Arrange Icons on the iPhone/iPod touch Home Screens

Unhappy with the arrangement of your icons? You can move them around as follows: First, hold down on any Home screen icon until all the icons wiggle. Now, drag the icons to their desired locations (drag left or right to get to other screens). Finally, press the physical Home button on your device. (Unlike earlier releases, iPhone Software 2.1 doesn't move just-updated apps to the end of your Home screens, so your icons should be more stationary once you've installed the update.)

Remember that you can replace Apple's default icons in the four persistent spots at the bottom of the screen with your four most-used apps!

Why Your Videos Won’t Preview in OS X 10.9 Mavericks

You might have noticed that some of your videos no longer have a Finder preview in Mavericks. Macworld’s Chris Breen discovered that Apple has deprecated many of its older codecs in favor of the iOS-compatible H.264 and MPEG-4. To watch older video files, you must convert them with QuickTime X, install Apple’s professional codecs (if you bought Final Cut Pro, Motion, or Compressor), or use a more capable app like QuickTime 7 Pro or MPlayerX.favicon follow link
