Fring for iPhone Gets Updated With Video Calls





Fring has added video calling support to the iPhone and iPod touch via Skype. This is a huge step further. iPhone became a videophone!

It works on Fring to Fring, and Skype to Fring. Unfortunately, it's not bi-directional. You would be able to see whoever is calling you from a desktop, but you won't be able to transmit your image. The reason is because the iPhone doesn't have a front camera, so you can't do face to face. The application will support two-way video calling if the iPhone and iPod touch gain front-facing cameras in the future. The company already supports two-way video calling on several Nokia phones with such cameras.

Walky: robot controlled by the iPhone [Video]



Here's a cute little Walky robot controlled via iPhone. It is able to walk, run, jump and kick a ball.

Secure your jailbroken iPhone against worm and hacker attacks



MobileTerminalicon

This is quite simple. If you did a jailbreak on your iPhone you need to change the default password. Why? Because hackers can access your phone, read your mail, sms, download other data. The second reason is because there are already several viruses (worms) that use these default passwords.

Here's a quick step-by-step tutorial.

  1. If you don't have MobileTerminal application installed: for 4.х and 5.x firmwares we have a good step-by-step tutorial, for 3.x just run Cydia, search for MobileTerminal and install.
  2. Run MobileTerminal.
  3. Type passwd and press return.
  4. Enter the default user password alpine and press return.
  5. Enter a new password and press return.
  6. Enter a new password again and press return.
  7. Congratulations, you changed it for default mobile user. Let's do the same for root user.
  8. Login as root user: type su root and press return.
  9. Type alpine for password
  10. Type passwd and press return.
  11. Enter a new password and press return.
  12. Enter a new password again and press return.
  13. That's it!

The passwords are now changed, and your jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch is now a bit more secure than it was before and less vulnerable to the worm detected recently.

Update: Step-By-Step Tutorial: How to install MobileTerminal on iPhone with iOS 4.x and 5.x
