Mashable Video: SplashData's annual Worst Passwords List

Video from Mashable:
Sometimes it’s good to be like everyone else — but when it comes to choosing a password, we should all strive to be as unique as possible.
More people choose “password” than any other word or phrase to secure their accounts, according to a recent study. In case you haven’t taken the hint, that makes password the absolute worst string of characters you can chose to protect your online identity.
SplashData has just released its annual list of the worst passwords, which features the most common phrases used on the Internet and posted by hackers.
The three worst passwords haven’t changed since 2011; they’re password, 123456 and 12345678. The new worst passwords added to this year’s list include welcome, jesus, ninja, mustang and password1.

Back-To-School App? GoodReader for iPad!

From The iPad FanIt’s back-to-school time around the country and as students head off to classes I started thinking about what one app I’d have to recommend the most. I thought about iTunes U, and Dropbox, but in the end, I decided that out of everything I’ve used to make the iPad as useful as possible, GoodReader is my top choice.

BugMe! Stickies Pro Review

From Android RundownBugMe! took me back to a less cluttered time… the UI was great. It invoked stickies (obviously) and corkboard. The program allowed me to create stickies by writing on squared yellow “paper” and to populate these newly created stickies on my device home page.
The ease of entry is where I think BugMe shines. I could enter data with the installed keyboard, but also had the option of writing with my finger. Now for me, this is huge; it put back the “impromptu” into impromptu note taking.

Boat Beacon featured in

"If you only need the AIS basics and you boat in waters close to populated areas, you can even access AIS by smartphone. One new app, called Boat Beacon, brings the data up right on your phone. The app provides collision detection out to 60 miles, CPA calculations, basic GPS data, and MMSI numbers so you can hail nearby vessels directly. Boat Beacon is available for iPhones only, and it goes for $9.99 on the iTunes store."

Review: BugMe! Stickies Pro for iPhone and iPad

From Radiant ReviewsThere are many different colored post it notes that you can choose from.  You can also choose to take your own picture and use that as your note background which is pretty cool.  You can also assign a particular note a due date, so it will remind you and the note will appear letting you know that your appointment is coming up.  It works via push notifications, and it works extremely well.  I have been very pleased with its overall functionality.

Using an iPad for your next presentation? Here are the apps you need

From Forbes Magazine:

I looked long and hard for this app and tried a bunch of others before I settled on Goodreader. Basically, it’s a way to store files on your iPad. What’s the big deal? You can easily store video, pdfs, slides, etc – and then play or view them with a click or two. With the right adaptor, you’re set to play video clips with the least muss and fuss I’ve found so far. And it’s real easy to move video files from computer to iPad with a drag and drop when your iPad is syncing.

MailTones – Email Alerts and Sounds

From The iPhone Mom:

MailTones is an app for those wishing to cut through their email clutter. The app works by allowing you to assign custom sounds to various emails. You can assign for different contacts, subjects and senders. Assign the sound and when an email comes in matching that parameter you’ll receive a push notification on your phone, alerting you with the sound you chose. There are over 60 tones to choose from as well as a “Do Not Disturb” feature that can be automatically set up for evenings.

I think using an app like this could be a real time saver as it allows you to quickly identify your important emails.
