August 9, 2014 — Rob Dinuzzo, Stephen Baker, and Dann Berg

We present Rob Dinuzzo, Marketing Manager for RoboForm, a password manager app, who will discuss the recent report that a Russian crime ring has somehow amassed a collection of 1.2 billion usernames and password combinations along with 500 million email addresses. How do you protect yourself and your passwords from this intrusion?

You’ll also hear from Stephen Baker, Vice President for Industry Analysis at the NPD Group, who will cover the state of the smartphone market, why 3D TV failed, the rise of set-top boxes, why iPad sales are flagging, the recent improvement in PC sales, and why he’s not too impressed with the Apple/IBM deal.

Tech blogger Dann Berg discusses the OS X Yosemite public beta, his efforts to install the iOS 8 beta on a iPad mini, why he believes the patent laws need to be completely overhauled, and whether he’d buy an iWatch if Apple releases such a device.
