The rivalry between Microsoft and Apple is heating up again.
In a new advert for Windows 8, Microsoft has a real dig at the iPad by using Siri. The ad shows Windows 8 tablet and the iPad next to each other with Siri apologising for not being able to do what Windows 8 tablet can.
I am suprised that they got away with it but it did make me chuckle.
If you let your children use your iPad I would suggest that you turn off the ability to make in-app purchases. Otherwise a free game that your child is playing could end up costing a fair bit of money.
To do this you need to enable parental controls by going into settings and general. Within parental controls locate restrictions, enable it and enter a passcode. Once enabled scroll down the until you see In-App Purchases. Turn this off and then most apps won’t even show the screen for purchasing items or will not be allowed to make purchases.
Double-clicking the Home button shows you all the apps that are running on your iPad in a bar at the bottom of the screen. To switch to a running app just tap on it. When done swipe the screen downwards to remove the bar.
To close running apps, double-click the Home button and then Tap and hold down on any one of the Apps that is currently running. You’ll notice that each App will start to wiggle and now has a minus sign. Tap the minus sign of the Apps that you want to close.
