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.

StuffIt Expander/Deluxe Updated to 7.0.3 -- Aladdin Systems has released StuffIt Expander and StuffIt Deluxe 7.0.3 for Mac OS 8.6/9.x and Mac OS X. StuffIt Expander, which is free but available only as part of the StuffIt Standard Edition bundle with DropStuff, DropZip, and DropTar, gains support for expanding RAR 3.0 archives. StuffIt Deluxe 7.0.3 shares that enhancement; squashes a few bugs; and can now browse archives in Tape Archive (.tar), Bzip2 (.tbz2), Gzip (.tgz), and compressed Tape Archive (.tar.Z) formats. All the applications feature better compression in the StuffIt X format and a new custom compression settings dialog. Note that if you're running StuffIt Deluxe 7.0 under Mac OS 8.6 or 9.x, you must first update to 7.0.1 before updating to 7.0.3; the downloads page linked below offers the necessary updater. You can find release notes in the ReadMe files that appear after installation. The StuffIt Expander update is free for everyone; the other updates are free for registered users of StuffIt Standard Edition 7.0 and StuffIt Deluxe 7.0. StuffIt Standard Edition 7.0.3 is a 5.8 MB download; StuffIt Deluxe 7.0.3 is a 17.1 MB download. [ACE]
