Weekly Update from April 1st!

Last week I talked about Apple’s Continuity feature, which came bundled up in the OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 operating systems! Included in this update was a host of features such as Call Forwarding to your iPad/Mac, Hand-Off, and more!

Just to recap- I let you guys know what the off-handed square was, to the left of your Finder Icon in the Dock, and let you know what it meant and why it was there. No worries – It’s not dangerous or there to ‘mess you up’ but rather to give you the option of sharing web pages to your fellow students. Next week I’ll work on removing Continuity from the computers of those who don’t want that option turned on!

Here’s Apple’s page on Continuity, and it shares a lot of information about the new features!

Here’s the DEMO that they did that shows off the uses of the new features in Continuity!
