Apple uses a jailbroken iPhone in patent application



Recently we talked about Apple's second patent about biometric security. The funny thing is that the images used in this patent show a jailbroken firmware 1.x iPhone, with installed Installer.app, SMBPrefs  and the iWood Realize theme from the iSpazio repository. There are also "Terminal", "Game", "VRecord", "Blocks" and others.

Apple patents a biometric recognition system for iPhone and MacBook



Apple filed a new patent that shows a new system of biometric recognition for the safety of iPhone and MacBook. Currently the only way to protect our devices is to use a security code, which is not safe enough. In the future Apple plans to integrate a sensor below the screen to scan our fingerprints when we execute the "slide to unlock" .

Other security methods may be that the voice recognition or facial recognition. This might include the future implementation of a front camera. Apple goes so far as to suggest the possibility of recognizing the user's distinctive voice or even collecting DNA samples to recognize a user's genetic sequence. Biometrics could also be context-sensitive and detect the shape of a user's ear before allowing a call to go through, for example.

Overall it still seems somewhat science fiction, but could be implemented in the next model of the iPhone this summer.

Mjoy Removed From AppStore



Mjoy application allowed you to send free SMS messages from your iPhone and iTouch. Apple removed it from App Store, certainly because of complaints from mobile operators.

The application allowed to send SMS via WiFi and 3G, and therefore could be used wherever you were (which is quite inconvenient for the operators). Now it remains accessible to the webapp accessed through Safari www.mjoy.com, but certainly is not the same thing.
