Welcome to the fascinating world of IT fairy tales! Today, on the occasion of “Tell a Fairy Tale Day”, we dive into the rich tradition of storytelling and discover how fairy tales not only inspire our imagination, but also play a role in the IT world. The “Tell a Fairy Tale Day” was created to celebrate the art of storytelling and promote the joy of storytelling and listening.

But why is this day also important for IT?


Why “Tell-a-Fairy-Tale Day” is Relevant in IT

Stories play an important role in the IT world, whether in the form of myths, legends or modern anecdotes. These stories are passed on to impart knowledge, share experiences and often also to explain complex concepts in an understandable way. Fairy tales serve as a tool to illustrate technical concepts, overcome challenges and develop creative solutions. They enable us to immerse ourselves in foreign worlds, understand complex problems and be inspired.


IT Fairy Tale Hour

We have already clarified some well-known myths in our “IT Fairy Tale Hour” series. One of them is the disastrous emptying of the recycle bin. It’s a scenario that many of us are familiar with: When quickly emptying the recycle bin, an important file has been accidentally deleted. But is it really lost forever? Not necessarily! With special tools such as Recuva or DiskDrill, deleted files can be recovered under certain circumstances. So, before you empty the recycle bin, take a second look at the files inside!

There is also myth no. 2; shutting down the computer vs. simply switching it off. The advice to always shut down the computer properly is widespread. However, modern systems can usually cope with abrupt shutdowns. Shutting down is still preferable as it minimizes the risk of data loss and corrupted files. So take the time for an orderly shutdown – your system will thank you for it!


New IT Fairy Tales

More megapixels always means better photos: Many people believe that a camera with more megapixels automatically takes better photos. This myth is based on the assumption that a higher megapixel count means higher image quality. In reality, however, the quality of a photo depends on many factors, including sensor size, lens quality and image processing technology. A camera with a higher megapixel count may capture more detail, but if the other components are not high quality, this can lead to image noise, poorer low-light performance and unnatural-looking images.

Macs are immune to viruses and malware: A common myth is that Mac computers are immune to viruses and malware. This belief is based on the assumption that Macs are not attacked as often as Windows PCs due to their smaller market share. While it is true that Macs are less often the target of attacks, they are by no means immune to viruses and malware. With the growing popularity of Macs, they are also increasingly becoming a target for malware developers. Mac users should therefore continue to take security measures such as anti-virus software and regular software updates to protect their systems.


With these two new IT tales, we continue our journey through the world of IT stories. May they inspire you, challenge you and remind you that behind every technical problem lies a story full of possibilities and adventure!
