App Reviewamendation: Safe In Cloud

This was originally going to be a review, but it ended up sounding like a recommendation. So. There’s that. Like the title? No? Damn. …anyways, back in June of this year I wrote about password security, and how one might protect oneself from account compromises. Today, I’ve edited that post to include another great app for Android that helps further that cause, and it goes by the name Safe In Cloud. Do note however, that this app can be used for storing much more than passwords. You can store information about your car like what size tires it uses,...

Amazon is Awesome

Posted by on 3:12 am in Everything Else | 3 comments

OK. Amazon? You rock. You rock hard. Let me start off by saying that before today, Amazon was already pretty awesome. Before I continue, I just want to mention the announcement that Jeff Bezos posted on Amazon’s homepage last month, where he stated that Amazon has the highest customer satisfaction rate ever attained by a retailer: “Amazon has been rated #1 in the National Retail Federation Customers’ Choice Awards, has been awarded the top spot in the MSN Money Customer Service Hall of Fame three years in a row, and is a JD Power and Associates 2012...

Google Wallet Now Supports Any Credit or Debit Card

Finally, Google Wallet has mastered the art of walking. Let me start by saying that I first started using Google Wallet on my Galaxy Nexus as soon as it was available, and that the first free $10 you get for using the app for the first time is the only reason I even tried it out. But when I used it for the first time, man, I could see the future taking form–a world where we don’t need to carry around cards all the time just to make payments. Obviously, that won’t be tomorrow. But it’s getting closer. Unfortunately, there’s a...

Password Security: Protect Yourself from Account Compromises

Posted by on 5:26 am in How Tos, Top Posts | 1 comment

Using strong, unique passwords across each of your online accounts is important. Really important. But you should already know that; I mean, you wouldn’t use the same key that you use to unlock your car that you would to open the front-door to your home or office, would you? Can we agree that, that would be pretty stupid? Yeah? So then why would you use your e-mail password for your online bank account? Each and every day, hackers are constantly trying to find security vulnerabilities in websites that they can exploit in order to gain access to your account,...

Review: Google Music

Posted by on 10:11 pm in Reviews | 0 comments

After yesterday’s post I almost feel obliged to discuss Google Music. It’s one of the few areas where Google has tried to get involved and actually “got it right.” I mean, how many different products does Google try to get involved in, and end up poorly supporting or dropping altogether? Maybe they’re just fans of crowd-sourcing? Whatever the case may be, it seems that Google has narrowed it’s focus a little in order to try to deliver products that are a little more polished than they usually end up being. This time they got it...
