3 Reasons DisplayPort Is The Future

3 Reasons DisplayPort Is The Future

If you’re anything like me, you’re sick of having to unscrew/re-screw VGA and DVI cables every time you move your monitor, or maybe you’re fed up with having to use a different cable for every single monitor you use in a multi-monitor setup. DisplayPort seems to be the answer to both these problems and more.

DisplayPort is a cable that was standardized by VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) in May of 2006. The port looks like an HDMI port. The two cables share more than similar ports, though; they both do nearly the same thing. Both transfer video and audio singles with a single cable and both are poised as potential replacements for the aging DVI and VGA cables of yesteryear. Let’s explore why DisplayPort is ready to become the next big cable.

  • Speed. DisplayPort is seriously fast. The current revision (1.2) can transfer information to your screen at a blazing 2.1 gigabytes per second. To put that in perspective, that’s enough speed to output to four 2560 x 1600 monitors. At once. That’s a huge amount of data to put through a single cable at once, and DisplayPort pulls it off with ease. This speed can be carried longer distances than conventional cables as well. DisplayPort pushes content at the speeds I mentioned before for 2 meters and can carry the signal to a 1080p monitor for more than 15 meters. Not only can it send signals fast, but it can also do it to multiple monitors and do it for huge lengths.
  • Compatible. DisplayPort can directly transmit DVI and HDMI signals without the use of an adapter. It can also be converted VGA signals with an active adapter. This is essential for people to begin using it, as it allows them to buy a monitor without

The original producers of cell phones couldn’t have dreamed that their SMS services would be used by billions of teenagers texting the other huge amounts of times 30 days. The original hosted VoIP telephony pioneers didn’t anticipate their advances would enable increasingly decentralized workforces and business structures that are completely and quickly turning classical “office” right into a “cloud”.

How to Easily Apply the NLP in Your Everyday Life

Motivational and self-help ideas are not new concepts. Many people use different ways to motivate themselves throughout the day. Those who have more problems and issues in their lives read countless self-help books and watch numerous self-help videos. Some people even do regular motivational exercises in order to help improve the quality of their everyday life.

One approach being used in psychotherapy is the NLP or neuro-linguistic programming. Among the concepts that the NLP uses as a basis, is that a person’s thoughts, perception, and behavior have great effects on the quality of their lives. It presupposes that a person can greatly improve his or her success in whatever aspect of his or her life by modeling or patterning the thoughts, perception, and behavior, of a highly successful and effective person. The NLP has been used to model some highly successful people and their techniques, among them: Walt Disney, for phenomenal creativity; Tiger Woods, for unshakeable attention; Milton Erickson, for irresistible verbal and body language of influence; Warren Buffet, for vast wealth creation; Aristotle, for methodology for building scientific models; Mahatma Gandhi, for visionary leadership; and Mozart, for extraordinary musical intuition.

Many self-help “experts” have likewise used it and incorporated it into their lives. Among these people are Jack Canfield, author of the Chicken Soup series; Tony Robbins, the renowned guru of self-help; and Wayne Dyer, a model for hundreds of thousands of people when it comes to self-actualization and personal success.

Although many of the concepts of the NLP that one would see in many reading materials are confusing and complicated, there are also many simplistic …

Forter: Multiple files of Stolen Personal Data Have led to Relentless Online Fraud Attacks

Forter: Multiple files of Stolen Personal Data Have led to Relentless Online Fraud Attacks

We live in an era of cybercrime where it is not uncommon to read headlines of data breaches and other cases of persistent fraud attempts. According to the 2019 sixth annual Fraud Attack Index by Forter Inc, fraud levels went up in 2018 in every online merchant category they scrutinized.

The weight of the matter

Forter reported increased fraud levels in 2018 in all the online merchant categories it tracked. The findings were as follows.

•    Food-and-beverage merchants 79%

•    Electronics at 73%;

•    Digital goods, 66%;

•    Apparel and accessories, 47%;

•    Jewelry, 19%;

•    Luxury, 19%;

•    Travel, 19%;

According to Michael Reitbalt, Founder and CEO of Forter, though some thought luxury or electronic merchants were more vulnerable to fraud due to the larger return from a single fraudulent transaction, the food-and-beverage sector has turned out to be the best testing zone for tricksters to see if they can purchase goods with stolen IDs. Once successful purchase means the trick is worth trying for a top dollar order elsewhere.”

In fact, the CEO suspects that some cybercriminals are hoarding stolen customer information for later breaches or sale in black markets.

“What’s more, web-based food and beverage retailers are slow to the game of online transactions compared to other merchants in other sectors, and as a result, haven’t built up dependable fraud defenses making them the criminals favorite,” Reitblat says.

How is your business most likely to get attacked?

The study also focused on the methods criminals used and found an increase in each. The findings were as shown below;

•    Number one was policy abuse which recorded a 170% growth rate since the Q4 of 2017.

•    Number two; returns abuse, 90%

•    Account takeover, 45%;

•    Fraud rings, 26%;

•    Instrument manipulation, 13%.

Meanwhile; there’s the question …
