A Judge’s Perspective: How Shared Calendars Can Reduce Legal Custody Issues

couple with iphone 2

I’m pleased today to present this guest post from the Honorable Joseph C. Adams, President Judge of the York County Court of Common Pleas, in York, Pennsylvania. Judge Adams is a well-respected judge, and a tech enthusiast who spearheaded the overhaul of the courtroom technology in York County. Attorneys appearing in York County now have access to cutting-edge technology in the courtroom, to help them better serve their clients.

As a family court judge, I deal with custody issues on a daily basis. One of the most frequent custody issues I have to address is the lack of communication between parents. In fact, lack of communication is what often keeps parties coming back into court. In my opinion, parents who are able to effectively communicate are, in the majority of the cases, able to work out most custody issues without the involvement of the court. That being said, some people are so bad at communication that I see them more often then some of my own family!

The Death of Aperture. Good news?

If you didn’t see the news today, Apple will be ceasing development of Aperture when the new OS X Photos app is released next year. At first blush, this seems like bad news for Aperture users. ApertureExpert has an interesting take on the news, however, that actually has me feeling hopeful for the future of the Photos app. The Photos app as a hub for your photos, with iOS-like extensions allowing any other app, including Lightroom, to interact with it? Count me in, if it comes to pass.

The Top 7 Features From WWDC

Wwdc 14 logo

Apple gave its annual keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference yesterday, announcing a bevy of new features for both iOS and Mac OS X. I was actually most excited about the Mac stuff, but iOS received some much-needed love as well. The number of websites covering WWDC is overwhelming, but that won’t stop me from listing the features that got me the most excited.

The Major News From Apple’s Last 10 WWDC Keynotes

If you’re getting excited for new hardware announcements at Apple’s  World Wide Developer Conference, you’re probably going to be disappointed. Harry McCracken takes a look back at the last decade, and reminds us of the nature of the conference, and also highlights the major announcements at each conference.

Sure, consumers are watching, and Apple hopes that they’re dazzled. But WWDC keynotes are usually the least gadget-centric events which Apple holds, and even though people who covet new Apple products pay close attention, they’re not the primary audience.

 

While that might not be surprising news to some, the article is still an interesting read for its look back at each conference, and the major announcements at each one (and the reaction to each from the press, and investors). While you’re there, take some time to check out the relaunch of Technologizer as an independent blog, after 2+ years under TIME.com’s umbrella.

Disable iMessage Before Switching Away From an iPhone . . . Or Else

A former Lifehacker editor noticed a big problem after switching from iOS to Android:

I recently switched from an iPhone to Android, and discovered shortly thereafter that my phone number was still associated with iMessage, meaning that any time someone with an iPhone tried texting me, I’d receive nothing, and they’d get a “Delivered” receipt in their Messages app as though everything were working as expected.

Help Turn Your MacBook Into a Desktop Computer With the mStand

mStandThank you, Tony Hue of LonePlacebo for helping me spend money. A couple of weeks ago, Tony wrote about the mStand, a monitor stand that almost looks like it could have been designed by Apple. I decided that I needed a stand, so I took the plunge and bought the swiveling version of the stand, the mStand 360, along with an Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad.

The Mac App Store – Doomed to Failure

Mac app store doomed

Earlier this year, I wrote about the pros and cons of buying your Mac apps from the Mac App Store. Since then, I’ve come to a firm decision – when possible I will buy my Mac apps directly from the developer, instead of from the Mac App Store. I can thank Apple and the far-reaching effects of its sandboxing policies for leading me to this decision.

And the Company With the Most Security Vulnerabilities is . . . Apple?

Security vulnerability

Prior to the Flashback malware fiasco, Apple’s platforms had a reputation for being secure. That reputation might not have been deserved, if a report from the first quarter of 2012 is to be believed. That report, which predated the discovery of the Flashback trojan, took a look at the number of vulnerabilities that major tech vendors reported. The numbers might surprise you.
