Love those screenshots

IPodTouch screenshotI just learned how to take a screenshot on an iPod touch the other day (I know, I know--- better late than never, right?) On the off-chance that there are others like me out there who didn't have this handy information, here's the "411" on how to take screenshots from some common devices.

How to Grab Screenshots on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
Simultaneously hold down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons, then release them together. You'll find the resulting image in the Photos app --in the Camera Roll album on iPhone and in Saved Photos on iPad and iPod touch.

Take a Screenshot on your Android Device
Press the back button and press the center home button. The captured image will be saved in your gallery.

How to Take a Screenshot From Your Nook Color
Press the Vol- (Volume Down) button for a very short time, while also holding the Nook (Home) button. The screenshots will be available under the Gallery.

How to Take a Screenshot on Your PC
To make a copy of the active window, press ALT+PRINT SCREEN.
To copy the entire screen as it appears on your monitor, press PRINT SCREEN.
Then paste the screenshot into your preferred program that handles images (MS Paint, Word, etc).
