password! If not that, my personal favorite is
pa55word. Gets around the "must have a digit" requirement.

how about "1234"
edit: oops, already used.
"admin" I've seen or the person's first name "jeff"
The worst is when the password is the SAME as the username.
And of course all these are written down under the keyboard.

At my office we use 123qwe for EVERYTHING. At home I use "password."
Come to think of it I probably don't need 1password!
maybe if I had it, I would use it correctly and stop getting my identity stolen?

"google" is a bad one.
Other than that, if you use your own name or like a pet name that fails.

Here our helpdesk staff use <companyname><year> as the default admin password all over. eg tipb2009. Nice (not) !! But does help if you need to get into a machine.
Oh and of course "password" and "1234" and "admin" are always there.

Most useless password i've seen is abc123 or the persons initials and then their birthday (ex. tdd10287)

I have seen people use "qwerty", "hackme". I have also seen people use their username or the name of the site I.E. "theiphoneblog". It blows my mind.

I've got an awesome one.
I used to work at a resteraunt. I won't say the name of it and you'll see why in a minute.
Well the safe this resteraunt owned was one of those with a keypad that had letters on the numbers like a phone dial pad.
My friend who was a manager one day was in the office and I was messing with him asking what the password to the safe was, I didn't really have any intention of getting it out of him, it was just annoying.
"I bet its ______," I said (the ______ is the name of the resteraunt."
He gave me a kind of horrified look so I thought maybe they are that dumb.
I bent over and punched the name of the resteraunt into the safe and it opened. I laughed my *** off for a good hour or two after that.
The funny part is that one night a couple burglars had broken in and tried breaking into the safe. The funny thing was that the camera's never showed them trying to guess the password. They simply busted out a torch and tried to cut through the safe. They were there for 2 hours without getting in (no alarm system at this place) and they never once even considered trying to guess the combination.
So i guess the password was at least good enough to fool those idiots.

"password", "qwerty", and "god" all came to mind. Considering they've been used here "asdf" is equally as poor a choice, I'd say.

Ultimate password not to use=stevejobsisdead. This is the end of the world.

It's the same as my luggage
1-2-3-4-5? That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard of in my life! That's the kinda thing an ***** would have on his luggage!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5? That's amazing! I've got the same combination on my luggage!
Says President Skroob
Lest we forget why Mel Brooks is a genius.
And, in homage to him, I've used this password many times. It's become so lame that no one has ever come CLOSE to cracking it!
