It’s Sunday again. Like every Sunday, I’d like to share with some of the most important and interesting stories of the last week. Many worth mentioning events took place, so if you think you missed something, don’t waste your time and take a look at our top posts.
Looks like it is possible to make any A5(X) device jailbreakable once and forever. Well, at least this is what iH8sn0w tweeted yesterday. What this all means is that your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad mini, Apple TV 3G, and iPod touch 5G can be jailbroken literally for life.
According to the latest job listings discovered by Jordan Kahn of 9to5Mac, the company from Cupertino is looking for a ‘New Product Operations Program Manager - iPod’ and ‘Product Quality Engineer - iPod’. What that means is that Apple is thinking about creating a new iPod.
After purchasing a music player, smartphone or tablet many users think of buying new headphones to replace original ones. Indeed some people just want a better sound quality and user experience, others search for a replacement of already broken ones. We have been able to take a look at Hitz MA2600 headphones from Creative.
First impression always starts from the process of unpackaging the box. Hitz MA2600 looks great, at first sight one can tell that these headphones are very well made. The design is bright and modern. These on ear type headphones have professionally-tuned 40mm neodymium drivers that must deliver excellent sound. There is also a microphone, so Hitz MA2600 can be used to make calls as well. Two options for color - black and white. Official web page positions Hitz MA2600 as a premium headset for music and calls. We are sure it is also good for movies and games.

Competition between headset's manufactures increasing. Many companies try to extend product lines and integrate new functionalities in their gadgets. Today we will try to find out how modern high-tech headset must look like and sound like. Our lab received Creative Sound Blaster Evo Zx couple weeks ago.
