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.
