Recently, Recently, the car has been owned by a Spanish collector, the car website Barchetta said.

As prices continue to rise, speculators ahve been voicing concern and prompting fears of a bubble in the market.

“Nothing goes up like that in the mid-term,” HAGI founder Dietrich Hatlapa said in an interview. “Price rises of 55 percent aren’t sustainable in any market. We’re not saying the market is going to collapse. It will probably average out over time.”

Hatlapa told Bloomberg that prices of the rarest Ferraris have risen at an average annual rate of 15 percent for more than 30 years.

Others are not worried, at least when it comes to 250 GTO’s.

“Today the GTO is considered the top car to own,” the California-based dealer Don Williams of Blackhawk Collection said in an interview with Bloomberg. “It’s like the Mona Lisa. It has a mystique. If you have a GTO, you have a great collection.”

Ferrari only made 39 GTO 250 cars, which are now the most expensive and increasingly sought after.

The latest record-breaking GTO, chassis number 5111, has a distinguished competition history, which might have contributed to the subsequent surge in price. It won the 1963 Tour de France road race with the French driver Jean Guichet at the wheel.

Other GTO owners, such as Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, have recently received offers between $40 million and $50 million from prospective purchasers, dealers told Bloomberg.

Tech Q&A: MacBook Air or MacBook Pro – Which is better for an undergraduate student?

Question from Peter Gboluwaga.:  Hi Simmy. I am an undergraduate student of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger state right here in Nigeria, Am about to get a new laptop for myself because i feel its needed as an Electrical Engineering student.

Price is an issue, but it’s important to me is to get the best when it comes to best model of computer system.

I know they are more expensive than Windows laptops, my friends have really convinced me that if i wanna buy a laptop then it must MacBook. That’s fine with me, but am confused about which model to get.

My choice is basically between a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro. Which do you think would be better for ME?

Simmyideas’s answer:  Peter, both of those machines are great, and plenty powerful enough to serve your you very well. That being said, I would recommend that you go with the MacBook Pro, simply because it is a more durable machine.

The typical university environment can be hard on a laptop, and the MacBook Pro will be better able to withstand drops and other types of rough handling.

The MacBook Air is a bit lighter than the Pro, which is always a welcome benefit. But in my opinion, the durability factor trumps the lighter weight in this case.

Another advantage of the MacBook Pro is there are several extra I/O ports available around the edge of the case, including both HDMI and Thunderbolt connections.

I hope this helps Peter. Good luck!

Tech Q&A: What is Telepresence?

Telepresence is the use of digital video and networking technology to enable remote individuals to interact as if they were in the same room. The main component of telepresence is that the users are stimulated in such a way that the feel as though they are a part of the remote location. For instance, in corporate settings, meetings between employees who are located in other towns or cities can be conducted using microphones, video cameras and large video screens.

History of telepresence

According to scientist Marvin Minsky, the concept of telepresence originated in a 1942 short story by science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein. Today, telepresence technology has advanced to incorporate autonomous robots, holograms, virtual reality, and mechanical interfaces that can create the physical, animated likeness of a remote user’s moving hands.

Tech Q&A: What is waterfall model?

The waterfall model is a series of steps that can be used as design guidelines in the software development process. It conceptualizes the steps as beginning at the top level and “flowing down” to lower levels as progress is made. Like a waterfall, progress can only flow in one direction, and the process aims to eliminate situations where retroactive changes must be made. The waterfall model has its origins in physical engineering fields like construction, in which making changes to work that has already been completed can be costly or impossible.

Waterfall model steps

  1. Define and document all project requirements;
  2. Design the software architecture;
  3. Implement the design as code;
  4. Verify that the software functions as designed;
  5. Maintain the finished product.

Tech Q&A: How to recover accidentally deleted files from a USB flash drive?

Question from Otomiewo O.: Simmy, I need help big time my friend. I accidentally deleted all the files from my USB pen drive and I REALLY need to get them back. I checked the Recycle Bin and they aren’t in there. Is there anything I can do to get them back?

Simmyideas’s answer: There’s a good chance that you’ll be able to recover at least some of your lost files Otomiewo, and maybe even all of them if luck is on your side. Here’s what you need to do: 

1 – First of all, STOP USING THE PEN DRIVE IMMEDIATELY. I said this because it’s absolutely critical to the success of your recovery attempt.

2 – Download and use this fantastic free program called Recuva to recover the files you accidentally deleted from your USB pen drive.

Otomiewo, if nothing else was written to the pen drive after the files were deleted, Recuva should be able to restore every one of the “lost” files. And by the way, this awesome program can retrieve accidentally deleted files from your hard drive and your camera’s flash memory card too.

Q&A: How to detect if my Computer is Infected with Virus

Question from Saliu S.:  I keep reading about all the computer viruses going around and how they can cause you a bunch of problems.

How can I find out if my computer is infected?

Simmyideas’s answer:  That’s a great question Saliu.

The short answer to your question is by scanning your system with a good anti-virus program. I use and recommend the free version of Avast, but there is a handful of other good programs that I trust as well.

The hackers are creating more sophisticated viruses and trojans all the time, and most of them cannot be detected simply by constantly looking for strange behaviors in your PC. The only way to know for sure whether your PC has a virus or not is to run a virus scan with a trusted anti-virus program.

That being said, there are other forms of malware in addition to viruses and trojans that cause problems with your system that are easy to recognize. In fact, you can be virtually certain that your PC is infected with one or more pieces of malware if it exhibits one or more of the following symptoms:

1 – Your computer is slow to shut down or boot up into Windows.

2 – It won’t shut down at all without pressing and holding the power button.

3 – You have all kinds of pop-ups and browser windows opening all by themselves at random times.

4 – You notice that your web browser has one or more toolbars that you don’t remember installing.

5 – Your web browser’s default search provider and/or start page have changed all on their own.

6 – You’re unable to load certain websites and/or your browser is re-directed to websites that you have no desire to visit.

7 – You get a warning that you need to update your antivirus software, but it comes from a program that you never installed on your PC.

8 – You receive a notice that Microsoft or some other “security” company has detected malware on your computer and you need to call them or visit their website and pay them to remove it for you. This notice itself is malware.

9 – Your computer hangs up and becomes unresponsive at random times.

10 – Programs run so slowly that you dread using your computer.

11 – The system operates so erratically that you have trouble typing or using the mouse.

12 – Your computer’s fans run constantly at breakneck speed (you can actually hear the fans running faster than they should).

If your computer exhibits any of the symptoms mentioned above, it’s probably infected with some combination of viruses, trojans, adware, spyware and unwanted toolbars. And unfortunately, there’s a good chance that it’s infected with most or all of them.

If you suspect that your PC is infected, I recommend taking one of these courses of action:

1 – Perform a System Restore using a Restore Point that was created at a time when you are sure that your computer was malware-free. Just be aware that this can be a hit or miss proposition since your PC could have been infected with undetected malware long before you noticed any symptoms.

2 – Restore your system’s software configuration back to it’s factory state, then re-install all Windows updates and your programs.

Note: This will definitely wipe out any malware on the system, but you should only do this if you have all of your user-created data files backed up and stored in a safe place.

3 – This is likely to be the most practical way to handle your PC’s malware infections.

That’s all there is to it Saliu. Just remember that while other forms of malware typically cause issues that are easy to detect while you’re using your PC, many viruses and trojans do not. That’s why I recommend running an updated anti-virus program at all times.
