New version of AirPrint Hactivator is Available





AirPrintHacktivator

As we wrote earlier, the latest release of Mac OS X 10.6.5 did not include the support for AirPrint, though Apple had earlier announced it. After a while the guys at Netputing released an app called AirPrint Hacktivator, which was simply copying system files from those developer betas of OS X 10.6.5 that had AirPrint support implemented.

But eventually Netputing received an e-mail from one of Apple's legal representatives omm.com,  where it was asked to remove any versions of AirPrint Hacktivator from the company's site as they redistribute Apple’s source code.

The guys were forced to agree but have kept a good heart and finally came up with a new solution:

Some MobileMe features going free for iOS users?



mobileme

Apple seems to bring some free options to their paid MobileMe service. As you can see in the shot above, the code shows free MobileMe accounts for iOS devices. The code also says “This Apple ID cannot be used for MobileMe Mail, but you can use it for other MobileMe services.” That means that free accounts may be used for features other than email, as this message specifically restricts certain Apple IDs from being used with MobileMe Mail. Other MobileMe iPhone services include Find My iPhone, iDisk, Contact/Calendar/Safari/Notes over-the-air sync, and Photo Galleries. So, may be Apple will begin offering MobileMe syncing services for free.

iPhone 3G Performance On iOS 4.2



After iOS 4 release in June, it was laggy and generally not a good experience for many iPhone 3G users. Nevertheless, the due to release iOS 4.2 is running pretty well on iPhone 3G. Here is a video of iPhone 3G running the iOS 4.2 GM version, which is usually identical to the final release. The video was shot by TIPB.com. There were not any significant lags, and the keyboard was responsive. But, as usual,  the real problems appeared after some usage time , when you bloat the system with all your email, calendar entries, and vast number of contacts.

image size controller

With the arrival of iOS 4.2 on the iPad, Apple will give its users more control over the quality of images they share through email. The iPad will get the image quality setting feature. Now a new field will appear in the new message creation screen. This field should indicate the size of your email. If you tap it, you’ll be presented with a selection of sizes for your pictures, namely: “Small,” “Medium,” “Large” or “Actual Size.” The changes will be applied to all images in the same email. Unfortunately, it is impossible to change size of a separate image in the email.

itunes

Apple sent e-mails to music label representatives to inform them that it that it is preparing to extend the length of iTunes Store song previews in the United States. The new 90 second samples only affect songs that are longer than 2 minutes and 30 seconds, with shorter songs keeping the original 30 second preview length. The company believes that longer songs samples will lead to more purchases. Apple's email notes that by continuing to offer their music on the iTunes Store, labels are indicating their acceptance of the new terms.

Macs Will Get USB 3.0 support later



appleports

Recently released MacBook Airs don't have USB 3.0, and there are many rumors whether Apple will ever adopt this technology and when it will happen. But this week someone named Tom Kruk asked Steve Jobs via e-mail why no Mac with USB 3.0 is still available and received an answer. Here is it:

“We don’t see USB 3 taking off at this time. No support from Intel, for example.”

So that means we can expect USB 3.0 support as soon as Intel will adopt its platform.
