But honestly, how many of us actually own a fax machine? If you said yes, is it actually hooked up to a dedicated phone line? If you answered no to either one of those questions, or are looking for a way to cut back on expenses for your small business, an iOS app might work just as well.
I slogged through a metric ton of apps that claim to let you send a fax from your iPad or iPhone. The final contenders are a bit of a mixed bag: Some look right at home on iOS, but lack a few features or cost a lot.

It took nearly 140 years after the federal court system was established in 1789 before the first woman sat on a federal bench. Today, about one-third of all active Article III judges are women.
“If the first women judges were here today, they would rejoice at this achievement,” Justice Ginsburg said in a 1995 speech, noting that “their examples made it less difficult for the rest of us to gain appointment or election to the judiciary.” For Justice Ginsburg, these pioneer women judges were “way pavers” — in her words, “brave and bright woman who served as judges with extraordinary devotion and distinction.” In remarks published 20 years ago in the Fordham Law Review, Justice Ginsburg singled out a few of these women judges.

The standard iOS Messages app–you know, the app you use daily for trading all those text messages, photos, and videos–can do much more than you might think.

Local governments in New York cannot restrict where registered sex offenders can live, according to a ruling Tuesday by the state’s highest court.
The state Court of Appeals threw out a Nassau County law that kept all sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of a school, arguing that the state’s restrictions on those convicted of sex crimes preempt local measures.
The ruling will have statewide implications: At least 109 cities, towns and villages and 21 counties have passed local restrictions, according to the New York Civil Liberties Union, though some have been repealed or invalidated. Under New York law, only level 3 offenders and those on probation or parole are prohibited from being within 1,000 feet of school grounds or a day-care center.

Apple has taken another step toward turning iWork into a service anyone can take advantage of, similar to Google’s web-based productivity suite. The company made its iWork for iCloud apps available to anyone, regardless of whether or not they have any Apple hardware, so long as they have or sign up for an Apple ID. So far, that’s only available via the public iCloud Beta, but presumably if all goes well with the test that will roll out to the standard version of iCloud after that.
