The results depend gigantically on what you're photographing, and how steady your hand is, but it can work well and even when it fails, it can be rather pretty.

03/30, 7:24pm

Taking a screen shot on your iPhone is easy enough to do, right? Well, provided it's not a long document, web page, text conversation or Facebook thread, that is. But what if you do need to take a screenshot of a whole web page, or conversation in Messages? You can always take multiple screenshots and meticulously organize them, or you can just try out Tailor, an app that creates continuous screenshots for you.

Apple issues sixth OS X 10.10.3 beta with minor changes

03/30, 5:49pm

On Monday, Apple issued a sixth beta of OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 to developers, and an identical third beta to registered public testers. The new build, numbered 14D127a, is said to be mostly a security, compatibility, and stability bugfix release, though the company has added a request that testers focus on screen-sharing features as well as Hebrew and Arabic localizations, on top of the ongoing focus on Wi-Fi "captive portal" networks (such as hotels or coffeeshops).

Hands On: SuperDuper! 2.7.5 (OS X)

03/30, 4:03pm

Apple did a great thing in bringing Time Machine to the rest of us: it made backups a more familiar idea, and it made them far easier to understand as well. Something that is easy and familiar is something that you're going to do, and Apple was right that we really, really needed to back up our work. Now Apple is more focused on cloud storage than it is hard drives -- and there are several cloud backup services -- but the humble hard disk has a lot of advantages. It also has SuperDuper 2.7.5, which is a capable, albeit slightly technical, application for copying your data, and for creating a hard drive that you can run your Mac from in emergencies.

Hands On: Crazy Gears v1.0.1 (iOS)

03/30, 1:04pm

It's in a child's nature to be interested about the world around them, and as parents and teachers, there's a certain obligation you have to encourage that. Starting from age two, kids just seem to become more and more inquisitive, and while the "why?" phase is never fun, watching a child develop a genuine interest in the way the world works is one of the best things a parent gets to witness. Finding games that can help foster those interests isn't always easy, but we think that Crazy Gears is a good place to start.
