Pick an apple! 
 
iTunes Apps Tab in Landscape?

If your iPad is locked in landscape orientation when in the charging dock, apps in the Apps tab of iTunes will display in landscape orientation. (This also occurs when your iPad is not in the dock but connected to iTunes via the charging cable while in landscape orientation).

Myths of the Net

Send Article to a Friend

Myths of the Net -- Ken Lager <klager@pipeline.com> points us to a good resource for debunking stories like the AOL 4.0 rumor we lambasted last issue:

I have found that the best way to deal with mail warning me of a deadly computer virus is to fire up my Web browser and head on over to the Computer Virus Myths page at Rob Rosenberger's non-profit Web site. It always has the latest information to debunk all of these urban legends. Usually, I write up a reply to the sender and everyone who the message was sent to, including the information from the site as well as the address. That way, I won't have to worry about getting that same message again from mutual friends who are looking out for me.
