- 1Password and Dropbox
Rob Griffiths (a MacWorld Contributing Editor and the creator of the Mac OS X Hints site) demonstrates something that I’ve been doing — and loving — for a while: Using Dropbox to synchronize your 1Password data across all your Macs! LINK TO VIDEO HERE
1Password is one of a slew of newer applications that help regular people (not just the Über-geeky) to make and use stronger passwords. Though some might disagree, I think that the risk of not using a strong password is greater than the risk from sending encrypted password data via https onto an encrypted server. Highly recommended!

- On MicroSD Problems « bunnie’s blog
Speaking of the Über-geeky, what do you get when you cross a Hardware Engineer with a Detective? Bunnie…P.I.?!!? Read how Andrew “Bunnie” Huang used his M.I.T.-honed skills to uncover a mystery — and be thankful that some people know what the hell they’re doing in this world. Somebody get that man a mustache, eh?

- Chumby prototype with Marvell innards spotted at MWC 2010 — Engadget
Let’s make this a “bunnie two-fer”: Regular readers know that I’m a fan of the Chumby devices that he created — and Engadget has a short post (and a UI walk-through) about a new Chumby-powered prototype that they spotted at the MWC 2010 show. Let’s hope that this ends up as more than a conceptual reference design!
