Last week, we covered how to change the format of screenshots captured by the built-in OS X screen capture utility. This week, we want to tackle the way screenshots are saved, specifically taking a look at where they're saved. By default, OS X saves these screen captures to your Desktop on OS X. We'll take a look at how to change this location to something more appropriate using a simple Terminal command. Let's get started.

It may be iPad 2 day, but that doesn’t mean that speculation about the next iPhone can’t also be newsworthy. If recently released engineering diagrams are to be believed, the iPhone 5 may indeed have a larger, edge-to-edge screen.
As rumors of a new, smaller “iPhone nano” swirl across the pipes, a report from Taiwan indicates that Apple may choose to go in the other direction for the next iPhone -- essentially keeping the same form factor but increasing the screen size to four inches to better compete with Android smartphones.
