Today iOS 8 came out. There was a massive rush to try to install and download it. The one thing that we were not prepared for or made aware of was the need to have up to 4.7-6.9 GB of space available in order to download and install iOS 8. The reason you needed 4.7-6.9 available is that the 1.1-1.3 GB download of iOS 8 also needs to move a lot of files around during installation.

If you are like us, you might not have that much space needed on your iOS device. We’ve spent the last year downloading music, videos and apps to the point where our iPads tell us to stop. So now we need to delete some of our stuff.

Once you free up your space on your device, and back up your device, then you will be officially ready to download iOS 8. In this how-to I will discuss the two different methods to free up storage space off the device, either from the device itself, or managing the device while being connected to the computer through iTunes…

Apple Watch Update: More Details and Hands-On Impressions-David Pogue

What you also couldn’t tell in the keynote presentation was how this watch feels and sounds. It issues little vibrations of various intensities (it can control both the intensity and the rapidity of the vibration), which will have different meanings. For example, one vibration means “turn left” when you’re using GPS, and another means “turn right.” The watch is light and comfortable, and its sounds are clear and full of personality.

There’s a speaker and a microphone on the watch. You can, in fact, take and make phone calls from your wrist, Dick Tracy style. That goofy ergonomic position was first made laughable by the Samsung Gear watches, so I’m not sure how many people will use it — but you can do it if you want.

Clients aren’t spending less on legal fees. They are spending more carefully. Viewabill shows your clients that you are careful, attentive and efficient. With access to pre-bill information, your clients focus on your work. Not the invoice.

Legal services are not changing; customer service is.

With Viewabill, keeping clients informed and up-to-date during the billing cycle minimizes write offs. It also speeds up collection times by eliminating the post-invoice back-and-forth. And since your attorneys know their clients may review work-in-progress entries, time entries are entered routinely and accurately.

A little transparency goes a long way. In the “New Normal”, client service will be the difference.
