    The developers at FireCore have released Seas0nPass, a tethered jailbreak for the second-generation Apple TV running 4.1.1 (iOS 4.2.1). Like PwnageTool or Sn0wBreeze, Seas0nPass creates a custom IPSW that gets loaded on your device. The tool is extremely simple and easy to use, automating all the steps except actually entering DFU mode (like most JB tools, it will guide you through that as well). It will even download the stock IPSW from the internet for you.

    Seas0nPass is free and open source: you can download the source ...

    With all eyes fixed on the release of the Verizon iPhone today, speculation is growing as to whether or not the included Wi-Fi hotspot feature will be coming to other carriers as well. The iOS has been capable tethering for some time now, but it has been limited in the US at least, by AT&T and its overly stressed network.

    Verizon will soon be selling a CDMA-compatible version of the iPad, the company's chief financial officer told Bloomberg.

Verizon Communications CFO Francis Shammo did not give a date for the CDMA iPad, and it was not clear that this was a planned ...

    According to J.P. Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz, Verizon customers excited about the prospective arrival of a certain Apple smartphone on the nation's largest mobile network might find themselves at a slight cost disadvantage over their peers on AT&T. Moskowitz predicts that Verizon may charge between $20 and $30 more than AT&T for the subsidized Apple iPhone price. Why? You can thank the ...

As a sign of confidence in the reliability of its network - and to provide a point of comparison with AT&T - the carrier is expected to provide the same uncapped data plans for the iPhone it currently offers users of other smartphones. Meanwhile, AT&T wasted no time ...
