Confident Computing #850 - What Should I Do About the Changes to LastPass Free?

This week's articles & videos

LastPass upset a few people last week. They've announced changes to their free tier that reduces what it includes.

While that's a bad move from a publicity perspective, what does it mean if you're a current LastPass user? And what are your options if you're impacted?

This week's featured article -- What Should I Do About the Changes to LastPass Free? -- explores the details.

TEH Podcast

This week we dove into a topic that had many people scratching their heads: how can a book store take down a website? It's an amazing realization that Amazon is so much more than a bookstore, and you're probably using their services every day without even realizing it. Also, we dedicate all the "cool" this week to the amazing Mars Perseverence rover and its landing.

TEH 128: How (and why) a bookstore took down a controversial website.

Hope things are well. Thanks, as always, for being here,
