Apprentice 3 Available -- Following up on the promise of twice-yearly updates for its CD-ROM compilation of Mac programming and development tools (see TidBITS-263), Celestin Company recently released the third edition of its Apprentice CD. The Apprentice CD-ROM consists mainly of free and shareware development resources, source code, utilities, programming environments, and demos of popular commercial tools. Although most of the material is available elsewhere, having it all in one place (and with full indexes for Easy View, FileMaker, and On Location) makes the disk a valuable resource for programmers and the technically inclined. The materials have been updated to the latest versions available, including fully-indexed archives of valuable digests and mailing lists such as <comp.sys.mac.programmer> and the Mac Scripting Digest. Apprentice 3 is available for $35 ($25 for education users or updates from previous versions). [GD]
See All Your Books in iBooks
The iBooks app for iOS lets you assign your books to different collections, but does not have any obvious way for you to see all of your books, regardless of the collection you have put them in. There is, however, a workaround that can show you just about all of your books at once: reveal the search field at the top of any collection in iBooks and type a single space into that field.
With this search, iBooks lists all of the books that have a space either in the title of the book or in the author's name. Other than the rare book that has a one-word title and a single-name author, you end up with a list of all of your books.
