How to Make an iPhone Screenshot

Want to take a screenshot of something on your iPhone or iPod touch? Press the Home button and Power button briefly at the same time, and an image of your screen will be saved to the Photos app (and will sync with iPhoto when you next connect). Don't hold the buttons too long or your device will either power down or reboot.

We have just a few must-see links this week, including a music video (really!) that provides fabulous commentary on disassembling a laptop, news of the new MacTech Boot Camp conference for consultants and support professionals, and a link to an article by Glenn Fleishman about the future of Mac networking.

Laptop Disassembly Music Video -- No, really, it is a music video by Jayme Gutierrez about how hard it is to take his laptop apart to clean the fan. It’s remarkably well done, with tons of music video tropes, a catchy song, and a nod to Apple at the end (not that Mac laptops are necessarily all that easy to take apart either!). And you have to love the disclaimer: “This is not a definitive maintenance video.”

MacTech Boot Camp Offers Support Training -- Building on the success of November’s MacTech Conference, which was aimed at IT professionals and Mac developers, MacTech has announced another conference, with a twist. Called MacTech Boot Camp, it’s a single-track, hotel-based seminar designed specifically to help Mac consultants and other support professionals. A single-day event, it will be held in San Francisco on 26 January 2011, the day before the Macworld Expo show floor opens, making it easy to combine travel costs. MacTech Boot Camp costs $295 through 15 December 2010, or $495 afterward.
