I've never been all that interested in jailbreaking. As something of a design purist, I often go to foolish lengths to keep my favorite things as they were conceived: I've broken three iPhones due to my hatred of cases. My first home screen is still reserved for the first 10 iPhone OS apps, in order. Each of my 43 pairs of sneakers have their original laces.
Suffice to say, I've always been more interested in Apple's vision for iOS than anyone else's. But all that changed when I laid my eyes on Auxo.
Mail’s address field is auto-populated as you type with addresses from Contacts (formerly Address Book) as well as addresses you’ve previously sent and received email from. There’s no one-click way to clear all of those out, but you can remove them one by one — handy if you, say, tried to send a message to a misspelled address and that misspelling keeps coming up as an option.
It just so happens that the Calendar app (or iCal as it was known before Mountain Lion) will allow you to create alerts on a per-event basis, and send those alerts to your Mac’s screen or iPhone notification at a predefined time. Click through to find out how.
Just when the rumor mill was poised to start churning out reports of thinner, lighter, more powerful iPads, Apple had to go and throw a big bucket of cold water on our hopes for a spring refresh. Instead of teasing us with an invitation to a press event, Apple rather unceremoniously added a top-of-the-line model to the existing catalogue, likely signaling at least six more months of the current design.
It's strange to think back to that not-too-long-ago time when the iPad didn't exist, seeing how well we've managed to integrate it into our lives. Whether it's browsing the web on the couch, typing up documents in a cafe, or amusing ourselves with apps while traveling, Apple's sleek tablet can serve a lot of different purposes. It all depends on what you put on the iPad, and thankfully, there's no shortage of worthwhile apps that don't require a penny to start poking around in. Here are our picks for the 25 best free iPad apps, which span a variety of genres and needs, and include everything from content creation to social media and pure entertainment.
With Google Voice, whenever someone calls your GVoice number, the call will automatically be routed to your selected phones in the Google Voice settings. This will not impact your regular phone number. If someone calls your old cell or home phone number, then it will ring as usual without going through the Google Voice service. However, if you activated Google voicemail on your cell phone, whenever someone calls your cell phone number and doesn’t get an answer, they will be directed to your GVoice voicemail instead of your cell provider’s voicemail system. Here's how to deactivate that.

So, maybe you're thinking of buying a brand new iMac.

And when we think of unwinding, our thoughts quickly turn to videogames — so we decided to check out how the new Late 2012 27-inch iMac handles some of today's biggest Mac-compatible titles.
