Reading through my RSS feeds today, I stumbled upon an interesting post over at Neowin entitled ‘Vista’s Security Rendered Completely Useless by New Exploit‘ which reports on a new technique that can ‘bypass all memory protection safeguards that Microsoft built into Windows Vista.‘ Continue Reading…
While the Dev Team has released Pwnage tool for Mac OSX, it’ll be some time before we see Pwnage tool for Windows. All those Windows users who can’t wait to jailbreak/unlock their iPhones here’s a guide for you to jailbreak/unlock your iPhone.
While at the moment there is no Installer.app on firmware 2.0, and there aren’t many apps running but that will change with time, and more and more apps for the jailbroken iPhone will appear. Follow this quick 15 min guide to Jailbreak/unlock your iPhone on Windows..
I’m going to divide the guide into two clear and concise sections, one for the iPhone 2G and one for the iPhone 3G.. Pick the section that you have and proceed.. Make sure you have iTunes 7.7 installed and backup your iPhone before continuing..
Disclaimer : I’m not responsible if these hacks end up bricking your iPhone, while the methods have been tested widely but please proceed at your own risk.
For iPhone 2G
iPhone 2G can both be unlocked and jailbroken unlike the iPhone 3G which can only be jaibroken at the moment.. Download the following files before you get started..
Lets get started then..
Yay! Finally the Pwnage Tool for iPhone 2.0 has been released.. The Dev Team has released a working jailbreak for iPhone 3G and a working unlock/jailbreak for iPhone 2G..
The most important thing is that firmware 2.0 was just released on 11th July, which meant Dev Team had an jailbroken firmware 2.0 on the iPhone 3G in just a space of 8 days.. Neat achievement I must say..
If you have an older generation of iPhone and you can’t wait to try out the apps from the app store on your unlocked iPhone, download Pwnage tool 2.0 immediately.. At the moment it is Mac only, but a windows version is on its way as I speak.
If you are casual jailbreaker, or if you simply want to unlock your iPhone, you might probably want to hold out for another week or so, so that the dev team can iron out the bugs and Pwnage becomes even more stable. Considering the kind of pressure the dev team has been through the Pwnage tool is a wonderful achievement on their part. It will only get better with time. At the moment though its still not ready for the average guy, atleast not as easy as using ZiPhone.
Today Last.fm decided to take wraps off its new design they’ve been working on since May. I was not a part of the beta but still at first glance the new design looks little different from the one we saw during the beta period. Looking through the Last.fm forums I found that the beta design was much criticized and the design that we see now is after tons of user feedback.
I was a Last.fm user for quite some time before I stopped using it for unknown reasons. In the past Last.fm always had a confusing navigational structure that for some reason never got you to what you wanted. Looks like Last.fm team has worked hard to resolve the navigational issues that plagued the old design and the new design is marked improvement over the older one.
Take a look at the screenshots yourself and you will see why the new design is much cleaner and more functional than the old design..
The New Design
RSS Feeds seem to be everywhere these days. With growing popularity and the sheer number of websites offering RSS Feeds, the search for good RSS Feed readers gains significance.
Before you tell more about Headline, I’d like to ask you which feed reader you use and what are the things that you like/dislike about it the most? I for one use Google reader as my primary feed reader and I am happy with it.
Ever since RSS has started to make attention into the mainstream the need for more functional RSS feed readers with a much more intuitive UI has arised and Headline aims to exactly fill that void.
Simply put Headline is a revolution in feed reading. It combines a sleek, clean interface with a powerful user experience.
