    Blog Post: USB chargers then and now: Type-C meets energy efficiency standards
    Published. September 23, 2016

    While planning to write this post, I typed “type-C” into Google Trends. Interest in the term has been rising since 2015 shown in Figure 1. Figure 1. Interest over time on Google Trends (Keywords: type-C) USB Type-C devices are getting more and more popular in the real world as well, with many prevalent cell phones and tablets adopting USB Type-C. I expect products with USB Type-C to increase rapidly in the coming years. Why 15 Watts (5V3A)? Besides having a flippable plug that works regardless...

    Securing Invisible Things … or “Why Denial Works!”
    Published. February 28, 2013

    The opening keynote of the Embedded World conference in Germany left me with chills. No, it was not a grand theatrical performance letting me crave for more. It simply scared the bejevies out of me with respect to the safety and security of embedded devices, some of which I use each day. Luckily -- as in so many other areas of life -- the cure simply lies in proper prevention before bad things happen. And guess what, tools like our System Development Suite may be central to the answer! Stuart McClure,...

Not only did he delete it, but he did it in such a strange way I have no idea what he could have done. She was not too happy since all of her recent school work was on the memory stick. My best guess is that he deleted it by mistake, recognized what he had done, went into the recycle bin, but instead of restoring the files, tried to manually copy the files back to the stick...
