Disinfect Your Keyboard

Keyboards, particularly those shared by multiple people, harbor huge quantities of bacteria. If you want to reduce the chances of picking up your co-worker's cold, you can disinfect your keyboard with disinfecting wipes. To avoid damage to the keyboard, be sure to:

  • Unplug the keyboard before disinfecting it.
  • Squeeze out any excess liquids from the cloth to avoid liquid dripping into the keyboard.
  • Don't let any liquid from the wipe sit for long periods of time on the keyboard.
  • Don't scrub the keyboard, just lightly wipe down. Rubbing too hard leaves behind more lint.
  • Avoid cleansing cloths that contain bleach.

Smile has released PDFpen 5.7 and PDFpenPro 5.7, both of which add support for accessing PDF files using iCloud. With these latest releases, you can open, view, move, rename, delete, and preview PDF files stored on iCloud. If you purchased either version of PDFpen from the Mac App Store, the keys to your iCloud kingdom are already built in to the 5.7 release. However, if you purchased either application through Smile directly, you’ll also need to buy the $0.99 PDFpen Cloud Access from the Mac App Store. Additionally, Smile released PDFpen for iPad 1.0 (available from the App Store for $9.99), which provides many of the same PDF-manipulation features of the desktop software as well as the new iCloud integration. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 41.6 MB)
