Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

 
 

Apple Sells Three Million iPads in Three Days

Send Article to a Friend

Apple announced that it sold three million Wi-Fi-only iPads in the three days after the launch of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad, twice the number of Wi-Fi-only units of the third-generation iPad that were sold in its first weekend in March 2012. That means that Apple sold 1.5 million each of the Wi-Fi-only and cellular models of the third-generation iPad (which sold three million all told in that first weekend), and bodes well for sales of the cellular models of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad when those start in a few weeks.favicon follow link
