Crazy iOS8 question. How do you stop your iPad from alerting you when your iPhone is ringing?

One noisemaker is enough! Don’t need both ringing.  It’s gonna drive me batty. I can’t find the preference.

Up until 3:30 AM last night rolling out a site ...

You’ll excuse me, I hope, if I sort of melt around the internet today. Links, if I have any brainpower left. I’m flipping over to 55 next month. These late/all nighters really, really, really hurt.

CNet: Apple trims prices on iCloud storage plans.

But iCloud is competitive when compared with such sites as Dropbox and Amazon Cloud Drive.” Um, no. Who wrote this? Dropbox is 9.99/mo for 1TB. iCloud clocks in at 19.99/mo. Why double, Apple?

Envato Market: Serious Vulnerability in WordPress Plugin sold via Envato Market.

These are highly popular plugins sold both directly on CodeCanyon and also indirectly through inclusion in many popular WordPress themes sold on ThemeForest. As a result, we expect numerous websites to potentially be at risk and are moving to help buyers secure their sites immediately.” Check your WP installs today, esp. if you’re using a commercial theme. Plugins get used by others, not necessarily in this marketplace.

Twitpic is shutting down.

“During the “published for opposition” phase of the trademark is when Twitter reached out to our counsel and implied we could be denied access to their API if we did not give up our mark. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to fend off a large company like Twitter to maintain our mark which we believe whole heartedly is rightfully ours. Therefore, we have decided to shut down Twitpic.”  Not nice.

Twibble.io - A Better RSS feed to Twitter Service.

Hmmm. IFTTT has been rock-solid for me (every fifteen minutes, whatever is new on the blog gets sent to Twitter). This still may be worth a look, for scheduling abilities alone. If anyone decides to use it, a quick overview in the comments would be appreciated.

Techdirt: Thomson Reuters Thinks Not Responding To Their Email Means You’ve Freely Licensed All Your

So it’s just bizarre and surprising that media giant Thomson Reuters apparently believes that it can license whatever content it wants by merely sending an email and saying that a refusal to respond will be taken as consent that it can use your content.” !@&^#$$% Bloggers, beware. That puts a whole new exponential spin on ‘big grab’.
