    In the latest round of an increasingly comic legal war, Nokia has yet again sued Apple for allegedly infringing on its patents, this time objecting to technology used in the iPad. The Finnish smartphone giant has already sued Apple twice, and also complained to US federal regulators. Apple, for its part, sued Nokia back and filed its own complaint, but is currently under investigation to determine ...

    UPDATE: Winterboard was updated again yesterday with an included "White Icon Labels" package, so this post is mostly unnecessary now. Original post follows for archive:

    To everyone with the problem that gives you light gray icon labels after updating Winterboard, three solutions for you:

    For those of you who have recently purchased an iPad and used the new Spirit jailbreak, you might be wondering which apps are safe to install, which apps actually work, and how you can stay up to date on when these apps will get updated to support iPad Compatibility.

    What is always overwhelming is the support from the community, which really makes jailbroken iDevices ...

    Apple's position on Flash is clear: there's no desire or room for it on Apple's most popular iDevices (at least from Cupertino's perspective). Consequently, if Apple is charting a course to new horizons that doesn't include Flash on the journey, others who want to make the trek with Apple similarly have their work cut out for them - namely, to also cut out the need for Flash wherever appropriate and ...

    Earlier today, saurik released an update for winterboard with limited support for the iPad. It appears that the new build has access to the other.artwork file of the iPad, thus allowing many of the app and system UIs to be themed. So far it seems to work with icons, system UIs, sliders, wallpapers, and many of the stock features of winterboard. ...

    Alright guys, here's a dose of new apps and updates this week for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. With the Spirit jailbreak being released over the weekend, there are lots of updates to cover for this week. As time progresses, we should see more Cydia/Rock apps being updated to work with the iPad. There seems to be a lot of updates today as well, so I'll update this list if anything pops in.

    One of my favorite updates in all of this is the fact that Winterboard is now somewhat supported on the iPad. It has "Summerboard Support" which means you get your basics, like Icons and wallpapers, although not all of them will show up right. A lot of the themes will need some tweaking before they are 100% again.

    For a list of compatible JB iPad Apps check out this list. ...

    With the number of vulnerabilities dwindling in the iPhone OS, there is never been a better time to get the community more involved in developing jailbreaks. When most people in the community decide they would like to help out and try to investigate how to go about it, they typically find little or no help in doing so. Even the official documentation ...

    David Wong, the "hobbyist hacker" much more widely recognized as "planetbeing," has posted a blog proclaiming Andoid's arrival on the iPhone 3G. Despite the admission that the port is "slightly more rough" than its predecessor (Android on first-generation iPhone port), Wong says this accomplishment is significant for no shortage of reasons, not the least of which is that it represents an "important milestone for ...

    US users will soon be able to use their iPhones to pay for things in real-world stores with the help of a new program from credit card giant Visa. The payWave system is already in use with contactless "chip" cards at thousands of locations in North America, which use Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to exchange payment information securely. Visa's program will require the use of ...

    It was the moment many anticipated and others feared in anticipation. Apple has officially approved and welcomed into its App Store the first "gambling" application. Dubbed "Betfair," the downloadable game is the first ever betting application that may truly usher in a new gambling era for iPhone users.

    Several months ago on MMI, yours truly covered how some Apple fans had begun expressing concern about a change ...

    After the weird now-you-see-it, now-you-don't release of the latest iPhone OS beta yesterday, devs started poring through the SDK in search of clues about new iPhone features. Some video-capture settings give hints that the fourth-generation iPhone will be capable of taking HD video at 720p, adding weight to the belief of many that the next model will be called the "iPhone HD." Also, a new dialog in iTunes ...
