Has your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch’s home button become unresponsive? Do you have to press two to three times to get back to your home screen? Well today, I’ll show you a little tip for making your iOS device’s home button more responsive. This little trick has been out for a while now, but I wanted to share it with those of you who have not heard about it.

Step 1: Open a stock application like the stocks app or the notes app.
Step 2: Hold the sleep/wake button until the “slide to power off” screen appears, but don’t turn off the device.
Step 3: Hold down the home button until the “slide to power off” screen goes away and you are brought back to the home screen.
Now test out the responsiveness of your home button. See if there is any improvement. Your home button should be a lot more responsive now than it was before. Let us know how it turned out for you!
According to several sources, the American retailer TJ Maxx will have the iPad 2 for 399$ in-stores tomorrow. Last year, Steve Jobs said that TJ Maxx was not an official reseller of Apple products, so the sale is in doubt.
However, by a picture shown to your left of a TJ Maxx receipt from @idannyocean on twitter, the sale does appear to be real. The 399$ TJ Maxx is clearly shown at the bottom right-hand corner. We will be following up on this as new updates come in. Will you be getting yourself an iPad 2 if the sale comes through?
*update: The iPad 2s are low in stock and are not available in every retail store, but if you can find yourself one, then the sale is real.

This was a predicatble move by Apple as Siri in the iPhone 4s is one of the few factors, apart from its internal improvements, that makes the iPhone 4s worth the upgrade from its predecessor.
However, as seen before, developers will continue to try to port Siri over to devices like the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 3gs, and with some luck they just might be able to do it.
