Bluetooth keyboard and iPhone in use





You probably remember a video that we showed you a while ago: communication of the iPhone and the Apple Wireless keyboard via Bluetooth. That video was described by all as a fake. So the author created another video.

Both the keys and the display are in camera focus at the same time, iPhone is in Airplane Mode (so WLAN is intentionally off here) and it uses a simplified mechanism for key event injection (so there is no “VNC running on localhost” icon any longer).

I believe this video is not a fake, but where is bluetooth icon ...?

A head-mounted display with head-tracking technology intended to reduce viewer fatigue and disorientation by simulating a theater or other viewing environment.

The wearer of the device can pick a seat in the fake theater and then manipulate the image, zoom in and out, and look around thanks to an accelerometer and gyroscope built into the goggles.

Apple’s iPhone signal strength is fake?



Firmware version 2.1. It is supposed to display “more accurate” signal strength. Well... it appears that “more accurate” may mean “unreasonably generous.”

Users can actually see the results of iPhones dB meter. Dial *3001#12345#* then press “Call”. A dB reading below 50 generally indicates good strength.

Here's what I've got:

iPhone Atlas reader Michael did some testing, and found that widely varying dB readings resulted in the same five-bar signal indicator on his iPhone. He writes:

Be carefull - avoid fakes



Be very very carefull. Because there are so many fake web sites came out recently. Do not trust names like quickpwn.com. There sites pretend to be DevTeam. Applications that those sites give you might be dangerous for your iPhone. Some sites ask for donations. Remember DevTeam don't do it.

There is only one DevTeam's site: http://blog.iphone-dev.org. When I publish news about some new version of QuickPwn, WinPwn, PwnageTool and etc, I use links from DevTeam's site. Everything else could be harmful fake.
