If you’ve been keeping up with the technological arms race of music video games, you’re probably aware that Rock Band 3, released this October, features a Pro mode that teaches players to actually play guitar or keyboards. A real, stringed electric guitar is forthcoming, but at the moment, Pro guitar mode can only be played with the Mustang – a plastic controller with strings only for strumming, and a neck littered with buttons.
We're going to show you how to use the Mustang plastic guitar with Garageband.
I found this tip by accident and wanted to share it--hope you haven’t heard this before. One frustrating thing about the iPhone is photo management. Oh, sure, you get a chance to delete photos after importing them into iPhoto, but you only get that one chance, and it’s all or nothing. If you only want to delete some of the photos, you’ve got to do that manually on the phone--or so I thought.
Turns out there’s another way. Plug in your iPhone and open Preview, then select File > Import From [Your iPhone’s Name]. A window appears showing all the photos on your phone, and you can move them around, save them to disk, and delete them from the phone individually or in batches. Don’t ask me why this is in Preview and not iPhoto!
Whenever somebody sends me a link to an album in the iTunes Store or an app from the App Store, Safari launches and shows me all the information in a webpage with reviews and song previews and everything. But then iTunes automatically launches and shows me the exact same information! How do I stop Safari from auto-launching iTunes?
Ever since upgrading my iPhone to iOS 4, I’ve been having problems with Mail. Often, my inbox will contain tons of messages that say “No Sender” and “No Subject”, and I can’t get it to show my actual email messages until I shut down and reboot my iPhone.
I’ve been working on a personal website for quite some time. I’m using iWeb because it’s pretty simple. However, my uploaded audio files (entirely ethnic songs) from iTunes can only be accessed by Macs or the very latest PCs. Since this personal website caters to my friends, most of them in different parts of the world, very few use Macs and most are using older PCs. When I asked a friend overseas to test my website, he didn’t see any of the audio files at all.
With the bevy of software available for the Mac, it can sometimes be difficult to remember to update all of the applications you may have installed. After all, that software is meant to be used, not just updated constantly. But in reality, many Mac apps require care and feeding, so we’ll show you the best, most efficient path to getting that chore done without squandering any of your precious free time.
In Windows, when I press Alt-Tab, it switches me between all of my open web browser windows. However, when I press Command-Tab on the Mac, it switches me out of Safari and into a completely different application. How do I use the keyboard to switch between windows instead of applications?
It only took about 30 seconds after the iPad was announced for everyone to start wondering how (or if) we’d be able to hook up our iPad to a Mac and use it as a giant touchpad. Of course, now Apple has released the Magic Trackpad, but its paltry 21.8 square inches of touchable, clickable real estate can’t hold a candle to the iPad’s 45.2 inches.
I created a document in Microsoft Word with lots of hyperlinks, but when I save the document as a PDF file, the hyperlinks are not clickable. Do you know what I have to do to make these links clickable?
