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.

Mac OS X 10.4.10 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Boldly marching into double-digit version number territory, Apple has released Mac OS X 10.4.10, a maintenance update that adds more RAW image support, fixes issues with Bluetooth and USB, and addresses a few other issues. The delta update from 10.4.9 is available via Software Update or it can be downloaded for Intel-based Macs (a 72 MB download) and PowerPC-based Macs (a 25 MB download). A combo update (weighing in at a 293 MB for Intel Macs and 165 MB for PowerPC Macs) updates any version of Mac OS X 10.4.

This new version of Tiger fixes a problem where a Bluetooth headset may not be correctly removed from Bluetooth preferences, improves reliability when using the Apple Remote after waking from sleep and when mounting external USB drives, and resolves an issue with the TomTom GO 910 GPS navigation device on Intel-based Macs. It also fixes distortion and discoloration of DNG images, and adds support for RAW images created by the following cameras: Panasonic DMC-LX1, Panasonic DMC-LX2, Leica M8, Leica D-LUX 2, Leica D-LUX 3, Fuji S5 Pro, Nikon D40x, and Canon EOS 1D Mk III. The release notes also claim improved compatibility with Mathematica 6 on 64-bit Macs and a fix for a specific issue with dropped frames while importing video from a DV camera, among other changes.

Mac OS X Server 10.4.10 has also been released as a delta update for PowerPC-based Macs (a 58 MB download), and as a combo update in universal (391 MB download) and PowerPC (218 MB download) versions.
