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!

Virtual PC Followup

Virtual PC Followup -- In response to Glenn Fleishman's review of Virtual PC in TidBITS-397, Julie Bernstein <julie_bernstein@ls.berkeley.edu> commented that Connectix provides a program called HD Utility (in Virtual PC's Extras folder) that enables you to alter the size of hard disk images after creating them. HD Utility also converts disk images from SoftWindows and Apple PC Compatibility Card formats into Virtual PC format. Also, we forgot to mention that you can copy and paste from the Mac to Windows in Virtual PC, but not from Windows to the Mac. Information transfer in that direction must take place within files or email.

Finally, Glenn and I both discovered that with two methods of Ethernet (two cards, or a PC Card and built-in) on the same machine, Virtual PC can become confused; we alluded to this in the article. Global Village and Apple have both released updates to the Ethernet methods Glenn uses on his 3400 and with the Global Village PC Card that immediately fixed his problems. Apple's is an unsupported release candidate. [ACE]
