Review of the MicroShell Folio iPad2 Case (from Marware)

I recently got a MicroShell Folio iPad2 Case , and so far I am quite pleased. I got the black one, but the Folio also comes in white and silver for the same price of $69.99. The top of the MicroShell Folio has the same look, feel, and convenience of Apple's SmartCover, including a "soft magnet" that...

Re: Apple Security Update Addresses MacDefender

I had never even heard about "File Quarantine" in Snow Leopard.

There is a well written article about File Quarantine and the Security Update here .

You will need to check the checkbox in the Energy Saver pane of System Prefs on your Mac labeled "Wake for Network Access". (see screenshot)

Re: Flat-Screen TV as Monitor

I have a DVI adapter for the MacBook Pro (see below). Do I need an HDMI adapter? Will the TV come with cables long enough for connecting to the MacBook? I have been using the same DVI adapter, but am using it with a DVI to HDMI cable. I would bet that most current HDTVs come without DVI in ports. I...

Re: Sequim Sunrise Rotary Club donates iPads

It would be great if someone could get this content to the Sequim Gazette.

Maybe someone could even get some photos of the iPads in use by the students.

Re: Boost volume on a video for iPhone?

Audacity is an open source sound editor that should do the job: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Just open the file to be edited (from iTunes is an option) and then choose Amplify from the Effect menu. (see screenshot)

Re: Safari's arrow for previous page - disappeared

Kirsten, Go to the View menu and choose Customize Toolbar... You should see a dialog box like the one below. Then, just drag the arrows in the dialog box to wherever you want them on the toolbar. While there you can also drag off icons that you never use, and might even find some other icons that yo...

Re: Log in Automatically?

Well, I think I have the answer to the DELETE issue. We all need to remember that this software has a really good FAQ section, something JForum didn't have. So I went to the FAQ and read about editing and deleting a post. It seems that phpBB3 will only let you edit a limited number of times and you...

Re: Sample Post

Yeah. The movie plays right inside the post window when using Safari.

However, nothing happens when I click the link when using Camino, Firefox 4, OmniWeb, or Opera.

I can't explain why, but I suspect that it has something to do with installed plug-ins.

Highlighting

O.K. Now let's try highlighting some text using the recently added Highlight button.

The Highlight button works just like the other style buttons ... just select the text that you want to highlight, and click the button.
