Jean Marc writes, "Like Veronica mentioned during the Jan 24th episode I tend to 1Password everything too. I've moved from an encrypted Excel sheet to trying a bunch of different types of password manager apps. What sold me on 1Pass was it's Mac + Windows bundle. I run an OSX & iOS household, but run my own computer repair business and need to keep my Windows skills. I love being able to login to my favorite support forums or do online banking from any operating system with just 2 keystrokes" ... and it stores other stuff, too!
