Andrew Hoover and Joshua Caleb join in this week to discuss the importance of password selection on the web. In light of the recent Gawker user data fiasco, remember to check your login info! We discuss some tips on choosing the right passwords. Andrew manages to slip in a rant on smartphone development and progress (or the lack thereof) as we take a look at the new Samsung Nexus S. We also got a slew of app updates and more on this week’s Gigawhat!
