Could you recite all your passwords by memory or do you forget some at times (don't we all?) How strong are your passwords -- could a hacker retrieve your personal and financial information? The latest NNT report discusses this in "Passports Are A Necessary Pain." If you haven't received a copy, you can view it online at


And, get a special deal on the best password manager/form filler just from reading that report!

01. PILL IDENTIFIER at http://www.drugs.com/pill_identification.html says it best: "Worried about those capsules you found in your teenager's room? Not sure about some of those leftover pills still in the bathroom cabinet? There's a good chance that our Pill Identification Wizard can help you match size, shape, colour... then lead you to the detailed description in our drugs database.... As a general rule, we should all periodically check our medicine cabinets for any expired, re-bottled, or unidentified pills. The safest bet is to keep all medications in their original bottles or packets, with pertinent labeling and instructions attached, to avoid confusion and mistakes."

02. TWITTONARY. You'll need this at http://www.twittonary.com if you're into Twittering. It explains various Twitter-related words and you can search the entire Twitter Dictionary.

03. DRIVESAFE.LY is a mobile application that reads text (SMS) messages and emails aloud in real time and automatically responds without drivers touching the mobile phone. Download free at http://www.drivesafe.ly/ .
