 CPUs (the CUs) and 24 flash cards (the NMs) with 12TB of flash.Toshiba claims Flashmatrix needs one-fifth of the power of an equivalent traditional IT system using X86 processors and disk drives and, of course, everything sits in 2U boxes instead of racks, saving lots of space. The traditional system design has multiple servers in a shared-nothing layout while Flashmatrix has a shared-everything design.Pure Storage’s FlashBlade is a another system designed for real-time big data analytics. That uses integrated Xeon processors with flash storage and PCIe connectivity on integrated server/storage/networking blades, with up to 15 blades in a 4U box.WD’s Infiniflash is a flash storage array for big data storage and that requires an added server and software to turn it into a system, with various partners such as IBM, Nexenta and Tergile offering products based on it. We would expect FlashBlade and FlashMatrix to outperform such systems.Toshiba will have fun establishing a channel to sell such systems, it having either HDD/NAND component channel partners on the one hand and laptop resellers on the other. Channel partners will need big data analytics expertise. Perhaps Toshiba is thinking of OEM-like or reseller deals with existing system suppliers. It’s all a mystery for now.

Classic Shell and Audacity downloads were booby-trapped this week with an old-school software nasty that knackered victims’ Windows PCs.Hackers were able to inject some retro-malware into the popular applications’ installers hosted on fosshub.com, an official home for Classic Shell and Audacity releases among other software projects.When victims fetched the tainted downloads on Tuesday and ran them, rather than install the expected app, the computer’s Master Boot Record (MBR) was replaced with code that, during the next reboot or power on, displayed a cheeky message and prevented the machine from starting up properly. The main drive’s partition table was also likely damaged.We thought these sorts of shenanigans died in the 1980s or early 1990s. In order for this to work, the victim would have to click through a warning that the download was not legit.As you reboot, you find that something has overwritten your MBR! It is a sad thing your adventures have ended here!

Cult of Razer hasn’t anything to share on Twitter – Peggle Crew is, we’re told, actually over here on the social network.Classic Shell is a free and popular application that brings a Windows 7-style start menu back to later Windows editions. Audacity is open-source and described as a free multi-track audio editor and recorder.For some computers, the MBR overwrite worked as Peggle Crew expected with a message displayed. For other systems, bewildered victims were simply dumped at a BIOS configuration screen or a blank screen with a flashing cursor during the next reboot. The broken MBR is repairable, especially if you have a Windows recovery disc to hand, and you’ll need TestDisk to restore a trashed partition table.Less tech-savvy folks may end up wiping their computers and starting from scratch out of frustration. You might want to blow it away anyway and restore from a good backup in case the software nasty left any other surprises on the drive."After I Installed the Windows 10 anniversary update I noticed it had uninstalled Classic Shell and had an even worse start menu as before," said peterb on the Classic Shell forums."So I went to the site, checked if the latest version 4.3 supported the update and downloaded it. When I installed it said it couldn’t be trusted, I installed anyway but it did nothing. When I restarted my laptop it went straight to BIOS. Luckily I had a System Repair Disc close by and I could fix Windows."FossHub tries to be a spyware-less and adware-free host for free and open-source software. According to the site’s administrator on Wednesday, a group of hackers gained control of two user accounts that had access to the Classic Shell and Audacity downloads:
