Duh Tip-Home Button

"Not sure if this is widely known and I'm just a moron but... Often when I'm reading stuff on my iPad whilst holding it in landscape mode I accidentally press the home key. This obviously switches me back to the home menu. Not a great hardship but it is annoying. Anyway I noticed the other day that if I realise I have pressed the home key and just keep it pressed for a few seconds before releasing it, nothing happens and I can continue doing what I was doing. Love the show guys. Regards, Gordon Robb Scotland"

iPad Today Star of the Week

  • It's a human this week!
    • "Sarah & Leo, I spend many hours a day in my wheelchair and I love my IPad-2. I must move regularly, changing positions and pressure points. Holding my IPad-2 can be difficult as I only use one hand. My son knows how much I love my IPad-2 so, for Fathers Day, he created this wonderful device. It allows me to use the IPad-2 with without danger of dropping it. It is so very cool. Can you help me name it? I call it Pad-Neck. What do you think--Dave Graham, Liberty Lake, Washington"


"I feel one of the best features of iBooks is managing PDFs. I have found that if I'm in safari and have a PDF open, if you tap and Hold the screen there is an option to open in iBooks. This will then down load the PDF and store the PDF on a shelf. iBooks let's you have multiple book shelves. This is great for me because I store all my user manuals on the iPad in PDF form and then organize them by topic. Bruce Millar"
