Yup, finally broke down and bought a tablet. I decided to when I saw an ad that it was $100 off at a store I’d rather not mention. Why? Because I don’t like “that store” at all, but $50 less than anywhere else had it priced on sale was enough to make me tolerate going inside “that place.” No, it wasn’t Walmart. It’s one of those big box electronic stores, but all they care about is up-selling, not really helping the person get what they want and caring about what their needs are. But since I know quite a bit more than the average buyer, it’s easy for me to tell the obnoxious employee to go…. away. The nice ones I may chat with, though, if I’m in a geekie mood.
If you have a LinkedIn account, I strongly encourage you to change your password immediately. If you are using this same password on any other site, it is very wise to change that one as well. I also read the eHarmony was hacked, so if you have an account there, change that password, too.
First, a very brief “lecture” on passwords… hackers know what they’re doing. Please do not EVER use a password that is a “no-duh” password, like your dogs name and a birthday combined together. All someone has to do is bounce around on Facebook, your blog, or the like, see you have 3 kids, 2 dogs and one cat. Somewhere I’m sure you’ve shared their names. Eventually, it all fits together and you are hacked. And for Horus’s sake, NEVER use the same password on more than one account.
