News: Skype will be available on iPhone next week

March 31, 2009

We heard it was on the way, but now CNET says it’s official: the Skype application for iPhone and iPod touch should be available tomorrow on the App Store. As expected, the voice-over-IP app will require a WiFi connection to place and receive calls; it will also handle conference calling as a participant, not an initiator, and the first version leaves out SMS, call waiting and an integrated voicemail tool. Skype text chat, unlike voice traffic, will work fine over an EDGE or 3G connection.

Imperfect? Yes, and there are other apps — Fring and Nimbuzz, for example — that can talk to the Skype voice network… but the big blue S is providing the stamp of approval for VoIP on the iPhone, and you can bet that Skype’s app will shoot to the top of the App Store charts as soon as it’s released.

Tips: Screen Capture on MacOS X

February 25, 2009

Apple Logo

Mac OS X has a built-in ability to capture screenshots using simple keyboard commands, with shots saved to the Desktop as “Picture 1, 2, 3, etc.” This feature can be exceptionally useful for generating documents, or sending system configurations to friends and colleagues. Although most users are aware of the basic functionality of the screen capture feature, there are some hidden features that can really enhance the usability of screenshots.

Using “Screen Capture” Here is a list of the known features of “Screen Capture” (using key commands to take screen shots):

  • “shift-command-3” — The basic screenshot, will take an image of the full screen.
  • “shift-command-4” — The “selection” mode, will take a shot of the area outlined by dragging the cursor.
  • “shift-command-4” then tapping “Space” — The “Window” mode, will take a shot of the highlighted window.
  • “shift-command-4” dragging, then holding “space” — Drag mode, will allow the current sized box to be relocated.
  • “shift-command-4” then “options” — The “center” mode, will resize the box focusing on the center.
  • “shift-command-4” then “shift” — The “axis” lock, will resize while locking the movement to one axis, determined by initial mouse movement.

Pressing “escape” before releasing the mouse in any mode will cancel the screenshot.

Holding “control” in any mode (ie: “control-shift-command-3”) will output the results to the clipboard instead of to a file, allowing the contents to immediately be pasted into documents.

Go on, try it out yourself!
