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.

Xanadu Addresses

Send Article to a Friend

It seems that the Xanadu special issue we put out last week was quite a hit. However, at the time we didn't have complete contact information. We have gotten some more names and addresses and even email addresses. So if you read our article and wanted to know more, write to Xanadu and ask for more information. They have several brochures on the Xanadu Server in particular. [insert our standard plug about mentioning TidBITS when you contact them :-) ]
