From the Inside iPhone 2.0 series: the new iPhone 3G Software on AppleInsider.
- 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.

Update: The extensions are now cleanly integrated into the original script.
The original script handles only the first ten links in the item, so I have extended it to support posts with any number of links. By pressing the activation keystroke i.e. f+l multiple times will move by blocks of 10 consecutive links, tagged [0-9] as in the original script; blocks will restart from top when the last link in the post is reached. At any give time, only a subset of 10 links will be available.
I have also added secure (https) versions in include directives.

- Microsoft’s decision to launch a low-end version of its XNA programming framework for making XBox games
- allows students and amateurs to play in the XBox sandbox and share games and code with other programmers
- MS is looking forward to launching a few amateur apps, thereby reducing their development costs to zero.
- Clearly this is a viable and interesting model and the barrier to entry is fairly low, so everyone and their dog can get in on this thing early. Interestingly enough – and I’ve always been a big PS3 proponent – I can’t imagine Sony even considering this sort of thing, to their detriment.
