Just before Christmas, my Dell laptop took a dirt nap. Luckily, I had backups and I did finally manage to boot the thing in safe mode so I could copy files over onto my new computer. It wasn’t until I started using my new laptop that I realized how many sites I use frequently have passwords – and how many of those remembered the passwords for me. I’ve had some trouble trying to remember all my passwords that could have been prevented if I had used something like The Password Vault from Hammacher Schlemmer. The Password Vault can store information for up to 400 accounts, and it protects that information with a password. There’s a slide-out keyboard , an LCD display, and flash memory to retain your information even while the CR2032 battery is being changed. The Password Vault is $49.99 and ships later this month.
