Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
Easter eggs are fun, hidden features that are implemented in software for the user to find. The developers of emacs (the text editor built into Mac OS X, and many other Unix-based systems) included many hidden Easter eggs to be discovered by its users.

Read on to find out how.
Apple and AT&T have been making big news since last Friday, when they announced that off-contract iPhones can finally be unlocked from Ma Bell’s ball and chain. While it appears the carrier is also unlocking these handsets for in-contract military service members, T-Mobile is looking forward to enlisting a few good (new) iPhone users.
It’s always an entertaining thing to watch a new device launch, especially one the carrier themselves claim will top anything they’ve done before -- including the iPhone. So why in the world did AT&T choose to launch their new flagship Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 900, on a date when most of their stores were closed?
As reported on Friday, AT&T has curiously started to unlock off-contract iPhones, choosing Easter Sunday to kick the service off. Judging from reports online, many users have been successful at getting their handsets freed from Ma Bell’s shackles, while others are still waiting.
It was the usual pre-holiday weekend hustle & bustle at the App Store, of course, while the rest of the news was a little calmer. We saw some beloved apps get updates and we learned a thing or two about how to mess up people's faces, but in a good way. It was the week that was -- steady on.
We're just days away from Easter Sunday, and for many that can mean a prevalence of cute bunnies, colorful eggs, and overstuffed baskets in the immediate future.
