My iOS 8 Update Experience

So, it’s about 3:00 PM on Friday, September 19 and I just finished my iOS 8 update on my iPad.

Some numbers:

  • It took about 1 1/2 hours to download and install.
  • You have to have 5.7 GB of free space to begin the process.
  • I lost about 0.6 GB to the update.

Some thoughts:

  • After 1 long Apple logo loading screen and 1 short one, the screen goes black. Then you just have to turn the device back on. It would be nice to have some kind of warning.
  • Like many people I had to uninstall several apps to have enough free space for the update. Wow, it would be nice not to have to do this.
  • Good job Apple! When it was all said and done, it all worked as expected.

3 Steps to Producing Powerful Passwords

What do you do when that dreaded moment comes when you have to come up with another password? Maybe they are out there but I don’t know anyone who thinks coming up with passwords and remembering them is fun.

Producing Powerful Passwords

On the one hand, if you use a password that is easy to remember it will likely be easy to hack (and probably won’t meet the password requirements). On the other hand, if you use a complicated password it will be difficult to remember. Let’s take a look at how you can easily balance these two tensions by using a proven 3 step method.

In a world where you get hundreds of emails and dozens of task per day, you need a really solid system and Linenberger has nailed it. He has taken David Allen’s Getting Things Done concepts, kicked them up a notch, and worked out how to do them ninja fast in Outlook. Worth checking out.
