    screencap of friends-only video on YouTube

    Roger Åberg, a Swedish blogger and the CEO of MacFeber.se, got a hold of the new TomTom Car Kit, and took a brief video of himself unwrapping and examining it before making it a friends-only video on YouTube (thanks to user blacksti for the heads-up on that).

    Apple's recent purchase of PlaceBase, a company that produces a maps API called Pushpin, has illustrated to many Apple's intention of competing with Google, which, for now, largely dominates the digital mapping landscape.

    As the days pass amidst our heightened awareness of Apple's potential aims, more evidence surfaces as to why Apple may have more reason than ever to "map" out a new, more competitive ...

    A lawsuit between Eminem's music publisher and Apple has been resolved... although there are no guarantees that Eminem won't continue the grudge in an upcoming song.

    For now, the issue has been settled after five days of trial in federal court. Apple and Eminem's publisher, Eight Mile Style, finally reached an agreement Thursday night that neither side wants to talk about, according to the Detroit ...

    This will walk you through jailbreaking your iPhone / iPhone 3G / iPhone 3G[S] with an end result of a jailbroken 3.1 device. This will only work on a Mac.

    If you have a 3G[S], you will need to have ALREADY jailbroken the device at a previous 3.xfirmware (3.0 or 3.0.1) in order for this to work. If you have a 3G[S] which came at or has already been upgraded to 3.1 through Apple, this release of PwnageTool (3.1.3) WILL NOT WORK.

    Alright, download PwnageTool 3.1.3 from here:

    You will also need the 3.1 firmware file for your device. We recommend you download the firmware file with FireFox, as Safari tends to mess with the extension with default values. If you have not already clicked the "download but don't install" option for 3.1 in iTunes, you can download the 3.1 firmware ...

    PwnageTool 3.1.3 is out now - and jailbreaks the 3G[S] (with a caveat) as well as all other iPhone models, and the iPod Touch 1G and 2G.

    The iPod Touch 3G is NOT supported, and the iPhone 3G and 3G[S] are only supported if they were jailbroken by PwnageTool at 3.0 or 3.0.1.

    EDIT: To clarify, whether you jailbroke with redsn0w or PwnageTool, you're still Pwn'd.

    Contestant: "I'll take 'Electronic Readers' for $1000, Alex"

    Trebek: This is what you get when you cross a book with video content.

    Contestant: What is a Vook?

    Trebek: Correct!

    If someone had asked me the other day what a vook was, I would have said it sounded like something that belongs in a difficult category on Jeopardy. But it turns out that there's nothing overly complex or arcane ...

    The online Apple Store for Resellers has increased wait times for two Mac mini models, and many resellers' stock of the low-end mini is completely depleted. Meanwhile, Apple has informed its direct sales channel that the low end model has been discontinued. This is consistent with increasing rumors of upgrades to the product line in coming weeks.
