iTunes was the original all-access music application, but since the introduction of iOS devices, it's morphed into a hodgepodge of apps, music, movies, application data, and other iOS-device data storage. If this ever-growing mixture of services is a bit too much for you to handle, then why not consider another method to get data onto your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad?
With iOS 5, Apple finally cut the cord, allowing users to set up their iOS devices without the use of iTunes. We’ll use this functionality, along with some additional apps and services, to finally say, “good riddance” to iTunes.
If your co-workers don’t seem to be getting much done today, you might want to take a peek at their smartphone or tablet -- Angry Birds Space has touched down in the App Store, promising to jettison your productivity like so much space junk.
Jailbreaking allows you to do a multitude of fun things with your phone that Apple wouldn't normally allow you to do, like install apps that enable tethering and adding a little more customization to iOS.

iOS has been crafted into the ultimate mobile work station, especially with the addition of the iWork mobile suite for the iPad. You can create and edit documents in Pages, make a slideshow for an important meeting in Keynote, and put together graphs and stats with Numbers.

But, not every printer is AirPrint-compatible, which is a serious bummer for the serious worker bee, or student who needs to quickly get their paper printed out before deadline. That's why we're going to help: whether your current set up supports AirPrint or not, we'll show you three ways to get those digital documents into tangible paper form one way or another. Read on to find out how.

iOS device users stuck with technical manuals that are PDF only can use iBooks to read documents on the go. Read on to find out how easy it is to sync PDFs with your iPad or iPhone and read them on the go.
By default, passcodes in iOS are only 4-digit numerical codes that aren't as secure as passwords using upper and lower-case characters, special characters, and numbers. If you want to make your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad even more secure, it's best to create an alphanumerical passcode.
Probably the coolest hack we've ever seen went down this week, as well as Apple letting a tethering app slip through the store before AT&T and pals whined like little babies and had it pulled. But that wasn't all, there was just about the biggest game of the year and more in the hottest stories of the week.
The iPhone 4S actually does have some killer new features. The 2011 iPod refresh, on the other hand, is just that-- a refresh. But sometimes good enough is plenty good enough. Though the newest iPods lack any whiz-bang new features, they’re still the best music players out there. You could buy a no-name MP3 player, or a Zune (oh right, not anymore!)-- but why would you?
