Password Protect notes in OneNote 2010

Password protection in Microsoft OneNote 2010 is designed to help keep your notes safe from prying eyes. Whether you use OneNote for class notes at school, for meeting notes at work, or for storing personal information at home, passwords play a crucial part in controlling access to those notes.

The most common scenarios for using passwords to help control access to the information in your notebooks include the following:

Personal privacy Your notebook may include a dedicated section or folder that contains personal data, such as your home address, telephone numbers, Social Security number, bank and credit card account numbers, Web site login credentials, and similar information. In this age of rising identity theft, leaving this type of information unprotected is risky business. OneNote encrypts protected notebook sections to help keep your personal information secure.

Flexible security If you use OneNote to document your life at school, at work, and at home, you’re likely to set up separate sections for each. Depending on how you want to share such information with others, you can assign different passwords to different sections.

Secured mobility Unlike a computer password, which controls access to your computer but doesn’t protect the individual files stored on it, a OneNote section password remains with your notebook file. It helps secure sections of your notebook even if your notebook file is copied to another computer or a file server, or if your computer is lost or stolen.

Chrome Web Store opening this year, Integrates Google Checkout and Apps Preview

The much anticipated Chrome Web Store will have its debut by the end of this year itself, according to Google. And Chrome Web Store’s latest feature addition include integrated Google Checkout and a new Apps Preview for developers.

Chrome Web Store
All new Google Chrome Service called Chrome Web Store will debut later this year and new features are finding its place in the Web Store at a frantic pace. New additions include a much needed Google Checkout integration and also a App Preview option for developers.

You can now sign up for a Google Checkout merchant account via your developer dashboard. If you are planning to use Chrome Web Store Payments to charge for apps, you will need to complete this setup before you can accept payments. If you already have a merchant account with Google Checkout, you will be able to associate it with your items in the store.

Signing up for Chrome Web Store Payments is currently available to developers based in the US who have a US bank account. Developers also will have the added ability to see how their app will appear in the store[See the screenshot]. “When you preview an uploaded app, you will see our new design of the app’s landing page. As before, your apps are only visible to you during the developer preview until the store launches later this year.” [via chrome blog]


Blogging from OneNote and Windows Live Writer

Onenote is pretty badass and I’m not sure I could live without it anymore.  My life would be in complete disarray without it because of the amount of notes and scribbles I make on a daily basis.  What makes it extra special for me is that with CrossOver Linux I can flawlessly run Office 2007 in Ubuntu..for the sole purpose of having Onenote.

My friend Chris at  http://chrislehr.com turned me on to Onenote’s blogging functionality, which has worked out pretty well for him especially for screenshot laden posts.  Just what I need, one more thing to aid my laziness…  However, being that my blog engine is b2evolution and we’re talking about my luck here, of course b2evolution isn’t supported.  Hopefully b2evolution can do something about this soon, because they’ve let things like this go for far too long.

So I did a little digging and found that Windows Live Writer beta DOES support b2evolution.  Woohoo.  http://windowslivewriter.spaces.live.com/ Although as soon as I make a little headway I get knocked down again.  Live Writer doesn’t support Server 2008 or x64, only Vista or XP.  I run Server 2008 on my Windows workstations at home and at the office.  So this first attempt at client blogging is a copy/paste from onenote into Live Writer in a XP virtual machine.

If I take a liking to blogging from a client b2evolution very well may get ditched for something else.
