JailbreakMe takes advantage of iOS security flaw: Why you need to worry about it

The screen where it all begins.

JailbreakMe is a web-based process of jailbreaking the iPhone, and its smoother than a ferry ride home from Alcatraz. Although it’s good news if your a timid Apple device owner who is hungry for “unsanctioned” apps, it raises security questions about such an escape.

Apple iPad becomes expensive fridge magnet with FridgePad

FridgePad iPad fridge magnet holder

On my fridge I have a magnetic bottle opener shaped like a pint of beer and a magnetic dead Kenny from South Park. Those are pretty cool, I suppose, but they pale in comparison to having an Apple iPad as an extra large fridge magnet. And that’s exactly what you can have with the FridgePad.

Another leak reveals iPod touch 4 with 2MP camera, or does it?

iPod Touch 4G could be a fake, we'll have to wait and see

The DVT stamp is only added to devices when the design is very close to production-ready. And that makes sense, since the iPod line is probably due for another refresh in time for the new school year in September. What makes me want to yell fake is the fact that it’s based around the old iPhone 3GS shell, wouldn’t the next-generation iPod touch be a bit more resemblant of the iPhone 4?

Apple Magic Trackpad for the desktop is real

magictrackpadg07272010

Apple’s Magic Trackpad seems to be a real product. It’s about as simple as ripping one out of a MacBook or MacBook Pro, giving it a battery holder, some Bluetooth love, and now it’s magically for the desktop. I would probably go for this in a heartbeat, as I’m pretty fed up with swapping batteries on the wireless “Magic Mouse” that magically drains a brand new set of AAs in 3-4 weeks, or AA NiMHs in 2-3 weeks.

Legal Jailbreaking could bring Flash to the iPhone and iPad

flash-iphone

News came today as the US Government announced new exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). One of the most notable and perhaps useless exemptions is the iPhone Jailbreaking grant. It is no longer “illegal” to Jailbreak your iPhone or other similar Apple device according to a U.S. Library of Congress ruling today.

So you wanna get a free bumper

bumper

Before this whole “grip of death” and “anatennagate” thing hit the masses, you may have already purchased an iPhone 4 and the bumper case to go with it. You forked out some hard earned money, and now Apple wants to give it back to you. Anyone buying a new iPhone 4 is now provided with a bumper case, which wraps all the way around the exterior bezel of the device, free of charge. That’s to stop the whole signal dropping problem. Naturally, people that paid for the bumper feel a little ripped off.

Release date for white iPhone 4 gets bumped once again

white-iphone-200

The white iPhone 4 has been delayed yet again. We may be led to believe that this is partly related to the whole “death grip” phenomenon, and it could be, but the official reason has something to do with the “manufacturing” process. Apple isn’t entirely clear about what the problem is, but some have said the issue is getting the paint thick enough to look good while still giving enough space to fit it in the case.

Samsung rejects Apple’s claims on the Omnia 2 antenna

Apple's test showing the Samsung Omnia II

Samsung today joined forces with RIM, Nokia and HTC by releasing their own statement towards Apple’s distraction of drawing the competition into their Antennagate problem. Apple’s tests showed the Samsung Omnia II being susceptible to signal loss via the “grip of death.” Samsung took their time in responding, perhaps because Apple uses a good number of memory chips from the company. So Samsung needed to be respectable and remain true to their manufacturing methods, but doing so without losing whiney customer.
