The ‘Textalyzer’ Could Help Curb Distracted Driving in New York

The ‘Textalyzer’ Could Help Curb Distracted Driving in New YorkNew York lawmakers have proposed implementing a new test to curb mobile phone usage behind the wheel: the Textalyzer.Much like its nominal inspiration, the Breathalyzer, the Textalyzer would allow law enforcement to ask for phones from drivers involved in accidents and then determine whether those phones had been illicitly used while the drivers operated their vehicles. The bill that could usher in this policy is currently in the early committee stage in the New York State Senate, the New York Times reports.Any drivers who refused to hand over their phones to an officer after a crash could have their license suspended, similar to the terms of the Breathalyzer test. The Textalyzer would not have access to a phone’s content, but only whether it had been used recently.New York has hands-free driving laws, which means people operating vehicles cannot use smartphones or hold cells to their ears for calls while driving.

“Intensive Read” Force to Recover the Incomplete Data

“Intensive Read” can be explained as forcing to read. In order to enhance the readability of HDD with bad sectors, the program improves the intensity of working heads with a group of special instructions. Normally, that method is used in the application of such important data recovery by force. But we do not suggest that method due to degradation caused potentially. Only for a few of important files( such as evidence in court, database files, etc. ), the data recovery can have a good result beyond the normal mostly. For example, in an important case of investigation, the image recovered cannot display normally as following, but the second is a good result processed by intensive read. Pic. 1#, normal recovery method on the HDD with bad sectors Pic. 2#, intensive read on the HDD Recurrence: tutorial on “Intensive Read” hand-by-handNext, we will take a Seagate HDD( Model NO. ST94011A, SN: 3KW1AA08 ) of laptop as an example of data recovery. 1. Inspection of HDD externalFirstly, w

Please check step by step as following rules. 1. A good quality power supplyUnstable voltage can heavily impact the PC, specifically the HDD. If the voltage jumps up and down, it will make an unstable running speed of drive’s disk and even worse the lifetime of HDD. Causes of unstable voltage can be concluded as the following two points. Firstly, the power supply of PC has a bad q
