LastPass – The Best Password Manager Ever

Specifically, LastPass is the best Password Manager ever, for everyone and everybody inhabiting this earth and have a password that needs to be remembered.

A year and a bit ago, I made a post on using 1Password and LastPass together for a better (and free) experience to having your precious deets on devices. I guess that post is now irrelevant considering that in November 2016, LastPass declared that you could access your passwords on all devices for free.

I’ve definitely joined late to this party, and realisation about this feature existing pretty much dazzled my mind yesterday whilst clearing things up. Upon realisation I also went nuts and deleted my 1Password account immediately.

I think it’s awesome. I’ve always had this thought that having such important details should be accessible to any device for free, it was only a logical albeit a risky financial move too. But they bit that damn bullet. Now I love LastPass even more, probably more than I should love a software. (it’s 2017 – I knew I’d succumb to this someday)

My main fear is that it’s too good to be true, you’re getting a whole lot more goodness that isn’t offered in most password managers and it makes me wonder what their main income is. What’s the catch?

LASTPASS PRICING: an absolute steal.

By the looks of their pricing scheme, it seems that what you get for Premium seems good for the digital frenzy worker so there’s a chance a lot of people choose that plan. There’s also a Team and Business plan which might be popular for companies, and this could explain why we’re getting free access on all devices. But it could be anything really.

Or that they’re just awesome. Probably this reason.


Here’s some things to keep in mind:

  • LastPass now enables access to your passwords on all devices for free
  • This as a result makes it awesome
  • This also makes my blog post irrelevant.
  • You’ll never see that blog again.
The Stupid Reality of Terrorism - Header

The stupid reality of terrorism.

Hearing the recent news on terrorism has really been a shock to everyone, and I think I’ve rejected this whole concept because it’s genuinely just atrocious but this is all nothing more than culling. This is the brief.

  1. Terrorism is stupid
  2. Being “tougher” on terrorism is practically impossible
  3. Terrorism won’t stop.

I’ll go through these points clearly with structured paragraphs that will definitely not turn into a rant.

1. Terrorism is stupid

Indeed it is. Think about it, you’re slaughtering innocent lives of people you never knew, people who had families, lifelong plans and the same raw human emotions you once felt and experienced for yourself, and you destroyed that for what?

To push forward your stupidly misguided political agendas? Religion takes no part in slaughter, your mentality does. It’s worth nothing. Nothing.

Islam has nothing to do with this either, Islam doesn’t promote this. Islam doesn’t permit the butchering of unarmed harmless people. You’re just being a self-righteous monster killing people who did nothing to you. Thinking your life is superior or worth more than someone else’s is disgusting, no human should ever determine another’s death.

2. Being “tougher” on terrorism is practically impossible

Look Theresa, ISIS is causing quite the havoc. Cracking down on immigration and making international contact difficult is not gonna cut it. The only physical form of ISIS are the idiots in Syria right now, but in the Western world? It’s a movement.

Anyone can really “join” as there isn’t any formal structure behind it. Not that we know of. Literally anybody can run into the streets and preach whatever misguided ideologies you want, as long as they attract attention through means of violence. There can be groups of people either connected by family, work, friends, a community or just one rogue person.

Anyone can do it, and I believe the people who recruit are found worldwide but that too has no formal structure. It’s led to a stage where one single person could wreak havoc and if the act is not explained, we’ll just assume ISIS did it.

(Please do tell me if I’m wrong, I’ve just personally seen nothing that proves otherwise.)

So whilst people from abroad may be an issue, I believe we are slightly prejudiced here. There are internal issues within the country with those who suddenly change their ways, and we must prioritise looking more into that. And if you think about it, it’s stupid because they believe they have a message for “the greater good”, but they’re not really reminding us of that are they?

ISIS definitely exists. It’s just impossible to tackle because it’s not just a bunch of idiots in Syria, there are people everywhere being brainwashed.

3. Terrorism won’t stop.

It really won’t. Anyone can do it, they might do it because they think they’ll die a martyr and do it for “the greater good”.

“Some may do it because they think it’s the right thing.
Some just want to conquer the world with their opinion.
Some think they are the right ones and others who don’t agree must die.
Some just think that scaring the authorities must mean that it is for good reason.

Some are just gullible enough to fall into that trap because they want a calling in life.
A meaning in life.
Something they can say that matters to them and is worth dying for.
They want to grasp their destiny and feel worth,
and that’s when the lives of others become expendable.”

It’s a tragic and upsetting mentality. And it’s become so normalised that anyone can feel this way and it would never be noticed.

What do we do now?

The underlying issue is that this idea is hardwired into people’s brains. We need more than political figures making empty promises to end terrorism. We need more than just thoughts and prayers to those who are affected. Your thoughts and prayers aren’t going to save another person’s life.

At this point I’m incredibly depressed thinking about the why of terrorism. But know this: fear never works, it only fires up Trump, and it only wards people away. So try it. We’ll be 4 steps ahead of you.



(apologies for any atrocious grammar or repetitive of the word stupid, it’s late at night and I get really passionate for some reason in the night – Nishat)

this blog, and how i feels.

Okay. Ever since I started this blog, I kind of wanted to experiment and play around with it, see how far I can go. It’s been 6 months, and I couldn’t be any happier.

With this sort of stuff, I get way too over-the-top and be a perfectionist when it comes to design and writing because I know I can do better. But recently, I just figured out the look I want on this website (which is rare taking into account my constant uncertainty when it comes to anything) and I smiled intensely, like a real goofball.

I never smile when I’m working on a project controlled by me. I never smile. (yes i do, don’t worry.)

But I feel good about this. Usually when I’m on a client job, I’m never happy about how my work looks, though my customers tend to be, and it leaves me on a bad note. With this blog, I feel otherwise. I feel…


I feel like this is a beginning of a beautiful digital era.


The never-ending battle of games

Though the game medium has existed for a mere 50 years, it’s really made its stand in history with incredible visuals, immersive gameplay and unconventional plots. For the pre-2000 years, that was revolutionary.

But when the first GTA game released, it sparked a lot of controversy due to it’s gory pixelated violence. Games were breaking a wall of moral beliefs; introducing you to “what-if” situations. You had complete control of your choices and that still causes concern about gaming today.

A lot of shocking scenes in games had you question our beliefs, like the “No Russian” chapter in COD. The fact that you had a choice to shoot someone and you did ignited a war between gamers and overprotective mums.

The audacity the developers had to place these graphic scenes caused a decrease in revenue and just fuelled more hatred and discussion whether there should be some rules to regulate these types of games.

The fact that 8 year olds play COD and scream their heads off somehow represents the whole gaming community. It gives a good enough reason for your average white mom to say no and spit hate towards this whole industry.

Yeah, kids shouldn’t be doing that. But it doesn’t mean that you aim for the whole damn art of games. There is a lot more to this art form, the beauty of the soundtracks and visuals define a game, not the players. Penn says it best when he shuts down a bunch of really badly-informed mothers blaming violence on video games.

There are some truly moving games, and despite the graphics and the immersive effect it has on us. People watching gamers think it’s rather immature and just plain stupid. Play something like The Last Of Us, the Uncharted series, Telltale’s Walking Dead series or Red Dead Redemption. Violent games, sure. Emotional games? Hell yeah.

Sometimes it doesn’t even take a good linear story-based game to affect someone, it’s also the little things, like the button mechanics. A game like Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (the other versions suck) has really convenient and not too simplified parkour and combat mechanics and it honestly makes the whole game a joy to play.

I mean, the goal in AC is to be stealthy but if you’re playing for the thrill, fighting 10 guards head on will satiate that thirst.

But there’s a lot more beyond the game than just killing, believe me. If you’re skeptical, play one of the games I mentioned above otherwise you can leave now.


Photography = Time + Money

Photography is a really expensive hobby that you have to invest tons of hours into. I feel that people underestimate that, and aren’t prepared to go through those hardships. But then again, I don’t blame them. There is work, school, family basically life smacking you in the face. It sucks, and I don’t think you could ever claim yourself to be a true photographer because there are no standards like that (in my opinion).

Even the simplest of things can spiral out of control, like getting a good camera bag.

sees a really nice bag, finds out it’s £140. oh well. nevermind.


How to spot fake reviews on Amazon

In a land abundant of liars, fake reviews and misrepresentations, a ray of hope slices through darkness. The path in the Amazon rainforest is a beautiful one, if you don’t look behind at the snarling goblins. Some do, however, and they consequently fall into a pit of scams and an irritating refund policy is required to climb back out.

But the torch of FakeSpot prompts the creatures to leave in fear.

FakeSpot is pretty much a website where you paste an Amazon URL into the search bar and detect whether the product or reviews are real or not. It does this by thoroughly scanning each reviewer’s previous inspections and boom, it’s given a grade – A being not fake, F meaning hell yeah, it’s fake.

*cue angelic music*

This is a lifesaver for those cheapskates (or normal people) that value their money as if it were their organs. Once it finishes its analysis, they give you a brief, helpful summary of what people have said about the product and even makes a word map.

So be aware the next time you delve into the Amazon Rainforest for snorkelling gear. You may be submerged in falsehood, deceit and, dare I say it, waste your money.
