    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 ...

    We've all heard of voice recognition, finger print sensors, and even retina scans, but the latest security feature that could become the next big thing is a wee but creepier - and maybe also a bit cooler - than other user-detection methods. According to a patent application from you know who, the folks in Cupertino may be tinkering with the prospect of an embedded iPhone security feature that would essentially "lock out" anyone's ...

    The former US Secretary of Labor has a message for the Federal Trade Commission, which is reportedly considering a lawsuit against Apple: investigate big banks instead. Robert Reich says that it is an"absurd double standard" that the US regulatory agency can prevent companies from engaging in unfair competition… so long as they're not in the financial industry.

    According to a new survey of US smartphone users, three times more AT&T customers than Verizon customers said they had experienced calls being dropped. The results suggest that despite massive investment in its infrastructure, AT&T still has significant problems to overcome. However, one financial analyst believes that AT&T will retain its exclusive iPhone deal in the US at least through this ...

    Apple fanboys and fangirls may take offense to being called "geeks," but a new dating website is about to be launched that will help said "Apple geeks" find more than just one another. Perhaps they will also find love. Stupid? Yes. But "Cupidtino" is the buzz of the blogosophere today, despite sounding like the premise of a bad Saturday Night Live skit.

    In a nutshell, Cupidtino is a social network ...

    Chalk this one up as either an incredibly innovative and cool or unbelievably stupid and immature thing to do with your iPad. Indeed, if there was ever a good application for the obligatory "don't try this at home" warning, it would probably be here. It seems the guys over at Fuel TV have created the world's first iPad skateboard. And based on the video and photographic evidence, it seems those who've ...
