- In Safari you can touch & hold on graphic elements to bring up a Save Image dialog.
- In Safari, a double tap near the top (bottom) of the page will scroll up (down) by a page.
- Everywhere (?), hold the home button and press-release the lock button on top to take a screen capture. The image is saved in the Saved Photos album in the Photo application.
Anyone cares to share more hidden UI tips?

Proxy settings can be changed by manually editing the configuration file
all.js. In Windows this file is in the
Prism\xulrunner\greprefs directory. The required changes are described in a number of places on the web, for example in a comment on the Mozilla Labs Prism page.
The default settings look like:
and you want to change them to the following
where proxy_ip_address and proxy_port need to be set to the proper values for your proxy.
Note What I didn’t find explicitly mentioned is that you have to
- set the proxy values for all fields (ftp, gopher, http, ssl, and socks), and
- use the ip address of the proxy (not its name)
At least Prism didn’t work for me if I set only http or use server name instead of its ip.

Gravatars are dynamically generated based on your registered email addresses. The MD5 hash of an email address is used as a unique ID for the avatar image associated with it.
The problem turned out to be that Gravatar converts emails to lower case, and so for the user accounts on your self hosted WordPress blog you must use lower case for user’s emails.
If you don’t, then you won’t get the right URI for your Gravatar’s images since the MD5 hash changes with the letter case.
At least, changing emails to lower case worked for me.

Eye-Fi is an SD memory card and a wireless card. The camera sees it as a regular SD card, but the card itself can wirelessly connect to a predefined Wi-Fi network and upload pics (JPEG only) to a folder on a computer or to a number of photo sites (not directly, but thru a gateway service provided by Eye-Fi).
The sofware bundle includes a Eye-Fi Manager which is used both for downloading pics to the computer and for the various settings.
Though it seems it will be for 1 week only.
The authors get $1 from Spout for each new account made on Spout (but there’s an upper limit to what they can get – $200.000?).
