The post that started the whole thing (apparently):
Love to hear everyones thoughts?
"In summary, LastPass customers do not need to be concerned about their LastPass accounts. Though LastPass employs OpenSSL, we have multiple layers of encryption to protect our users and never have access to those encryption keys."
But I struggle to understand or believe that such a high percentage of the surveyed businesses actually plan to have their own app by year end. Has it occurred to any of these businesses that we smartphone users have limited space - and time - to deal with their silly, single purpose shopping apps that only allow us to buy their products?
In fact, I have an iPhone and and iPad, and yet I deleted the Apple Store app because I would use it less than once a year.
This reminds me of the late nineties when businesses blithely printed brochures and churned out trade show signs that yelled "Check us out on the World Wide Web!!" "Visit us at www.crappywebsite.com!"
What are merchants planning on say to persuade us to download an app? "Try our app! It's fun!"
Retailers and merchants, if you plan to offer an app, listen up! I will only download your app if it is likely that I will use it twice a week. Your app will be like a grain of salt in a 500 foot high hill of sand. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
