Flash has been ported to the iPad. Unofficially of course. The project is called Frash and is basically a port of Adobe Flash runtime for Android running on iPad using a compatibility layer. Its coming from a well known iPhone hacker named comex.
The YouTube description of the video explains everything about the port as follows.
Frash is a port of the Adobe Flash runtime for Android to the iPhone, using a compatibility layer, by comex ( http://twitter.com/comex ). Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the MobileSafari browser. Frash currently only runs on the iPad, but support for other devices (3GS+ only due to technical restrictions) is planned, as well as support for iOS 4.
A release is planned for when Frash is stable. Developers are welcome to join the effort at http://github.com/comex/frash – fork it and send a pull request with your patches.

Take a look at video demo:
Alright... If anyone has their 3.1.2 SHSH blobs, NOT 3.1.3. Then I'll see if I can produce a tool that will do this job...
Here is a video demo posted by AKinGdom1:
The utility will be available soon. Might be as soon as tomorrow.
Apple has published an official public letter of response to concerns about the iPhone 4 signaling problems. Some would say this is very nice and great. Others would complain this is just a cop out. Well, at least we see that Apple is aware of users' problems. Apple claims, that it's just a software problem of calculating how many bars of signal strength to display. Apple says there is no hardware problem.
Here it the full letter:
Dear iPhone 4 Users,
The iPhone 4 has been the most successful product launch in Apple’s history. It has been judged by reviewers around the world to be the best smartphone ever, and users have told us that they love it. So we were surprised when we read reports of reception problems, and we immediately began investigating them. Here is what we have learned.
Take a look at this small video where Futurama makes fun of the zombie-like iPhone queues in the latest episode entitled "Attack of the Killer App":
Some people think that Apple should be handing out free cases to keep its loyal customers from going on a strike. But no such thing happens, and most users are stuck with the only official solution to spend $30 on a bumper for their iPhone. However, what you need is just a little ingenuity.
The Facebook application for the iPod touch/iPhone is now compatible with the iOS 4. Other new features are icons in high resolution, fast switching and also Korean/Russian localizations. There were also several minor bugs fixed.
Will.i.am from The Black Eyed Peas is reported to have used the MobileMe Find My iPad service to help catch a thief who had robbed his Bently, stealing jewelry and some other belongings worth $10,000 in total.
Will used the built-in tracking system on his iPad, located the criminal and reported his whereabouts to the police which found some of the stolen goods and gave them back to the singer.
Hip-hop superstar Jay-Z had a lunch with a friend at Nello on the upper east side of New York City. Jay-Z was showing his brand new iPhone 4. Both Jay-Z and his friend seemed to be shocked by something they saw on the iPhone's screen.
The initial launch of iAd rich media ads, featuring advertising from some of the world's leading brands, will begin July 1. At launch, we’ll roll out in North America and ramp up the number of ads served in the weeks and months ahead. For developers outside of North America, iAd will be rolled out in a few months.
Take a look:
The antenna problems of the iPhone 4 are still there. More and more people come across it, and in this video you’ll see the result of one simple touch that completely stops web-page loading.
The problem with the iPhone is not just about it not displaying the signal bars but actually about the real data loss. Quite simple: you leave your iPhone on the table and it loads the web-pages at a normal speed. You touch the problematic area, and the web-page stops loading.
Since the fault is in the design – the antenna is located all around the phone, and it’s quite hard to avoid it unless you have a case for it – at some point the problem is sure to affect everyone, unless you are very close to a cell tower.
While the iPhone is a great invention, at least 40% of the buyers have admitted that they are experiencing this problem, and in the UK the figure is as high as 93%. Apple hasn’t provided any solution yet, except the advice to buy a case or to hold the device in a different way.
"And most importantly, it comes with a double antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like and use it just about anywhere to make crystal clear calls. You have a voice. And you deserve to be heard."
Not the first case now! Seems like Apple is providing plenty of material for their rivals!
One of the main features of the iPhone 4 is the ability to record HD-video in 720 p. However, users have discovered that in order to get the video off the iPhone you have to connect the device to the computer and download the file. There are simpler solutions of course, such as sharing the video via e-mail or MMS directly from your iPhone or uploading them to YouTube or MobileMe, but in the process of compressing the files lose greatly in their quality, making the HD-option rather useless.
We know this is crazy, to burn the iPhone using big lens Let's watch:
Apple announced yesterday that applications targeting to iOS 2.x will no longer be supported. This means that apps for iOS 2.x will be rejected during approval process. Developers are encouraged to re-build their apps in Xcode and set the target to iOS 3.x or later so they will not run into submission or app removal issues.
