Well, LastPass got hacked. in hindsight, one password to rule them all makes you an easier target. Hindsight is 20/20, but also exceedingly funny. We have a rundown of non-cloud based alternatives. Samsung unveils the Infuse “4G” with AT&T, Foxconn takes suicide personally, Apple may or may not say something which is the most important thing ever, Jeff Bezos likes nuclear, and Barnes & Noble are… ooh look at Amazon over there… pretty.
- LastPass may have been compromised. There goes the best cloud based password management service.
Another one bites the dust. A cloud is no place to keep your head or your passwords. with more things getting into the cloud, this sort of thing should become more common. It’s a shame though. LastPass is probably the best. We sure could use a roundup of the best non-cloud alternatives to password management…
- LastPass Alternatives that don’t rely on the cloud.
Oh hello. Lifehacker greets us with a list of non-cloud alternatives in password management. I personally use KeePass. #smugnerd
- Samsung and AT&T introduce the Infuse 4G.
*yawn* Are we really going to let them get away with using the term “4G”? This is horseshit and you know it. But the phone is thinner than an Italian supermodel but it is HUGE at 4.5 inches AMOLED. That’s practically a doorway.
- Foxconn workers forced to sign a promise not to commit suicide due to working conditions.
This is standard. I made every Noisecast member sign something similar. Damn filthy peasants. Crippling depression and death are insufficient excuses to keep all the spoiled brats in the west waiting for their shiny iDevice. And don’t you dare call it slavery, they’re not black and us blacks have a monopoly on being victims of slavery.

- Rumor: Major iOS Mac OS announcement coming in WWDC.
At this point, let’s be honest. Steve Jobs could show up and say, “look guys! Look at the size of this booger I just picked!” and he’ll get a standing ovation. No longer resisting. Just go with the current. I’ll still drown but at least I won’t be tired when I do.
- Jeff Bezos throwing his back behind Nuclear Power.
Because he’s a smart dude. we already covered this in yesterday’s roundup. It was Bill Gates saying clever things about Nucular.
- Barnes & Noble SEC filing may reveal a new Nook-like E-reader from the Amazon competitor.
This looks interesting. The Nook was a complete success. It would be brilliant if they decided to both continue the momentum and cut Amazon off at the knees to release a full Tablet. This doesn’t look like that, it’s just interesting. Truth is, it just makes me more excited for Amazon. Indications seem to be that we will have an announcement on may 24th. Cool beans.
Well, that’s it. I’ll hit you up tomorrow. I’ll be honest, I have no special video today. I’m feeling kinda chill so I’ll leave this video. I love its sound, its feel, its energy. I just want to lay back, light up and zone out. (I don’t actually smoke):
