Get your passwords stored in a USB Key


I'm sure most people often forget their passwords, either to your gadgets, email, social media accounts, etcetera. I think the worries of forgetting your passwords is about to end!.

Here is the solution...
The Yubikey
It's possible to forget your passwords due to the fact that you sign up for more accounts either related to work,school and so on.

However, Google is set to help fix this problem and currently experimenting with new ways to replace the password, including a tiny Yubico cryptographic card that; when slid into a USB (Universal Serial Bus) reader, it can automatically log you on to your web accounts.

How it Works


The tiny key can be used in any machine with a USB drive, and acts as a physical 'key' to unlock the user's account.
It can automatically log users in to all of their accounts, and even into their favourite websites, without ever asking for a password.

Stay tuned here for further updates.

Lance Armstrong - I didn't feel bad, I didn't think it was wrong and I didn't feel like I was cheating


Lance Armstrong spoke last night with Oprah Winfrey on his years of using performance-enhancing drugs. He admitted that he doped in some form for each of his seven Tour de France victories

He said ,
 - I view this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times
 - It carried on for as long as it did was because he 'didn't feel like
 - The definition of cheat is to gain an advantage on a rival or foe that they didn't have. I didn't view it that way. I viewed it as a level playing field.
 - It was definitely professional and it was definitely smart if you can call it that but it was very conservative, very risk averse, and very aware of what mattered.
 - While I've lived through this process ... I know the truth the truth isn’t what is out there, the truth isn’t what I said.
 - I didn't invent the culture but I didn't try to stop the culture and that's my mistake. The sport is now paying the price for that, and I am sorry for that

The International Olympic Committee sent him a letter asking him to return the bronze medal that he won in the 2000 Sydney Games.
