Change sucks! Right? We know that's going through the heads of many people who just downloaded iTunes 11. The reality is that change is often great, but there is one thing we immediately missed in the new version of iTunes, and that's the sidebar. Fortunately, turning it back on is easy peasy.
In this dawn of the eBook age, as we start to collect eBooks, read them, archive them, and move them around, it's important to understand the different types of eBooks based on their file formats. Thats important because different eReaders only support certain file types.
This Christmas, dedicated eReaders and tablets than can read eBooks are more popular than ever. To help you navigate through all the fabulous products but also the challenging technical issues, TMO is launching a multi-part eReader/eBook series of articles to help you navigate the technology, services and devices. This is part 1, an introduction and roadmap to the future articles.
In Part One, we looked at all the screen capture options you have available to you on your Mac with just a few key presses. In this installment, we dig in deeper, and look at other options you have as part of the software that is built into OS X.
Do you need to grab images of precisely what's showing on your screen? OS X has a nice handful of options available without you having to spend money on third-party screen capture utilities. The problem is, many of these are poorly documented...unti now.

Ahh… the bliss of some peace and quiet! No matter how much we love our iOS gadgets, we still want some quiet time away from the distracting sounds our beloved devices make when requesting our attention. Now, there's a solution that puts the quietus on the incessant din...
Creating .zip archive files on our Macs is a handy way to enhance our file organization. Additionally, it's practically required when sharing or distributing one or more files. This article talks about a utility found on every Mac that let's you manage various aspects of file archive creation.
One of the coolest tricks in OS X is the ability to drag a file icon from the Finder to the Terminal window to see its path. If your file is editable, you can enter an editor command before you drag the file.
iPhoto maintains it's own trash system as a way to provide you with a way out when you accidentally delete images from your iPhoto Library. This will be explored in this article, as well as how to use the Revert to Original feature in iPhoto.
