Remember your password with Password Memory

0t_KeynoteWe are all connected to the huge www. We have accounts on websites we can’t even remember! So, tell me, if you can’t remember the website, can you remember your account details? Well, let’s say you made the account with your desired username, but on every website you made a registration; was your favorite username was available? I’m sure not. And about the password, you might want to say “I will have the same password for all my online accounts”, but now you know very well that this is a complete stupid idea, because your accounts will become very insecure and extremely vulnerable. One “smart guy” can find out your password from one website, and after that, after you worked very hard to have all your life online, your accounts can get “burned” from the ground in just minutes with irreparable effects. To avoid any of the above disasters, try out Password Memory 5.

Many times I lost my account details, and I had to use the “reset password” function or I had accounts that I forgot even the username. So, let me tell you how I managed to keep all my accounts safe, with passwords like (723hjJdA”_sa!@@ paaKSd) that are impossible to remember. The main idea is simple. Password Memory + Dropbox = 100% security and you can rest assured. No matter what happens to your computer, your personal password data base is safe on Dropbox. And of course, if you want to access the database, you’ll need only a single master password.

Password Memory is a 5-Star application that can help you store all your private data in one secure database. All you have to do is to remember one master password. This makes things really easy. You don’t even have to visualize the password. You just right-click on the entry you want, and click Copy Username or Copy Password in the clipboard, and you can simply insert it in the website. In case of emergency, you have a button that will lock the database in an instance, and another one that can clear the computer’s clipboard memory, so you can be safe that your password was not copied in the clipboard.
The Password Memory it’s quite handy when it comes to security. Has a nice MS-Office 2007 look, and it’s very easy to use even for a very basic user. It would have been interesting to see this application on my phone too, but for now it is available only for PC.

Kindle Fire Lacks (even BASIC) Purchase Controls

Let’s face it, despite what Amazon has to say, the Kindle Fire really just isn’t kid friendly…

I bought my wife a Kindle Fire for Christmas. After a couple of days hesitation with the device, she really got into it, and now, really likes it. Small, easy to carry and for her AND the kids to use, it’s become a standard in her daily gadget line up. In fact, neither her nor the kids have it far from them during the day. Clearly, a sign of a good purchase and gift decision on my part.

However, the tablet, and subsequently Amazon’s ecosystem, have a major flaw in them; and it’s one that you won’t even bump into unless you either have kids that share your Fire or you lose/misplace the device – it has absolutely NO purchase controls.

If you order the device directly from Amazon, the device comes in a clearly MARKED box and comes preactivated with links directly to your credit card and your account. Anyone smart enough to intercept the shipment will have the ability to purchase away inside of Amazon’s online store, with YOU responsible for all of the purchases.

Strike one – Pre-activation

The device itself doesn’t have any method, or way of either excluding your purchasing credentials/credit card info or even password protecting all purchases with your Amazon.com site password. If you have the device, again, you have direct access to your account, and as long as you have money in your debit account, available credit on your card, etc., anyone possessing the device can make all the purchases they want.

Strike two – Have device, can purchase

When I confronted Amazon with this HUGE security (and frankly, clearly common sense) hole, they let me know that Amazon addressed this by putting a password on Wi-Fi access, so if you wanted to prevent purchases, you could password protect the device’s ability to get online.

This made me to a double take; and really ticked me off.

Strike three – Failure to address the specific issue: Purchase control

I think Amazon wants to differentiate themselves in the tablet market by giving their users the clear ability to purchase anything and everything they would want or need on the Kindle Fire without having to enter a password. Really..?! Am I the only one who sees this huge security hole? I give them points for wanting this to be easy, but talk about your advanced identity theft tools..! Apparently, all I need to steal someone’s credit is not their credit card number, their social security number or any of their personal, private information. All I really need is their Kindle Fire.

Nice.

Let’s forget the real world scenario that I bumped into with my 4 year old ordering an entire season’s worth of Olivia, and that I just want to gate purchases on the device with the linked account’s Amazon password (which you see on every Apple iDevice in town, including the iPad). According to Amazon, this is unreasonable. It’s also something they are NOT going to address.

They’ve given users the ability to limit the use of Wi-Fi instead. You need Wi-Fi to make purchases. With Wi-Fi password protected, you can’t purchase new content. That’s true; but it also fails to address the problem. The Kindle Fire is a content streaming device.

Amazon Prime’s streaming service requires an internet connection. The Fire is a Wi-Fi only device, and in order to view/stream content that I’ve already purchased, Wi-Fi must be on. Effectively want Amazon is telling me is that I have to unlock Wi-Fi every time my child wants to view content that’s already been purchased…and once they are streaming content, I have to watch them watch it so that they don’t go looking for something else.

But, as I said, let’s forget this and the fact that its backwards.

The unlocked device represents a huge security hole. Amazon needs to address this with a software update and needs to require the account holder’s Amazon password for all purchases and not for Wi-Fi access. Until it does, Kindle Fire, and really ALL Kindle owners, need to be careful about where they store their Kindle, who has access to the device, and who is using it. You could find yourself the recipient of a HUGE content bill if your kids, or worse, a thief, happen to get a hold of your device and make unauthorized purchases.

NOTHING you can do, either on the web site or on the device, aside from crippling it, can prevent unauthorized purchases; and this is clearly documented by a number of different complaints and posts in Amazon’s own forums.

TeamViewer the popular sharing tool for technical and non-technical alike

Team Viewer is an excellent screen-sharing and file-transfer application that is popular amongst the technical and non-technical alike.

This is due to the varied uses that are available through Team Viewer, with the apparatuses most popular devices being the remote troubleshooting of IT problems, the ability to manage servers in remote data centers or the allowance to let users connect to their desktop PCs when they’re away from the computer.

The installation process with Team Viewer is even impressive and even allows you to toggle administration rights. Once loaded Team Viewer gives each of its users the exact tools they need when they are looking to share screens securely, send files with no hassle and switch the user who has complete control.

This can occur because when you log in you’re provided with an access code and a password, which you can share, allowing your computer to be controlled to the level you have set it to. The Team Viewer even remembers the computers that you have connected to, which allows you to reconnect to previous PCs quickly and with no bother.

TeamViewer is free for personal use, easy to use, the integrated contact list allows you to support family and friends instantly, features extensive security mode and remote access. But the support and documentation is poor and it can be very expensive to use it professionally.

TeamViewer makes screen and file sharing simple and fluid as well as unobtrusive and is a worthy addition to any office or home for both professional and casual users.

Mozilla continues their fast release cycle with Firefox 7

Six weeks after the release of Firefox 6, Mozilla officially released the new next version for Firefox. The seventh cycle of development confirms the rapid release schedule adopted by Mozilla this year. While there are rumors regarding the idea of shortening this cycle to only five weeks, these won’t happen too soon.

Similar to its previous version, Firefox  7 brings few notable improvements and features. The most important improvement is the memory usage optimization. It is said that Firefox 7 has reduced its memory usage by 20% and even 50% in special cases. This comes as a positive effect for the startup and page loading times, which suffered a lot in previous version.

Mozilla has also tweaked the Javascript module in order to free up memory no longer in use. In this way, they have addressed one of the oldest issues present in previous Firefox versions. No you can let the browser run as much as you want without noticing any expense in system resources. For example is enough to close unused tabs in order to free up memory, and this without the need to restart the browser.

Other subtle improvements have been done to the Firefox Sync component which now initializes the sync process for password and bookmark changes more frequently as they are modified or added. Firefox 7 also adds support for CSS3 Text Overflow method and a new measurement tool that allows web developers to identify performance improvements or flaws on their website.

Azure is the new graphical component introduced in Firefox 7 in order to improve the rendering process of Canvas present in the new HTML 5 standard. In this way Mozilla is trying to prepare its path for future worldwide changes in the HTML standard. A subtle but good change has been  applied to the address bar. Now the main domain from a web address is even more highlighted compared to the subdomain component and the “http://” prefix is not visible anymore.

Until the next new version of Mozilla’s Firefox:
