Send Photos in Full Resolution from Your iPhone [IPhone Tip]

Send Photos in Full Resolution from Your iPhone [IPhone Tip]

Even though your iPhone snaps pictures at pretty decent resolutions (2048×1536 from the 3GS, 1600×1200 on previous iPhone versions), your device automatically resizes photos to a measly 800×600 when you go to email them. Here’s how to fix that. The resized pictures may be enough under certain circumstances, but if you want your pics to make it through your email in their full glory, it’s a simple matter of copy and paste.

Reader CrasH suggests a few clever custom voicemail messages for busy times and unknown callers. I hate voicemail. It’s not a bad idea; I just loathe having to actually check my messages.

Undo Closed Window Coming in Firefox 3.5 [Beta Beat]

Undo Closed Window Coming in Firefox 3.5 [Beta Beat]

One of our favorite features of Firefox (and Chrome) is the undo closed tab option, a feature that resurrects an accidentally closed tab via your History menu or keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+t [Windows] or Cmd+Shift+t [Mac]); if you accidentally closed a whole window, on the other hand, you were out of luck. According to Mozilla Links, however, the nightly builds of Firefox 3.5 Beta 4 (which will most likely drop sometime this week) include a new Recently Closed Windows entry in the History...

Now you can officially hide or filter them. Whether you’re signed in or not, look for an “Options” button next to the “Text Comments” header just above where the usual repository of “SUX,” LMAO +1,” and racial/sexual/political slur fights start. You’ll see a checkbox...
