iOS 8 Beta Successfully Jailbroken



After initial signs pointed towards a good chance that iOS 8 was jailbreakable, famous hacker Stefan Esser (nickname i0n1c), tweeted an image that shows off the ability to SSH into an iPod touch running iOS 8 from his Mac, which basically means he has successfully jailbroken iOS 8 on iPod Touch 5G.

I just leave this here ...

There is no information whether i0n1c will release a public jailbreak. Anyway, It would be logical to wait until iOS 8 is officially released so as to not burn any exploits.

Both Apple and Samsung are Found Guilty of Patent Infringements



Samsung infringed on Apple's patents. This is what the jury found out during the Apple vs Samsung trial. What is interesting, though, is that Apple was also accused of violating Samsung's patent for "Apparatus for recording and reproducing digital image and speech", so now it has to pay the South Korean manufacturer $158.400.

The week has nearly come to an end, so I think we should take a look at the list of the most interesting posts. Let's start.

If to speak about popular articles, they deal mostly with the iPhone and the iWatch. In particular, over the past few days a couple of physical mockups have appeared on the Internet that show how Apple's next-gen handset might look like. Nearly all of the mockups are based on the leaked schematics and renderings, that is why they look a bit similar.

Creative Hitz WP-380 review



Many users think of buying new modern wireless headphones to replace original old-type ones that came with a player or a smartphone. Today we will show you Hitz WP-380 headphones from Creative.

First impression always starts from the process of unpackaging the box. Hitz WP-380 looks great, at first sight one can tell that these headphones are very well made. The design is modern. These on ear type headphones have professionally-tuned 34mm neodymium drivers that must deliver excellent sound. There is also a microphone, so Hitz WP-380 can be used to make calls as well. Official web page positions Hitz WP-380 as a Lightweight On-ear Bluetooth Headset with NFC.

The box has the headset, small travel pouch, mini-USB cable for charging, standart 3.5mm audio cable and user manual.

The design is simple and modern. The quality is very good, just as you'd expect from device made by Creative. The headset sits comfortable and can be adjusted in several ways. The cups do fold, which is good. We find these headphones fairly comfortable and experienced no problems wearing them for a long time. WP-380 weights just 5.3 oz (150 g).

The microphone is hidden in the earcup, it's a little far from the mouth, it is  it is hard to use the WP-380 headset in a noisy place.

It is very easy to start listen to the music: you need is to turn on WP-380 and keep holding on/off button. The light goes blinking blue, which means it is ready to connect to some gadget. On the iPhone just navigate to Settings - Bluetooth, then find and select Creative WP-380 in the list of found devices. That's it. Easy! The working distance is approximately 33 ft (10 meters), which is enough to walk around the house with no need to carry your player or smartphone with you.

WP-380 can also connect to devices with NFC technology (Near Field Communication). Unfortunately Apple smartphones do not support NFC, while Android users will be happy to try NFC.

Another interesting fact about WP-380 is Creative ShareMe and Creative Multipoint. Creative ShareMe (one source, two headsets) allows you to share your music wirelessly with your buddy or loved one using another Creative ShareMe-enabled wireless headset. Creative Multipoint (two sources, one headset) allows you to pair two separate devices to the headset at the same time. This means that you can easily switch your music source between these two Bluetooth stereo devices.

There are several buttons to control the headset. The on/off button is used to turn headset on and off, to set up BlueTooth connection, and to answer the incoming call. Using next, previous, play/pause (combined with on/off button) is is possible to control the music, stop/play, skip to the next track or play the previous one. Volume buttons are used to control the volume. Unfortunately it is not possible to use Siri voice assistant on the iPhone, there is just no button for that.

The quality of the sound is very good. This is not a surprise, since Creative uses different software and hardware trick s to improve sound playback and recording quality. Middle and high frequencies are well done, bass is good as well. The built-in speech microphone with ClearSpeech Engine actively suppresses external noises and digitally enhances speech clarity so that your conversations are loud and clear.

By the way, users of iPad tablet and iPod Touch player can use this headset to talk via Skype and similar voip apps.

The compatible list of devices is quite high. Hitz WP-380 works with Bluetooth enabled devices as well as with with every phone and player that has a standart 3.5mm jack.

Creative WP-380 charges in about an hour. Internal battery gives us approximately 12 hours of playback time.
