Jailbreak and Unlock for iOS 4.1 is possible





According to the latest tweets from different hackers (MuscleNerd, pod2g and others) the exploit for iOS 4.1 has been already discovered:

Works on 4.1 (!) iBSS iv=c2c5416472e5a0d6f0a25a123d5a2b1c key=1fbc7dcafaec21a150a51eb0eb99367550e24a077b128831b28c065e61f894a0

I just successfully updated to 4.1 without a baseband update. PLEASE wait for 4.1.0 TinyUmbrella!!!

Crazy timing that @pod2g got latest exploit just as 4.1 went public (lots of work left...keep away from 4.1 for now!)

congrats to @pod2g for the latest exploit and also @p0sixninja who have been trying for months.

This means that the jailbreak and unlock for iPhone and iPod Touch is possible. However please be patient and wait for the utilities.

CNet Video: First Look at iPod Nano 6G



CNet shows the new iPod Nano 6th generation:

The good: The iPod Nano (sixth generation) is nearly half the size of the previous model, uses unique multitouch screen navigation, and includes a built-in clip.

The bad: Many features have disappeared, including video playback, camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock. The touch-screen interface is overkill, requiring more attention than the time-tested click wheel design without delivering many practical benefits.

The bottom line: The sixth generation of the iPod Nano is the smallest yet, but it comes at the expense of valuable features and practical controls.

iPod nano not iPod OS, not iOS, something new?



ipodnano2

Is it possible the new iPod nano isn’t running iOS, but isn’t running the old iPod OS, either? The latest firmware has hit Apple’s servers so developers are tearing into it and here’s what Steven Troughton-Smith had to say on Twitter: The nano codename is N20 it appears; also labelled as “1.0″ of the OS. Definitely not iOS. Rusty Mercury also says it’s running on a Samsung S5L8723, a step up from the previous Samsung 8730.

So what is this OS 1.0? something new? Something hybrid?

iPhone 3G Speed Test: iOS 4.0 versus iOS 4.1



We remember that iOS 4.0 was so slow on our 3G. Late last week, Apple announced, among other things, that iOS 4.1 fixed performance on the iPhone 3G. We put their claim to the test. In the video above, the iPhone 3G battles itself in an epic speed test to find out if Apple's claims are true: Is iOS 4.1 faster than 4.0, or is it just a wash?

Emergency Facetime calls?



emergency-facetime

Some users are interested in a little button that is located in the lower right corner of the latest iPod touch screen. What can it be? Is it one of the Photoshop errors by Apple developers? Or are these the guidelines for Emergency calls while using VoIP? Here is one more Photoshop error (do you see the picture?)

Next-gen iPad is testing FaceTime... right now



video call
Honestly, from this distance it's hard to tell what's going on, but 9 to 5 Mac says we're looking at a next-gen camera-equipped iPad fielded specifically to test video calls. The shot shows the unit in a Video Call debugging mode, hinting at FaceTime. This same mode was noted in the leaked iPhone 4 shots earlier this year. Additionally, The iPad 2 is also rumored to have a retina display.

Now that iPod touch has gotten a camera and FaceTime, can iPad really be far behind?

Griffin Wristlet's Protective Case for iPod Nano



griffin-ipod-nano-wristletThe latest iPod nano from Apple is rather cute, but it still risks getting lost in your pocket/purse. A built-in clip is a good way to fix it on something, but Griffin is planning to go much further, offering Wristlet casing, which is a protective case in the form of a bracelet for the iPod nano. Its functionality is self-evident, as it protects your iPod nano from scratches. Griffin Wristlet will be priced at $ 19.99 and now is available for pre-orders.

Users will be able to watch live todays Apple 2010 fall event (updated)



apple-event

Here are the latest news from Apple PR - they will live broadcast their event today:

Apple will broadcast its September 1 event online using Apple’s industry-leading HTTP Live Streaming, which is based on open standards. Viewing requires either a Mac running Safari on Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard, an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or higher, or an iPad. The live broadcast will begin at 10:00 a.m. PDT on September 1, 2010 at www.apple.com.

For people whose machines don’t match Apple’s requirements there will be a lot of re-streaming the event on Ustream and Justin.tv using Flash.

The other workaround is to use Open Source Video Player VLC and enter Apple's livestream URL in the streaming portion:

2.8-inch iPod touch for $99!



image-1According to iLounge, at this week’s event Apple is planning to unveil its new 2.8-inch iPod touch sporting the same resolution as latest versions of the device. It is said that the current Nano’s screen is a bit smaller, only 2.4 inches. At the same time it is running on the same processor (although it has less RAM).

The idea is pretty good, because it will help fill the gap between your Nano and Shuffle devices.

Some users believe that they would have difficulties in typing on 2.8-inch iPod touch, but we are sure that kids will really appreciate it. And the price is pretty funny, right?

Yet it is a very interesting concept. Just imagine Wi-Fi, web browser, email, 250, 000 applications from the App Store, maps, videos, photos and much more for $ 100 dollars. Is it tempting?

According to Pocketnow, Windows Phone 7 has something to show your iPhone and Nexus One. But we should not draw hasty conclusions.

Blogger Unofficially Beats World Texting Record With iPhone 4



GumballTech blogger Brian has used the standard iPhone 4 keyboard to break the world texting record, according to a video posted on YouTube.

After reading yesterday about Melissa Thompson, a 27-year-old British woman who used a Samsung Galaxy S smartphone and its Swype keyboard to set a world record of 25.94 seconds, Brian decided to test his skill.

The official phrase you need to type is: "the razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human". Brian typed this phrase and started and stopped the timer himself in 21.8s. Both his and Thompson's time have yet to be confirmed by Guinness World Records.
