Thoughts on Apple’s Messages

Security Chase

Go to your Chase account and enter your password. Now log out, and enter your password with a different pattern of capitalization. So if your password was Password, now try pASSWORD. I bet you it worked and Chase still let you into your account.

Why My App Sucked And Why I Won’t Make The Same Mistakes Again

When you’re learning, it’s important to make mistakes, that’s how you learn.
