SO, THAT HAPPENED

ASK LEO

"I would like to keep track of the hours that I work. Do you know of any apps that I could get to do this. I would like it to be iPad and iPhone if possible. I would like to keep track of two different hourly rates, overtime, holidays, bi-weekly pay periods. I would like to be able to set a default work schedule for each day and be able to tweek it from there. I have looked but was a little over whelmed with the choices. Thanks for your show and making learning fun."


ACCESSORY OF THE WEEK

"1) I have an original iPad that I use for a lot of things, including recording and taking notes during meetings. I'm looking for a bag that can become my everyday bag that can hold the iPad plus accessories PLUS the Apple Keyboard, but that isn't "casual". Help?? 2) How about a show/section that highlights apps you have covered previously that have had major updates? For instance, Auditorium Notes by App-Apps just came out (a little bumpily) with some functionality updates. Leo mentioned that app in one of the earlier shows, so I got it and I use it all the time. 3) What to do with your old iPad? Is there anything that can be done with them other than sending it into "second-hand" shops? Are there any charities that are looking for "gently-used" iPads?


EMAIL

"Leo, in episode 62 you said that only old men carry money clips. To quote Monty Python, "I'm not old, I'm 37!" I started to use a money clip a few years ago when I went to using cash only. It was much better than sticking a wallet in my back pocket and having to sit on it at work and when I drive. So thank you sir for offending your 37-year-old-male-money-clip-using demographic. Sarah is now my favorite.

Thanks and "love the show" Jeremy from Indiana"


"I am just writing to inform you guys that my iPad 2 got snatched from me on a NYC Subway a few weeks ago. Yes it may be my fault that I was reading and oblivious to my environment on the subway, but I am just writing you guys to inform my fellow NYers to be vigilant on the subway with their devices as snatching is on the rise. Unfortunately I didn't have "find my iPhone" installed, so the police or apple were not able to triangulate the device. Also I got my meniscus torn during the incident.

-Alex"
