7 settings new iPad owners should change right now – CNET

New iPad? It’s a pretty easy device to use, but certain aspects can be confusing. For example, if you also have an iPhone, don’t be surprised if your new tablet suddenly starts ringing the next time you get a phone call.

That’s a feature, not a flaw, but you may prefer to keep your calls away from your iPad. So consider changing that setting, along with these 6 others:

General Order 26 | Northern District of New York | United States District Court

Attention Northern District of New York Federal Bar:   

General Order #26  has been amended effective May 23, 2016.

In the Matter of Courthouse Security and Limitations on the use of Electronic Devices within United States Courthouses in the Northern District of New York 

The main change to the General Order is below. The intent is to help expedite the screening of members of the bar. While it does not exempt attorneys from the security screening at the front entrance to the courthouse, attorneys who are entering the building for a court proceeding who present their NYS Unified Court System ID to the Court Security Officer will no longer need to surrender their electronic devices at the security station. 

**********

Screening and Search. All persons entering a federal courthouse in this district and all items carried by them are subject to appropriate screening and search by a United States Marshal, Court Security Officer, or any law enforcement officer. Persons may be requested to provide identification and to state the nature of their business in the courthouse. Anyone refusing to cooperate with these security measures may be denied entrance to the courthouse. Members of the Northern District Bar that present a valid New York State Court System Identification appearing for a proceeding before the Court will be allowed to retain their cell phones and computers following screening.

**********

This General Order is posted on our web-site at:

Thank you,

Lawrence K. Baerman, Clerk of Court

The best iOS apps for taking notes with Apple Pencil + iPad Pro | 9to5Mac

Chance Miller – 2 days ago  @ChanceHMiller

I was skeptical of the Apple Pencil when it was first announced, as I assumed it would just be the same as the tacky styluses third-parties had been making for years, but after using it I’ve realized just how wrong I was. The thing that I noticed very early on in my time with the Apple Pencil though, was how crazy good the palm rejection is. Writing with an Apple Pencil on an iPad Pro is nearly as easy as writing on actual paper. As a student, this is a huge factor for me when it comes to note taking, so I decided to dive a little deeper into the apps on iOS that are made for taking notes and are optimized for iPad Pro. Here are some of the ones I would recommend…

MacMost Night Shift

The new Night Shift feature in iOS 9.3 changes the color of your iPad and iPhone’s screen to fit studies that show that a warmer display will make it easier for some people to get to sleep. You can try Night Shift with your iOS device if you read in bed at night to see if it helps you.

Each of the tips that follow below, however, are completely hidden. There is no indication that these functions exist in iOS, and we guarantee that most users don’t know about them. In fact, we also guarantee that even the savviest iPhone owners among you will find at least one or two things you didn’t already know. In fact, ran this list past a friend who works at Apple and there were a few things that even he didn’t know.

Review: Apple Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro | iLounge

iLounge‘s PHIL DZIKIY @PHILDZIKIY sums up his review of the Apple Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro:

***

When looking at Apple’s Smart Keyboard as a total package, it hits the mark in a number of ways: fit, stand/cover versatility, materials, and design are all top-rate. But if you don’t actually enjoy the experience of typing, these attributes seem decidedly minor. Not to mention that $169 is no small sum for such an accessory. When choosing between the only two Smart Connector keyboard options right now, Logitech’s Create is bulkier and less elegant, but it also offers a better typing experience — with bouncy, backlit keys — at a slightly lower price. One of our editors compared his brief experience with Smart Keyboard to the keys found in Apple’s 12″ MacBook — if you don’t mind those MacBook keys, you’ll probably be OK with Smart Keyboard.
