1Password’s New Individual Plan

August 22, 2016

Stop denying it already! You need a password manager. Aren’t you sick and tired of trying to remember which password you used on this or that service?!

NO!

Please tell me you’re not using the same password across the internet!? That’s just asking for trouble!

I have been a very happy 1Password user for years. Their service has gotten better with age. I highly recommend checking out their new subscription service which is super affordable and an easy way to get started down the path of peace of mind when it comes to managing your passwords.

Elon Musk at Code Conference 2016

June 6, 2016

Watched this over the weekend. I could listen to Elon Musk talk all day even though I don’t understand half of what he’s talking about. ?

It’s pretty cool to think that we could be sending humans to Mars within the next 10 years.

Aware App

April 14, 2016

Too many apps these days try to get overly complicated and do 50,000 different things.

Not Aware.

This menubar app is so beautifully simple.

All it does is one thing:

Aware tells you how long you’ve been using your computer in hours and minutes. It knows this because it detects the movements of your mouse and the keystrokes on your keyboard.

It has absolutely made me more aware of how long I’ve been sitting at my computer. I would have paid $4.99 for this … easy. Instead, it’s free.

More Mac App Store Certificate Problems

February 19, 2016

I knew there was something fishy going on with the Mac App Store this week.

See this from Daring Fireball:

Lost amid the FBI/iPhone encryption hubbub was another bad week for the Mac App Store — apps just stopped launching, with the only solution being to delete the app(s) and re-install from the store. Michael Tsai (as usual) compiled a thorough roundup of information and commentary.

I can honestly say that I’m done buying apps through the Mac App Store. It is maddening to launch an app and have to type my Apple password in over and over again or have to delete/reinstall the app altogether just to get it to work again.

Oh, and #FirstWorldProblems.
