How to enable and disable notification banners on the Mac

OS X's Notification Center puts you in touch with what's happening on your Mac and elsewhere in the world — displaying banners, alerts, badge notifications and lock screen notifications to let you know what's going on. Notification banners — those little bubbles of information that appear in the upper right corner of your screen — can be helpful but they can also be distracting, so here's how you can turn them off.

How to replace the battery in an iPhone 5s

A bad battery can severely diminish how long you can go on a full charge.

History of iPhone: Apple reinvents the phone

Leading up to the iPhone 6 event we're updating and expanding our series on the history of the iPhone, starting with the original!

On January 9, 2007 the late Steve Jobs put sneaker to Macworld stage to give one of the most incredible keynote presentations of his life — a life filled with incredible keynotes — and in the history of consumer electronics. There, he said he would be introducing a wide-screen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough internet device. But it wasn't three products. It was one product. We got it. It was the iPhone.

iPhone #ALSIceBucketChallenge proves Samsung marketing clueless. Again.

iPhone #ALSIceBucketChallenge proves Samsung marketing clueless. Again.

Earlier today Samsung marketing thought it would be a good idea to have the Galaxy S5 take the #ALSIceBucketChallenge — which has succeeded in generating record donations for an incredibly worthy cause — and use it not only to advertise their phone, but to try to do it at the expense of their competition, including the iPhone. The problem obvious to anyone outside Samsung marketing — aside from the stupefying perversion of charity — is that the conditions under which they performed the challenge were pretty much fine for any of the competing phones they called out, including the iPhone. To prove it, I took 15 minutes and made the video above (after taking 45 min. to shake my head first).

I donated to ALS when I made my own video last week. I'm donating again today. I only hope Samsung marketing and everyone who made their ill-considered video is, at the very least, breaking open their massive bank accounts to help out as well.

How to block and report iMessage spam to Apple

How to block and report iMessage spam to Apple

There's reportedly been a recent increase in iMessage spam. Since iMessage works like carrier SMS/MMS, and not like social networks where you have to request/accept contacts, anyone with your phone number or email address can send to you. Since there's a desktop iMessage for Mac, it's more convenient than SMS/MMS to send as well. And, well, some human beings simply suck. Fortunately, you can block any number or address that sends you spam, and you can report their iMessages straight to Apple. It takes a few steps, but rage makes them easy to get through!
