Syncing multiple google calendars on iPhone

There are 2 ways to sync google calendars on the iPhone, depending on whether you are still using the old Exchange method, which is not supported for new accounts, or you switched to the new Google account method.

I am still sticking to the old Exchange method because I can choose the color of my multiple calendars. But every time I add a new calendar, I have to relearn how to get to the Exchange settings page. Which, due to its decommission, is increasingly difficult to find.

So here it is: http://www.m.google.com/sync/settings

For everyone who switched to the currently supported method of syncing Google calendars, which is directly through a Google account instead of setting up an Exchange account, the link to manage multi-calendar sync is: http://www.calendar.google.com/syncselect

Deleting or importing iPhone and/or iPad photos quickly on a Mac

There is a completely painless way to import and delete photos on your iPhone or iPad, if you use a Mac. Now, I have not tested this on all Macs, but I suspect most Macs would be able to do it.

1. Connect your iPhone or iPad to the Mac.

2. Launch the Image Capture tool by typing “Image Capture” in the Spotlight search bar (the magnifying glass found in the top right corner of the entire screen).

3. Import and delete as many or as few photos from your iDevice as you’d like!

Productivity hints:

Command + A is select-all, allowing you to select all of the photos and movies shown.

Pressing Command + mouse left-clicking allows you to select multiple items.

Shift + mouse left-clicking allows you to choose all photos within a range.

That should do it.
