Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen

When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?

Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.

Consumer Reports Confirms iPhone 4 Antenna Flaw

Send Article to a Friend

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

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.
