Today is the 4th Anniversary of the 1st Instagram
On July 16, 2010, Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom took a picture of a golden retriever at a Baja, CA taco stand, with a guest appearance by his girlfriend's foot. This was the very first "Instagram" ever taken. Today, Instagram users have shared over 20,000,000,000 photos to date and each day, 60,000,000 more are added.
Our first "real" Instagram (we're @Engadget on there, by the way) ... Read more →

I'm sure you all have heard of Password Managers, That little icon that sits on your Browser add-on bar, and remembers all your passwords for you. But can we trust them? Are they really as secure as they calm them to be?

Do I have an unhealthy fear of in-app purchases?
I think it's pretty common knowledge that I love playing games in various forms and on various platforms. Consoles, PCs, mobile devices, and even board games.
While browsing through the App Store, I noticed a new game that seems pretty awesome. Virtual multiplayer jousting! Being obsessed with things like Game of Thrones and other medieval high fantasy genres, this is something that should be an immediate download for me.
Of course, I click it and see that it's free.... Read more →

How do you keep up with that honey-do list?
You might have been boxed into using whatever project/task management software your company is willing to pay for. Maybe it'sAsana, Basecamp, Trello, Todoist, or some form of an in-house solution. But what about your life tasks, like remembering to pay bills or weeding the garden?
For the better part of a year, I was using Asana and things were going ok, but I just grew frustrated with the functionality, so I tried using Evernote as a task management tool. Needless to say, Evernote can be nice... Read more →

Facebook for Android switches to a more flat design, but does it help?
Last week Facebook released a new version of their app for Android, codenamed "Katana." The newest version of Katana streamlines some things, taking the icons to access your wall, invites, messaging, notifications, as well as the drop down menu with more options (events, apps, groups, settings), and placing all of these onto one top toolbar. The "Status, Photo, Check In" trio has been moved to the bottom. The old side menu that had everything else? It's gone now.
Oh,... Read more →

Why am I getting new followers on photo sites?
When Flickr released the new version of their app on Android and iOS, I upgraded out of curiosity, and also ended up uploading some photos off my phone to try it out. http://www.engadget.com/2014/04/17/flickr-instagram-like-app-update/
Earlier this week, my phone gave a buzz -- I had new followers on Flickr. After turning off the notifications (why the hell were they on in the first place?), I found that not only did I have several new followers, but some of those new followers favorited photos... Read more →

What's the oldest password you remember?
I'm sure we all had some pretty bad passwords when we were first introduced to the internet. What's the oldest password you still remember? Any other humorous ones you remember?
Oldest I remember: samaisthebomb (I was dating a girl called Sama at the time)
Humorous ones:
I went through a phase of making passwords for my work email (passwords expired monthly) that started with qwert or just qwe. Some of the more memorable ones include:
