1Password vs. DataVault for iPhone: Fight!

Passwords are an important part of having an online presence. I always tell friends and family that you should never ever have the same password for all of your accounts. (Do they listen? Probably not.) Either way, having the same password means if someone gets hold of one of your accounts, they could potentially have access to all of them. Having separate passwords is the best idea but then comes keeping track of all of them. Apps like 1Password and DataVault set out to solve that problem.

I took a look at both of these popular password management apps and pitted them against each other. Follow along to see which one came out on top!

Amazing guitar solo performed with only the GarageBand app and an iPad [video]

We know that Apple’s GarageBand has the potential to be able to create great pieces of music, for those talented enough be able to use it properly. One of those people is George Lambro who has created a mesmerizing guitar solo backed by drums and bass. All of the instruments were played using the GarageBand app on his iPad.

This is me creating a jam track with apple's Garageband app for the iPad and then shredding a guitar solo over it! I am sorry about the bad video quality, but i could not find a way to record iPad's screen in a fast framerate. Anyway i believe you will get the idea. Hope you enjoy!

Take a look at the video after the break then let us know what you think. Have any of our readers managed to get GarageBand performing as good? Let us know in the comments!

Daily Tip: How to unfriend someone on Facebook

You know who they are -- the person you kinda sorta know, acquaintance of an acquaintance type of thing -- and they keep inviting you to events in other countries, adding you to groups you couldn't care any less about, and spamming your wall with their virus links, and you're just dying to know how to unfriend them.

Well, rest easy. It's not rude. It's not anti-social. It's not you -- it's them. They're unfriendable. And it's Facebook, with their "invite all", "add to group", and other easy-to-abuse buttons. You're not breaking any covenants that ought not be broken. You're simply restoring your Facebook sanity. And we're going to help you... after the break.

Installer 4.0 jailbreak app store returns to the scene, compatible with iOS 4.3.x [Jailbreak]

Installer 4.0 is now available in Cydia and is compatible with iOS 4.3.x firmware and below. Installer was the first jailbreak app store, back before Apple even announced the official App Store, but disappeared when RipDev stopped developing it. Cydia quickly came along to fill the gap, but now the Infini-Dev team has brought it back.

Yesterday we had success "porting" Installer to 4.3.3 and below. Installer works with a different system than Cydia, thats why you won’t be able to add a Cydia repo into installer. As we speak we are working on a new community source for installer only, which means you will be able to install things via installer.

Square app gets updated for iPhone and iPad

Square is a mobile payment system that was started by one of the co-founders of Twitter, Jack Dorsey. It has built a lot of momentum recently and a ton of small businesses have adopted it because of its flexibility, ease of use, and straight forward fee policy. I use it for my own business and actually just chose it as my pick of the week.

Square just received a rather significant update that allows business owners to showcase their products through a feature called "virtual shelves". While the update makes its way to both iPhone and iPad, you'll notice more differences in the iPad version. The iPhone version has a re-designed UI but virtual shelves is currently only available to iPad Square users. You can now add product variations and sort items into shelves. Hit the jump for a complete list of changes and more screens!
