Daily Tech - Electronic Water Purifier

A water purifier, also known as a water filter, provides the kind of clean tasting and odor-free drinking water that a tap is unable to do on its own. The demand for purer water led to the explosion in the popularity of bottled drinking water in the 1990s, with sales of bottled water tripling in the U.S. between 1989 and 1999. However, the regular purchase of bottled water is an expensive proposition that can also have a deleterious effect on the environment due to all of the plastic bottles that circulate as a result. Thus, home water purifiers such as those produced by Brita, PUR, Whirlpool, General Electric, and Aquasana not only get rid of impurities from tap water that degrade its taste and have possible long-term health consequences, but they also save consumers a great deal of money on the purchase of bottled water.

There is a wide array of different home water purifying systems and this guide will identify each type, how it works, and how to purchase the right system based on home water purification needs.

Does WiFi affect Health?

Wireless Internet routers or Wi-Fi modems use dangerous electromagnetic radiation to send their signals to your computer through walls. If you have a wireless Internet router set up in your home or office (or WiMax, Blue Tooth, Air-Port Extreme, Air-Port Express, Netgear, D-Link, Belkin, Linksys and other wireless network devices) you are receiving massive EMF exposure, and living or working in a dangerous soup of radiation.

Those DSL routers and cable modems that make it so convenient to get online emit electromagnetic radiation in the low gigahertz frequency level—this level of radiation is considered by scientists and health experts as potentially dangerous. In fact, the typical home or office wireless networks transmit radio signals in the same general frequency range as the frequency that microwave ovens use to cook food.

Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality is a terrible, technical sounding phrase, and suffers for the lack of an easy definition. Here’s how we look at it: Telecom operators/ISPs are access services providers, and can control either how much you access, what you access, how fast you access and how much you pay to access content and services on the Internet.

It’s important for access to knowledge, services and free speech, as well as freedom and ease of doing business online, for this access to be neutral:
– All sites must be equally accessible
– The same access speed at the telco/ISP level for each (independent of telco selection)
– The same data cost for access to each site (per KB/MB).

As of April 2015, there were no laws governing net neutrality in India, which would require that all Internet users be treated equally, without discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication. There have already been a few violations of net neutrality principles by some Indian service providers.
The debate on network neutrality in India gathered public attention after Airtel, a mobile telephony service provider in India, announced in December 2014 to levy additional charges for making voice calls (VoIP) from its network using apps like WhatsApp, Skype, etc.

What is Host Process Windows Service (SvcHost.exe)

The Host Process feature is used a lot in Windows, especially apparent when using Task Manager to view running processes. Here we unravel the mystery of this elusive program. Many Windows users will have come across the Host Process in their time with the system. It appears many times in Task Manager and any attempt to find out more about it from within Windows draws a blank.

Norton will certainly block the SVCHOST.exe nasty. To make sure(For your Satisfaction) you can do some background check on the svchost.exe processes that are running in your computer. To do that you can goto the Task Manager --> goto processes (tab) --> click on show process from all users --> Now you can see the svchost.exe processes --> right click one by one and then select goto service(s) --> This will provide you the insight about that svchost.exe process --> You can see what services are running under the hood (check the Description) --> So by doing this you can make sure nothing malicious is running under the name of svchost.exe. Otherwise you can use the command tasklist /SVC in the command prompt to get the background info.
