Tech News and Commentary
Dave and the team discuss Amazon’s devices holiday sales and associated crashes, Amazon potentially losing dominance of the smart speaker market next year, foldable smartphone advances, cross-country trips on an autonomous car, Qualcomm’s win in Germany over Apple, self-powered electric bandages for faster healing, and more.
Chad in Carl Junction, Missouri listens to the podcast and asked: “I’m trying to find some kind of password protector, so I don’t have to type in password every time. Wondering if you have any suggestions or how secure those things are. I’d appreciate anything you can help me with.“
Chad, your best options will cost some money. You can look at LastPass, it’s very popular, in active development, it has smartphone apps but it will cost you $2/month.
1Password also offers smartphones apps as well as computer software and it will cost you a little more at $3/month, with a $5/month family plan. Keeper offers similar features for $2.50/month.
You can always go the hardware route with devices like Yubico’s Yubikeys or Google’s Titan keys, but that’s probably a step further than you’re trying to go.
