iOS 4.3.4/4.2.9 also kills untethered exploit dead

While the hoopla surrounding the recently released iOS 4.3.4 (and iOS 4.2.9) focused on it killing the PDF exploit that allowed JailbreakMe.com to function -- and could potentially allow bad guys to attack the iPhone and iPad as well -- it looks like Apple also patched an exploit that had been used to achieve untethered Jailbreakers since iOS 4.1. According to @i0n1c:

Griffin announce the Helo TC iOS app controlled helicopter

Griffin is set to unleash a remote controlled helicopter called the Helo TC. The Helo TC will be controlled by an app which will be available for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. We have seen one of these before but where this helicopter differs to the already available Parrot AR Drone is in the price. The Helo TC will be available later this year for just £34.99 which is approximately $56.

To be fair, it is a totally different bit of technology compared to the Parrot AR Drone. The Helo TC is only suitable for indoor use, has a maximum flying time of just 8 minutes and has no on-board video capturing devices.

Cube Dog now talks back!

Podotree has updated their iPhone app, Cube Dog, and your virtual pet now talks back.

Cube Dogs are adorable, 3D, interactive pets that you can customize to your hearts content! When you talk they repeat what you say! Tap them, and they do all kinds of cool stuff... like play baseball, and even fend of ninja attacks! Take a snap shot, and share with your friends!

  • Talk Back - Your fully-customized and fully-awesome Cube Dog has a voice. Speak to it to hear him repeat what you say in a unique voice of your own.
  • Real-World Photos - By opening the iPhone’s rear-facing camera, Cube Dog can play and take photos alongside your real dog, at the beach, on your desk, or anywhere you choose.
  • Tap to Play - Cube Dogs respond when you poke them. Tap his hands, feet, head, and eyes to watch him wave, jump, dance, knock his head back or make crazy faces.
  • Animation Gallery - Cube Dog: ‘Talk Back’ introduces an animation gallery to choose your favorite complex interactions; from playing fetch to calling your cell phone to fending off ninja attacks or turning into a hilarious monster.
  • 130 Million Possible Customizations - With 90 nose/mouth, eyes, ears, body, and head options, Cube Dogs are easily the most customizable toy on iOS.

I am a kid at heart and think this app is absolutely adorable. I particularly like the ability to take pictures of Cube Dog in the real world.

Cube Dog is availalbe for free for iPhone with optional in-app purchases. Screenshots after the break.

Will international app developers leave the US App Store over patent fears?

As expected Lodsys was but the first highly publicized patent troll to try its hand at getting licensing fees from small, independent iOS developers, and as more come creeping out of the woodwork, some international devs are considering leaving the US App Store to avoid the costs and potential legal nightmares.
