Is Lastpass as good as they make it sound? (Download Squad)

Aug 23rd 2008 9:20AM OK Joe,
I guess I'm willing to give it a fair try, but only with nonessential passwords for now: not, for example, with passwords for online banking. You know, if I was a fraudster wanting to steal passwords, this would be exactly the kind of service I would setup to collect my data (and then, after harvesting many thousands of them, I would suddenly let it go bust). In other words, how should I know I can really trust the people behind something like this? I don't think I'm paranoid, but I do want to be careful.

Is Lastpass as good as they make it sound? (Download Squad)

Aug 23rd 2008 5:32AM Just one simple thing. Encrypted or not, I would NEVER store all my passwords on some faraway server up high in the clouds. What if that server goes down? Or what if some Chinese hacker is attracted by this passwords-honeypot and manages to crack even a small part of it? To me, this is like saving your money in a cookie jar on a public park bench. No, thanks!

DLS Poll: What do you think of Vista SP1 so far? (Download Squad)

Mar 25th 2008 9:21AM For most people worldwide, SP1 is not available yet. Really! The only languages currently supported are English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish. See the information, dated March 18th, on the Microsoft SP1 download page: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=B0C7136D-5EBB-413B-89C9-CB3D06D12674&displaylang=en

DLS Poll: What do you think of Vista SP1 so far? (Download Squad)

Mar 21st 2008 9:19PM Due to Microsoft's stupid issuing policies, I cannot try out SP1 yet, as much as I would like to. Has anyone of you, the privileged minority of Vista users in English-speaking countries, ever thought about the frequent unfair discrimination of all other users in the rest of the world? I happen to live in the Netherlands, and for my Dutch-language version of Vista, SP1 is simply not available yet and it's not expected to arrive within a few weeks, either. Now if you say I'm just showing envy, you may be right...
