See All Your Books in iBooks

The iBooks app for iOS lets you assign your books to different collections, but does not have any obvious way for you to see all of your books, regardless of the collection you have put them in. There is, however, a workaround that can show you just about all of your books at once: reveal the search field at the top of any collection in iBooks and type a single space into that field.

With this search, iBooks lists all of the books that have a space either in the title of the book or in the author's name. Other than the rare book that has a one-word title and a single-name author, you end up with a list of all of your books.

WebSTAR 3.0.2 Update Released

Send Article to a Friend

WebSTAR 3.0.2 Update Released -- StarNine Technologies has released WebSTAR 3.0.2, a new version of the widely used Web server. WebSTAR 3.0.2 offers a host of under-the-hood fixes and enhancements, including significantly improved FTP and MacBinary compatibility, data cache improvements, numerous bug fixes, and workarounds for Open Transport memory leaks on PowerPC systems. WebSTAR 3.0.2 is free to WebSTAR 3.x customers, and a 12.6 MB updater will upgrade any version of WebSTAR 3.0 or 3.0.1 (including background and SSL versions) to version 3.0.2. Because updating Web server software can be complicated, be sure you have a complete backup of your current configuration and read StarNine's detailed instructions before updating. [GD]
