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.

Disinfectant 2.4

Send Article to a Friend

It's gotten so that we can't even think of good titles for this article any more. It's repetitive, we know, and there's not much we can do to make it interesting short of telling lawyer jokes (no offense to any lawyers of course, most of our lawyer jokes come from lawyer friends. "What!" you say. "These people have friends who are lawyers? And here we thought they were normal!").

In any event, there is a new version of Disinfectant. The version number is 2.4, and you should grab a copy next time it's convenient. We probably don't sound terribly alarmed and in truth we aren't. The new virus that 2.4 finds is a new strain of the ZUC B virus, which originated in Italy. We initially thought there wasn't much cause for concern, but just this week, a copy of ZUC B was found here in Ithaca, New York, USA. There are a few other minor fixes and small things that John cleaned up in 2.4 and it's worth having, in case a ZUC B virus tries to sneak into your computer. Pick it up from your favorite purveyor of free software.
