JohnMHoyt Apple, Business, Connectivity, Entertainment and Arts, Fun Stuff, iPad, John M. Hoyt's Personal Stuff, Mac, Microsoft, Pamela M. Hoyt's Personal Stuff, Technology, Windows Leave a Comment

A common scene at any live music event is to see the band on a stage, and somewhere in the middle of the listening area a table setup with a mixing console eating up precious landscape.

Our band, The Dockside Band, has been making the most of technology since we have been performing out, and apparently, some people have been taking note.

Secure IT Alert: iPad 2 w/ IOS 5 security flaw could expose sensitive information

JohnMHoyt Apple, Computer Security, iPad, iPhone, Secure IT Alert, security Leave a Comment

It was brought to my attention a bit ago by a client that the iPad 2 with IOS 5 has a flaw that allows the last screen accessed before the Smart Cover lock was engaged.

My brother, Rick Hoyt, is employed by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in Arkansas and he brought it to my attention that their department is the first in the nation to produce an iPhone app… This thing is so cool that I loaded it on my iPad so I could see what was going on where I used to live! …
