How to Make an iPhone Screenshot

Want to take a screenshot of something on your iPhone or iPod touch? Press the Home button and Power button briefly at the same time, and an image of your screen will be saved to the Photos app (and will sync with iPhoto when you next connect). Don't hold the buttons too long or your device will either power down or reboot.

PowerBook 165 & 145B Plus Pack

Send Article to a Friend

We forgot to mention the release of the PowerBook 165 a few weeks ago. It's not surprising, since it's simply a PowerBook 160 with a 33 MHz 68030 processor instead of a 25 MHz processor. Unlike the 160, the 165 comes bundled with AppleLink and AppleTalk Remote Access Client software (no server though - maybe Apple would be so nice as to set up a public ARA server?). Prices range from $1,969 to $2,579.

More recently, Apple introduced the PowerBook 145B Plus Pack, a 145B that includes an internal fax modem, TouchBASE Pro, DateBook Pro, Macintosh PC Exchange, AppleLink, and ZTerm (interesting, considering ZTerm has always been shareware). Prices range between $1,649 and $1,699, but you can only purchase the Plus Pack from mass merchants.
