Security Solution using smart phones
details
Recently loads of start up have come up related to door locks, bicycle locks etc. and using a smart phone and apps to open them up or locks them with a bundle of other features in it.
Well its an awesome idea and looks like, its been grabbing loads of attention these days considering the increase in number of smart phone usage in daily life.

How would you fix Swarm/Foursquare?

Back in May Foursquare announced that they were splitting their app into two, keeping place recommendations with the Foursquare while shunting check-ins over to a new app called Swarm. Now that the summer's almost over and we'd all had a few months to adjust to this new way of doing things, how's it going for you? Did you even install the new app, or are you holding out as long as... Read more →

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.

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 →

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:
