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.

iMac Update 1.0 Tweaks USB

Send Article to a Friend

iMac Update 1.0 Tweaks USB -- Apple has released the first software updates for the Bondi blue boxes. The first, a new CCL modem script, forces the iMac's internal modem to connect using 33.6 Kbps or slower speeds, possibly alleviating connection problems on noisy phone lines when the modem tries to connect at 56 Kbps. You need this script only if you have significant problems connecting to an ISP using the iMac's internal modem. The larger iMac Update 1.0 improves the compatibility of the iMac's USB drivers with third-party USB peripheral devices. Although Apple recommends that all iMac users install this update, only users with USB devices other than the iMac's keyboard and mouse should notice changes. The 2.1 MB iMac Update 1.0 replaces the entire Mac OS ROM file, and you can find it on Apple's well-done iMac Support site. [GD]
