Presidencies and iPads

I just finished reading this article  on Mashable and some interesting ideas came to mind.

“While the Internet is no longer a “Wild West,” people in power are still trying to figure out how best to approach online communities and their social tools. There may not be any clear answers, but social is certainly not going to go away.

There are nearly infinite ways that governments are using social media. Help us add to the conversation by sharing your own insights in the comments below. How have you seen governments, large and small, use social media? What could be done better?”

Grooveshark - Free Spotify alternative

Posted by msbodetti in spotify , music , iTunes , iPhone , ipad , grooveshark

msbodetti

I don't know if you came across Grooveshark, but it's the best thing next to Spotify and it's totally FREE on your computer.

What I love about Spotify is that I don't need Gig's of space to listen to music that I don't have stored on my Mac or iPhone or iPad or any other device that supports it. But there is iTunes Match which is a great alternative but your limited to space…

How do I get Grooveshark?

This is the best part, you don't need to download any Apps whatsoever.

1. Open up your browser on your device and type in www.grooveshark.com

2. Start searching for music and play it within seconds.

iPhone 4 Jailbreak 4.3.3 - Any Baseband, Any iDevice (iPad 2)

Posted by msbodetti in jailbreak , iTunes , iPod Touch , iPhone , ipad , comex , 4.3.3

msbodetti

I have been waiting for this Jailbreak for a really long time, reason? Well because I mistakenly updated my baseband from my last update to 4.2.1, my current baseband is  not unlockable via ultrasn0w.
Finally comex released the revamped Jailbreakme.com version 3. Which supports all iDevices including the iPad 2 which has stirred up the public. As a lot of Jailbreakers were trying to accomplish the iPad 2 Jailbreak after comex's last jailbreak for iPad 2 got patched by Apple.

How to get your iDevice ready for Jailbreakme.com?


Firstly do a backup of your iDevice with your Contacts, email setting, music etc.
Then you need your iDevice to be updated to 4.3.3 via iTunes.

I had to do a Restore and Update because my iPhone was Jailbroken 4.2.1 via greenpoison. So if your iDevice is already Jailbroken, Restore and Update is highly recommended.

I noticed that my baseband updated yet again but this wont be a problem for Jailbreakme 3.0

Ant that's it, it's ready :)

How to Jailbreak with Jailbreakme.com?


1. On your iDevice, open up Safari and type in www.jailbreakme.com

2. Press the Install button next to Cydia. It should just Install the Cydia App or Jailbreak and Install the Cydia App.

This Jailbreak is 100% Free and working!
What happened to Greenpoison's rc6.2?

Well the Chronic dev team have been updating the public on release dates for the rc 6.2 but nothing has been released since May when they announced that they will be releasing it. A lot of rumors have it, it's because Geohot is no longer helping them because of his position at Facebook.
But this is the alternate method to use from Greenpoison as it basically uses the same strategy of Jailbreaking the firmware installed and not having conflict with basebands etc.
Read more about the comex Jailbreakme.com here by the dev team.

Big thanks to Comex for his wonderful work and please make donations to him if you have used his Jailbreaking method with success!

Saving the world... One gadget at a time

“In the real world, we do have hydrocarbons and other finite resources, and most of our current welfare, technology, and population size depends on that fact. Slowly running out of these resources will be painful enough. Running out abruptly and being ill-prepared would be disastrous.” Let that thought sink in for a while... Perhaps that’s a bit harder without fully understanding what this statement could mean.

Yes news came about on Tuesday morning that researchers have found out that Apple has continuously been taking information from your Apple devices after the iOS 4 update which came out last year June.

There is no warning asking for permission to do so from Apple. But their Terms and Conditions state that they will do it regardless:

Apple taking Samsung to court Over similarity's in Products

Posted by msbodetti in Samsung , iPod , iPhone , ipad , Galaxy Tab , Apple

msbodetti



For the last few months, Apple has been in and out of court for the trademarking of the App Store and Microsoft stopping them.  Another big headline that hit Friday morning is that Apple finds that the design and features of Samsungs new mobile phones and tablets too similar to their own.

"Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products," that is a summary of Apple's lawsuit against Samsung.

Along with the above statement, there is a list of comparisons between Apple's iDevices and Samsung's mobile phones and now their tablets. Apple says that the exterior design as well as the icon's in Samsung's devices are too similar to their own this includes the music, texting, phone and contacts.

Besides this, Samsung is Apple's supplier for different chips for their iDevices and Macbooks. So I think this will come to a halt.

I have to agree with them though. The Samsung Galaxy S is really nice and even close to the iPhone 4's design. The touch screen is top notch! And yea some of the icons are similar... But it's competition so I dont know if the court will rule in favour of Apple but this slows down the competitors of Apple so this will favour Apple in some way!
