I used to be a Firefox loyalist, but after reading your browser roundup (“¡Lucha Libre de Web!” Dec/09), I switched to Safari. I’m loving the speed, but I miss being able to reopen the last closed tab. Safari will reopen my last closed window, but I typically use just one window a day, opening and closing dozens of tabs.
I’m trying to scan a number of legal documents into Pages in order to circulate them among family members for their review and comment. They all have Apple computers with iWork ’09’s Pages and would be able to use the Comment and Track Changes features to post their suggested changes. While my Epson Stylus NX415 will scan a copy of each page into my computer, the file format scans the documents into PDF, and Pages will not import them so that I can make my changes for the family to review and comment on. Is there some way to convert the PDF files so we all can use our Pages program to get consensus on these documents without having to type them into Pages first?
Increasingly, we depend on internet access to run our lives, and when
we have guests over to our house, apartment, or workplace, normally we
either have to open our wireless network or give the guest our network
password. Either way, you open up your wireless network to security
risks. No worries--we’ll show you how to easily setup your own
guest network using either an AirPort Extreme (early 2009 model) or
another brand of router (we’ll use a Netgear).
If your Downloads folder is so stuffed with disk images, random MP3s,
and PDF bank statements that you’re starting to get afraid to look in
there, you need Hazel. If your Desktop is cluttered with so many icons
that it takes more than 30 seconds to find one, you need Hazel. This
über-useful System Preference pane lets you create rules to keep
specific folders automatically organized and maintained, so it’s
perfect for those problems. But Hazel doesn’t just move your files
around--it can rename them, run scripts on them, and so much more.
I really like the camera on my iPhone 3GS. It’s not perfect, but I’ve pretty much stopped carrying the Canon point-and-shoot that used to stay with me always. But there’s a specific situation where I really miss that camera--trying to capture either a self-portrait or a self-taken shot of me in a group. Since I can’t see the iPhone’s screen when I point the camera back at myself, it’s hard to hit the shutter button right. Any tips?
I just gave my old iMac to my father-in-law. He's never had a computerwith a slot-loading optical drive, and asked me what to do if a discever gets stuck in there. I wasn't sure what to tell him since I'venever run into that problem.
I paid good money a couple of years ago to have an iPod-compatible car stereo installed, but it was worth it. My fifth-gen iPod stays charged all the time, and I don’t have CDs all over my car anymore. But then I got a new iPod nano, and when I connect it to the cable, I can play music, but it won’t charge the iPod. What’s up with that?
