I will, of course, file for a patent as soon as I figure out how I did it.
IP addresses were hard-coded into the software. This is never, ever done by any reputable programmer. Unless the North Koreans were blatantly advertising their actions — not at all out of the question — there is no reason to do this. But it makes me suspect that perhaps someone else did the hack and used this to point toward North Korea.
Thursday night when I got home from work, I discovered I’d left my iPad 2 in the classroom. After calling the university lost and found, I realized I’d have to take action. Now it’s about a one-hour drive from my home to work. And I wasn’t looking forward to that drive, especially since I’d already done one round-trip that day. But then I remembered “Find My iPad.”

In case you can’t read that, the forecast high for Monday was 65° while the actual current temperature was 65°. (Note for non-U.S. readers: these are Fahrenheit temperatures. Convert to Celsius as you deem appropriate.)
If there is a technology company with worse customer relations management, I don’t know who it is.
Between Cynthia Brown’s detailed instructions and help at StackOverflow you should be good to learn VBA for Excel.
While a few features are lacking (turning on word wrap in a cell, for example) this is a fully functional version of the popular Microsoft spreadsheet. I’ve given an overview of payment options and Office 365 in a previous post. Here I’ll walk through creating a typical worksheet on the iPad.
not only is Office for the iPad fully functional (even in airplane mode), the subscription to Office 365 actually might be a pretty good deal, depending on your usage. An annual subscription to Office 365 for $100 entitles you to up to five downloads of Office for the Mac (2011) and Office for Windows (2013). These are fully functional and work in offline mode. You are also entitled to five installations of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for iPad. iPhone, Android, and/or Windows Phone.
