Decency's in the Eye of the Beholder -- An alternative to the Communications Decency Act of 1995 (see TidBITS-263) has been proposed by Senator Patrick Leahy. The Leahy bill, S.714 (called the "Child Protection, User Empowerment, and Free Expression in Interactive Media Study" bill) proposes a five month study of current law and technological capabilities surrounding access to controversial content via electronic media. At this time, this bill presents the only alternative to the Exon/Gorton Communications Decency Act, which is likely to pass without a strong show of support for Leahy's alternative. More information and, yes, an online petition can be found at the following URLs. It's worth noting that the original petition against the Communications Decency Act gathered more than 108,000 signatures. [GD]
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!
