The news that “123456” has replaced “Password” as the worst password of 2013, (covered here by Ina Fried) could be taken as a positive.

Here’s a familiar scenario: I hear about a great website/service that interests me.  It’s free, but I have to create an account to use the service. I’m not sure I’m going to keep using the service, so I hesitate to set up an account. Then I notice that I can login using my LinkedIn profile, […]

xkcd’s 1200th cartoon, published last week, was another brilliantly satirical look on the way most of us approach security on our laptop: It reminded me of Mel Gibson’s immortal line in the film, Braveheart: “They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom.” Freedom was the most important thing to the Scots, […]
