I've written before of my endless love for password managers, which make your online life infinitely easier -- to say nothing of more secure.
If you're already using one, great -- feel free to skip ahead to the bonus deals below. If not, get ready for a seriously sweet offer.
StackSocial has a lifetime subscription to PasswordBox for $9.99. Normally it's $11.99 per year.
Yep, a mere 10 bucks to solve your password hassles forever. Like Dashlane, Lastpass, and other "identity managers," PasswordBox stores and organizes your private data. Instead of having to remember dozens of passwords, you need to remember only one: the one that lets you into your secure, encrypted PasswordBox database.
The service exists as a browser extension (available for the Big Four browsers), but also offers mobile apps for Android and iOS. Needless to say, it syncs your password database across all devices, and in case you don't think it would be handy to have this information available on the go, think again. I use my mobile password manager on an almost daily basis.
In fact, PasswordBox's mobile apps bring the enviable ability to log into other mobile apps. My current manager, Dashlane, can't do that.
And on the desktop, PasswordBox performs the key duties you'd expect, including secure-password generation and login autofill. Plus, it can store credit-card info (securely, of course) to save you considerable time at store checkout pages.
If you really want to get fancy, PasswordBox can pair with the forthcoming Nymi, a biometric wristband that uses your heartbeat for authentication. Hello, future!
CNET last reviewed PasswordBox about a year ago, giving it 4.5 stars. No doubt the service has evolved even further since then. I'd say for $9.99, it's a no-brainer.
Bonus deal: Picturelife is a cloud-storage service designed specifically for sharing, syncing, and preserving your photos and videos, with automated background uploads from your computers and mobile devices. (Think: Photo Stream, but better.)
Normally you can get 5GB account for free, but for what promises to be a limited time, you can get a 30GB Picturelife account that's free for life. (During installation, you'll see only the 5GB option, but once you complete the process, your account will be upgraded to 30GB. I tried it, it works.) Ostensibly this is only for Adorama VIP members, so I'm not sure how long the link (or offer) will remain available.
Bonus deal No. 2: Could you use a few laughs? Check out the StoryBundle Devastator Humor Bundle, which gives you up to nine humor/comic books in DRM-free format. Name your own price and you'll get six titles, or pay at least $12 to get the complete collection. Looks like some really good stuff from authors that have some impressive credits (Adult Swim, "The Daily Show," The Onion, etc.).
