The Tremblin’ Hand Man Taught Me Something.
The other day I was on the commuter train bouncing around Tokyo and I counted how many people were on their cellphones and how many were using a Smartphone or tablet. Shocker! About 80% of the commuters were busy moving their fingers all over the phones. Some were sending messages, some were playing games, and some were surfing internet. What about the other 20%? Well, 15% were sleeping on the shoulders of their neighbors and then the others, me included, were gazing out the windows daydreaming.
Then I looked at the older guy in his 70’s next to me using his iPhone. His hands were trembling like old people’s hands do. (Mine, not yet). I noticed something unusual about his finger style. When he didn’t want to touch the screen, he would place his right-hand fingers on his left wrist. Then I got it. I lot of people click things they don’t want to and sometimes end up buying something by mistake. This guy solved the problem of unwanted clicks by resting those shaking fingers on a stationary place off of the iPhone.
I was happy. Now I found the way to keep on surfing safely when I get a little bit older and start shaking myself.
They say that anyone with half a brain can use iPad at its basic level. Well, iPad, in fact, is very basic, even 2-year old kids can work well with it. There’s no such thing as a learning curve, and definitely, if you have used an iPhone before, using an iPad for the first time is a day at the beach. It is made to be that way.
But most of these people who say it’s not a hassle aren’t over 60 and they don’t remember analog or never experienced it. For us oldies who are newbies with internet, let me tell you, it is not that easy because of physical and mental coordination and memory.
But still, even when things have already been simplified by Apple, there are still some things about using iPad that may take time before you know them well. Here are a few:
1. Soft Reset
Apple’s iPad does not necessarily come with an insurance that it will perform the same way it did the first time you bought it. Although there are no moving parts in the device, which generally means the device deteriorates very slowly if at all. There are still some risks though that some of its parts may not function in the long run. In case something goes awry with iPad, you can always find consolation in its Soft Reset function.
Soft Reset comes in very handy when the system freezes. It can be performed by just holding the top or power button simultaneously with the front or Home button for a couple of seconds. This will force your device to restart. Not happy with how an app is working and want to force quit it? Hold the Home button the same way, this time without holding the power button, and the device will exit any running app.
2. Cut and Copy & Paste
It’s a pain to copy long texts on iPad so Apple created an easy solution that will let you copy an entire paragraph without necessary stretching the blue knobs that appear on your screen. To do this, tap any text four times and this will highlight the entire paragraph. This trick can be done only though if you are copying an editable text. Otherwise, you’re stumped.
3. Importing Free E-Books
There are still some free things in this world. Free eBooks on Apple’s iBooks for example. If you want to download old books that have fallen out of copyright, you’ll find that there is an extensive collection of free eBooks downloadable on iPad. So long as you stick to the classics, you’re a happy man with iBooks.
4. Easy Mute
When embarrassing moments are on the horizon because you frequently forget to turn off the volume of your multimedia device, you’ll find that iPad gives you a break. It has an easy mute function that allows you to automatically turn the volume off. For two seconds, press the volume down and you’ll have peace and quiet back.
5. Supersized Screenshots
Now the screenshot of your driving simulator would look more like a windshield than a tiny keyhole. Take giant screenshots on your iPad by holding the power and home buttons simultaneously for half a second.
6. Bring The Virtual Keyboard Back
Switching between keyboards, real and virtual keyboards, is not as hard as many people confess. You only have to hit the eject key on the real, physical keyboard to bring the virtual one up.
With these six tricks for iPad, your experience with this wonderful machine will become more enjoyable. Remember that just like everything else in life you have to practice and practice some more to become good. You can’t become great with iPad by reading this article. You have to do it. You have to train. You have to do it over and over again. Just like when us humans learned to talk, walk, and stalk animals. When we learned to plant, grow, and harvest food. If your fingers are bent and bumpy like mine, I wish you luck. Don’t throw your iPad in the river. Keep at it.

This has been going around the internet for many years,
but it really expresses what it is sometimes like for a baby boomer
who loves his 8-track and cassettes. They still call me Mr. Analog.
Does this sound similar to you, too?
TIP # 6
Put all your stuff in folders.
Drag all the things you download ( ebooks, articles, software, etc.) into folders
on your desktop so you can find what you are looking for quickly.
Label them with one subject each, such as: Affiliate Marketing, WordPress, List Building, Junk, Videos, and so on. This makes it really easy to find. Just right click, select X, and then Folder. A folder will pop up on your screen. Label it. Open your Documents, Downloads, and Pictures and drag them into the correct labeled folder. Be careful not to drag a folder into another folder. It’s difficult to find it when it vanishes from the screen. I know.
Also put all your files, downloads, everything on a USB. Your computer may go down someday and you’ll lose everything when it is recovered. I learned this the hard way.
If you are a better organized person than I am, then you probably won’t have the frustration and wasted time that I have had. You are a better man than I.
