Arrange Icons on the iPhone/iPod touch Home Screens

Unhappy with the arrangement of your icons? You can move them around as follows: First, hold down on any Home screen icon until all the icons wiggle. Now, drag the icons to their desired locations (drag left or right to get to other screens). Finally, press the physical Home button on your device. (Unlike earlier releases, iPhone Software 2.1 doesn't move just-updated apps to the end of your Home screens, so your icons should be more stationary once you've installed the update.)

Remember that you can replace Apple's default icons in the four persistent spots at the bottom of the screen with your four most-used apps!

Run Windows on a Mac with Up-to-Date Advice -- We've just released version 2.5 of "Take Control of Running Windows on a Mac," bringing this essential 148-page book completely up-to-date. It's loaded with all the details you need to run Windows on a Mac successfully with Apple's Boot Camp 1.3 beta, Parallels Desktop 3.0, the release candidate of VMware Fusion, or the free public beta of VirtualBox.

Written by best-selling author and TidBITS Senior Editor Joe Kissell, the book, which now covers both Windows XP and Vista, also includes real-world advice about installing Windows, dealing with tricky peripherals, sharing files between Windows and Mac OS X, backing up a Windows installation, avoiding Windows malware, and more. And, of course, for anyone just getting into virtualization, the $10-off coupon for Parallels Desktop 3.0 makes buying the $10 book a no-brainer.

If you already own "Take Control of Running Windows on a Mac," please note that we're offering a free update to anyone who bought it after 01-Sep-06, and a 25% discount to those who purchased before that. We've sent email with the necessary links to those people; drop us a note if you missed yours.
