SARAH'S DUH TIP
- "Well, I've noticed that everyone has used folders on the iPad. Did you know you can put a folder onto the "dock" if you have room. This is really nice if you want to clear space on the home screen, especially if you have an iPhone. Also, instead of having to "flip" from page to page, you could create a favorites app folder and place it on the dock. This way your favorite apps are always available no matter what page you're on.

- Anonymous says, sometimes Apple's customer service recognizes valued customers
- note from last week original caller called us again, said she bit the bullet and went down to the Apple Store to replace her shattered ipad and they told her the system had a note in there not to charge her, she went home, checked her bank account, no charge, new ipad.
