Clubhouse promises fix after audio insecurely streamed from third-party website

A Quick link from The Verge by Jon Porter to follow up my story about why I am done with Clubhouse. Turns out Clubhouse had another incident with private information where someone was able to share several streams of audio on a third-party website.

Things I liked

These teachers believe the future of education lies with the iPad

Some magnificent reporting from Daniel Bader at iMore about educators and how the iPad can integrate with education. My wife is a teacher, and I am a sucker for when I can share something with her that interests both of us.

Craft - The Best Notes App for the Apple Ecosystem

Christopher Lawley shares his setup and tips all about the new native notes app Craft. This was something that I was waiting on the edge of my seat for. I wanted to improve my setup and usage of the new notes app and I knew that Christopher was the best person for the job.

Hardware microphone disconnect

A quick little Apple Support page about how iPads made in 2020 will automatically shut off the mic when you close an Apple supported case.

When an MFi-compliant case (including those sold by Apple) is attached to the iPad and closed, the microphone is disconnected in hardware, preventing microphone audio data being made available to any software—even with root or kernel privileges in iPadOS, or any device firmware.

iPad production in India a step closer as incentives approved

Ben Lovejoy from 9to5Mac talks about the most recent news about Apple moving iPad production to India.

I don’t normally follow news like this, but I think that this India move is going to be something we see more news about in the coming months. I hope that it will allow Apple to increase production, but in truth I worry this will lower the amount of iPads made in the next year or two.

Another quick reminder for those that made it this far, you can send me your comments, articles, videos, links, and more at contact[at]tablethabit[dot]com or over on Twitter @iamJeffPerry.
