Viewer Duh Tip

  • Duh Tip: Use Smart Cover as a cleaning cloth!

"When the iPad 2 was announced, along with its smart cover, everyone was quick to point out the relative pointlessness of the microfiber cloth side. It is true, when used as a cover, that microfiber cloth really doesn't do much.

However, if you fold the smart cover into its typical triangle, you can actually just detach it and use it to wipe the screen. With a few strong, sturdy swipes, it does a great job of cleaning the screen. The best part is, unlike many cloths companies provide with their devices, this one doesn't get used once and lost among desk clutter (at least that is my experience)!

Finally, a simple solution to the fingerprint-loving screens of our iPads! Matt from Cincinnati, OH"

Idea of the Week

  • Viewer Idea: Route calls through iPad

"I've been looking for a particular app for ages and can't seem to find it ...... Imagine the situation ........ Sitting on the train on an evening on the way home. Watching iPad today .... headphones on, enjoying catching up on the weeks events. Suddenly iPhone in pocket rings ..... cue scramble to pause video, whip off headphones, whip out iPhone and try to answer before it diverts to voicemail. Wouldn't it be great to be watching your iPad and a little button appears answer or reject the phone call via Bluetooth, if you accept it routes your call through your iPad to the headphones you're already wearing. Now I'm not a developer but if this existed I'd pay for it...

Thanks and love all the twit shows Paul (from Ireland)"
