關於這場演講

科技專欄作家David Pogue將十項簡單、聰明的訣竅分享給電腦、網路、智慧手機及相機使用者。當然,或許你已知道其中一些-但或許至少有一項不知道。

 

關於David Pogue

David Pogue 是《紐約時報》科技專欄作家及CBS新聞科技記者。他也是全球熱賣之「傻瓜指南」系列叢書作者,並著有「Missing Manual」電腦系列叢書。

 

為什麼要聽他演講

該選哪款手機?該買哪種軟體?望遠鏡相機是必需品或只是新奇玩意兒?隨著發表週期縮短及越來越袖珍的產品不斷推陳出新,人們越來越難決定哪種產品值得投資。David Pogue秉持孜孜不倦的探索精神,調查層出不窮的科技產品,替我們篩選了所有選項。

 

苦中作樂地歷經安裝夢靨、惱人的客服和永無止境地備份、升級及下載後,Pogue 藉由眾多專欄、上電視及指南叢書提供我們建議。他的建議包含可靠的見解、幽默感及難以忽視的有趣雙關語。此外,他還會藉由歌聲表達。

David Pogue 談節省時間之十大科技訣竅

 

我注意到一些關於社會和文化的有趣現象:任何冒險的事都需要證書。因此-例如學開車、擁有槍枝、結婚。

 

(笑聲)

 

對任何冒險的事來說確實如此,除了科技。因為某種原因,其中沒有標準程序、沒有基礎課程,人們只是給你一台電腦,讓你自生自滅。你該如何學會使用這種東西?僅能藉由經驗累積。沒人會坐下來告訴你:「它的使用方法是這樣。」因此,我今天打算告訴各位10件事,你認為眾所皆知,事實卻不然。

 

好,首先,在網路上,當你瀏覽網頁時,你想將頁面向下捲動,別拿起滑鼠、使用捲軸,那太浪費時間了,除非你領的是時薪。相反地,請按空白鍵。空白鍵可使網頁向下捲動一頁,長按 Shift 鍵(+空白鍵)即可回到原始頁面。因此空白鍵可使頁面向下捲動,適用於所有電腦的任何瀏覽器。

 

同樣地,在網路上,當你填寫一張像這樣的表格,例如你的地址,我想你們知道,可按Tab鍵從一個框跳到另一個框。若是填寫州名的彈出式選單呢?別點開彈出式選單,那太浪費精力了。重複鍵入你所在州名的第一個字母。因此,如果你想填寫康乃狄克州,請按C、C、C;如果想填寫德州,請按T、T,即可達成目標,甚至不需點開彈出式選單。

 

同樣地,在網頁上,當字體太小時,你可以長按Control鍵,然後點擊 +、+、+,每按一次都可使字體變大些,適用於所有電腦的任何瀏覽器。或按 -、-、- 使字體變小。如果你使用麥金塔,或許需替換成Command鍵。

 

當你在黑莓機、Android手機或iPhone上打字時,不須費心切換到符號介面,鍵入句號、空格,然後試著使下個字母變成大寫。只需雙擊空白鍵,手機會自動顯示句號、空格、轉換成大寫字母。按空白鍵、空白鍵即可,太神奇了。

 

同樣地,談到手機,以所有手機來說,如果你想重撥給之前的致電對象,只需按撥打鍵,它會將最後撥打的號碼顯示於框中,此時你可再次按撥打鍵,撥出電話。因此你不需要進入最近通話記錄,如果你打算聯絡某人,只需再次按撥打鍵即可。

 

有件事讓我抓狂。當我致電給你,在語音信箱留言時,我聽見你說,「請留言。」接著出現15秒該死的提示,彷彿我們45年不曾用過電話答錄機!(笑聲)我一點也不生氣。因此,事實上有個快捷鍵,可直接跳到像這樣的「嗶」聲。

 

(答錄機:請在嗶聲後留言-嗶)

 

David Pogue:不幸的是,電信公司並未採用相同的快捷鍵,因此視電信公司不同而有所差異,因此你必須自行找出適用於不同致電對象的快捷鍵。我可沒說這些技巧完美無缺。

 

好,在座大多數人認為Google是尋找網頁的工具,但它也是字典。輸入「define」和你想查詢的字詞,甚至不需點擊任何鍵,即可得到你所輸入字詞的定義。它也是完整的FAA(美國聯邦航空總署)資料庫。輸入航空公司名稱及航班,即可顯示航班、登機門、航站和飛行時間等資訊,不需使用應用程式。它也是單位及貨幣轉換工具。同樣地,不需點擊任何搜尋結果,只需將資料輸入搜索框,即可得到答案。

 

談到文件,當你想標示-這只是一個例子(笑聲)-當你想標示某個字,請別浪費生命,像菜鳥似地拖曳滑鼠;雙擊那個單字即可。請看200。我點擊兩次,精確地選擇了那個字。同樣地,別刪除你所標示的字,你可以直接輸入字詞,這適用於任何軟體。同樣地,你可以雙擊、拖曳,藉由拖曳一一標示出每個字詞,更加精確。同樣地,別費心將它刪除,直接輸入即可。(笑聲)

 

快門延遲是指按下快門鍵和相機實際拍攝瞬間的時間差,任何低於1000美元的相機都有這個惱人的問題。

 

(相機快門聲)(笑聲)

 

那是因為相機需要時間計算焦距和光圈。但如果你半壓快門鍵,進行預聚焦,然後按下手指,不再發生快門延遲!屢試不爽。我剛剛利用這個技巧,將50美元的相機變成1000美元的相機。

 

最後,這通常發生於你發表演說時。出於某種原因,觀眾緊盯投影片,而不是你!(笑聲)因此,發生這種情形時-這適用於Keynote、PowerPoint,適用於任何軟體-你只需要按字母B鍵,B代表變黑。將投影片變黑,讓每個人都看著你。當你準備繼續時,再次按下B鍵。順利的話,可按W鍵使螢幕變白。投影片變白後,你可再次按下W鍵,使它恢復原狀。

 

我知道我講得相當快,如果你錯過了什麼,我很樂意提供各位這張技巧列表。同時,恭喜各位,你們全都獲得加州技術證書。

 

祝你們擁有美好的一天。

 

(掌聲)

About the Talk

Tech columnist David Pogue shares 10 simple, clever tips for computer, web, smartphone and camera users. And yes, you may know a few of these already -- but there's probably at least one you don't.
 
About the Speaker
David Pogue is the personal technology columnist for the New York Times and a tech correspondent for CBS News. He's also one of the world's bestselling how-to authors, with titles in the For Dummies series and his own line of "Missing Manual" books.
 
About the Transcript
I've noticed something interesting about society and culture. Everything risky requires a license, so learning to drive, owning a gun, getting married.
 
(Laughter)
 
That's true in everything risky except technology. For some reason, there's no standard syllabus, there's no basic course. They just sort of give you your computer and then kick you out of the nest. You're supposed to learn this stuff how? Just by osmosis. Nobody ever sits down and tells you, "This is how it works." So today I'm going to tell you 10 things that you thought everybody knew, but it turns out they don't.
 
All right, first of all, on the web, when you're on the web and you want to scroll down, don't pick up the mouse and use the scroll bar. That's a terrible waste of time. Do that only if you're paid by the hour. Instead, hit the space bar. The space bar scrolls down one page. Hold down the Shift key to scroll back up again. So space bar to scroll down one page. It works in every browser on every kind of computer.
 
Also on the web, when you're filling in one of these forms like your addresses, I assume you know that you can hit the Tab key to jump from box to box to box. But what about the pop-up menu where you put in your state? Don't open the pop-up menu. That's a terrible waste of calories. Type the first letter of your state over and over and over. So if you want Connecticut, go, C, C, C. If you want Texas, go T, T, and you jump right to that thing without even opening the pop-up menu.
 
Also on the web, when the text is too small, what you do is hold down the Control key and hit plus, plus, plus. You make the text larger with each tap. It works on every computer, every web browser, or minus, minus, minus to get smaller again. If you're on the Mac, it might be Command instead.
 
When you're typing on your Blackberry, Android, iPhone, don't bother switching layouts to the punctuation layout to hit the period and then a space and then try to capitalize the next letter. Just hit the space bar twice. The phone puts the period, the space, and the capital for you. Go space, space. It is totally amazing.
 
Also when it comes to cell phones, on all phones, if you want to redial somebody that you've dialed before, all you have to do is hit the call button, and it puts the last phone number into the box for you, and at that point you can hit call again to actually dial it. So you don't need to go into the recent calls list, so if you're trying to get through to somebody, just hit the call button again.
 
Here's something that drives me crazy. When I call you and leave a message on your voicemail, I hear you saying, "Leave a message," and then I get these 15 seconds of frickin' instructions, like we haven't had answering machines for 45 years! (Laughter) I'm not bitter. So it turns out there's a keyboard shortcut that lets you jump directly to the beep like this.
 
Answering machine: At the tone, please — BEEP.
 
David Pogue: Unfortunately, the carriers didn't adopt the same keystroke, so it's different by carrier, so it devolves upon you to learn the keystroke for the person you're calling. I didn't say these were going to be perfect.
 
Okay, so most of you think of Google as something that lets you look up a webpage, but it is also a dictionary. Type the word "define" and then the word you want to know. You don't even have to click anything. There's the definition as you type. It's also a complete FAA database. Type the name of the airline and the flight. It shows you where the flight is, the gate, the terminal, how long till it lands. You don't need an app for that. It's also a unit and currency conversion. Again, you don't have to click one of the results. Just type it into the box, and there's your answer.
 
While we're talking about text, when you want to highlight -- this is just an example. (Laughter) When you want to highlight a word, please don't waste your life dragging across it with the mouse like a newbie. Double click the word. Watch 200. I go double click. It neatly selects just that word. Also, don't delete what you've highlighted. You can just type over it. This is in every program. Also, you can go double click, drag to highlight in one-word increments as you drag. Much more precise. Again, don't bother deleting. Just type over it. (Laughter)
 
Shutter lag is the time between your pressing the shutter button and the moment the camera actually snaps. It's extremely frustrating on any camera under 1,000 dollars. (Camera click) (Laughter) So that's because the camera needs time to calculate the focus and the exposure, but if you pre-focus with a half-press, leave your finger down, no shutter lag! You get it every time. I've just turned your $50 camera into a $1,000 camera with that trick.
 
And finally, it often happens that you're giving a talk, and for some reason the audience is looking at the slide instead of at you! (Laughter) So when that happens, this works in Keynote, PowerPoint, it works in every program, all you do is hit the letter B key, B for blackout, to black out the slide and make everybody look at you, and then when you're ready to go on, you hit B again, and if you're really on a roll, you can hit the W key for whiteout, and you white out the slide, and then you can hit W again to unblank it.
 
So I know I went super fast. If you missed anything, I'll be happy to send you the list of these tips. In the meantime, congratulations. You all get your California technology license.
 
Have a great day.
 
(Applause)
