Apple's Trade-in Program Now Covers Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone Devices





Apple has recently expanded its trade-in program in United States, Canada and a number of European countries to include Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone smartphones.

Moreover, from now on you can not only trade-in your older device directly in the Apple Store, you can mail it to Apple. As you may see, the guys from Cupertino do their best to make people get rid of their non-Apple smartphones and buy iPhones instead.

New TaiG Jailbreak Released with Support of iOS 8.1.2



As you probably know, Apple on Tuesday released iOS 8.1.2, which contained a fix for the issue causing the ringtones purchased on the iTunes Store to disappear from your device. Immediately after the release, users began to wonder if the latest version of the mobile operating system was jailbreakable.

As it turned out, the guys from Cupertino haven’t patched the vulnerability, which was used to hack the previous versions of iOS using TaiG jailbreak. That is why less than in a day after the release of iOS 8.1.2, the hackers released an updated tool for untethered jailbreak of the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system called TaiG 1.2.0. And that is surely a piece of good news for all those, who use jailbroken iPhones and iPads.

MuscleNerd Confirms TaiG Jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1 is Safe



MuscleNerd, a respected hacker in the jailbreak community, has confirmed via twitter that the TaiG iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak is safe.

Nothing too unsettling with that TaiG JB...just some light device fingerprinting. To see that, create an empty debuglog.cfg file next…
to the exe file. From then on, when you run the tool it'll log the urls accessed in a log/.log file.

An untethered jailbreak of iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.2 beta firmwares has just been released by TaiG. It also works for iOS 8.0 and iOS 8.1.

MuscleNerd confirmed the jailbreak over Twitter; however, he warns that you should probably wait a couple days before attempting.

Looks like TaiG just released a jailbreak for 8.1.1 (and 8.0,8.1,8.2beta). Best to wait a few days just in case

TaiG was part of the controversial iOS 7 jailbreak from the Evad3rs. The jaibreak included the TaiG 'app store' for cracked apps by default in China. Following an outcry from the community the evad3rs responded by updating their jailbreak tool to remove TaiG.

Microsoft Releases New Cortana vs. Siri Ad



Microsoft has recently released another anti-Apple ad. This time it's a short clip featuring an iPhone 6 with Siri virtual assistant and a handset with Windows Phone 8.1 and Cortana on board. As you might have guessed, the guys from Redmond mock Apple's creation claiming their product is more efficient, functional and user-friendly.

Anyway, let's get back to the main topic. Today, Microsoft advertises Cortana's ability to create contextual reminders and traffic alerts based on the latest traffic data. Take a look at the video below and you'll understand what I mean.

Microsoft Releases New Surface Pro 3 Ad Featuring MacBook Air



Microsoft has recently released another ad. As you might have guessed, in the short video one of Apple's products is compared to one of Microsoft's products. To be honest, I don't understand how a tablet can be compared to a laptop with normal keyboard, operating system and completely different form factor. I should probably ask the guys from Redmond as they seem to be comparing Apple's MacBook Air with their Surface Pro 3 on a regular basis.

Anyway, let's get back to the most recent commercial. This is the second ad from the so-called MacBook vs. Surface Pro 3 series. It is entitled "Winter Wonderland" and is available below.

Apple's iPhone 5s, Samsung's Galaxy S5, Nexus 5 and Other Devices Hacked by Security Researchers



At the annual two-day Mobile Pwn2Own conference held earlier this week by HP, several groups of developers managed to find a number of bugs in iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms and successfully hacked Apple's iPhone 5s, Samsung's Galaxy S5, Google's Nexus 5, Microsoft's Nokia Lumia 1520 and Amazon's Fire Phone. What I find interesting is that the hackers were able to get full control over all of the handsets except for one. You will never guess, which device turned out to be the most reliable.
