Bipartisan politics, anyone? Is there such a thing anymore? It seems that the last time anything decent got done was when Clinton was in office.

Give us someone who is respected on both sides to vote for, please?

Here is a recent article about password security, since it seems there have been a lot of popular sites that have been hacked lately.

It is my recommendation, and my practice, that you have at least three strong passwords. The article explains strong passwords, so I won't go into it. At the very least you should consider a unique password for banking, one for email and one for everything else. Also consider the reputation of the site before you use one of your more common passwords with them, if that's how you roll.

In the end it is ideal to use a password tracker program, and have a unique password for each site, and then memorize the password for you email in case you need to have your password emailed to you. That doesn't work well if you can't get into your email!

Isn't it time we take control from our politicians? Why do we pay them and their staff so much money when this is the digital age?

For those of us that are educated and interested in what happens in our lives and communities, we could help form decisions at the speed of light using our computers! Rather than our leaders making questionable decisions among themselves, or bending to the will of the lobbyist make a transparent electronic application to help taxpayers take ownership of the laws that are passed and the dollars that are spent. The same process could be used to eliminate the electoral college as well.

There are so many possibilities to help give some control back to the taxpayers! Having representatives is still helpful, and we still need people to help educate us in the decisions to be made, but just imagine if lobbyists had to pay all of the taxpayers rather than just a small group of people. It seems to me that we, the people, would have more influence over what happens with our money.

Boehner and so many other politicians live in their own little bubble

I've never been able to stand this guy anyway. He has always seemed very detached from the general public.

He is right in the aspect of the U.S. having some of the best in medical technology. On the other hand I would be willing to bet that he has no problem affording it. I guess he makes sure his glass is half-full before swallowing the pills.

I have to admit, Sophos is really hard on Apple for not releasing regular security updates, and not allowing anti-malware programs to run on their devices, even though it seems to be pretty easy to jailbreak them (getting around security is fairly easy with Google at your fingers tips – even a caveman could do it).

But the same thing happened to another company back in the late 90s. Something about the need to fix flaws faster in some program… was it maybe Windows? Yes, Microsoft was a little late to the game, too, and now we see updates just about every week – since Windows XP.

I guess Larry the Cable Guy said it best: 'It's like checking on your burgers after they're burnt!'
