set data cap limit

If you’re anything like myself, you dread that time of the month when the cell phone bill comes in. There’s something about paying close to $70 a month for 6 GB’s of data that bothers me. Especially when my computers ISP would allow me 25 GB’s daily for close to the same price.

It gets even worse though when you go over your cellular usage limit. That’s when they really start to gouge you. All of a sudden you’re paying very heavily for a small amount of data.

Within iOS on your iPhone or iPad you’re able to track your data usage, and manually reset the statistics for monthly cycles. The drawback with this is it doesn’t always prevent overusing data since it doesn’t actually notify you when it’s going over the limit. Another hindrance is that you need to manually reset it at your monthly billing cycle, and it’s easier to forget to do that than it is to remember to do it.

setup home sharing to apple tv

When you buy content from the iTunes store it is accessible from the Apple TV via iCloud without having to connect to your computer. However, when you convert the videos yourself to your iTunes Library those video will require that your Apple TV be able to connect with your iTunes Library, whether it be on a PC or Mac.

Setting up Home Sharing is different from simply using AirPlay. Instead of streaming your entire Mac screen to the Apple TV, it just streams the video or music. Also, there is no need to enable Airplay on your Mac and send the signal to your Apple TV. You can peruse the contents of your media collection from within the Apple TV, making finding that perfect Friday night movie easy to find from your couch.

search safari ipad

When I first got my hands on iOS 7, I was a little worried and confused. I thought Apple had removed the ability to search in Safari on iOS 7. With the release of iOS 7, the function of searching in Safari on an iPad, iPhone and iPod has changed.

Before with previous versions of iOS, there was a search bar right beside the URL field. With iOS 7, the URL field and search field were merged together.
