Unlock for iPhone 3GS, 3G on iOS 4.2 & iOS 4.1 to Drop After 2 Days At Most Once iOS 4.2 is Public

In a reply to one of his many followers on Twitter, MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team has confirmed that ultrasn0w unlock for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G on iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2, with 05.14.02 baseband will be released in a day or two at most, once iOS 4.2 is released to public.

iOS 4.2 Unlock

simplysaru: @MuscleNerd thanks.. how long would the wait be for 4.2 any approximate time
MuscleNerd: @simplysaru if you’re on 3G or 3GS, just a day or 2 at most after 4.2 is public (just enough time to verify stuff)

Since the baseband OS on iPhone 4 is different than its predecessors, it will probably take a little more time for the devs to figure out unlock for iPhone 4 on 2.10.04 baseband, on iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2.
Apple is expected to release iOS 4.2 sometime in November this year.
Stay tuned ! We will let you know as soon as iOS 4.2 is available to public, followed by the Ultrasn0w unlock for iPhone 3GS and 3G, running iOS 4.2 / 4.1.

White iPhones show up for reservation in updated Apple app

Looks like you won’t have to wait too much longer if you’ve been hoping/praying/wishing for a nice white iPhone 4 — as these have begun showing up as available to reserve if you’re using Apple’s freshly-updated Apple Store iPhone app….reserve your white iPhone today.

Want to see how sexy is the white iPhone 4? Click Here.

Wow. Just Wow. WSJ readers are idiots.

Here’s a poll going on at the Wall St. Journal right now of reader opinions on who makes the best mobile OS.  Who is winning?

That’s right.  Microsoft who just released its Windows phone 7 without multi-tasking and about 30 apps.  Their old OS is by their own admission a dead end steaming pile.  Maybe they like the Kin?  Can anyone explain this?

Apple Begins Killing the Hard Drive

Click the image to open in full size.

Apple calls the new MacBook Air "the next generation of MacBooks," in an indication that they are planning on incorporating the innovative features of the refreshed model in all Apple laptops. Chief among these is the solid-state drive (SSD) flash storage that replaces the hard drive, cutting weight and extending battery life. Apple has telegraphed in a number of ways that the 'instant-on' capability of the MacBook Air and iPad will become standard on MacBooks - if not on all Macs - in the future.

"All notebooks will be like this someday," Jobs said on the stage yesterday, calling the MacBook Air "the future of the MacBook." In the press release accompanying the Air launch, Apple strongly asserted that "the first of a next generation of notebooks which will replace mechanical hard disks and optical drives with Internet services and solid state flash storage." So it's clear that they intend to standardize on flash storage as opposed to mechanical hard disks. Apple is already the largest buyer of NAND flash memory in the world, snapping up so many of the silicon wafers that it's single handedly caused worldwide shortages time and time again. However, their purchasing power has also enabled them to get flash at a good price, and further driving the price down by forcing manufacturers to increase production.

So is this a good development for the future of the MacBook, as well as the notebook industry in general? For one thing, the lack of moving parts eliminates the number one killer of hard drives: head crashes. Also, start-up time and access time is faster in solid state memory than in mechanical hard drives, again because of no moving parts. Heat buildup is limited and power usage is much lower. On the downside, the high price makes storage larger than the 256GB in the 13-inch Air impractical, though as production ramps up we should see prices come down. One major drawback is that there are a limited number of write cycles with flash memory; mechanical hard drives can be rewritten as many as ten times more than flash chips.

Technical and price shortcomings will doubtlessly diminish over time, and for a user who needs a light, medium-duty laptop - and has money to spare - the current crop of MacBook Airs are a fine choice. For those who are looking for a more affordable, durable option and are not rabid early adopters, waiting a year or so might be appropriate.

iPhone passes BlackBerry in worldwide market share

It's not an earthshaking event, but the occasion should be marked. According to StrategyAnalytics, the iPhone has passed RIM (BlackBerry) as global smartphone shipments reached 77 million units in the 3rd quarter of 2010.

According to the report, the iPhone sold 14.1 million phones, while RIM moved 12.1 million. For RIM, the news gets worse, as the company dropped 16.1 percent in sales from the previous quarter. Nokia is still way out in front with 26.5 million sales, but it also dropped more than 3 percent while the iPhone was up 18.3 percent.

Recently, RIM CEO Jim Balsillie got into a nasty back and forth with Steve Jobs, after Jobs heaped scorn on the upcoming 7" BlackBerry tablet product as 'dead on arrival.' Balsiille responded that people are 'getting tired of being told what to think by Apple.'

Rovio Mobile Ltd Angry Birds Halloween v1.0.0 iPhone iPod Touch Proper-Lz0PDA

iOSPDA released Halloween version of ”Angry Birds” for iPhone, iPOd touch & iPad made by Rovio Mobile. This is a ghastly special edition of terrifying fun!

In Angry Birds, players take control of a flock of birds that are attempting to retrieve eggs that have been stolen by a group of evil pigs. The pigs have taken refuge on or within structures made of various materials, including wood, glass and stone, and the object of the game is to eliminate all the pigs in the level. Using a slingshot, players launch the birds at the structure, with the intent of either hitting the pigs directly or damaging the structure, which would cause it to collapse onto the pigs. If all of the pigs are defeated by the time the last bird is used, the level is completed and the next level is unlocked. Players may re-attempt levels as many times as they wish, and may also replay completed levels in an attempt to boost their score. There are many different types of birds used in the game. At the beginning of the game the red bird is the only one available. As the player advances through the game, additional birds appear, some of which have special abilities that are activated by tapping the touchscreen while the bird is in flight.

Lima Sky Doodle Jump v1.24 iPhone iPod Touch-Lz0PDA

Lz0PDA released latest version of very fun & addictive game for iPhone & iPod touch entitled ”Doodle Jump”. Just in time for Halloween, this EPIC NEW doodle jump update is the SCARIEST EVER!

In Doodle Jump, the aim is to guide a four-legged creature called “The Doodle” up an unending series of platforms without falling. For devices with accelerometer, players tilt the device from side to side to move the Doodler in the desired direction. Players can get a short boost from various objects, such as propeller hats, jetpacks, rockets, springs or trampolines. There are also monsters and UFO’s that the Doodler has to shoot or jump on to eliminate. There is no definitive end to the game, but the end for each gameplay happens when you fall (by reaching the bottom of the screen), jump into a monster, get sucked into a black hole, or abducted by a UFO. The newest updated version of the game lets players choose between versions of the game (normal, Halloween, Christmas, Rainforest, Space, World Cup or Underwater) without changing their names. Also recently added with the latest update was the Easter version, which can be played by entering the name “bunny” for your name. Alternatively, you may put the names of one of the Pocket God pygmies for your name, as the Doodler will become one.

iPad 2 to come in White, looks like oversized iPhone 4?

How you wish the above is true.
Well, judging by the trouble some folks go to in creating the above mock-up concept design of the next generation iPad, that might well turn out to be the actual design once Apple unveils it early next year.
Design-wise it resembles an enlarged iPhone 4 with the same metal band around the edges and the same glass exterior. Additions include a front-facing 3-megapixel camera for FaceTime and an SD card slot for removable storage.
There’s also a mini HDMI output suggesting that you could hook up your iPad 2 to an HD Ready TV – FaceTime on a 32-inch plasma anyone?
