Passpack gives you the tools to organize your passwords all in one place, the way you want them, with tags. For example, your Amazon.com password can be tagged both “shopping” and “books”. Your Macy’s account can be tagged both “shopping” and “clothes”. If you click on the “shopping” tag inside your Passpack account, you’ll see both your Amazon and your Macy’s entries. If you click “books” you’ll see Amazon only.
Once you’ve filled up your account, you can quickly login to those websites with your Passpack It! browser button. Turn on Passpack’s 1 Click Login, browse the web, then when you’re ready to login somewhere – click your button. Can’t get any easier than that!
A great idea for a weekend project is to change all of your passwords into something unique for each account. Now that you no longer have to remember all your passwords, use Passpack’s password generator to create strong, unguessable passwords and significantly reduce your risk of identity theft.

If you installed expensive software on your computer and you rely on your systems functionality, you should consider cloning your hard drive. The process includes the purchase of a separate hard drive in equal or greater storage capacity than your current drive and making an exact duplicate drive that boots your computer.
Also, if you own a business that relies on a server and its software and settings over your network, this solution is one to consider and worth the expense considering the benefits and safe keeping. Since most backups focus on data, this solution focuses on the actual system and its settings and configuration.
This process only applies to Microsoft windows operating systems since Apple has a built in backup utility that can do this automatically

Apple TV gives you anytime access to endless entertainment. Thousands of HD movies and TV shows from iTunes — many in stunning 1080p — play through Apple TV on your HDTV, and music and photos stream from your computer. You just click and watch. With AirPlay, it’s simple to play content from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch on your TV.1 And the Apple TV interface makes it easy to find whatever you’re in the mood for.
Quiet, energy efficient, and so small it fits in the palm of your hand, Apple TV sits neatly on a TV stand or in a crowded media cabinet. When it’s not filling your living room with drama, romance, and comedy, it uses less power than a night-light. And the included Apple Remote makes it easy to get to your favorite entertainment.
Setting up Apple TV takes almost no time at all. Just plug the power cord into the wall and connect Apple TV to your widescreen TV using an HDMI cable (sold separately). Since everything streams wirelessly to Apple TV using your Wi-Fi network, that’s all you need. Except for the popcorn.
With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream content from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to your widescreen TV via Apple TV.1 So if you want to watch a movie stored on one of your devices, you don’t need to buy or rent it again to watch it on the best screen in the house. You can also stream home movies, photos, or videos from websites and AirPlay-enabled apps. And with AirPlay Mirroring, you can display the screen of your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch on your HDTV.3 So when you tap, swipe, pinch, or play something, it shows up on the big screen — ideal for sharing entertainment with friends or showing off your gaming skills (or lack thereof).
With iCloud, you can buy movies and TV shows on Apple TV and watch them on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. And vice versa.4 iCloud also stores your photos and pushes them wirelessly to all your devices5 — including your HDTV via Apple TV. It’s the easiest way to get instant access to your content, no matter which device you’re using.
Fill your home with the music you love — right from your Apple TV. Just select Music from the Apple TV main menu to play your purchased iTunes music directly from iCloud. If you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, you can access your entire music collection — including songs you’ve imported from CDs.
Uploading all the photos from a summer vacation or a big event is as easy as doing nothing at all. With Photo Stream in iCloud, your most recent 1000 photos automatically appear on all your devices — including Apple TV — no matter which device you used to take the picture. No syncing. No sending. Your photos are just there on your HDTV. For you, and everyone, to enjoy.
Don’t fall into the old paradigm of “it will never happen to me.” While there is certainly a chance that you will never have a need for the backups you make of your files, if something does happen to your computer you will certainly be glad that you have them.
What is a Backup, Anyway?
Backup should be an essential part of your computing experience if you spend great amounts of time on your computer and/or use your computer for important personal or business dealings. There are too many stories of people who have lost all of their files due to system crashes or computer viruses to ignore. When you backup your files, you are storing your files separately from your computer. In this way, if your computer crashes or is infected with a virus that results in a loss of files, you will still have access to your files on backup disks or whatever other backup program you choose to use, such as online backup. You can then restore your files to your computer proper from these backup sources.
Why Do I Need to Backup My Files?
Don’t fall into the old paradigm of “it will never happen to me.” While there is certainly a chance that you will never have a need for the backups you make of your files, if something does happen to your computer you will certainly be glad that you have them. And you do not have to backup your entire computer, although this is certainly something that many people do, but only the files that are of the most importance to you. Some things are easily replaced, and there is no need to backup these sorts of things, but those irreplaceable documents or files that are yours and yours alone should be saved in a place where they cannot be damaged. That way, no matter what happens to your computer, you can have security in the fact that all of your files are available in backup.

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) – Hacking experts have demonstrated ways to attack Android smartphones using methods they said work on virtually all such devices in use today, despite recent efforts by search engine giant Google to boost protection.
Experts showed off their prowess at the Black Hat hacking conference in Las Vegas, where some 6,500 corporate and government security technology workers gathered to learn about emerging threats to their networks.
“Google is making progress, but the authors of malicious software are moving forward,” said Sean Schulte of Trustwave’s SpiderLabs.
Google spokeswoman Gina Scigliano declined to comment on the security concerns or the new research.
Accuvant researcher Charlie Miller demonstrated a method for delivering malicious code to Android phones using a new Android feature known as near field communications.
“I can take over your phone,” Miller said.
Near field communications allow users to share photos with friends, make payments or exchange other data by bringing Android phones within a few centimeters of similarly equipped devices such as another phone or a payment terminal.
Miller said he figured out how to create a device the size of a postage stamp that could be stuck in an inconspicuous place such as near a cash register at a restaurant. When an Android user walks by, the phone would get infected, said Miller.
He spent five years as a global network exploit analyst at the U.S. National Security Agency, where his tasks included breaking into foreign computer systems.
Miller and another hacking expert, Georg Wicherski of CrowdStrike, have also infected an Android phone with a piece of malicious code that Wicherski unveiled in February.
That piece of software exploits a security flaw in the Android browser that was publicly disclosed by Google’s Chrome browser development team, according to Wicherski.
Google has fixed the flaw in Chrome, which is frequently updated, so that most users are now protected, he said.
But Wicherski said Android users are still vulnerable because carriers and device manufacturers have not pushed those fixes or patches out to users.
Marc Maiffret, chief technology officer of the security firm BeyondTrust, said: “Google has added some great security features, but nobody has them.”
Experts say iPhones and iPads don’t face the same problem because Apple has been able to get carriers to push out security updates fairly quickly after they are released.
Two Trustwave researchers told attendees about a technique they discovered for evading Google’s “Bouncer” technology for identifying malicious programs in its Google Play Store.
They created a text-message blocking application that uses a legitimate programming tool known as java script bridge. Java script bridge lets developers remotely add new features to a program without using the normal Android update process.
Companies including Facebook and LinkedIn use java script bridge for legitimate purposes, according to Trustwave, but it could also be exploited maliciously.
To prove their point, they loaded malicious code onto one of their phones and remotely gained control of the browser. Once they did that, they could force it to download more code and grant them total control.
“Hopefully Google can solve the problem quickly,” said Nicholas Percoco, senior vice president of Trustwave’s SpiderLabs. “For now, Android is the Wild West.”

There has been a LOT of talk and chatter circulating about a well known IT Computer Tech Support company closing their business known as “Make It Work”. The company serviced thousands of customers from Santa Barbara through Los Angeles down to San Diego. This unfortunate situation has left ex Make It Work customers in limbo. Many of their customers are irate concerning their pending contracts and losing money to the business after abruptly closing shop. More importantly, since Make It Work did NOT allow their customers direct access to their service technicians, it has been a challenge to get in contact with the technicians they once trusted with their computers, data, and overall networks.
Due to the recent close of Make It Work’s business and services, Ron Patterson is gaining widespread exposure to his own business known as Tech Help LA.
Many ex Make It Work customers have diligently and hastily Googled and have found Ron Patterson’s whereabouts to get help with their computers for technical support. Ron states “By the graces of God I was smart enough to have the courage to branch off and start my own business that made more sense using better tech tools and embracing remote technical support”. Ron left Make It Work on good terms almost exactly 1 year to the day before their business completely failed. 34 Jobs were lost and payroll was still pending and unpaid. Company cars were repossessed and customers ranted in disbelief.
Message from our CEO – Ron Patterson:
“I AM AVAILABLE TO HELP”
My Company has been in business now for over a year and the demand for technical support is growing constantly. Our pricing is as low as it gets for a trustworthy tech support company (See pricing). If you have been looking for me… Here I am at your service. Feel free to call and ask for me directly from our Contact Us page where you will find our business contact number and email. I pray for the individuals directly affected by the close of Make It Work. I encourage all of the technicians at Make It Work who lost their jobs to also reach out and I will see what I can do to help. At the very least keep Tech Help LA in mind as a reliable source for technical support, web design & development, social media services, and general technology consulting.
