Over in the United Kingdom, the word is that iPads and iPods are saving lives. Not through the power of their magic Apple logo, of course — as doctors and nurses Middlesbrough’s James Cook University Hospital claim (via the Gazette Live), the Cupertino company's easily portable units allow the hospital to sideline the hassle of paper notes and focus on the information that demands immediate attention.

Using the iPod touch, for instance, medical personnel can monitor their patients' health through the help of specialized apps that produce immediate reports on a person's vitals and deliver alerts if something seems awry. The staff at the hospital also use networked iPads to check on each patient.

"The key benefits of the system is the more rapid identification of deteriorating patients which in pilot sites has led to a reduction in hospital and critical care length of stay and a reduction in mortality — all of which are a huge benefit to both patients and clinicians," said Tricia Hart, the head of South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Even more remarkable, the hospital is reporting such success just a few weeks after the program launched on June 23. The South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust obtained £1 million ($1.69m) for the project in March, and the use of Apple's devices at James Cook marks only the first step in a much wider adoption of the project throughout Britain.

Hotels often make a big deal about how much their premises make you feel "at home," but according to the Wall Street Journal, Hilton's upcoming app will let you walk straight up to your room after your arrival like you own the place. No more of that nasty socializing with the folks behind the counter business; you'll be able to bypass human interaction altogether.

We've covered this kind of stuff before, but it's always been for comparatively small regional chains or tests before wider rollouts. (Back in January, for instance, Starwood Hotels and Resorts implemented a similar program for two of its Aloft hotels in Manhattan and in Apple's own Cupertino.) Hilton's adoption of the feature marks one of the first steps to making the practice common at internationally recognizable hotel chains.

Hilton, in fact, is already halfway there. The current app for the influential hotel chain lets you check in through the app, but you still need to run up to the front desk if want your keys. That'll change in the future, though — specifically, sometime next year. By 2016, according to the WSJ, you'll be able to use your iPhone has your hotel key at all of the company's locations worldwide.

Pity, then, that they'll probably still charge you an arm and a leg for Wi-Fi.

Every Monday we show you how to do something quick and cool using built-in OS X utilities such as Terminal, Apple’s command line application. These easy hacks can make life better and simpler, and don’t require any knowledge of coding — all you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!

In OS X Mavericks, Apple introduced a new feature called App Nap. This feature was designed to cut CPU and other computer resources to power-hungry applications when those applications are not currently in use. It's one of several OS X features that has helped increase the battery life on Mac portables, but unfortunately, this feature isn't without downsides. If you're noticing that applications don't complete their tasks in a reasonable amount of time, then it could be due to resources for those apps being cut when they are backgrounded or left unattended. Following this guide will show you how to disable App Nap when these issues arise.

Disable App Nap on a Per-app basis

If you're noticing that only one application is having difficulties with App Nap, then you can easily disable it by locating the application in question and pressing Command + I (or choose "Get Info" from the contextual menu). In the Get Info window, check the option to "Prevent App Nap" and you're done. App Nap will no longer affect this application. (Not all applications offer this option.)

Disable App Nap system-wide

If issues still persist with your applications and App Nap, or you don't worry about system resources being utilized resulting in battery life issues (such as on a desktop Mac), then you may want to disable App Nap system wide on your Mac.

To disable App Nap on your Mac completely, simply open the Terminal application (located in /Applications/Utilities) and type in the following command followed by the enter key:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSAppSleepDisabled -bool YES

To completely disable this feature, you will need to log out of your account, then restart your Mac.

Re-enabling App Nap system-wide

If you realize that you want App Nap again on your system, open the Terminal application again, then type in the following command, followed by the enter key:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSAppSleepDisabled -bool NO

To re-enable this feature, you will need to log out of your account, then restart your Mac.
