iOS Task Switcher concept explores feature's potential

The Verge forums user Sentry posted the concept art you see above for the (underutilized) iOS task switcher, and I think it's awesome. Sentry's vision adds a lot of worthwhile information to the multitask bar without sacrificing the clear layout. The app thumbnails are great, but I really...

Dear Aunt TUAW: Help me ditch the screenshot shadow

Dear Aunt TUAW, I miss my old style screenshots. I use screenshots a LOT for presentations and training purposes -- specifically the window-only snapshot (cmd-ctrl-shift-4 followed by the spacebar). This feature is still in Lion; however, it now includes a pretty big drop shadow with the...

Screenshot Plus and iWork: the poor man's screenshot editing suite

Despite their office productivity leanings, the iWork suite of apps (Pages, Keynote and Numbers) also serve as good image editors.
