Thanks to a federal copyright law ruling on Monday by the Library of Congress, jailbreaking your iPhone doesn’t have to be kept to the underground forums like it's alcohol during a digital prohibition. The process is now completely legal under US law. Grab a glass of e-freedom![ATTACH]16137[/ATTACH]The resulting decision was part of a tri-yearly board review by the Library which discusses exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The legalization of jailbreaking comprised two of the six provisions agreed upon today by the Library. See “[URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story299581.html"][I]DMCA Changes: Copyright Rules Made More Flexible[/URL]”[/I]. The filing was brought forth by the …

I love the fact that iCloud contacts saves changes to my contact list immediately to my iphone. It's a great way copy/paste directions and other info from the computer to iphone and it's instantaneous! However, recently I got a message saying that the update was not synced to the iphone due to a server error. Is there a way to force a syncronization of all 'unsynced' but updated contacts both ways? I looked around on iPhone, and on iCloud but could not see an option to force sync. Also plugged in the iPhone to see if that does the trick, …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]16788[/ATTACH]If you’re a petty thief, an iPhone must look like a mobile Mona Lisa. Their sleek design, variety of features, portability, coveted ownership, and lofty price make for an appealing and readily available target. But scum of the earth pay heed: Apple filed for a patent yesterday (August 19th) to undermine iPhone theft by remote disabling of the stolen devices and sending you to the clink for your tomfoolery. The patent, titled "Systems and Methods for Identifying Unauthorized Users of an Electronic Device”, provides lost or stolen iPhone owners with peace of mind and employs a variety of methods to …

Porn—it’s a multi-billion dollar industry fueled by mankind’s innate notions of lust and desire. iPhone 4—a smartphone device with millions of users worldwide connected through FaceTime videoconferencing. Porn+iPhone 4=iPorn, the shameless new venture of the adult-entertainment industry as it improves upon its limitless digital expanses. [ATTACH]16323[/ATTACH]In truth, it was only a matter of time before porn companies began utilizing FaceTime for the lucrative, virgin market behind this new wave technology, albeit for anything but showing the face. This will be the first time video sex chat services have allowed customers the opportunity to watch and be watched concurrently. "We've been …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]16385[/ATTACH]Once an iPhone firmware is jailbroken, it is only a matter of time before the hackers that be are able to unlock the phone as well. Late last night, a group of iPhone hackers, the Dev-Team, released an update for their app, ultrasn0w. This allows people to remove the carrier restrictions and use the iPhone on any other supported carrier. It is only compatible with iPhone 4 baseband 01.59 and 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04.

The same hacker behind the iPad jailbreaking software “Spirit”, and the iPad port of Flash, has released an easy to use jailbreak solution for the iPhone4. Comex and his cohorts have created a website that allows users to complete the job with a single swipe of the finger. [ATTACH=RIGHT]16317[/ATTACH]Users of any iPhone model running firmwares 3.1.2 - 4.0.1 and iPads up to ver. 3.2.1 , can go to [url]www.jailbreakme.com[/url], and legally open their phones up to the third-party app stores that lie in wait. When the jailbreak was initially released, there were problems with FaceTime, MMS, and iPad iOS 3.2.1, …

The iPhone Case Program was announced earlier this morning, just a week after Apple CEO Steve Jobs addressed the reception issues spreading through the news like wildfire. In his shrugging off of the recent headlines, Jobs explained that only 1.7% of iPhone 4s have been returned and that just 0.55% of owners have called to complain. Regardless of the numbers, free bumper cases were the solution given by Jobs, which allows the external antenna band room to breathe in between the purchaser’s kung-fu grip. It’s now time for you to cash in. Users in dire reception straights looking to gain …

Apple released on Tuesday that even amidst iPhone 4 woes and bruises left by “Antennagate”, there weren't any worms in their financial statements, posting second-quarter net income profits up 78% to $3.25 billion. Figures from April-to-June soared up 61% year-over-year to $15.7 billion, producing Apple’s highest quarterly profit ever recorded. Their sensational figures are attributed to booming sales of the recently released iPad, which sold roughly 3.3 million units, leaving empty shelves nationwide in its wake. Fears by investors that the iPad would attract customers away from Macintosh computers were all in vain: Mac sales jumped up 33% to 3.5 …

Microsoft and Apple haven't had a great time of it recently with mobile consumers. For Microsoft, the market roundly rejected the Kin, which just about anyone who follows the cell phone market knew would happen. Meanwhile, Apple is taking it on the chin about how they are handling the iPhone 4 antenna debacle and there is clearly growing discontent among consumers. The big difference here, however is the sales picture. Apple, for whatever reason, continues to live off its reputation and sell iPhones hand over fist, while Microsoft's mobile strategy continues to flounder.

Apple had a great week last week when it launched the iPhone 4 to much fanfare. [URL="http://articles.latimes.com/2010/jun/29/business/la-fi-iphone-sales-20100629"]1.7 million units[/URL] reportedly flew out the door in the first three days alone setting sales records. People [URL="http://www.pcworld.com/article/199761/hundreds_wait_in_line_as_iphone_4_goes_on_sale.html"]waited in long lines[/URL]; reportedly longer lines than for the iPad debut or the iPhone 3G last year, but the glow was only momentary. The initial good sales news was quickly followed by [URL="http://www.informationweek.com/news/hardware/handheld/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=225701876"]reports of supply issues[/URL], then came the [URL="http://www.pcworld.com/article/200206/apple_cant_wish_away_iphone_4_antenna_woes.html"]antenna news[/URL]--that you could get lousy reception if you didn't hold it correctly.

Last week was a tough week for Apple followers as we were bombarded with a slew of stories that sounded dire, but upon further examination maybe weren’t so bad (or maybe they were). Confused yet? You’re not alone. Let’s look at three stories from last week that illustrate this issue. [B]The iPhone 4 Antenna Issue[/B] I wrote about this issue on Friday in [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story294002.html"]Apple iPhone 4 Explanation Letter Borders on Surreal[/URL]. We had people saying [URL="http://www.pcworld.com/article/200206/apple_cant_wish_away_iphone_4_antenna_woes.html"]there was a real issue[/URL]. We had [URL="http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2010/07/02appleletter.html"]Apple’s convoluted letter of explanation[/URL] that it was an issue, but not really.

Apple released [URL="http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2010/07/02appleletter.html"]a letter[/URL] this morning explaining its infamous iPhone 4 reception issues. I encourage you to read it and then come back. The letter is so bizarre to me I thought at first it was joke or a hoax like Steve Jobs' [URL="http://venturebeat.com/2010/07/01/steve-jobs-calm-down-email-is-a-hoax-says-apple/"]"Relax, It's a Only a Phone email[/URL]." I clicked the Home page to make sure, I was actually on the Apple web site. As far as I can tell, this is really their explanation. In the words of [URL="http://www.hulu.com/watch/13828/saturday-night-live-really-with-seth-and-amy"]Seth and Amy on SNL news[/URL]: Really Apple?!
