    Hi there,

    I've lost my apple ID password. Now, when I go to retrieve my password, when I ask it to reset my password via Email, I NEVER get an email from Apple! So I try to answer the security questions (quite frankly, I always type random stuff in it, cause I never retrieve a password using that!), I try to remember what I had inputed. So I randomly guess for three times. Then I get locked out of the system for 8 hours. I then get THAT email address saying that I am locked for 8 hours cause I tried too mich!!!!

    What do I do?

    You are going to need to call Apple on this one.

    After calling Apple... I'd also recommend getting 1Password before you do it again.

    Username&Password Insanity on moble me etc

    This has been a crazy maker for me multiple times.
    I have onepass and it submitted the password on line and it was
    rejected as well as apple store.
    I have had to pick a new password about 4 time and it never liked the new password I would pick, finally i used a six letter word, with Capital Letter
    and NINE numbers and it finally accepted it.
    the Geeks are obsessed with username and passwords for everything and now some site have added the damn Captu code and even when U get it right it rejects you. Employment sites are doing this too just to make job seekers lives worse.
