How to take iPhone screenshots

Recently I was surprised that I have some screenshots of my iPhone in my photo gallery on the phone. Now I learned that it is really easy to take screenshots with your iPhone at any time:

Configuring Permalinks for WordPress is no big deal, because you only have to specify the structure of the generated links using the blog’s admin tool under Options -> Permalinks.
