Another iOS tip: did you know you can take a screen shot on your iPhone/iPad by pressing the home button and power button at the same time? (UserQ)

I have yet to meet someone who doesn't know that even though I have met someone with an iPad 2 that had no clue about multitasking

Any kid these days knows that... at least in America. 

Lol: the richer u r the less chance u knew u could do it...

65% of males did not actually read the question

I just figured this out a few weeks ago while playing words with friends. I'm 15 but just got my phone in December...

Did u know if u double tap the home button it brings up recent icons and if you swipe them to the right you have the option to turn off auto rotate, along with other things???

I learned about this in a "tips and tricks for iOS 3" app (back in November). I have found it VERY useful.

Can't seem to wait until iOS 5 comes out.

Dyl-- that most likely relates to the age brackets

It's funny when you look at the ages. Almost EVERYONE 18 and under knows it and most people over 40 don't know it.

I always wondered how people posted screenshots from their phone. (only have had this for a few months) Thanks for the tip. :)

My four-year old son did this many times by accident a couple years ago, I finally figured out how he did it. It's very helpful when searching for and saving recipes!

a screen shot or a camera shot?

06/28/11 8:45 pm

Come on, gardianlh. Don't be so harsh. Some are brand new users, and others don't go online & read the whole manual or look up tips.

I do now... Not reAlly sure when this will be useful though.

06/28/11 7:09 pm

By accident but i do alot now

06/28/11 6:35 pm

Found it by accident a looooong time ago...

06/28/11 5:55 pm

I think it's called the sleep/wake button, but whatever.

I knew this already but I always forget... So thanks for reminding me again! ^-^

06/28/11 5:02 pm

Wow now I can say I leaned something today. Thank you.

06/28/11 4:30 pm

Wow really? This Q is kind of a waste.

06/28/11 12:34 pm

I found that out by accident years ago.

if u look at the income, the people with more money know less.

Until I was 19... And had the biggest thing of the times, a beeper. My parents (69), still can't figure out how to log off my kids gmail acct to check theirs... They didn't grow up with tvs... Only radios...
Makes sense when you think about it

@soccerproj- that's not so strange... The older you are, the less you have been raised around advanced technology. For instance, my son (12) always had a computer in the home... Had a phone at age 6... And works on Macintosh at school. I (34), didn't have a computer until college... No phone

I think early adoption is more a mindset than an age related thing. there are early adapters and laggards in every demographic set.
