    I just noticed the little icon in the Finder icon in the dock indicating that I could open a program that I started on my iPad on my Mac. I start typing an email in mail on my iPad and it is one of the options showing in the Finder icon. There is also an icon for Safari.

    1. How do you go through all of the options available for handoff from the Finder icon?

    2. When I choose the Safari option, it brings me to the Dropcam website for logging in. Why would this webpage, of all of the tabs I have open on my iPad be available for handoff?

    I found this page on Apple's site and this one to be fairly informative in regards to the different apps and such that work with Handoff. I'm not sure if that's what you were looking for, but it sheds a little light on it. Handoff has been a little spotty for me doesn't always work right. As far as your Safari/Dropcam question, hard to say. Is it the most recent tab you had open maybe? I was under the impression that Handoff on Safari was supposed to bring up the page you were looking at most recently.
