Keep track of passwords with storage programs for Palm PDAs

Computer professionals now have to remember passwords for routers, servers, VPNs, ISPs, Web pages, and even their own ATM PIN. (Heck, my wife and I even have one for our kid's Upromise account!) And to further protect the security of these systems, you are being required to choose more complex passwords that include numbers, mixed-case letters, and even special characters. Is it any wonder that software developers have created password storage programs for Palm PDAs? The difficult question for you and your users is, "Do these programs enhance security or lower it?or have no effect on it at all"?
