Home Sharing is finally on your iOS devices with the release of iOS 4.3. What's that mean? You can finally listen to all of the music and watch all the videos on all of your iOS devices and Macs. That means you too Apple TV with your photo sharing.
Before you get all giddy with streaming excitement, you're going to need to set all of this Home Sharing up. We've got you covered.
Even though we live in a (almost) completely digital age, there is still a need for the physical medium of ink and paper. Whether you’re in college or work a job, paper will still be around for many years to come. One of the biggest disadvantages with printing, however, is that most mobile devices that we use can’t print to a local networked printer, or an internet-connected printer. That’s where Google Cloud Print comes in.
This free service allows you to set up your home or work PC to accept print jobs from a mobile device or a spiffy Google Chrome netbook from around the world. So long as the device is linked to your Google Cloud Print account, you can print to your home or work printer wherever you have an internet connection.
Admit it: You were mildly amused when actor Charlie Sheen kicked off his very public meltdown. But let’s face it, three weeks later and the whole thing has seriously worn out its welcome. If you’ve had enough, a new Firefox or Chrome plugin called “Tinted Sheen” may offer you some much-needed relief.
Search engines help us navigate the web, but Google and Bing aren't the only helpers that exist out there. There are also a myriad of specific search engines, like Creative Commons or Answers.com. Sometimes, one other search engine is more helpful than the other. If you're an avid user of Firefox, the search engine bar is actually more useful than you think, and includes all of these helpful services. Read on to find out how to utilize these search engines in the Firefox browser.
It's a fact: as your iTunes collection gets bigger, the amount of free space on your drive gets smaller. Sure, you could stuff your computer's internal drive to the gills with as much media as you can jam in there, but as Macs require a reasonable chunk of drive real estate to keep on puttering along in a trouble-free fashion, we'd advise against this storage strategy. What to do? You could buy a larger internal drive for a little more breathing room. You could bite a bullet and delete a few thousand files from your enormous collection of music, movies and television shows, but that's a pretty extreme fix. If neither of these solutions appeal to you, how about transferring part of your iTunes library to a spare external drive that you've got laying around? Yeah, that's the ticket! Here's how to do it.
Many web developers and designers rely on matching up just the right colors to make a web page or design look it’s best. And while there are many websites (like ColourLovers) that can provide you with color palettes to choose from, sometimes you may have an image on your computer that you want to grab the color HEX code to use in a website design. That’s where a built-in Apple utility called DigitalColor Meter comes in.
Now that we’re measuring storage in terabytes, it’s all too easy to just save everything, including your awful undergrad papers on Kurt Vonnegut and those photos of every second of your kid’s first year -- with the inevitable duplicates, of course. Despite our best intentions, it seems like every time we upgrade our Macs, the files multiply. Minimalistic Development’s solution is Singlemizer, a tool for finding and eliminating duplicate files. Singlemizer is powerful stuff, and it can make quick work of years’ worth of shoddy file management.
While Apple was busy on Monday night seeding a new build of Mac OS X 10.6.7 to developers, an inside source is claiming that the company may jump the gun and release the final iOS 4.3 build to users as early as Tuesday at 10am PST.
On Tuesday, Roxio took the wraps off the latest versions of its disc-burning media toolkits, Toast 11 Titanium and Toast 11 Pro. It’s been over two years since the company released Toast 10 after a stream of annual updates, but Toast 11 looks like it may be worth the wait.
