How To Recover a Lot of Space on Your iPhone Fast-David Pogue

 

iOS 7 makes it very easy to see what’s eating up your space — and to delete the fattest culprits to make the most room with the least effort. Here’s where you start: Open Settings, then tapGeneral, then Usage, then wait a minute or two for the list of apps to appear.

For clear, concise instructions with illustrations, read the rest of David Pogue’s “How-to” piece.

Possible To Use Office For iPad Without Office 365 Subscription | Ubergizmo

Earlier this week Microsoft finally launched Office for iPad. The popular productivity suite, made up of Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps, has landed on Apple’s tablet absolutely free, but there is a caveat. Office for iPad apps can be used for reading, viewing and presentation only. If users want the full editing and composing power, they need an Office 365 subscription. However, a loophole left open by Microsoft makes it possible to use Office for iPad without Office 365 subscription.

PLEASE NOTE WELL:  Technically this does violate limits defined by Microsoft in its EULA or end user rights agreement. While Microsoft doesn’t strictly enforce the tablet installations limit, it trusts that “users respect and understand device limits outlined in the EULA.”

How an Under-Appreciated iOS 7 Feature Will Change the World | Cult of Mac

A curious download hit Apple’s app store this week: a messaging app called FireChat.

It’s a new kind of app because it uses an iOS feature unavailable until version 7: the Multipeer Connectivity Framework. The app was developed by the crowdsourced connectivity provider Open Garden and this is their first iOS app.

The Multipeer Connectivity Framework enables users to flexibly use WiFi and Bluetooth peer-to-peer connections to chat and share photos even without an Internet connection. Big deal, right?

But here’s the really big deal — it can enable two users to chat not only without an Internet connection, but also when they are far beyond WiFi and Bluetooth range from each other — connected with a chain of peer-to-peer users between one user and a far-away Internet connection.

It’s called wireless mesh networking. And Apple has mainstreamed it in iOS 7. It’s going to change everything. Here’s why.

Apple Announces CarPlay Infotainment System-Mashable

Apple has announced CarPlay, an in-car infotainment system that lets you connect your iOS device with your car.

The new system — actually a rebranding of Apple’s “iOS in the Car” — will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show, held from Mar. 6 to 16, 2014.

CarPlay will let iPhone users make calls, access messages, listen to music or use Maps in their cars using Siri-based voice control, touch controls, or standard knobs, dials and buttons in the car. Third party apps such as Spotify, Beats Radio, Stitcher and iHeartRadio are also supported.

Did You Ever Wonder Why We Are Poking Around on our Phones all Day?-Culture Design Lab–Humin

By Joe Brewer and B. Lazlo Karafiath

Lots of jokes target the way we use our phones nowadays.  How we ignore our date to answer a text,  or keep sharing and liking and scrolling endlessly.  It’s true that most people play with their smart phones more and more and share content rather than to “talk on the phone.”  What the jokesters miss is that this is a feature not a bug!

When people are looking at their phone in public, sharing stuff, liking stuff, tweeting stuff (and looking at others’ shares, likes, and tweets) they are expressing their tribal nature.  They have found an outlet for the fundamental human drive to be in a tribe, to maintain a tribal presence, whether a factual or a fictional tribe, does not matter. Unlucky for us, we have such an imperfect piece of technology for doing this –Facebook!

***

We were recently introduced to a service that could fit this mold.  It’s called Humin and it is ramping up now.  (Thanks to CMO Lane Wood for introducing us.)  Humin could be much more then a new way to access our address book: Humin could be our tribal phone.

Apple fixes security flaw in iOS, perhaps thanks to Snowden? – iPhone J.D.

Jeff Richardson:  “…But over the weekend, there were two posts about this update byJohn Gruber of Daring Fireball (Post 1Post 2) that I thought were pretty interesting.  According to PRISM documents leaked by Edward Snowden, the NSA gained the ability to intercept encrypted iPhone traffic in October of 2012, and that’s apparently right after the bug fixed by iOS 7.0.6 was introduced.  As Gruber notes, this could mean all sorts of things.  It could mean that someone at Apple intentionally added a backdoor for the NSA.  Or it could mean that someone at Apple made a simple coding mistake but the NSA found out about it and exploited it.Or it could just be a big coincidence, but there is at least a chance that Apple has now found and fixed a security bug that had been exploited by the NSA…”

Adopting Mobile Technology-Jim Calloway

***
According to a 2013 Nielsen report, 94 percent of consumers in the U.S. have a mobile phone, and the majority of those phones are smartphones. Tablets have not reached that level of market saturation, but one market research firm estimates that tablet shipments will grow from 121 million units in 2012 to 416 million units by 2017. (Those statistics come courtesy of Robert Ambrogi’s article “As the World Goes Mobile Is Your Marketing up to Speed?” in Law Practice Magazine. It is recommended reading as a companion piece.)

Spying by N.S.A. Ally Entangled U.S. Law Firm – NYTimes.com

***

Most attorney-client conversations do not get special protections under American law from N.S.A. eavesdropping. Amid growing concerns about surveillance and hacking, the American Bar Association in 2012 revised its ethics rules to explicitly require lawyers to “make reasonable efforts” to protect confidential information from unauthorized disclosure to outsiders.

Last year, the Supreme Court, in a 5-to-4 decision, rebuffed a legal challengeto a 2008 law allowing warrantless wiretapping that was brought in part by lawyers with foreign clients they believed were likely targets of N.S.A. monitoring. The lawyers contended that the law raised risks that required them to take costly measures, like traveling overseas to meet clients, to protect sensitive communications. But the Supreme Court dismissed their fears as “speculative.”
