As today, nested inside 52 groups, I am storing 748 password but my life is pretty easy.
I need to know only one of them: my master #password.
The average password lenght is 20 characters.
My favourite password manager? #Keepass.
It's for free, opensource, multi-platform. You can find multiple forks but I would suggest to focus on keepass.info and keepassxc.org
Are you with me? 🙂
«Discomfort or dissatisfaction with self and everything else is the kryptonite marketers have, telling us that we’re losers or less-than without the right car, the right watch or a full head of hair». - «The Disconnect Between “Happiness” and “More”» by George Hahn
What #capitalism is all about and its kryptonite:
«[...] Quite the contrary. In the interest of making a profit by selling things, #happiness and contentment are the enemy. Discontent is the spark that ignites the burn and yearn for something more, something bigger, something else. It’s all about what we don’t have, where we aren’t, with whom we aren’t.» (1/2)

Apple is throwing away an absolute competitive advantage over Google (https://ar.al/notes/apple-vs-google-on-privacy-a-tale-of-absolute-competitive-advantage/). To wit: it doesn’t have an absolute competitive advantage on performance, screen resolution, …, not even usability and experience.
I’d really love to know what exactly the US government (see https://cyberlaw.stanford.edu/blog/2019/10/william-barr-and-winnie-pooh) has threatened them with to make a trillion-dollar company like Apple with a fiduciary duty to its shareholders announce (and then double-down on) this decision.

«If you’re an enterprising pedophile with a basement full of #CSAM-tainted iPhones, #Apple welcomes you to entirely exempt yourself from these scans by simply flipping the “Disable #iCloud Photos” switch, a bypass which reveals that this system was never designed to protect children, as they would have you believe».

«In 2030, you won't own any gadgets»
When you buy a device that requires proprietary #software to run, the money you hand over is an entry fee, nothing more.
