Speed through Web logins with 1Password 4!Remembering and entering Web passwords is both difficult and insecure, but it doesn't have to be that way, thanks to 1Password, the popular password manager from AgileBits. In this ebook, Joe Kissell brings years of real-world 1Password experience into play--plus many hours with the 1Password 4 for Mac beta--to explain not only how to create, edit, and enter Web login data easily, but also how to autofill contact and credit card information when shopping online, audit your passwords and generate better ones, and share your passwords with key people and among multiple devices.

Find out how to create logins, sort them, search them, tag them, delete them, and more. You'll especially find help with editing logins. For example, if you change a password from dragon7 to eatsevendragonsforlunchatyahoo, you'll want to incorporate that into its login. Or, use 1Password's password generator to come up with complex passwords, like dGx7Crve3WucELF#s.Understand password security: Get guidance on what makes for a good password, and read Joe's important Password Dos and Don'ts. An advanced topic later in the ebook covers how to perform a security audit in order to improve poor passwords quickly. (For Joe's full advice on passwords, read Take Control of Your Passwords.)Go beyond Web logins: For a lot of people, a primary point of 1Password is to speed the process of signing in to Web sites.

You'll also find advice on storing passwords for password-protected files and encrypted disk images, plus ideas for keeping track of confidential files, private diary entries, scans of important cards or documents, and more.You'll also discover the answers to key questions, including: What are the main changes between 1Password 3 and 1Password 4?In addition to 1Password, should I use my Web browser's password, contact, or credit card autofill feature?

What should I do?I made a long, random password for my bank account, but it wasn't saved in the login item! Where can I find it?How can I use one username and password with multiple Web sites, like one Apple ID for both iCloud and the online Apple Store?What if I need to access my 1Password data from another person's computer?How can I speed up Web logins and filling in shopping cart info with 1Password in iOS or Android?Is it true that I can initiate 1Password login items from keyboard launcher utilities like LaunchBar, Alfred, and Quicksilver?

Let LaunchBar's superpowers save you from a lifetime of Mac drudgery! Join Mac expert Kirk McElhearn, and learn how to use LaunchBar, from Objective Development, to carry out nearly any Mac task more efficiently. To help you develop a mental map of all that LaunchBar can do, Kirk explains LaunchBar in the context of its five superpowers -- key LaunchBar techniques that no Mac user should be without!Abbreviation search. The primary way you select things in LaunchBar is by typing a few letters associated with the item you want to find. LaunchBar is smart (so the abbreviation doesn't have to be obvious) and learns from what you type (in case it guessed wrong the first time).Browsing. Sometimes you don't know what you want until you see it. Abbreviation search won't help there, but you can browse folders, recent documents for an app, clipboard history, snippets, and more.Sub-search. Too many results in a list to browse? Try a sub-search, which is an abbreviation search limited to a list of search results.Send To. Want to open a PDF in PDFpen rather than Preview? Or attach a document to a new email message? You can send anything on LaunchBar's bar to another application, folder, action, or service.Instant Send. For those who want to save the most time, Instant Send is the fastest way to put a selected file or bit of text on the bar, ready to open in another app, move to a folder, send to a Google search, look up in Dictionary, and more.Don't worry about remembering all this -- a one-page cheat sheet in the book will jog your memory until LaunchBar has worked its way into your fingertips.Consider two examples:Example 1: The most beloved LaunchBar function is to access apps quickly -- especially apps that you don't keep in the Dock. Just invoke LaunchBar (with a keyboard shortcut of your choosing), type a quick abbreviation -- whatever seems natural to you -- and press Return. (Or, take the express route with LaunchBar's handy Instant Open.) LaunchBar doesn't require predefined abbreviations; instead, it adapts to you! This method of accessing an app uses the Abbreviation Search, superpower #1.Example 2: Once you've become accustomed to the ease of accessing any app, you can start applying abbreviation search to other tasks and begin to unleash LaunchBar's other four superpowers. One example is to employ superpower #5, Instant Send, to file photos: select a photo's file icon in the Finder, hold down the key you use to invoke LaunchBar for an extra second to put the file on the bar, select the Add to iPhoto action, and press Return to send the photo to iPhoto. We could go on forever with our favorite examples: pasting the third item back from the clipboard history, moving a file into a deeply nested folder, creating calendar events, skipping to the next track in iTunes, running Terminal commands, looking up terms in Wikipedia, counting the characters in selected text, tweeting a quote from an article, finding your uncle's phone number, and so on. To learn how do all this, and more, read the ebook!

Fed up with the high tolls charged by your ordinary telephone service? If you're itching to cut the copper cord with your costly, traditional phone service, you need Talk is Cheap, the new, easy-to-understand guide to understanding and using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and other Internet telephone options. Technologies such as VoIP are gaining a great deal of attention these days as more people switch from standard telephone service to phone service via the Internet. But while the cost savings are outstanding, there are some issues with Internet telephony that you should know about. Are the connections reliable? Is the quality comparable? Will it include 911 services? James Gaskin's Talk is Cheap addresses these issues and many more by explaining how to make the switch and what the trade-offs will be if you opt for Internet telephony over traditional phone services. Talk is Cheap focuses on the increasingly popular services from Vonage, which uses VoIP, and Skype--a free service that operates as a peer-to-peer (P2P) network with the ability to turn any PC, Mac, or Pocket PC into a telephone. The book explains your options; explores the background behind, the workings of, and differences between VoIP and P2P networks; and discusses the advantages and drawbacks of both technologies (including service offerings, quality, capabilities, completion rates, and more). Talk is Cheap then goes into detail on what you can expect in Internet service from traditional phone companies such as Verizon and ATT. In addition, you will learn more advanced techniques, including how to turn your Palm or Pocket PC into an Internet phone and how to work with Wi-Fi phones and videophones. A straightforward, quick introduction to the ins and outs of using Internet telephone services, this book provides everything you need to make informed telephone decisions--whether you're thinking about the switch from traditional phone service or have already made it and want to get the most out of your new Internet telephone.

Conventional techniques for marketing technology products fail primarily because marketers do not truly understand their customers. Do you know what customers really think about your technology? Now, drawing on their award-winning research and case studies ranging from America Online to the Discovery Channel, marketing experts A. Parasuraman and Charles L. Colby demonstrate how the adoption of technology is influenced by unique beliefs that do not apply to conventional products and services. In the context of a general set of powerful techno-marketing strategies, Parasuraman and Colby introduce "Technology Readiness" (TR), a groundbreaking concept that enables you to measure and assess a customer's predisposition to adopt new technologies. Employing their TR construct -- a psychological amalgam of fears, hopes, desires, and frustrations about technology -- the authors identify five types of technology customers: the highly optimistic and innovative "Explorers," the innovative yet cautious "Pioneers," the uncertain "Skeptics" who need the benefits of technology proved, the insecure "Paranoids," and the resistant "Laggards." Using this typology, you can customize your technology strategies by combining insights from your context-specific assessments with general marketing strategies presented in the book. Essential reading in technology companies will be the chapter devoted to Parasuraman's Pyramid Model, which explains the critical role technology plays in a marketing organization as a link between employees, the organization, and the customer. Finally, the authors have included a self-administered quiz so you can score your own Technology Readiness and a chapter on the "Techno-Ready Marketing Audit" to provide a framework for taking immediate action based on the precepts in this book.
Illustrating how computer security is as concerned with social relationships as it is with technology, Johnston provides an illuminating ethnography that considers corporate culture and the workplace environment of the antivirus industry. Using a qualitative, interdisciplinary approach, which combines organizational and security studies with critical and social analysis of science and technology, Johnston questions the motivations, contradictions and negotiations of antivirus professionals. She examines the tensions between the service ethics and profit motives--does the industry release viruses to generate demand for antivirus software?--and considers the dynamics within companies by looking at facets such as gender bias and power politics. Technological Turf Wars is an informed, enlightened and entertaining view of how the production of computer security technology is fraught with social issues.
