Solve unusual problems with the ipad.
febrero 21, 2011

The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:

(a) force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 double-press the Home button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic – you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s email app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!

(b) restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s Mail app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

How to change the wireless network priority
febrero 19, 2011

Many folks these days have more than one wi-fi network set up. You might have one that’s connected to your Ethernet network and another that’s entirely separate. That way, guests, the kids or others who don’t need access to the wired network can connect to the second wi-fi network, which allows them to access the Internet.

Your Windows 7 based wireless laptop will try to connect to those networks in the order in which they appear in its list of networks – which might or might not be the priority you prefer. The good news is that you can change the order of the wireless networks in your computer’s wi-fi properties. Here’s how:

1.- Click Start | Control Panel
2.- Click Network and Sharing Center
3.- In the left pane, click Manage Wireless Networks
4.- In the list of wi-fi networks, right click the one that you want Windows to try first, and select Move Up
5.- Move it up to the top of the list
6.- Click OK to close the dialog box

Now Windows will try your top priority network first, which should make connection a tad faster.

Ipad Swipe a cross the screen
febrero 17, 2011

In the Home screen or the Photos app, for example, there’s no need to swipe across the entire width of the screen to change the screen or the picture. Instead, only a small swipe motion is required. For example, to advance images in the Photos app, position your left thumb at the left edge of the screen (where it likely is if you’re holding the iPad with your left hand supporting its weight) and just flick the thumb half an inch right-to-left or left-to-right.

How to control sharing of files in a homegroup
febrero 12, 2011

One of the new features in Windows 7 networking is the homegroup, which makes sharing files (especially media) and printers between computers in a non- domain environment easier. Homegroup uses the Windows 7 libraries to do this. You can specify which libraries should be shared. Here’s how:

1.- Click Start and in the search box, type homegroup
2.- In the Change Homegroup Setting dialog box, check the boxes for the libraries you want to share from the list (Pictures, Music, Videos, Documents). You can also check to share printers here.
3.- Click Save Changes.

If you have specific folders within a shared library that you don’t want to share, here’s what you do:

1.- Navigate to that library in Windows Explorer.
2.- Click to highlight the file you don’t want to share or right click it.
3.- In the toolbar, or in the right context menu, click Share With and select “Nobody.” A “locked” icon will display on the file to let you know it’s not shared.

Alternatively, you can share the file only with certain people, by clicking “Specific people…” in step 3, and then selecting the user names of those with whom you want to share.

How to Recover iTunes’ Playlists
febrero 9, 2011

I accidentally deleted my Most Played playlist. How do I get that back?

Whether that’s one of iTunes’ default playlists or one configured yourself, you’re talking about a smart playlist, which is the easiest to re-create — all you have to remember are the parameters, and iTunes does the heavy lifting of finding the songs. Press Command-Option-N for a New Smart Playlist (also in the File menu), and whip up something like Kind Does Not Contain Video, however many tracks you like, selected by Most Often Played. If you want to exclude podcasts, music videos, and so on, add more conditions and use the dropdown menus to exclude by Media Kind.

Move this XML file to the Desktop, then reimport it back into iTunes to recover your old library, playlists and all.

But if you deleted a regular playlist (rather than a smart one), you can still get it back, provided you haven’t added any new content to your iTunes library in the meantime. Start by shutting down iTunes. Locate your iTunes folder — usually at /Users/your-username/Music. Inside, look for a file called iTunes Music Library.xml, and drag it out of the folder and onto your Desktop. Next, move the iTunes Library file to the Trash.

Now, open up iTunes, and select File > Library > Import Playlist. Use the file-selection window to navigate to the iTunes Music Library
.xml file currently marooned on your Desktop. Boom! iTunes will automatically re-create your lost playlist. As we warned earlier, make sure not to import any new content to your iTunes library until you’ve first imported the iTunes Music Library.xml file. Doing so will alter your iTunes music library, thus rendering the XML file useless.
