Find the Perfect Speakers for Your MP3 Player

I've only had an iPod for about a year (I know, sad but true), and although my girls listen to stories and music on their mp3 players pretty much everyday, I found that mine spent a lot of time in a drawer simply because I'm not in a position to listen to music or books…

So you've got your shiny new iPad. You start adding apps and then you sync it to iTunes...and suddenly you're out of memory.

Quick Tip: Use PrintJinni to Print from Your iOS Device

To be honest, I still use my iPad mostly for "play" rather than work -- although I think it's also a fabulous productivity tool in place of a traditional day planner with apps like AwesomeNote.

iPad Tip: Extra Controls to the Left of Your Quick Bar

A few weeks ago I showed you how to close open programs in iOS4 on the iPad and iPhone (and I was so glad I wasn't the only one who didn't know how to do that for a long time!). But that's not the only thing you can do by double clicking the home button.…
