At Macworld 2007 Steve Jobs pulled the original iPhone from his pocket, held it up high above the stage, and showed off the app launcher-based Home screen... that's pretty much remained the same ever since. That's not entirely true, of course. Apple quickly added the ability to create WebClip icons for websites, and to re-arrange and delete them. With iOS 2 (iPhone OS 2) they added native apps to that mix. They increased the number of Home pages. They added Spotlight. They added wallpaper. With iOS 4 they layered in the multitasking fast app switcher. They layered in folders. The iPad, and the iPad alone, got landscape Home screen support. With iOS 5 they layered in Notification Center and Siri. Is it time for something more? Familiarity is a feature To a casual user -- someone who only makes calls, plays music, takes photographs, and runs the occasional app -- the iPhone today works almost exactly as it did back in 2007. Just like a casual Mac OS X user can ignore the Terminal, iOS … [Read more...] about iOS 6: Is it time for Apple to revamp the Home screen?

What hasn't changed Almost everything has changed this time. Likely because there's no weather or clock apps to ignore. Still, there doesn't seem to be anything new in Contacts yet, but we'll keep our eyes peeled. Huge update, we told you. Hardware changes No, that's not a typo. As you're read below, Apple has added a software orientation lock to iOS 4.2 for iPad, similar to how it works on iPhone. That means the previous, hardware-based orientation lock is no longer needed, so they've made that a mute switch like on iPhone. Yes, they really changed a hardware button. Yes, it will make iPhone owners less confused but it will mess with existing iPad owners. Either way, be advised. System-wide enhancements Many of the system-wide enhancements that came with iOS 4.2 for iPhone were already present in IOS 3.2 for iPad -- spellcheck, text replacement, etc. And unfortunately, there's still no sign of VoiceControl, which both iPhone and iPod touch have. There is, however... AirPlay AirPlay is … [Read more...] about iOS 4.2 for iPad review

Amroze (banned) (Posts: 597; Member since: 04 Jul 2016) The only business model for Apple is narcissism. Its true. And for what its worth, the only “geniuses” that work for Apple are the members of their marketing team, because holy hell, we all know that the best way to sell a product in this day and age, especially to Americans, is to patronize their self-righteous beliefs. There are only 2 types of people that buy a Mac: 50.

Contents > Why macOS is different to Windows > Locate program in Applications folder > Delete preferences > Difficult exceptions > Shareware options Uninstalling Mac software applications is a bit different to the process on a Windows PC, and there are some stubborn Mac programs that even the best of us have troubling getting rid of. But there's always a solution. Here's how to uninstall or delete a software program or application from your Mac - a handy process that will help to make space on a Mac and could speed it up too. Why macOS is different to Windows In Windows, programs must be installed with special installer wizards, and more pertinently must be removed by the same kind of mechanisms. Sloppy housekeeping from Microsoft initially let software developers install many fragmented pieces of their program wherever they liked across the C: boot drive. Aside from the system security problems this can create, it also makes uninstalling … [Read more...] about How to get rid of a Mac application that won’t take the hint
