Look around at what your friends are using for their computers.
They’re all happily typing away on their Macs, bringing their MacBooks to the Starbucks and showing off with their little Apple sticker on the back of their minivan next to the Stick Figure Zombie Family.
But apparently, people are still not paying attention. Yet again, we’ve hearing news reports of leaked hacked passwords list, and “password” and “123456” are still at the top of the list of passwords being used.
