Springy Dock Tricks

If you drag a file and hover over Dock icons, various useful things happen which are similar to Finder springing. If it's a window, the window un-minimizes from the Dock. If it's a stack, the corresponding folder in the Finder opens. If it's the Finder, it brings the Finder to the foreground and opens a window if one doesn't exist already. But the coolest (and most hidden) springing trick is if you hover over an application and press the Space bar, the application comes to the foreground. This is great for things like grabbing a file from somewhere to drop into a Mail composition window that's otherwise hidden. Grab the file you want, hover over the Mail icon, press the Space bar, and Mail comes to the front for you to drop the file into the compose window. Be sure that Spring-Loaded Folders and Windows is enabled in the Finder Preferences window.

Consumer Reports Confirms iPhone 4 Antenna Flaw

The redoubtable Consumer Reports says the iPhone 4 can drop connections in weak signal areas when you hold the phone with your skin covering the antenna gap on the lower left side. The non-profit organization tested three separately purchased iPhone 4s in a radio-frequency isolation chamber. The group says a little tape over the gap eliminates the problem (or you could, as Steve Jobs suggests, just not hold the phone like that). As a result of these tests, Consumer Reports does not recommend the purchase of an iPhone 4 at this time. Ouch.favicon follow link

 

Comments about Consumer Reports Confirms iPhone 4 Antenna Flaw

I got my iPhone on Friday, the day after release. So far I'm quite impressed. the signal seemed a bit temperamental on the first day, but has been perfect since the carrier settings were updated.
This phone is fantastic, everything works perfectly. personally multitasking works for me, I don't use spotify because I have always been able to listen to the music stored on the phone while I do other things such as e-mails or using some apps.

AS the iPhone 4 high-definition video clips, watch video on IPhone 4 must be cool and amazing! and I have download the iPhone 4 Video Converter from iFunia, Im ready for enjoying movies this summer on the go!
I am very pleased, it's expensive but it actually feels worth it. can't recommended it enough. Gorgeous to look at and an absolute pleasure to use.
