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.

TidBITS Ranks in Second Best of the Mac Web Survey

TidBITS Ranks in Second Best of the Mac Web Survey -- In the second Best of the Mac Web survey run by the Low End Mac Web site, TidBITS ranked as the 5th best rated site behind As the Apple Turns, VersionTracker, MacFixIt, and MacSurfer's Headline News. That's a significant jump for us from the first survey back in April, in which TidBITS ranked 10th. Significantly more people voted for TidBITS this time around (1,057 versus 694), probably due to our mentioning the survey in last week's issue. The survey is an unabashed popularity contest, but it is useful for learning about Macintosh sites you may not yet have discovered. [ACE]
