I agree, Kevin. In fact, this was the first topic that Brett and I discussed on today's episode of the In the News podcast. However, what we didn't mention in the episode is the point that you make that some carriers charge more for the 5G plan, which is an additional reason not to use 5G, besides saving battery life. -Jeff

I agree, Jay, that this feature would have been even more useful earlier. But it is still useful now for all of us who wear a mask when in a public area with lots of other folks around. Additionally, should we have another COVID surge as some public health officials are predicting, then of course this feature will be even more useful for a larger group of people. Fortunately, if you don't find the feature useful for yourself, you can simply keep it turned off. That way, you get the full security of regular FaceID. -Jeff

To my knowledge, each user needs a separate license. Having said that, I see that the Lit Software website mentions reaching out for site licenses: https://support.litsoftware.com/hc/en-us/articles/4409575981719-Do-you-offer-the-ability-to-make-volume-purchases- I hope that helps!

There are a number of reputable cable manufacturers, but I've had good experience with Anker cables so I would consider them. The PowerLine III is excellent if you want the traditionally, rubbery feel. https://amzn.to/3H6gHUc The ones with the Nylon cover are also very durable: https://amzn.to/3o82LjK -Jeff

Louisiana is similar. It doesn't matter where you got your vaccine; the State has a record of it, so you can take advantage of that to share your vaccination status with the Wallet app. -Jeff

Thanks, Jay! I was a big fan of many Palm models over the years. When the Treo 650 first came out, I thought it was amazing. I remember loving my Palm IIIc too. -Jeff

I guess that is what the survey found, but like you, I wonder who they surveyed. Having said that, among certain groups, these numbers probably are true. It seems like all of my kids' friends have iPhones, not Android devices. And at my law firm, almost all of the attorneys use an iPhone. -Jeff

If you can export from Notability as a PDF file, you can then import that PDF file into GoodNotes. That might be a good way to start. -Jeff

When you say "my jurisdiction" I presume you mean a court. I don't think I've ever seen a court provide an ASCII transcript, although maybe there are some out there. On the other hand, for a deposition in a private case, I would think you could get an ASCII transcript in any jurisdiction. But as for your question, no, I haven't yet tried this tip, but that's only because I haven't yet had a case in which I wanted to have a single report that covered multiple depositions, including one(s) for which I don't have the ASCII transcript. I'm sure that day will come, and when it does, it seems like this tip would work. -Jeff

It definitely sounds like this loop is too big for you, and I don't think you can cut it. Because of the way it is designed, you would be cutting the part that attaches. I suspect you will just have to try a different style that comes in a smaller size. -Jeff

Agreed. And if I try to select a city in Canada, the app says "No forecast available at this location. Please select a location within the United States." I presume that is because the developer is not paying for weather data outside of the U.S. -Jeff

That is frustrating. I'm actually wearing mine right now as I type this, and I don't se any cracks or breaking. Mine is holding its elasticity very well and doesn't show any signs of damage. I've now been using mine for about six months. I don't wear it all the time — I rotate between a few different bands — but this is definitely a band that it is regular rotation because it remains one of my favorites. I believe that Apple's watch bands are covered by a one year limited warranty. Do you have an Apple Store anywhere close to where you live? If so, you might trying going to the Apple Store in person so that they can see your problem. You might have more luck that way getting a replacement. -Jeff

Just tap the bookmark icon to hide that window. Tap that icon once to display it, tap that icon again to hide it. The icon looks like a book with pages open. That same icon triggers all three of the tabs located under it -- Bookmarks, Outlines, Annotations. -Jeff

If you subscribe to Lit Suite, you can just download ExhibitPad from the App Store. If you don't subscribe to Lit Suite and you have the former versions of the other apps because you bought them earlier, you need to subscribe to Lit Suite to get the latest versions of the apps and to get ExhibitPad. -Jeff

The icon at the bottom left of the app is called Call Log. Just tap that. -Jeff

Amy, I decided to upgrade mine now for two reasons. First, I wanted to take advantage of the discounted price, which I'm sure won't last much longer. Second, I like the new interface and the way that the new apps handle files. If the new interface doesn't matter to you, you could wait to upgrade until you see a new feature that appeals to you. Of course, at that point, the subscription will likely be more expensive. I hope this helps! -Jeff

I removed the link to that AIER report from your comment because I have a lot of questions about it. AEIR is a very strong free-market advocate and has been against most forms of government regulation, including mask mandates, for a long time. I believe that AIER also recommended that we address COVID-19 through herd immunity, which would result in a large number of unnecessary deaths. Moreover, I've seen so much science that mask mandates do make a difference. For example: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-02801-8 So we are going to just have to agree to disagree on this. -Jeff

I really consider this case mostly as a way to have protection from dropping in the first place. And for that, it is a big help. But if you drop it anyway, you are correct that this case doesn't protect the glass on the front. If you want that, you need a good screen protector or a far more robust case, but then you have to deal with the disadvantage of using those. Usability versus protection. That's the tradeoff, and no one answer is right for everyone. As for the damage that occurred to your new iPhone -- Yikes! That's horrible. Ugh. -Jeff

I have used Dropbox with Microsoft Word for iPad, but I don't recall ever seeing that error message. So I really don't have any advice for this error message. -Jeff

I don't know that any one device is truly my primary device. They all sort of supplement each other. I use a PC in my office, an iMac at home, and an iPad and iPhone wherever I am. When I'm using my iPad and I want a keyboard and mouse, I just start using them. If you want to have a keyboard with you all of the time, I have heard others say that the Magic Keyboard for iPad is rather heavy, and that device plus an iMac can weigh as much as a traditional laptop. That does take away a big iPad advantage, the fact that it is so much smaller and lighter than an iPad. -Jeff

I cannot remember if this is called "focus" or "pin" but I understand what you are trying to do. I know that you can do this on the PC and Mac because I have done so recently. But I cannot recall whether I have done this on the iPad, and I don't have an easy way to test this right now. If I do get further information on this I'll try to remember to come back to your comment and post another reply. -Jeff

Hmm. I haven't seen that particular problem before. I'm not sure what to suggest. Microsoft has some tech support forums on its own website; you might try seeing if someone over there has a fix. -Jeff

That is frustrating. I ordered mine the first week of December, so I know that they have been available for the past month. There is always high demand for accessories that work with Apple's products right after the holidays, so hopefully this is just a temporary supply issue and there will be more in stock soon. -Jeff

Hope you enjoy it. And stay safe out there. I just saw an article in the L.A. Times about how close the hospitals in your area of California are to capacity. -Jeff
