Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

Looking Inside the iPhone 4

Send Article to a Friend

All sorts of sites like to take new gadgets apart, with photos and videos to show how it's done and what's inside. But no one does it like Blendtec with their "Will It Blend?" videos. They've blended an iPhone before, but now it's time to see if the iPhone 4's performance improvements carry over to how quickly it blends as well. And although they end up a little skimpy on benchmarking data, they've done a great job with the plotline on this episode of "Will It Blend?".

Actually, there seems to be bigger leftovers than from the 3G/3GS, and it takes much more to destroy. It is going to take a lot to destroy this thing!

No phone made by Earthmen can resist BlendTek annihilation, but this G4 iPhone put up a heck of a fight. Kudos to Apple's engineers... What next? G5 with Krell technology?
