computer or phone, just deleting your data doesn't do it. >> the truth usually is that it's not wiped. >> reporter: it's not? >> it's not. >> reporter: to prove it the recovery experts had me delete from my computers personal photos, mock financial information, and passwords. i have two computers here. a windows and a mac. i want to get rid of all my personal information. i'm going to delete it on the windows base computer and on the mac i have it on an external hard drive. now i'm going to wipe it. we then sent them off to the lab to look at this gap in security, kroll bought 100 used pc's and phones online. nearly half still contained personal information even though many of the previous owners thought they erased it. it's not as simple as hitting delete. >> it's like when you take the

all of your datand provides a certificate with proof. the other is to get physical. taking a hammer or drill to the memory chips inside your computer. but don't go easy. >> there's data stored on both sides. so you want to make sure you drill all the way through it or crush it all the way with a vice or a hammer. >> reporter: the whole thing must be destroyed? >> yes. the whole thing must be destroyed. >> that was tom costello reporting. you may have seen recycling bins for cell phones given away to people in need. just like you would check he pocket before you give a coat to charity, make sure you deleted everything. >> i could see erica wielding one of those sledge hammers. >> i'd have a great time. i've got a drill at home. i could just do that to. yesterday was in the 70s. big change this morning. >> 72 yesterday and today we won't get out of the 50s which is more seasonable for this time of year. let's get things started with a
another lovely look at lower manhattan and i believe that's the -- is that the manhattan bridge we've got there? yeah. there we go. my monitor is looking smurfy. that's funny. it is 39 and sunny right now. so that sunshine is a little bit deceiving. let's look at the weather headlines. we'll see increasing cloud cover later on today. an easterly wind is going to keep us cooler. it's going to bring in that ocean influence that builds the deck late today. seasonal on sunday, but as i just mentioned that means it's going to be chillier than what we've become accustomed to. same temperature in north port. it's also 40 degrees in north babylon. 37 in newburgh. danbury 32. when you factor in the wind which is light right now. but at these temperatures, even a bit of wind, you feel the windchill. it feels like 29 in danbury and
by this time in late march we want the mild weather. but it is kind of nice to get a break from that humidity that we had yesterday, right? storm tracker showing the reason. the cold front has departed and area of high pressure is drifting in moving over the new england states. and that counterclockwise or clockwise flow, i should say, that clockwise flow around that area of high pressure brings in clouds from the east. it also brings in that cold ocean influence because temperatures are still in the 40ust s over the ocean. so we get a little bit of that ocean influence keeping our temperatures down. overnight tonight make sure to bundle up. it's been a little while since we've had temperatures this consistently chilly. tomorrow sun to cloud cover still cool for this time of year -- sorry. it's not cool for this time of year. it's cooler than what we've become accustomed to with a high of 56. today, 54 as i mentioned. those clouds arriving late. it will be breezy from time to time.
to 15 mile-an-hour range this afternoon. then overnight tonight, patchy clouds, a low of 40 degrees. can't rule out a little bit of fog as well. pretty much the same kind of weather we had on thursday of last week. that's what we're going to see for the day today. here's a look at the seven-day forecast. on easter sunday, a high of 56 degrees. on monday, we're back to 60 with the on and off rain and even thunderstorms possible back down in the 50s on tuesday. ups and downs continue. so you want to always stay up-to-date with your forecast, use the news 4 new york app to do that. select the weather tab. see the latest forecasts, interact iradar, and how to submit your own weather video. the app is available in the app store right now. back over to you. >> thank you. 8:46. it's time for sports. >> here's john chandler. >> good morning, everybody. yes the mets are on the cover of "sports illustrated" baseball preview. cleveland in the world series? whoops.
also si cover boys and the mets are well aware of how that turned out. but if that can't get you to forget the si jinx, maybe noah syndergaard can help. again hitting 101 miles per hour. six innings, syndergaard struck out nine, walked none, allowed two runs on five hits. 19 strikeouts, just 1 walk this spring. mets trailed 5-4 in the ninth. kevin the mets and cards finished tied 5-5. the yankees' fifth spot in the starting rotation is up for grabs. neither sabathia and nova can get a grip be on it. yesterday nova admitted he put himself in a bad position here. working with the 5-1 lead when things fell apart. caleb joseph sends it out by the palm strees in left. nova allowed two homers and
j.j. hardy also driving one deep and gone to left. clearly the wind was blowing out but still. tied at eight after nine, they played a tenth inning. orioles rallied to win this on a bases loaded single. it's a walkoff. 11-10 spring training win for the orioles over the yankees. as the nhl barrels towards the playoffs, the playoff in the east is chaos. eight teams separated by seven points or less. and hey, the devils are gaining. stumbling. losses in 6 of 8 coming in make it 7 of 9 after a disaster of a third period. midway through, thomas greiss makes a blocker save but gives up a juicy rebound. look at tyler johnson there to pound it home. jason garrison would put it out of reach 20 seconds later. and the islanders fall to the
devils have stormedk to the playoff picture. at it again blanking the caps in regulation. after 159 minutes and 34 seconds of shutout hockey, the streak ends in overtime. john carlson burying the winner. the caps' next point will clinc the president's trophy. this is a hard earned point for the devils. they are five points back of the last playoff spot. knicks and nets both had the night off. both are at home tonight. the knicks host lebron james and the cavaliers at the garden. nets take on the pacers at barclays. ncaa tournament continues tonight with the elite eight action getting under way. for today in new york, i'm john chandler. all right. listen to this. redbox is set to watch a streaming service. variety magazine says the new redbox digital will allow you to rent tv episodes and movies or buy the digital copies. they shut down its first
it was only up for about 18 months. they're making a second go of it. still ahead this saturday morning, what would you do if you caught a burglar in your home? a woman fought back. >> it's an impressive story. and of course it is time to ask produce pete. hey, good morning. the first thing that pops out of the ground in the springtime is asparagus. coming up next, all you want to know about asparagus.
all across america families are coming back to time warner cable for a whole new experience. pwe came back for internet speeds so fast even the kids are impressed. oh she's impressed. we're catching up on movies and shows on demand just as fast as we can watch them. twc's home wifi is so strong we can use all our devices at the same time. come back today. you'll get 100 meg internet, tv, phone and more for $89.99 a month. and now, get a $300 reward card.
a lot of people love asparagus. >> today getting the answers to all of your asparagus related questions on this week's edition of ask produce pete. >> okay. it's time to ask produce pete and today he's talking asparagus asparagus. is this a lily? >> it's in the lily family. >> i remember what you teach me. yeah. >> actually, i'm hoping by the end of may i'm going to get out to donaldson's farm again. they have their jersey ones coming up. i want to show people how they grow. it's unbelievable. the most asked question i get about asparagus, how come they're so expensive. they're labor intensive. once they're planted, it takes about three y rs for them. then they keep coming. yeah. about three years. then they come every year. >> and they come back. >> one thing, though, that's impressive is they come out of
bout six inches every day. so they grow really quick. my friend joey said to me the other day, he went to an asparagus farm we picked them in the morning and that afternoon they were growing again. >> that's cool. >> the reason why white asparagus are really very expensive is what they do with white asparagus, they cut the -- not cut it, but once it comes out of the ground, then they burrow down about nine inches and cut it off. then they put that and put it in a dark box. that's why they're white. once the sunlight hits them, they turn green. and they make them more tender. >> really? >> if you think about it, this comes out of the ground this much, then burro down, then cut them. it's hard enough for these when these come out of the ground that you got to bend over and cut every one by hand. >> individually. oh, yeah.
so this time of year, we see aspur gus in the springtime. we see it this time of year and easter always seems like the -- which easter will be tomorrow so easter seems like that's the time of year for the asparagus. you'll see price range of asparagus difference. people said last easter they were this price and the easter before. what happens with asparagus is east ser about a month apart. it could be march, it could be april. when it's in march you usually haeve t mexican asparagus out and the california start. more supply, prices down. as the season go on, you only have california. less supply, the price goes up. so you'll see them at a reasonable -- you'll never see them -- sorry betty, she doesn't like me to say cheap. >> inexpensive, how about that? >> but they'll be out there. when buying asparagus, years ago when you bought it they were
green the rest of the way. well, they grow more green now. they grow the ones that are longer that are more green and that you can use the whole asparagus. mom used to do this. use. she never threw this away. she'd make soup, anything out of it. but mom never threw anything away. so that's really when you want tender asparagus, that's the tender part where it breaks. and once you get the asparagus home, you want to treat them like a lily. treat them like a flower. i want you to put them -- stick them in a container of water like stand them up like this. you treat them like a flower. the top of the asparagus. you never want to get them wet. when you go to the store to buy asparagus, you want to treat it the same way as a flower. give it a little smell. if it smells funky, you don't want the asparagus. you want to make sure the top is
you want this purple in color in the asparagus and you want all the tips to be nice and feathery. you don't want them to be wide open or anything. >> got it. >> that's the easy way to hold them. you bring them in. but produce is always meant to be eaten, not stored. so what you want to do is bring them home and eat them. happy easter to all my family and friends and happy easter to you, patricia. >> thank you, peter. they are available. >> thank you. >> happy easter, pete, and all of you. send your questions to produce peet. and there's a lot more on today in new york. >> including our top story. >> reporter: subway slashing. a 19-year-old is slashed in front of this subway stop.

but temperatures aren't going to rise very quickly this afternoon. and it's because of an east wind that's going to establish. we're also going to see that wind bringing in some more cloud cover. that ocean influence. so 48 degrees at noon and 6:00 p.m., 52 degrees with more clouds. right now it is 40 degrees in mill basen in middle village. 41 in city island. 39 in poughkeepsie and danbury. on storm tracker you can see we did have a bit of high cloud cover earlier in the morning up. because of the east wind i mentioned before. we'll talk more about the cooldown and also our next chance for rain coming up in your seven-day forecast. right now a man is recovering in the hospital after a group of men jumped him on the upper west side. >> police say he ran to the 96th street subway station for help and that somebody slashed him

east wind developing. it'll be seasonable on sunday as the easterly flow continues. right now in hampton bays it's 41 as well. and 42 in islip. it's 38 in sussex. and it's 40 in bridgewater. so temperatures are slowly creeping up a little bit because of that area of high pressure bringing us the sunshine. but the high pressure is centered over new england. that's a clockwise flow that brings in the east wind. and that east wind is going to keep things cooler. the ocean is still in the 40s. also it's going to bring in a little bit extra moip. remember what it was like on thursday when we had the low cloud cover develop and got misty at times? could see the same scenario play out to a lesser extent today. see t t flow become a bit more southerly. that's going to help prevent developing. but then late in the day we'll
ad once of the next storm system. seasonably chilly on sunday. and then on monday up to 60 degrees. rain and a thunderstorm possible, though, especially early in the day. we could have the rain and see the storms develop later. you'll see that on future tracker. the rain moving in by 5:00 a.m. the morning commute on monday, the rain starting to arrive. but then we see the band in the stronger colors here. the oranges and the yoel lows, that's an indication for the potential of heavier rain. we'll clear things out monday afternoon into the evening commute. but it does look like it's going to be an unsettled day. not for the weekend, though, thankfully. 54 is cool but at least it's dr a little bit breezy with the winds out of the east at 5 to 15 miles per hour. overnight tonight dropping down to 40 degrees. partly cloudy. winds becoming a little bit more southerly. east/southeast at 5 to 15. here's a look at the seven-day
