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.

Poll Preview: QuickTime & Sherlock Interfaces

Poll Preview: QuickTime & Sherlock Interfaces -- Apple has made much of its new "stylish" interfaces for QuickTime 4.0's QuickTime Player and Sherlock 2. However, these interfaces violate Apple's own user interface conventions (try expanding the QuickTime Player window and note the lack of a collapse button in both applications) and have proved controversial in the Macintosh community. QuickTime Player could have been an anomaly, but Sherlock 2's similar interface shows that Apple is continuing the design trend. And where Apple leads, others are likely to follow. The question, then, is: do you think Apple and other developers should make their user interfaces more like QuickTime Player and Sherlock 2? Express your opinion at our home page! [ACE]
