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.

Time Management Tip #15: Eliminate Bad Clients – Legal Ease Blog

***

Being busy isn’t the same as being successful or profitable. Getting rid of bad clients makes room for you to take on additional, higher value clients – and chances are that your higher value clients will be less price sensitive. Often, you can make more money with less high value clients than you can with high volume practice filled with lower value clients.

How-to: Shave some GBs off of your iOS device so you can update to iOS 8 | 9to5Mac

By:

Sarah Guarino

We should note 1st of all that you can update your iOS device through a Mac with iTunes without having much extra space. That might be the quickest/easiest way to go 

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…
