Once a month Rick Broida, noted cheapskate columnist, joins us in studio to talk about some of the latest cost saving/shaving issues. This time around we have a rowdy panel of tech experts to challenge him.
Gary Baker, the original Internet Advisor, and co-founder of the show.
Ed Rudel, our right hand tech expert and uber-tinkerer.
Cal Carson, Gandalf the Grey of computing and Mac Expert.
Bill Carver, “The Guy” you call when you have trouble at Quicken Loans HQ.
As I’ve said many times before, a password manager is an absolutely essential tool. That’s why I routinely share deals on products like LastPass and RoboForm Everywhere.
Although many of them offer freebie versions, those are usually limited to a desktop client, with no syncing with the Web or mobile apps. And, trust me, syncing is something you really want. I can’t tell you how often I end up needing a password or other personal info when I’m out and about.
Typically you have to pay $20 to $40 per year for the privilege, but there’s an often-overlooked gem that will cost you nothing:Norton Identity Safe. Though once part of Norton’s paid security-suite offerings, this password manager is now a standalone product — and a free one at that.
