    This morning, MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) mentioned on Twitter that the iPhone Dev-Team is looking to merge PwnageTool with redsn0w for enhanced functionality. The version of redsn0w that has this feature is not out yet but I presume it is on the way.



    The PwnageTool feature (preserving baseband) will be added in the "Extras" section of redsn0w when the time comes. This is good news for the jailbreak community because they will be able ...

    This review will go over numerous new features of iOS 5.

    edit: whoops, we jumped the gun a bit on the release. will be released shortly (usually at 1PM EST, 10AM PST). Our apologies on the early posting! The review still is solid, though.

    iCloud





    Perhaps one of the most underappreciated and misconstrued features of iOS 5 will be iCloud. iCloud is Apple’s response to being able to store media away from your device while still having admittance to it from your device. iCloud is fundamentally a server on Apple’s end that holds your information so that you can access it on the go from any of your devices, that includes PC’s and Macs.



    iCloud will permit you to store your Mail accounts, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Safari Bookmarks, Notes, Photos in Photo Stream, and iWork Documents. iCloud offers 5GB of storage for free, 15GB of storage for $20/year, 25GB of storage for $40/year, and 55GB of storage for $100/year. These prices are on par, if not somewhat cheap for a lot of its competition. But, aside from storing data, (because that’s boring), iCloud does a lot more.

    iCloud is also your iDevice restore center. If you plan on taking advantage of iOS 5’s PC-Free option (explained below) then iCloud will allow you to back up all of your iDevices on iCloud instead of using iTunes to make backups. This means that you can restore your devices from iCloud backups. These backups will eat into your data space.

    To begin, ...

    Apple’s iCloud recently just went live for everyone! All you need to do is to enter your current login details and you will be prompted to upgrade the MobileMe account to iCloud (if you had one).

    Reviewer: I love you

    Siri: I hope you don't say that to other mobile phones.


    Siri is closer to becoming self-aware than I feared. It is already exhibiting a sense of humor. What's next jealousy? Revenge? Judgement Day?

    Seriously though, the above review and the video at the bottom the page from Stuff.tv show an incredibly capable voice activated assistant. Siri handles multiple accents without a problem, ...

    Two days ModMyi reported that a ton of staple packages in Cydia, such as PreferenceLoader and Activator, were updated to support iOS 5. At the time, it was thought that these applications were simply updated to support iOS 5 in terms of functionality not necessarily features. Come to find out, thanks to iDownloadBlog's find, that the new Activator that as just released has new actions embedded inside ...

    I remember a time when, T-Mobile said they wanted nothing to do with iPhones.

    T-Mobile, the company that was expected to get this new generation iPhone and didn't, released a VoIP app for iOS. The app is called Bobsled and it allows you to make free VoIP calls to anyone on Facebook. This app is also available for Android phones, mind you.

    Bobsled was originally a Facebook app which appears to have ...
