Jailbreak your A5 device with Absinthe →
Kings among men. Thank you.
Oh dear RIM. What even happened to you? →
Oliver Haslam writes at Redmond Pie: “I actually feel sorry for RIM. Only a little bit though. Suffering the fall from grace that RIM clearly has over the last two years cannot be easy for a company which once owned the business market, as well as the lucrative younger market across Europe. But look at the company now. Less than five years since the iPhone was introduced and RIM finds...
Apple's production suppliers and This American... →
I’ve just listened to last week’s This American Life. While the Foxconn suicides of 2010 made headlines I haven’t really thought about the it or any of the other factories where Apple has its devices assembled. This episode of the radio show is really interesting, while half of the entertainment is the way Mike Daisey tells the story (which is brilliant in my opinion) they offer...
Google Kenya controversy →
Nice one guys.
You know when you misspell "youtube.com"? →
Finally! maybe I won’t be sucked in by all those really convincing phishing scams any more. </sacrasm>. On a serious note, these websites are really annoying and I’m really glad that they’re going to Google now.
Get a free iPhone 4S from China Unicom →
iDownloadBlog: “To get the free iPhone 4S, customers must sign up for a monthly plan starting at 286 yuan, or $45.” I don’t know about the US, but in the UK the 16GB 4S is available for free at £41 ($63) per month on a 24 month contract. That’s with 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 750mb data. Sure, the data’s pretty poor but I guess the upfront cost (or lack...
Safari 5 and Firefox 9 come out on top for OS X... →
I would take benchmark results with a pinch of salt. I know for a fact that on my 2008 unibody MacBook (running Lion) Chrome is far superior in real world use. I should note that I’ve got FlashBlock enabled all the time when using Chrome which probably speeds it up (and definitely ensures it doesn’t crash often). Don’t even talk to me about the horrendous start up time of...
pod2g, planetbeing, MuscleNerd and p0sixninja... →
This looks promising. Like the article mentions, pod2g is really good at keeping the public up to date on progress. I used to be completely dependent on a jailbreak. When I had my 4 and 3GS before that, the phone being jailbroken was an absolute requirement. I even jailbroken all the betas of iOS 5. Since I’ve had the 4S, however, I’ve not felt the need to. I know that there...
The iPhone 3GS
In August of 2009, a mere month before I left for university I bought myself my first iPhone. The 3GS was released only a couple of months prior and it was an item I’d been lusting after since its announcement. I’d been interested in the iPhone 3G and the original iPhone before that but neither had really tempted me to the point of actually getting the phone. However, after feeling...
