Rumor: Official Google Voice app approved

With Apple revising their application approval guidelines, we have seen a few good apps – which have or would have been rejected in a heartbeat before – actually make their way to the App Store now. One of those applications was GV Mobile +, a Google Voice application that had been previously booted for duplicating features already offered by the…

Apple TV already jailbroken

Recently I have been on the fence about getting myself an Apple TV box. After Apple’s announcement I was left wanting more out of the “hockey puck”, thinking that Apple could have definitely done more with this product. I didn’t see much use for Apple TV seeing as I’m already a Netflix subscriber and don’t really have a need for other movie…

Windows Phone 7 set to save us from our phones

Have you ever felt that you may be a little too addicted to that small screen in your hands? Are you constantly perusing the news or even Twitter and Facebook? Well, Microsoft seems to think there might be an issue with that. We have, apparently, become enslaved to our little computer-like devices, and at any moment the world could fall apart because of…

Apple TV preorders finally shipping out

Looks like Apple is making good on its September launch promise for the new Apple TV, barely. People who had preordered when it first became available are finally receiving notice from Apple that the units are on their way and should arrive on Sept. 3oth. Since they obviously couldn’t keep their end of the bargain Apple has also kindly refunded the…

iOS 4.1 jailbreak for iPod Touch 4G shown off

For those of us waiting for an iOS 4.1 jailbreak to be released, there may be some light at the end of the tunnel. If you can’t live without having your iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G jailbroken, then I assume that you’re still stuck on iOS 4.0.1, since that’s the last jailbreakable version (for now). I can’t update my software yet either; I’ll lose the…

Jailbreak for iPhone 3G on iOS 4.1 available (for Mac users)

Well for those of us with a sleek iPhone 4, it seems we actually have something to be jealous about. An iOS 4.1 jailbreak for the the iPhone 3G  and iPod Touch 2G has finally been released, at least for users with a Mac. (Those on a PC have to wait just a tad longer.) The iPhone Dev Team has released Redsn0w 0.9.6 Beta for Mac which allows for the older…

Jailbreak Tues: Amp up those folders with FolderEnhancer

Folders are a pretty awesome thing. Apple definitely did a good job on finally implementing this in iOS after having seen others attempt the same on other mobile platforms. And I honestly believe they did a better job at it too. But there are still some things that it lacks, features that should have been a no-brainer. For jailbreakers who feel that the…

Rock Your Phone is no more

We all knew this day was coming, it was destined to end up this way. Rock Your Phone has finally closed up shop. Nearly 2 weeks ago it had been acquired by SaurikIT – the company that created Cydia – meaning any and all apps/features would henceforth be included into Cydia. Well, I guess all that comes to mind is the good old Highlander quote “There…

Newton OS ported to the iPhone

Remember the Newton PDA? neither do I, but of course it was just coming to the market before I even knew what that big box on our living room desk was for. But the Newton was Apple’s first and only attempt at a tablet computing device before the iPad came along. It was widely seen as way before its time and was a worldwide flop as well. But…

iPhone 4 coming to China

Apple announced on Sunday that the iPhone 4 will be headed to China on September 25th. It will become available for CNY4,999 (16 GB) and CNY5,999 (32 GB), that’s $745 and $894 respectively. Chinese customers will also be able to purchase the device from China Unicom on a 2-year contract, with subsidized price. Apple will also be opening two brand new…
