Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

Why iPad Sales Are Slowing

Send Article to a Friend

The iPad was Apple’s fastest growing product for several years, but sales have slowed, and analyst Ben Bajarin offers a few possible reasons why. He focuses on the point that, while they can do many things well, there’s little tablets can do that a computer or smartphone can’t do as well or better. The iPad debuted in 2010, which is often cited as the beginning of the end of PC sales, but Bajarin notes that was also about the time smartphones went mainstream, which might instead explain the decline in PC sales.favicon follow link

Well, one reason I haven't replaced my iPad 3 is due to iOS 7. If they'd dump the sucky interface and go back to the beautiful earlier one, I'd by a new iPad in a heartbeat, most likely a Mini with Retina. I respect Jony Ives as a HARDWARE designer, but for software he is in way over his head. It is sad to see such arrogance.
