Move to Top Shortcut in iPhone

On an iPhone, flicking all the way back up to the top of a long Web page can be a real drag. Instead, a single tap on the status bar moves you to the top of a page. (The status bar is where the clock is.) This tip also works in other apps, like Mail, Contacts, etc.

30 Years after Macintosh, Viewed through iPhone

Send Article to a Friend

On 24 January 2014, Apple shot a remarkable commercial to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Macintosh. The company sent 15 camera crews around the world to shoot the footage over the course of 36 hours, all on the iPhone 5s. The ad shows a number of scenes that would have been science fiction 30 years ago: a man configuring his artificial limbs with an iPhone, children controlling robots with a MacBook, and another guy flying multiple drones via sensors on his arms, wired into a MacBook. The video was directed by Jake Scott, son of legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott, who directed the original “1984” ad. Be sure to read the story of how it was made after the video plays.favicon follow link

And no one bothers to ask why Apple became what it was against in that TV commercial. 1984? Use only what Apple says, buy only what it sells or says you can buy, hold the product a certain way and lets not forget, you are the problem, not the device.
Sounds like an antenna-gate person. Get a free protective case or buy iphone 5.

Ridley Scott's 1984 Macintosh commercial needed no further explanation. Would have been helpful to provide a description of all of the scenes in the 30th anniversary commercial for "the rest of us."
