When I set up my new iPads, I chose to link my phone number to allow messages to sync to my iPad.  I wouldn't do that again for loaner iPads.  I also wouldn't add my email account.   I deleted all personal information from the iPads.

Thanks, Janet, this is great!  I love generous reporters willing to share their knowledge!

You're welcome, Mary. 

Thanks, Janet!  Great tips.  You're right.   UGG!  During a depo the other day, my gynocologist appointment reminder popped up on screen.  Attorney said, "Hey, Lori, your gyno appointment is this Friday at 11:00."  Yuck....  I fixed that one for sure.  :)

That is what I was afraid of, Lori. 

I saw a text message pop up on the attorney's screen yesterday, and I immediately went home and changed all options so that nothing interrupts.  Thankfully the text wasn't anything too personal, but that could be so embarrassing.  

I had Do Not Disturb on and thought that would take care of everything.  I kept hearing the email beep in the middle of the night.  I think I have it covered now.  :)

I love the iPads and iCloud.  After seeing how smoothly everything runs, I am seriously thinking about switching to an Apple computer the next time I'm ready for a new one. 


Is anyone here using an Apple with Eclipse?

Janet, I'm using Case Catalyst with an Mac.  I love it.  I have to run Windows Parallel to run my Catalyst software.  The only thing I'm using Windows for is Catalyst.  I use Mac for everything else, email, everything.  I'm hooked.  Don't mean to sound like a infomercial for Apple!!!!  Beware, Eclipse might not be too happy about you using a Mac.... as in they won't help much and blame everything on Mac.  Be prepared for that...

Thanks, Lorraine!

Hi Lorraine,

I just got the Mac desktop with intel core i7. I spoke to case catalyst tech support today and asked if I can use Parallel instead of Bootcamp, and he said CC won't work with Parallel. I know I saw a post that mentioned they use Parallel with CC. Just wondering if you've had issues with running CC on your Mac. Thank you.

Thanks!  Very helpful.  I was on a video depo a couple weeks ago, and the attorney said, "Let the record reflect that it's Susan's son's last day of school tomorrow."  We all got a chuckle out of it, but I made I got really embarrassed when he said later that afternoon, "Let the record reflect that the cleaners are coming on Friday."  

If anyone is interested, here is a link to a 10-foot extension cable for your iPad charger.  It's $5.99 on Amazon.  I bought them from another company, but this is a better deal.  The ones supplied by Apple are way too short.


That is embarrassing.  I feel much better now that I have everything shut off. 

 I have the ten foot charger cables.  I keep my iPads plugged in the whole time to power cord.  Seems like iPads really go through battery quickly using realtime.
