Apple Offers Power Mac G4 Power Supply Swap -- If you purchased a Power Mac G4 last year and wondered why Apple included a built-in jet turbine, it's time to remove your earplugs. Responding to numerous complaints about the noise produced by its 2002 Power Mac line - particularly from the professional audio and video communities - Apple has announced a Power Mac G4 Power Supply Exchange Program. For a $20 shipping and handling charge, owners of the Power Mac G4 (Mirrored Drive Doors) can receive a new power supply (including a new system fan) that operates more quietly than the original. A prepaid airbill is included for sending the original power supply back to Apple. Apple also includes directions for installing the hardware, but recommends that anyone uncomfortable performing the repair take the new components to a certified service provider (which could entail a labor fee). The program runs until 30-Jun-03. [JLC]
Move to Top Shortcut in iPhone
On an iPhone, flicking all the way back up to the top of a long Web page can be a real drag. Instead, a single tap on the status bar moves you to the top of a page. (The status bar is where the clock is.) This tip also works in other apps, like Mail, Contacts, etc.
