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!

Apple Store Security Breached in Seattle: Mission Impossible Edition

The Apple Store in Seattle's University Village mall suffered a security breach - through the roof! Thieves broke in and stole laptops that were left for repair, which will be a bummer for those who didn't heed Apple's advice to back up computers before service. One expects Apple's insurance will cover replacements for the poor Mac owners whose laptops were purloined.

The burglars set off motion detectors at 4:44 AM, but because they didn't go through the door, whoever responded - the article doesn't say - didn't see anything amiss and reset the alarm. Police didn't arrive until 8:00 AM. As in all Apple Stores, the repair area and stockroom is hidden from view by a wall.
