Saved Passwords

Saving passwords? should get a warning from browser. Master Password (which encrypts local store) is a real simple solution, so why not default? better yet, use a password manager.

A Start, Finally

The main media uses terms like cyberwar and cyber weapons without realizing that there is no definition of these. Cyberwar by most opinions has never occurred. Cyber weapon is a silly term mostly; IT uses 'trojan" and "bot:" to the point. The supposed activity in the Iranian nuke plant wasn't cyber war - it was espionage. War is defined (as best possible) in existing international law and agreements (Hague conventions, Geneva conventions for examples), and there is even a general Law of the Seas (e.g. UNCLOS). But there is no such code in Cyber. We need such before nations or non-state actors act inadvisably (e.g. 1-hack a nuclear plant; 2-boom). This approach from CCD COE is much more intelligent that say, US Cyber command, US DHS's cyber involvement (oh no no no) and much else the US has officially stated.

Connectificationtivity

Hurrray! But it seems most are missing the point. OF COURSE you 'could' bind your wireline with your cellphone to really move - by why? simpler to upgrade. But how about you are sitting at a bus stop between a Hooters, Staples, a MacDonalds and a Starbucks? Now THATS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!! gather them together and smoke the internet!!!

It pays to study the habits of your email users

Pile much, File once

Piling is better if you need to find mail. Filing/foldering means memorizing a hierarchy and probably having multiple copies of emails in various topical folders. Pile until the mailbox reaches its limit, then archive oldest out of inbox (topical archives may be better than piled archives). Categories function is slicker in recent release, just not exactly better. Google improved theirs with a hierarchal tagxonomy (at least 2 levels nested). When outlook allowed text for categories, you could pseudo-nest. Now it seems you cant - only 1 level in Outlook.
