How to take a screenshot with the iPhone

How to take a screenshot with the iPhone

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have moved the sleep/wake button to a new location, but you can still take screenshots as easily as ever. And yes, while this might be second-nature to some, Apple doesn't tell you how to take a screenshot out of the box. So, not everyone may yet know that they can capture their iPhone screen content with just the touch of a button (well, two buttons actually).

D'oh! Blackberry Storm Gets Cut and Paste!

D'oh! Blackberry Storm Gets Cut and Paste!

Sure, iPhone 2.2 is getting better and better, but after 2 years and the best graphical user interface team ever put on Jobs' vegan earth, we still don't have official cut, copy, and paste functionality. Blackberry Storm, however, which hasn't even hit the market yet? Looks like they'll get it Day One.

Our frenemies over a Crackberry.com pass along the deets (via BGR), while a commenter updates on the functionality:

iPhone 2.2: Google Street View, Auto-Correct Off, and Emoji

iPhone 2.2: Google Street View, Auto-Correct Off, and Emoji

Developers are continuing to dig away at iPhone Firmware 2.2 Beta 1, and Macrumors brings word of a few more juicy finds:

First up is Google Street View for Maps, which Android wowed the crowds with at its recent unveiling. Just like location services, however, it looks like Apple and Google will be rolling it in for iPhone users soon enough.

Next is a Settings control to enable or disable the auto-correction feature of the keyboard. Many of our own readers have been asking for this, likely to get their SMS <3, 133t, can has lolcatz, or, you know... other languages on.

Lastly, Japanese Emoji icons seem to have finally found their place in the iPhone-verse.

Still no word, however, on the delayed Push Notification Server support or many of the other most griped about, still curiously omitted features like... oh, we don't know... cut and goram paste?!

So, are these enough new features to wet your 2.2. appetite? Want more? And how important is it to you that Apple balance the amount of new features with the risk of instability a la 2.0?

TiPb Answers: How Do You Manage Mobile Safari Bookmarks on the iPhone?

TiPb loves answering your emails, but we also love sharing our answers with the community in hopes that more people will benefit, and even better answers will present themselves (hey, that's why we have them forums!). Today's question comes from Joephoto5:

My Bookmarks are listed in the order that I created them... Is there a way to resort them??? Is there a way to "group" them ... (ala: sites dedicated to "news", or sites dedicated to the "iPhone", or sites dedicated to "aviation" etc.) ???

Got Camera Problems with iPhone 2.1?

Got Camera Problems with iPhone 2.1?

Since upgrading to iPhone firmware 2.1, from time to time my camera preview -- and the pictures themselves -- have taken to breaking apart and re-arranging themselves into something pretty much unusable (though likely to fetch a pretty penny at the snootier, more vacuous galleries, no doubt).

The above picture was of a plain surface, now broken into a patchwork of planes. Happens with faces, people, and just about everything. It's not happening regularly enough, however, that I'm close to considering the nu-cu-lar option -- full on restore.

Anyone else having this problem?

Fun In the Sun: iPhone Solar Powered Charger/Case

What we have here is a solar-powered iPhone case/charger, from Brando.com.hk, an Asian technology importer. And if you think about it, it's really not too shabby an idea.

The cost of this clever case is $48 and it is made of black leather, includes a 3.7-volt rechargeable battery, and a built-in photocell. Two versions are available, a flip-top and a side holster.

CEOh-Snap: RIM Blames iPhone for AT&T Bold-faced Delays!

Pop quiz. You announce the hawt new tic-tac-tile handset in May for a Summer release yet Summer comes and goes, and one of the largest carriers in one of the largest geekphone markets in the world (that'd be AT&T in the USA) keeps rejecting your firmware -- over and over again.

Reports of Steve's Heart Attack Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Reports of Steve's death have been greatly exaggerated... and in this particular case, a report of Steve Jobs having a heart attack. Can we leave this guy alone people? And is his health any of your business anyways? This time the heart attack rumor started over at a CNN website, iReport.com. It remained on CNN's website for about 30 minutes before being pulled.

CNN has since made the following statement:

Return of the Web Apps?

Return of the Web Apps?

Is it possible that web apps can return from the dead? It seems to me that the 2.0 firmware pretty much buried the poor web apps six feet under. Even if they are not used nearly as often since we have 3rd party apps along with the App store, it seems as if Apple are quietly tweaking the iPhone for them.

According to a reader over at AppleInsider.com:

If Nokia Launches an iClone, and Nobody Notices, Does it Truly Exist?

If Nokia Launches an iClone, and Nobody Notices, Does it Truly Exist?

Reader Reptile writes in with the tip, and the pithy title inspiration. Seems like our friends to the frozen north (no, not Canada, Nokia-land!) finally released their iClone... er... Tube... er... Xpress Music.

The device, which started life as a complete rip-off proof of concept roughly 3 minutes after Steve Jobs revealed the iPhone live on the Macworld 2007 stage has taken a long -- looooooooong -- time to come to market. Was it worth the wait?
