    Jay Freeman (saurik) has been a busy man lately. for the past two years. for a while now. His latest project to come our way was just released less than an hour ago - a way to finally downgrade your iPhone 3G[S] from 3.1 (with a few "well, if"s in there) to something currently jailbreakable (like 3.0.1).

    saurik's got some crap to toss on Apple's wall, too, with this one. The guide article features not only an informative look into ...

    We've been checking out Waze a few days now, and while it's still in infancy stages - its a promising and interesting tech. In a nutshell, "Waze is the first free turn by turn GPS app that uses crowd sourcing to detect real time traffic conditions. Users can also communicate information about whats happening on the road (police, accidents, construction, cheap gas etc) straight from their phones."

    In case you didn't already notice, Apple made a few changes seemingly overnight.

    And I mean overnight ... literally.

    Our friends at MacRumors just rolled out with the news.

    Although many were hoping for Apple to unveil newer and bigger plans for Apple TV at last week's media event, it seems the company is moving further from this possibility with each passing day. ...

    Adam Richardson of CNET sounds like a lot of my closest friends these days.

    Unfortunately, Richardson and this growing band of iPhone malcontents are bouncing back to the BlackBerry after flirting once more with Apple's iPhone. And the more I look around, the more I hear people entertaining the possibility of the switch. But why?

    The BlackBerry, of course, has a burgeoning reputation as the serious ...

    Just submitted to Apple as a bug, rpetrich (developer of the ActionMenu packages in Cydia) discovered an interesting security bug in the iPhone firmware.

    If a password is inputted in a field, shake to undo, and you will be able to see the character you are deleting. Simply repeat this for every character, and you have the password.

    Obviously this isn't an issue that would be useful for those with a criminal ...

    Images of an iPod Touch leaked to the blog of XM talk show hosts Covino and Rich and MacRumors last month showed a camera near the top of the device, in exactly the location of the 6x6x3mm cavity on the released Touch.

    A comparison of the leaked images of the device's internals with the iFixit teardown, meanwhile, shows that the leak was genuine. So it seems clear that Apple ...

    eWeek is out this morning with a report indicating that Apple will likely continue their exclusive relationship with AT&T.

    Although this news isn't exactly what many iPhone fans want to hear, our attention was certainly roused by the prospect of Apple doing business with Verizon elsewhere. What does that mean, exactly? For now, the only feasible guess is that Apple would partner with Verizon on another ...

    This morning, NBC News picked up on what, at first, was a small news story earlier in the weekend.

    In their coverage of Steve Jobs and his return to the stage for Apple last week, the Wall Street Journal placed a Halloween ad for Grandin Road, a maker of furniture, next to an article about Jobs.

    That's the question on everyone's mind. Did someone at the Wall Street ...

    Apple added an anti-phishing feature to Safari in the 3.1 release. Called Fraud Warning (it's in Settings->Safari->Security), the modification was released with little fanfare (or explanation), and it appears that there may be confusion about how it works.

    Computerworld reported on two anti-malware researchers who had taken a look at users who had implemented the feature and found it gave inconsistent ...

    Users on Apple support forums are still complaining about loss of GPS functionality after upgrading to the 3.0 firmware release.

    As TUAW notes, some users are getting their iPhones replaced, even though Apple is not acknowledging that a bug exists. Some people have had success after rebooting their phone, or disabling 3G. And there have been reports that the problem went away after upgrading ...

    The full list of discoveries was chronicled earlier in our forums.
