LinkedIn users were warned to change passwords this week after a hacker advertised 100 million sets of log in details for sale. The usernames and passwords are thought to be related to a breach four years ago which was assumed to have revealed a far smaller set of data.

Naturally, it’s good practice to change passwords regularly regardless of security breaches. Take a look at our password generator for inspiration on creating the best secure and memorable passwords for your online accounts!

Are you a serial spender? If, like me, you cross your fingers every time you check your bank balance, UK firm Intelligent Environments may have an innovation for you. By linking the Pavlock wristband to your bank account, you can experience the physical pain of overspending as a 255 volt shock is delivered every time your balance goes below a certain figure.

This is an extreme way to tighten the purse strings and, if I’m honest, I’d just refuse to wear it after one or two shocks. However, for those with a serious shopping addiction and true determination it could be an important investment!

Can you think of a sweet treat beginning with N? There’s nougat, nuts and Neapolitan ice cream but as far as this letter of the alphabet goes, Google are drawing a blank on the name for the upcoming Android N update.

Following on from Lollipop and Marshmallow, a tasty treat beginning with N is needed so the baton is being passed onto the public. Simply suggest a name on their website or via Twitter using the hashtag #NameAndroidN and you could be seeing your suggestion rolled out to Android devices. Our money is on Android Nougat!
