I’m not a huge podcast listener. I find that they can be rather hit and miss; ones which I initially enjoy can quickly become irritating for reasons I can’t quite work out. ‘In our time’ went that way, so I’m looking at you, Melvyn Bragg. What should be a good listen ended up irking me. Something about its overly cheery, bumbling Londonness wound me up in the end.
My podcast subscriptions are down to four and there are only two to which I listen immediately after release: The Tuesday Club in which Alan Davies and his mates go on about Arsenal for an hour each week or so, and Mac Power Users where two American lawyers explain their use of their Macs and iOS devices in excruciating and fascinating detail. As a 20+ year full time Mac user, I thought I knew quite a bit of stuff, but I’ve learned a lot from these two presenters.
So, I was excited like a kid getting through to Noel Edmonds on Swap Shop when I received e-mails from both of them this week. Given their password management methods (leaving everything do a password management program called 1Password) it occurred to me that you can’t actually leave everything to this one program. You need to remember the password for 1Password for example. So, in the feedback bit of their website I enquired about this and they each took the trouble to write to me (or ‘write me’ as they routinely say it on the podcast).
They seem to think that you need to actually remember the password for 1Password, for Dropbox (if you use it to sync your passwords) and your Apple ID. I reckon you need to remember your e-mail password too.
