Ever been out, about, and away from your Mac’s music library when a song’s stuck in your head? If you want to stop being tempted to give iTunes another $1.29 to redownload it, the solution is an SFTP client on your iPad or iPhone that connects to your Mac back home to download the song to your iOS device. The best part of a setup like this is that you can keep using iTunes to manage your music without interrupting streaming to your Apple TV. You’ll also be able to stream any tunes that are DRM-free to your iOS devices over the internet with a 3G or EDGE connection, and you can access many other Mac-based files as well.
Apple’s totally earned that whole “it just works” thing…except when it comes to getting photos on and off your iDevices. Quite frankly, it doesn’t work well at all unless you know your way around a less-than-obvious app or two.

Your iDevice can do amazing things—until the battery runs out. But don’t let that stop you from using it to the fullest. With the right settings or gear, you can stay charged up without sacrificing your favorite features.
