File permissions are important to utilize on a computer with more than one login because they keep certain user from accessing files or folders with sensitive information. Occasionally, you may need to give someone access to these particular files, and that’s when knowing how to use this tool could come in handy. Using an administrator account and the chmod command, you can “change the mode” of files and folders, which will allow other uers to read, write, or execute certain files.
Read on to learn all about file permissions and how you can change them through the command line.
Looking for a viable alternative to Evernote? Microsoft OneNote for iPad is an incredibly powerful note-taking application that stores all of your to-dos, notes, photos, and clippings in the cloud. And just like Evernote, it's free!
Word around the campfire has it that Apple's March 7 press event in San Francisco will mark the debut of a third-generation iPad. Given the nature of the event's marketing artwork, it's a sure bet that Tim Cook and his crew will definitely be talking tablets. That said, does anyone have a handle on what we'll see unveiled next week? Nope, but that's never kept anyone from speculating about what Cupertino has in store for the masses in the past, has it?
There's nothing I like more than a pretty case...that sounded girly. What I really mean to say is that if the case makes the iPhone look bulky and bland, I'm not going to sport it. UNIEA's unique line of iPhone 4S cases are gorgeous and a work of art themselves--a perfectly pretty companion for your even-prettier phone.
In one fell swoop this week, Apple makes Motorola an offer they can't refuse, changes the dynamics of several long-contested patent cases, and possibly gives Google cause to second-guess a pending blockbuster deal. It's not personal, it's only business as usual in the ever changing world of patent lawsuits.
So take the cannoli and cue the dun-dun; it's time for another week of Law & Apple.

Activity Monitor is one of OS X's many helpful built-in tools to help you figure out what applications are over-utilizing your Mac's processing power. It also gives you a glimpse into what applications are doing in the background and which ones are hogging up all of the resources. Today, we'll teach you how to do this in Terminal. And once you've mastered today's command, consider enabling SSH to remotely monitor your Mac's activity.
You love your friends and their sometimes unintelligible tweets and Facebook posts, so why not turn them into a novel? Storify lets you create stories out of your social networks. Finally! You can do a little damage to the High School Beauty Queen's Facebook timeline. Or maybe that's just my fantasy…
Let's be honest: not everybody can do the electric slide, especially when it is patented. Apple won a ruling against Motorola in Germany for the first time, and it is kind of a big one. Also, for all of you sufferers of the iPhone 4 "death grip" who have been anxiously awaiting the outcome from your class-action suit against Apple, a settlement is reached; you stand to get enough cash to possibly buy yourself two, maybe three gallons of gas.
Cue the dun-dun and let's recap another week of Law & Apple.
This week, I'm reviewing the Cygnett Icon Art Series case for the iPhone 4S. These fashionable cases are aesthetically pleasing and smooth to the touch, and they do so without adding any bulk to your iPhone. Read on to find out more.
