Remembering Passwords

Remembering passwords is really difficult. No one has a different password for every site or machine they log into because no one can remember that many passwords easily. Is having the same password for every account good practise? We all know the answer to that question.

I have about five different passwords. I have a general password which I use for all the sites which aren’t very important and don’t store important details.

Icon Townsend

Craig Townsend is another young designer living in my local area. I found out about his recently set up studio in our local paper.

I hope that he gets plenty of work to keep him busy and perhaps we can work on some projects together in future.

Google Chrome

I’ve just had seen the announcement that Google is announcing a new browser called Google Chrome. The second generation of browsers wars seem to be starting. IE8 is due to be released soon. Firefox 3 has just come out and Opera 9.5 is still around.

Google has the worlds biggest advertising spot and they will surely be prepared to use it. Google can bundle their new browser with all their products. What if Google said that only users of it’s browser get the full benefit of it’s web applications? Read the rest of this entry »
