Free Data Recovery Services In The Aftermath Of Hurricane Harvey

We live in a digital world that is dominated by all sorts of technology. From the time you arise to the time you retire to bed, you use various types of devices that are meant to make your life easier but somehow make it more complex too in the process. Such an irony is more obvious during phenomenon like natural calamities and disasters when the world’s normal order is broken and people are left to their instincts in order to survive. Although these events happen rarely, the fact that they do happen should be enough to keep everyone on their toes.

The US just recently experienced a major loss especially if you live in or anywhere near Houston, Texas. Hurricane Harvey hit it with such a force that left thousands homeless and millions of lives temporarily displaced until the authorities are able to sort things out and help in the rebuilding and rehabilitation of the state. However, the federal government tries its best to provide for the basic and immediate needs of the people but it can’t always offer help on other equally important matters like in recovering the properties destroyed. Fortunately, help is given to those in need, especially the ones whose homes have been badly hit by the storm and costly gadgets like computers and laptops have been drowned in floodwater much to their owner’s dismay.

Losing a home and personal property to a flood is obviously traumatic, but some people will tell you that losing precious photos and videos can be even worse. Thankfully,  DriveSavers is stepping up and offering free data recovery services to Hurricane Harvey victims.  The company can recover data from broken phones and computers, even those that have been fully submerged in water. DriveSavers typically charges hundreds to thousands of dollars per phone or computer, depending on the complexity of the recovery.

In a press release, DriveSavers offered its services to those in Houston, Austin, Corpus Christi and all other areas hit by Hurricane Harvey and its continued rain. The company is limiting its services to one phone or hard drive per household.


Data recovery is a crucial service in the aftermath of a natural disaster like a hurricane where water is the biggest threat to the integrity of your tech gadgets. Let’s not forget how sensitive these gadgets are and you will likely lose all your important files after having them exposed to the harsh elements for days on end. The biggest hurdle of all is the expense associated with such a costly service like data recovery that is a major burden to people who are trying to rebuild their lives soon after surviving a disaster.

iPad Failed To Deliver Its eBook Promise

Technology is all over our modern world. Wherever you look, there is some sort of modern tech contrivance that promises you the moons and the stars if you can afford to pay its high price tag.

Sleeping Needs Differ For Everyone

People often complain of not getting enough sleep despite the many modern contrivances that are supposed to make life easier and better. The funny irony in modern life is that the brains of this generation and that of previous years developed technologies that saved us from doing as much manual labor as we can yet we still end up feeling tired and sleepless at the end of the day.

Undermining Children’s Mental Health

Adults today can still remember what it was like to be young kids even if it is just but a distant memory. It is a fun and enjoyable experience especially that you have little worries and only thought about playing the entire time. However, not all kids are fortunate enough to enjoy that carefree and sheltered life. Many children today are exposed to violence or aren’t given enough attention or needs are unmet because some parents are not just ready for this added responsibility they have so willingly made. Even back then, there were already children who suffered from poor mental health although it wasn’t given much attention nor hyped up because the technology back then was limited and people weren’t as …

Art For A Cause

Most people today do not take art seriously thinking that it is only done by people who have nothing better to do in life and have the luxury to waste time by indulging in interests and past times that aren’t globally relevant such as painting. Nobody takes a painter seriously. Well, most do but there are a few who understands the cultural (and economic) value of paintings to the world at large. If you look at our history closely, you’d learn (and realize) that paintings depict the state of the times. From ancient primitive life to today’s modern world, we learn a lot of things about life and the state of the planet from these paintings and other artworks. It can be …

Charities No Longer Seen As A Saving Grace

In times of adversity and disaster, people can’t always rely on themselves to provide for their needs. When a tragedy is so disastrous, the government often has to intervene and take charge and even third-parties like charitable groups and institutions pitch in to provide support. Many of these charities have evolved to become household names since they are usually the first to respond to disasters like the Red Cross but most are actually low-key and support civic groups and medical causes. For years, the citizens have looked up to them because they have saved many individuals and even communities from countless tragedies and helped them start anew and rebuild their lives.

However, there are many stories coming out now about the …

Turn Weed Into Money

The stigma associated with weed is gradually being erased in the minds of the public as more and more US states declare it legal to grow, sell, and use marijuana either for medical or recreational use. Gone were the times when you’d be highly criticized for using it or you may even end up in jail if you are unfortunate enough to be caught. This change in mindset is evident everywhere from casual talks about weeds and its use and the now ever-growing and lucrative cannabis business that makes money faster than you can grow the weeds itself. And weed growers breed different varieties of cannabis as well that caters to different needs of its end users. Those who are simply after …

North and South Korea never really signed a peace treaty or agreement, hence they are technically still at war with each other until today.  If you haven’t been living inside a hole in recent years, you are also probably aware how many times North Korea has captured the world’s attention because of its brazen acts that mostly revolves on nuclear development and testing and unending threats to everyone who will listen.

Life is a cycle. From youth to old age, most of us experience the same things, happiness, and joys, albeit with a personal twist. If there is one major memory we all share, it’s that of our school life. After all, all of us go to school at an early age and spend a great deal of our day and early life in the four corners of the classroom learning everything we need to know to become a fully-functioning adult once we step out into the real world. It’s for a good reason too because the academe prepares the students for what’s waiting in real life. No, graduation isn’t just an accomplishment or the end to learning but actually the beginning …

Trumpcare Continues To Be A Threat To Democrats

The health and well-being of all Americans had been under fire since President Trump assumed office and he made it clear to all Republicans he wants Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act repealed at all costs, even against expert conference opinions. When that happens, many poor Americans will lose access to the most basic of health care services once Trumpcare gains the upper hand and eventually gets approved in the Senate. The Republicans themselves had a hard time agreeing on the finer points of Trumpcare right from the start that Donald Trump himself even had to constantly threaten some Republican congressmen who can’t make up their minds to pass the bill or else…

Well, the Republicans are the majority now especially …

Terrorists love attention. Aside from their religious extremist views, capturing the attention of the world is what they live for the most.

You can stay updated on current events in various corners of the world and even watch the story unfold in real time in front of your screen, whether on a laptop or your good old TV.

Aside from the web, the people hear these stories first from the media. Considered as the fourth estate, the media/ the press/ the print journalism
