How to Make an iPhone Screenshot

Want to take a screenshot of something on your iPhone or iPod touch? Press the Home button and Power button briefly at the same time, and an image of your screen will be saved to the Photos app (and will sync with iPhoto when you next connect). Don't hold the buttons too long or your device will either power down or reboot.

Month of Apple Sales: Getting Around to It -- We're tired of the childish "Hey, look at me while I break this!" Month of Apple Bugs project, so here's a constructive alternative: four weekly "Month of Apple Sales" offers on our Mac-specific Take Control ebooks throughout the month of February.

First up is the Getting Around to It sale, in which we invite you to consider the state of your New Year's resolutions after a month. If one of them was to bring your Mac up to date with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, we're giving you a good reason to spend some of the slow, early months of the year upgrading to Tiger and coming up to speed. That way, you'll be in a position to watch Leopard's release and first few months of upgrades from the safety of Tiger's stable and mature vantage point. The reason? A whopping 60 percent discount on the following big bundle of 7 ebooks, giving you over 700 pages of essential information about Tiger for only $22 (normally $55).

  • Take Control of Upgrading to Tiger
  • Take Control of Customizing Tiger
  • Take Control of Users & Accounts in Tiger
  • Take Control of Syncing in Tiger
  • Take Control of Passwords in Mac OS X
  • Take Control of Maintaining Your Mac
  • Take Control of Your AirPort Network

To take advantage of this discount, just purchase from the Month of Apple Sales: Getting Around to It page.

And yes, if you want the bundle but already own one of these books, feel free to give your extra copy to a friend. Stay tuned for next week's sale!
