Quick caveat: Something that kind of bothers me is what I know as the “department of redundancy department”.

This is where someone says something like “3 AM in the morning”. (No offense intended, but the people I hear say this kind of thing most often are from Oklahoma.)

What brings this up today? Well, I’ve been looking for a free trial of Data Rescue 3 for Mac OS X, and someone has posted a review where they keep saying “Data Rescue 3 for Mac OSX 10.” That’s redundant and completely unnecessary. The 10 is covered by the X.

But I digress.

I didn’t ever find a free trial of Data Rescue 3 for Mac OSX. But I did find out that if you buy Data Rescue 3 on Amazon, you will save some money.

The biggest thing that people love about Data Rescue 3 for Mac and PC is not what the program does.

Of course the software will recover your files and rescue you for the temporary hell you are in when you think you have lost your data. It wouldn’t be as popular of a tool as it is, if it didn’t perform well.

However, what people love most about this software, is the support that is offered by the company that makes it – Prosoft. Review after review on Amazon have positively glowing comments about how great the support is, and how “Mike” at Prosoft (Mike in particular) is someone who is very helpful.

Being able to talk to a real person is a great selling point for any software you are buying these days.

It seems we are living in the era of multi-button systems where you get trapped in touch-tone hell (when the reason you’re calling is because you’re already in a nightmare from the data you think you’ve lost).

So that alone makes Prosoft’s Data Recovery 3 a tool worth looking into if you need to recover files which have (mysteriously) gone missing from your Mac.

Or maybe you deleted the data yourself and are now looking to cover your mistake before your wife finds out you’ve (accidentally) deleted all of the wedding photos.

Not that my husband would have any experience with that.

Data Rescue 3 for Mac requires you to have:
PowerPC G4, G5, or Intel
A DVD drive
512MB (or better) RAM
1.0GHz (or better) processor
A Firewire, USB 2.0, eSATA or internal drive where you can recover your data.

There’s not a free trial I can see, but if you want to save money, check out the links below which will take you directly to Amazon’s pages for Prosoft’s Data Rescue 3

Data loss is like a bad dream where you discover you’ve lost your left arm.

You forget it’s not there, because it always has been.

And then you go to use it, and realize…

“I don’t have my left arm. WHAT? I DON’T have MY LEFT ARM?”

I’ve been there.

I spent months working on a project.

It was a project about an online tool which I wanted to keep secret.

I thought it was such a good idea.

The Do Not Call Registry: Cell phones and home phone

We’ve all had them, the calls that come just as you’re sitting down for dinner. On the other end of the phone is some telemarketer trying to sell you something or solicit donations, or even worse, it’s one of those automated calls that are computer generated which are incredibly annoying. Over the past couple years we’ve heard of the “Do Not Call Registry”; however, many consumers are not quite sure what it is and what is required to register a phone number to it.

The National Do Not Call Registry is exactly that. It is a registry established by the federal government in which citizens register their home number where telemarketers are to refrain from calling your number. If they violate this the consumer can file a complaint on the National Do Not Call Registry website. Registering your home number, will stop most, but not all telemarketing calls.

For those interested in having their number included in the registry, the process is fairly simple. You can register online at www.donotcall.gov or phone their toll free line at 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1-866-290-4236). If you choose to phone, you must place that call from the number you want to register. Registration is free.  For more information about the service, visit www.ftc.gov/donotcall.

There have been rumors circulating the internet, mostly from forwarded e-mails dating back to 2004 that cell phones need to be registered as well. Although the do not call registry will accept cell phone numbers, it is not necessary to do so.  The idea that your cell phone would become vulnerable to telemarketers came about several years ago when a plan for the establishment of a wireless 411 directory was announced. This directory was never established, and at this time there have been no propositions to move forward with it.

Erasing Your Phone Remotely

Uh oh.  You’ve lost your cell phone or else your cell phone has been stolen.  It’s a hassle and it will cost you but the phone itself can be replaced.  While there’s no need to cry over spilled milk, there is good reason to worry about someone finding your cell phone and using your personal information to steal your identity or commit fraud in your name.  Photos, e-mails and more in the wrong hands could lead to humiliation or even blackmail.

Today’s phones offer so many options for storing and sending information that losing your phone could put you or your company at risk.  Have you ever stored a company document, debit and credit card passwords or online banking passwords on your phone?

The steps you’ll need to follow to remotely erase your cell phone information will vary depending on your phone but just about every cell phone has some option for remotely killing your cell phone memory. Here are some examples. Continue reading Erasing Your Phone Remotely
