Who Invented The First Password?

Fernando Corbató Invented The First Ever Password

Ever wondered who actually invented the first ever password?

 

Well it was a very clever gent called Fernando Corbató in the early 60’s – if only he knew what he was starting, the significance is quite unbeweavable

 

Here is a video just in case – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q07PhW5sCEk

 

Also, Allan Scherr was the first person to HACK or at the time steal a password.  Interesting…..

Concrete Desk Accessories?!

Hello popstars…… I think that the title says it all.

Great idea for gadget office ware.
Great idea for gadget office ware.

I almost just palmed this off, but then realised the genius that is, Concrete Desk Accessories.

A very weighty set of office accoutrement, including heffer tape dispenser, back breaking pencil holder, and a little tray.

Just the other day a guy at work was complaing about his tape dispenser being taken – not with the Concrete tape dispenser you won't (well the suspect may have a hernia so they will be easy to find!)

Have a look and let us know what you think.

Another great story from Howard Simpson. I did not know this! Get to your Apple iPhone settings immediately.

In iOS6, tracking is on by default and allows advertisers to track and target users.  You have to explicitly turn it off if you don’t want advertisers to see what you’re up to.  The tracking control is found under General -> About -> Advertising in the Settings menu.  It’s called Limit Ad Tracking and it must be turned ON not OFF.

Get back Google Maps on iOS 6

20121208-194956.jpg

Get back Google Maps on iOS 6. A great little article. Now why didn’t I think of this?.

A nice little guide from my new friend Howard, take a look!

If you miss having Google Maps on your Apple iPhone or iPad, you can create a link to the HTML 5 version by doing the following:

Navigating to maps.google.com

20121209-132851.jpg

Pressing the Share button (Google have added a notice now)

20121209-132930.jpg

Then selecting ‘Add to Home Screen’

20121209-132948.jpg

It’s not as good as the App but does include features such as public transport and walking directions.

So I just read that Google Maps for iOS 6 is nearing the approval stage according to sources close to the matter. Google has already apparently been giving beta test copies out to people outside of the Google.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal the source confirmed that Google has in fact been working on a replacement for both Google Maps and and a big update for YouTube on iPhone and iPad.

Ever since Apple ditched the preinstalled Google Maps in favour of its own Apple Maps app, Google has remained quiet about whether it will be releasing an alternative for iPhone 5 and iPad.

It would seem however as though Google are indeed nearly ready to file their replacement to Apple for approval which would then mean waiting to see if Apple would indeed approve such a direct competitor to their own maps service.
