The PanguTeam on Saturday released an important update on the status of its jailbreak utility for iOS 8 - 8.1. As you probably know, earlier this week, the hackers released a new version of untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 - 8.1. It should be noted, however, that this version turned out to be very unstable and was available only for Windows users, that is why the PaunguTeam decided to pull the update back and make it available only for jailbreak developers.
Saurik has released an iOS 8 compatible version of Cydia for manual download following the release of an untethered Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8 - iOS 8.1.
I've given a new version of Cydia Installer in the form of a standard jailbreak bootstrap for inclusion in a new version of their jailbreak. I've also pushed the .deb of the iOS 8 version of Cydia to apt.saurik.com for manual download, but not yet to my repository. A lot of thanks goes out to limneos, who tested the new build for me, as I was at an airport (and now am frantically typing this message while they figure out how to retract the jetbridge from the plane I'm on that is about to take off).
Recently the Pangu8 jailbreak was released for Windows only, and without a compatible version of Cydia. Now that the compatible Cydia deb has been released you can download it from here:

Need to stream Apple’s live event on a Windows machine? Like last time, Apple’s iPad/Mac Oct. 16 press event won’t be streaming on Windows and this time around requires Safari on a Mac, iOS device or an Apple TV. That means that Windows users will have to figure how to get the stream going using the workaround we posted last time.
You’ll need to download VLC player and check back here tomorrow for the final streaming link to complete the instructions:
Apple previously announced that it would be live streaming Thursday’s iPad and Mac event, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that the company is pushing out an Apple TV channel to stream the video. It is a bit surprising, however, that the channel is already available at midnight Pacific time. It’s usually much later in the day that it appears.

You have probably seen Microsoft's ads comparing Apple's iPhone and Siri to the devices working on Windows Phone 8 platform with a virtual assistant called Cortana. A new interesting piece of news appeared on the Internet today, which deals with Cortana. As it turns out, the actress Jen Taylor, who is the voice of Microsoft's virtual assistant, is actually using an iPhone.
Microsoft released a new ad today, which shows us Apple's Siri compared to Cortana. The short clip is entitled Siri vs. Cortana – Mirror Mirror and features the iPhone 5s and the HTC One M8 for Windows 8.

According to the latest figures from a research firm Net Applications, the global usage of Apple’s iOS as an operating system has fallen behind Android. Well, of course, the market in terms of the so-called install base has been for months or even years led by Google’s mobile operating system, but this is probably the first time when the guys from Cupertino lost the competitive struggle in terms of the actual user base.
Microsoft has recently released a new ad, where company’s virtual assistant Cortana is compared to Apple’s Siri. In the short video we may see how Cortana successfully performs a number of contextually-aware tasks using several popular services. Siri, surprisingly, failed to perform the same task.
It is always hard to choose good stereo system for home or office use. With growing popularity of smart devices, like iPhone or iPad, most users demand wireless features, for example, bluetooth support.
