In a few weeks, we'll be leaving on an epic vacation to Southeast Asia. In the meantime, I've been searching for useful applications that will help us get around and understand things while traveling abroad. Do you have any good recommendations? Share them in the comments below!
Here's what's on our phones so far. (I apologize for the iOS centric nature of my list -- it's what we're traveling with!)

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.

Should I Trust Password Managers?
details
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?
details
http://i.imgur.com/sUmBpBW.jpg
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?
details
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 →

Why am I getting new followers on photo sites?
details
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:

Do you use a password manager?
details

That is a generic screenshot of 1Password. Fear not, it's not my data. :)
It seems like there's a new security breach at a different website every day. Besides being an inconvenience at best and a nightmare at worst, a particularly troubling is that all these leaked passwords floating around have given hackers better strategies for cracking passwords: http://lifehacker.com/5937303/your-clever-password-tricks-arent-protecting-you-from-todays-hackers
