XKPasswd Generates Secure Pass-Phrases

Password Strength

Apart from “correct horse battery staple,” the most secure passwords aren’t words, they’re phrases. You don’t even need crazy symbols or hard-to-determine numerals (is that an l or a 1, a 0 or an O?) – just a good, longish phrase made out of words.

And now you don’t even have to make one up. Using the XKPasswd generator, based on but not associated with Randall Munroe’s amazing comic strip XKCD, you can generate secure pass phrases easily.

Interviewly Makes Reddit AMAs Look Beautiful On Your iPad

Interviewly takes these threads – where various celebs and interesting people answer questions from Reddit users – and cleans them up into something that looks more like a feature fro a Sunday magazine that a forum
thread.

Pics.io Launches In-Browser Photo Editor, But Why?

Pics.io Launches In-Browser Photo Editor, But Why?

Between your iPhone, your iPad and your Mac, it’s hard to imagine a time when you’d be online and need to edit a photo, but somehow not have access to an app like Snapseed (which has its own browser version BTW).

But should you find yourself trapped at a PC, while nestled deep in bowels of a government building that has confiscated your iPhone and iPad at the gate (to be root-kitted and infected with spyware no doubt), and with a desperate need to add some pop to that cute cat photo you found, then head for Pics.io.

Instapaper Daily Shows The Day’s Most Popular News Story

Screen Shot 2013-12-24 at 09.12.24

One of the best things about Instapaper now being owned by Betaworks is that the developers spend their time adding new features and services instead of complaining about things on their personal blogs.

And today that ethic has paid off, bringing us Instapaper Daily, a new site which shows the most popular story in Instapaper today. And of course, because Instapaper is all about reading later, you can browse back to any day in the past and see the headline story form that day, too.

Wow, the Evernote folks are on a real roll these days. Not only does the iOS app now not suck enough to use it every day, but the new Safari web clipper is good enough to make me use my Mac for browsing the web again. It’s like a combination of Skitch, Instapaper and, well, Evernote.

Editorially Adds Dropbox Export And Direct-To-WordPress Publishing

send

Editorially is a web-based text editor that I wish I used. It has a gorgeous interface, lots of great collaborative features, and now it even exports to Dropbox and WordPress, which would let me write pretty much anything I ever need to write in it.

Sadly, I have no need for collaboration, and I swore of writing anything but an email address in the browser years ago after losing work to crashes.

Change New iWork Documents Back Into Old iWork ’09 Documents With Cloud Convert

cloudconvert

CloudConvert, you will remember, is a web service that lets you convert any document from you Dropbox into pretty much any other file type that makes sense. Now, it has added support for iWork documents, letting you convert Pages documents to Word DOC and DOCX for example.

The killer for some, though, is that you can roll back your newly screwed-up iWork files to work with iWork ’09.
