Great article.
We’ve talked a lot about password security, and how you should be using longer, complex passphrases, rather than short passwords. In this video, Edward Snowden explains why you should use passphrases in a way all your friends and family can understand.

I would have written a shorter letter but I ran out of time.

Nothing drags down writing more than spreading good ideas over too many words. Making keystrokes matter has only grown in importance as communication and the text that powers it become increasingly inseparable.

If you are a windows power user who works frequently in the windows command shell (cmd.exe) this might be helpful for you.  Also, if you work in both windows and bash, this can make the two environments work similarly.

Clink adds powerful bash-style command line editing to cmd.exe

Looks like a great tool.  I'll have to check it out.
You download too much crap. Sometimes you download the same crap multiple times. Even if you need to keep those files, you don’t need two of them. To get rid of the dupes, we recommend dupeGuru.

Great idea!
Journaling boosts creativity and helps you reflect. But it can be time consuming to write a page or two every single day. If you don't feel like you have time to journal regularly, start a "single sentence journal."

Nice!  Good job Discover.

Now the rest of you (AmEx, Visa, MC, etc.) need to catch the vision here.
When you misplace a credit card, the first thing you usually do is cancel it in case it falls into the wrong hands. But it's a hassle to wait for a new card and update your information. Discover cardholders can now get around this by temporarily freezing their cards instead of canceling them altogether.

Welcome to another episode of Security Theater!  In this episode we see that two more major sports are overreacting to irrational fears about terrorism while, at the same time, profiting from this "security" decision.

Great article and survey.  

61% say they have become less confident the surveillance efforts are serving the public interest after watching news and other developments in recent months.

57% say it is unacceptable for the government to monitor the communications of U.S. citizens.

I live next door to the care center so I see on a daily basis how the staff treats the residents. I would not allow anyone in my family to live there (I would say "be incarcerated there" is more accurate). The staff pays little attention to the residents. Residents can be seen wandering the neighborhood, unsupervised, at times and have even broken in to neighbors homes. The staff / management also don't seem to care about the interface / relationship between the residents, the home itself, and the neighbors. I would think this would be an excellent opportunity for the home to change the stereotype of those with mental capacity issues. Instead, they seem to almost go out of their way to offend and annoy the surrounding neighbors. This is not to say that all staff members are this way. There are certainly a very few who actually seem to care about the residents, but they are clearly in the minority.

Vision Wear is an awesome company to work with. Eric and Kathleen always go out of their way to ensure their customers are happy. They make a great quality product and they do it on time and within budget. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Jason and the crew at Laptop Depot are great to work with. They have outstanding customer service and great prices. Don't waste your money buying a brand new computer when you don't really need it. Instead, buy a used machine from Laptop Depot and save some serious cash. Some of their machines come with the remainder of the factory warranty. In addition to laptops, they also have desktop machines, monitors, printers, and a variety of other items.
