1. Hacked!
If you are like me, you have a hard time remembering your multitude of passwords; and don’t want to give Facebook further power by signing in to websites and apps via your Facebook account.
My husband is continually remonstrating with me about using such simple or repetitive ones and the danger of doing so. The danger is the plethora of hackers online and the ease of having your identity and passwords stolen.
While sitting in a conference this past week in Adelaide for Conveyancers, one of the speakers – Alastair MacGibbon, CEO Centre for Internet Safety offered a great tip on setting hard to crack passwords, but ones easy to remember.

  1. First pick a phrase you’ll remember. Such as bigbrownfox.
  2. Next substitute some of the letters for numbers or symbols and capitols. Such as B1gBr0wnF0x (with one’s for I’s and zeros for o).
  3. End it with the site you’re on. So your NZ herald password would be B1gBr0wnF0xNZH. For LinkedIn it might be b1gbr0wNF0xLi

2. Outlook. Easing your pain. Enhancing your gain
Are you wasting too much time going through irrelevant emails? How many opportunities are you missing?
Want to know how you turn Outlook into a great customer relationship management program?

Then order either the print or the ebook version of Conquer Your Email Overload. How about I put the print book on special for Aug/Sept? $35 $30

3. Three Nifty Home Life Ideashang

  1. When you have to hang something with exact holes, photocopy the back, and use it as a template (image)
  2. Wrap a wet paper towel around beer, and put it in the freezer to cool in just 2 minutes
  3. Pinching the bottom end of a banana is a far easier way to open it.

4. How you get your lost/stolen Android or iPhone back

Here is a fabulous tip to share. Have you had your iPhone or Android phone stolen? Lost at an event? In a taxi or hotel? You can pinpoint where it is to try to get it back

Both Apple and Samsung have built in apps that when activated from the internet will show a message with a special password allowing the person to unlock the phone; call you. You can also wipe all the data off the phone.
Here are two how-to links:

Hope you never need this!
