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!

Apple Store Books $500,000 in 12 Hours -- After removing the deadbolt on the Apple Store that we reported on last week, Apple reported placement of $500,000 in orders during its first 12 hours of business. The online store, which offers build-to-order (BTO) Power Macintosh G3 computers using WebObjects technology acquired by NeXT, shouldered 4.4 million hits between noon and midnight PST on its opening day. This is good news, of course, and interim CEO Steve Jobs appropriately gushed in his quote for Apple's press release. Now we have to wait and see if Apple's "Think Different" campaign spills over to fulfilling orders and shipping machines on time. [JLC]
