We saved the best and easiest for last. By now, you’ve no doubt tried many of the commands, but this can leave your Terminal command rather busy with text flowing here and there. If you want to get rid of all the previous commands and outputs being displayed on the screen, simply enter clear followed by the enter key. This will wipe your Terminal screen clean, ready for you to type more commands.
This was the week the App Store cracked the 10 billion download mark and we have to say lotsa luck to the Microsoft app store. We hope to see you reach 10 billion downloads sometime around 2025. Bwahahaha! We kid, we kid. The MS app store will never reach 10 billion downloads! Zing! We kid again, we kid. All right, enough comedy, on with the all the news that's fit not to miss, but just in case you did.
It only took about a week since Apple started its countdown to 10 billion App Store downloads, but today it finally happened. Apple announced today that they have hit the magic number. As far as who was the lucky one to win the $10,000 iTunes gift card, that still has yet to be determined.
Here at Mac|Life headquarters, we believe that sharing is caring. That's right: every bit of news that we could possibly want our colleagues to be privy to, we shout it out loud from the industrial-sized soapboxes stashed away under our desks. And when we can't physically make proclamations here at the office, we do so with our Macs and iOS devices on the go. In this edition of Free App Friday, we're featuring three apps that'll help you get the word out about whatever it is you've got going on, and keep you in the know about your neighbor's agenda, too.
CES is a fading memory, and Macworld Expo is right around the corner. So how do the two events stack up? CES is larger, both in terms of physical size, attendance (upwards of 170,000 people attended the show), and media coverage.
So what's a Macworld Expo to do? Even though Macworld Expo wins at its depth of Apple coverage -- which is huge -- the two events are running neck-and-neck in the "being overshadowed by looming Apple announcements" department, so if Macworld Expo wants to compete with -- and exceed -- CES, they're going to have to dig deep, and up their game.
There's really no denying that the original Tiki Towers, released in 2008, was a shameless, unabashed ripoff of indie sensation World of Goo. However, a strange thing has happened since then: we've stopped caring. It might have been a little obnoxious at first, but those cute little monkeys soon destroyed any foul feelings we had towards the game.
Now we have word that the sequel has been released on the App Store, and this time we welcome our simian comrades with open arms.
Canada already has a lot going for it: It's the birthplace of William Shatner, and poutine. Not only that, but they also invented insulin, standard time and television. Yep, they might also have free health care... but do you want to know what really grinds our gears about our northern neighbors? The sweet deals they're currently getting on refurbished iPads from Apple's online store.
If you've ever jailbroken an iOS device, there's little doubt that you've already paid a visit to the Cydia App Store. Full of invaluable iOS application that for one reason or another didn't make it into the iTunes App Store, Jay Freeman's Cydia has always been a one-stop shop to make your jailbreaking efforts worth while. Now, thanks to a few key updates to Cydia, it appears that the service will become easier to use than ever.
We had a great time mingling with you--the readers!--at our meetup on January 20 in downtown San Francisco. There was plenty of beer, lots of smiles, a fun little Apple-related pub quiz and a ton of prizes to be given away, including Incipio iPhone 4 cases for everyone who showed up from our friends at Incipio. One of you even made cupcakes for the whole lot!
Thanks to everyone for showing up, and if you didn't make it this time around, don't fret! We're having another reader meetup in the near future. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for news of the next meetup.
Adding to its growing collection of mobile emulations of its classic games, Sega has released Virtua Fighter 2 in the App Store. This isn't the well-known arcade version, though. Rather than that gorgeous (by 1995 standards) 3D version, this is the 2D Sega Genesis version of that same game--we know, it's a little confusing.
iPhone 5 is going to be completely redesigned, invisible tanks are heading to the battlefields and the BlackBerry Storm 3 isn't so invisible now that images have leaked. These are just some of the top stories this week on TechRadar.
Over in reviews, our in-depth look at Google TV proved popular as did our Motorola Flipout review and our updated Google Nexus S review.
Read on for this week's most popular stories on TechRadar…
The spotlight is back on the iPhone 4, with the first Verizon commercial hitting YouTube and new, slightly modified bumper cases that work with both carrier’s models making their way to an Apple Store near you.
The digging into iOS 4.3 beta 2 continues, with the latest discovery a string that seems to indicate the iPad 2 may wind up with the same back-facing camera as the iPod touch -- which means 720p video recording may indeed be a reality.
Apple’s second-generation Apple TV continues to expand its iOS-based horizons, thanks to enterprising developers who don’t have Cupertino addresses. The latest is XBMC, the open source media player’s first ARM-based release and a full port of the software.
Today, Apple released software updates for both iMovie and iDVD to improve the overall quality and stability of the two applications.

You can update your system from the Software Update option in your menu bar or from Apple's official site.
