    Posted July 28, 2012 - 7:15 am

    Apple is making it easier to get apps from the App Store with iOS 6 by removing the need to enter your password for every app you download to your device, according to numerous online reports. If all you’re doing is downloading an app update, a free app, or an app you previously deleted, Apple reportedly will not ask for your password in its next update to its' mobile OS for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. Instead, you will only have to enter your password for paid apps. The change was first publicized by a Reddit user with access to the latest beta version of iOS 6 released to developers.

    Posted June 24, 2012 - 7:25 am

You can maneuver around through folders to find what you're after, and use the Spotlight menu to search for files and launch apps more quickly. Power users tend to prefer third-party utilities like LaunchBar ( Macworld rated 5 out of 5 mice ) or Alfred ( Macworld rated 4.5 out of 5 mice ). These are keyboard-driven apps that make quick work of common actions for tech savvy users.

  • Business/IT and the iPad: Yes Please

    Posted April 27, 2010 - 6:14 pm

    One of the less-pleasant parts of being an IT Manager with a Mac network who writes about the same is that unlike my non-Mac managing compatriots, I have to pay attention to all the news that surrounds any Apple announcement. The iPad is no exception. Nor is it an exception to Sturgeon's Law, especially in the...quality of commentary about the device. Most of it makes me wonder if the people behind the commentary aren't just using a Mad Libs application to generate said commentary. The accuracy wouldn't be much worse. Fortunately, the actual story is a lot less worrisome.

    iPhone and iPod touch remote controls

    Posted October 28, 2009 - 10:40 am

    Getting up from your couch to "change the channel" on your Mac-based media center is so 1970s. If you're going to the trouble to mutate a Mac into something that delivers music and video via your AV gear--or even enjoy a movie on a 27-inch iMac across the room--you'll also want to replicate the experience of watching real TV as much as possible. That means having a remote control that lets you manage the works without a lot of fuss and bother.
