Yosemite & iOS 8 How-to: Set up and use Handoff | 9to5Mac

***

For Handoff to work, you did need to have a 2012 iMac, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac or late 2013 Mac Pro. You do need to have an iOS device running iOS 8 with Bluetooth turned on. Since Handoff works via Bluetooth, the devices do need to be within thirty feet of each other. Also, all of your Apple devices need to be signed into the same iCloud account.

Everywhere You Go, Google is Watching — and Mapping Your Location — Robert Ambrogi’s LawSites

Robert Ambrogi:

I was in Chicago this week for the Clio Cloud Conference, where I sat in horrified disbelief as keynote speaker Cindy Cohn, legal director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, described the extent of government snooping on our digital lives. As we all know, of course, it is not just the government that is tracking us. Any number of companies are gathering data about our every click and every purchase.

In case you need a reminder of this, check out your location history on Google maps. It constantly tracks your location through your mobile phone or tablet. Above you see mine for the past week, showing my travels from Massachusetts to Chicago. Where did I go while in Chicago? I just need to zoom in to see everywhere I went during my time there. I can zoom in as close as need be for details or back out for the big picture. If I click on any of the red dots, I can see the precise time and date I was at that location.

Evernote As My iPad Task Manager | iPad Insight

 

Thomas:

***

The main reason I decided to try Evernote out as a task manager is its ability to show a lot of context for a given task. When I have to “finish my expense report” it’s really helpful to be able to keep all of my PDF receipts and the expense report Excel sheet right inside of that note. That way, once the notification pops up to remind me, all I have to do is tap on the note, and all the files I need are gathered in one place for me to get right to work.

Google is hoping to lure more users of Microsoft Word onto their platform. They have recently made some changes to Google Docs that will basically convert Word’s tracked changes into Suggested Edits.

***

While you no longer have to convert Microsoft Word files to Docs (thanks to the recent Quickoffice integrations), if you do, any tracked changes in a .docx file will be automatically carried over to Docs as Suggested Edits. Once you’ve imported your changes, you can begin immediately collaborating with your colleagues in real-time.

Aperture is Dead. Long Live Photos! | ApertureExpert

 

More than you ever wanted to know about Aperture and Photos! from Joseph at Aperture expert:

On the surface, it doesn’t seem like good news, but there’s a lot more to this than a few lines of text. First, the official words.

“With the introduction of the new Photos app and iCloud Photo Library, enabling you to safely store all of your photos in iCloud and access them from anywhere, there will be no new development of Aperture. When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS X.” — Apple, Inc.

In short, Aperture as we know it is dead. So let’s take a step back and figure out what this really means, because obviously photography is far from unimportant to Apple. There are more questions than answers now than ever before, and I’ll try to come up with all the right questions and all my best answers. Call this interpretation, speculation, or clairvoyance — but here’s how I’m reading into this.

Nicole Black:  …The good news is that cloud computing use by lawyers has become much more common and as a result more jurisdictions are tackling the issue of the ethics of cloud computing. However, because of the increasing number of opinions being issued, it turns out that there were a few helpful opinions issued over the past year or so that I have not yet covered So, I figured now was as good a time as ever [for]…the decisions issued by ethics committees in Maine, Ohio and Washington.
