There's really no point to Dvorak on an iPhone. The supposed efficiency of the Dvorak layout assumes that you're able to use all 10 fingers. A smaller screen like that would need a completely different layout. A layout optimized for the iPhone would need to take different things into account, because you're using thumbs rather than all your fingers. ...

I use AnyDVD to remove the copy-protection and Handbrake to rip it to an iPhone compatible size and format. Then I drag it into iTunes to put the resulting video on my iPhone. It should work exactly the same for your iPod Touch.

Wi-Fi sync exists, but only for jailbroken iDevices.

Probably never since many versions of iTunes run under wine. You can visit wineHQ to see which version of iTunes work under wine & which do not. In a nutshell: avoid the 'bleeding edge' of iTunes as access to the store is about the last thing to get working apparently.

Is this something you want? If you have jailbroken your iPod Touch, you can use Cydia to check the disk usage. Cydia->Manage->Storage, then you'll see a nice pie chart.

Actually, you probably do need to pay for it twice. When you 'bought' it, you (presumably) payed for a single licence for a single device. Regardless, on OS X Leopard, it should be in: Library/iTunes Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Windows username>\Application Data\ Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates And in Vista/7: ...

It's called a "restore". :) Anyway, before you do a restore, trying doing a "reset" first. If not, do a "restore" and there is a very high chance that the problem will go away.

Handbrake is easily automated by creating a batch script using HandBrake CLI (see the links found at the end, or just simply google for many examples).

I have been using a Logitech Harmony H-659 remote for several years and absolutely love it. The Harmony remote series come with software (or you can download it from their site) that allows you to configure your Harmony remote through USB. You create an account, and Logitech stores your remote configuration so that you can reload it onto your remote ...

This may be a little late, but I'd like to bring forward a similar post on another answers-type site. The responses there offer two options : SuperSync (US$20, Win/Mac) and SlingShot (US$30, Mac only). Both programs offer a demo version. Both programs can sync iTunes libraries across multiple computers, keeping all files in check. Unfortunately, the FAQs ...

No Apart from changing all the artists to something like "ZZ 3 Doors Down", it cannot be done.

You could try using DoubleTwist; you can use it without having anything else installed. It's free and works on both Mac OS X and Winows.

Probably not. There is no direct official way from Apple. I have created apps using the iPhone SDK and I can tell you there are no frameworks to do this either. Maybe there is some solution if you jailbreak it but I couldn't fine one. Honestly, PC microphones are like $5, just buy one and save yourself the frustration this will bring.

The accepted answer is excellent, but I'll add this last point: the iPhone's auto-correction algorithms depend on knowing the proximity of the "keys" to each other. For example, on a QWERTY keyboard, "Y" is next to "T", so when I type "YESY", the phone knows that I probably meant to type "TEST". It's important to recognize that not only does the phone have ...

I would assume that it is probably running straight off of USB power, considering there are other more power intensive devices that are able to run off USB... a simple iPod I would imagine would not consume all that much power.

Short answer: YES. Turning wifi off means the device won't look for networks to join, so it does less. So you get more battery life for other things. On the other hand, iOS has some significant power management improvements that have resulted in better battery life for me (on my 3GS) anyway, so the improvement might be minimal on top of what's already ...
