Here's the Apple CEO in his own words talking during Apple Q4 Earnings Call:
Hi, everybody. As most of you know, I don’t usually participate in Apple earnings calls, since you’re all in such capable hands with Peter and Tim. But I just couldn’t help dropping by for our first 20-billion-dollar quarter. I’d like to chat about a few things, and then stay for the rest of the Q&A, if that’s all right.
First, let me discuss iPhone. We sold 14.1 million iPhones in the quarter, which represents a 91 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter, and was well ahead of IDC’s latest published estimate of 64 percent growth for the global smartphone market in the September quarter. And it handily beats RIM’s 12.1 million BlackBerrys sold, in their most recent quarter ending in August.
This is what MuscleNerd have seen while trying to make iPhone unlock for iOS 4.1 work. Quite strange and scary. While we can see that UltraSn0w 4.1 is not ready yet, this is good that the work is in progress.
After plugging in my test T-Mobile SIM for ultrasn0w @4.1, I saw these come in: http://is.gd/g7OR0 .. scary!
MuscleNerd, a hacker from DevTeam, recently published a screenshot of anticipated jailbreak utility PwnageTool 4.1. It will support iOS 4.1 and will be able to preserve old baseband for unlockers, who have not updated to iOS 4.1.
From the screenshot we can tell that PwnageTool 4.1 will support:
It was a real surprise when Steve Jobs appeared at the financial results conference call for Apple's Q4 2010 results. He commented some topics, including launch of rumored 7-inch iPad. Jobs criticized such size, saying that it was too small:
Boy Genius Report’s source claims that Apple almost completes the final field testing of a tweaked version of the iPhone 4, known as "iPhone3,2", which is expected to be the Verizon or CDMA-compatible iPhone 4 model. The iPhone3,2 will have similar SIM card slot to iPhone 4 slot, which is not suitable for CDMA phone. Perhaps, Apple is going to release model, which will provide support for both GSM and CDMA and will be compatible with all carriers. The source also reports that the fifth-generation iPhone has entered the "engineering verification test" stage, which the CDMA-based iPhone 4 completed in May.
Cult of Mac’s sources in Apple provide a new portion of information about a next-gen MacBook Air, which is expected to be released during the Apple's media event on Wednesday. Here is a short summary:
A German research group presented a concept of an “autonomous car”. This is a car, which drives itself, using special equipment to monitor road and environment. It is controlled by an iPad application. First of all, he iPad finds your location via GPS and sends it to the car. The autonomous cab can find you, pick you up, and take you wherever you want. Moreover, you may track the cab’s movement and scanner information directly from the iPad.
Last week Motorola filed another complaint in a U.S. District Court in Delaware. Current company's approach is to invalidate 11 patents that were awarded to NeXT Software and Apple (which are both known to be founded by Steve Jobs).
It is said in Motorola's suit that these patents were named in Apple's complaints against HTC and other handset makers that use Google's Android OS in their smartphones. That explains why company wants to prove that these patents are invalid.
Here is the list of the patents that were named in the lawsuit:
Designer Robert Potter has created the Earos Earcushion device – quite unusual contraction to make comfortable separation between your ear and iPhone. It may be used to provide convenient padding to your ear as well as display stand. The thing is universal; it hooks it up to most phone models. It rotates on two sided to provide access to a screen.
Now FaceTime may be used only via Wi-Fi, users should have iPhone 4 or iPod touch 4G. But FaceTime could soon surprise us. Recently was found some interesting FaceTime лун in iOS code, which demonstrates that soon it can receive multi-chat feature. It means that FaceTime may enable multiparty conference calls with 3 or more people.
Tethering settings were added to 3G iPads after iOS 4.2 beta 2 for iPad was released. It may mean that Apple was going to add iPhone-like tethering to WiFi + 3G models of the iPad. But in newly realized iPad 4.2 beta 3 was discovered that Apple had removed such settings (see picture, earlier the tethering options were under the ‘Cellular Data’ fields). May be we will see these features in new iOS 4.2 in November or may be it was only mistake, and Apple is not planned for a future iPad software release.
Apple’s iPad is so popular round the world, and it’s not surprisingly that people from the areas that Apple hasn’t yet reached, want to obtain this device. Sometime they have to trip pretty long distances to get it.
Last week Engadget posts a single shot of a prototype MacBook Air. The prototype device is labeled "K18". On the picture they found USB plugs on the left and right sides of device, Mini DisplayPort and an SD card reader on the left, and a power plug on the right. The prototype on the picture is the same size and style, has the same "large single mouse button", same 1.86 GHz Core 2 Duo SL9400 processor and 2GB of RAM as the current model of MacBook Air. Engadget’s source claims that the shot was made early in April. Moreover, а new SSD Card storage is rumored to be installed in upcoming MacBook Air. It's possible that such SSD Cards will resemble a stick of RAM.
Greenpois0n for Windows and Linux was released a few days ago. Today Chronic Dev Team created a Mac OS version.
Greenpois0n does jailbreak of firmware iOS 4.1 on the following devices:
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3G S
- iPod touch 4G
- iPod touch 3G
- iPad (iOS 3.2.2)
Greenpois0n uses that same exploit as limera1n.

The iPhone DevTeam have probably found a new method to jailbreak Apple devices with the A4 chip. This includes such devices as iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple TV. This is great news!
Think we've figured out a way to extend PwnageTool+limera1n+@comex hacks to untethered JBs for all future A4 firmwares
