iOS 4.3 unlock working on iPhone 4 basebands 3.10.01 and 2.10.04?

iOS 4.3 is surely on the horizon. That leaves many unlockers wondering whether or not there will be an unlock ready. It's been a while but it appears a tweet from @sherif_hashim may be confirming that the issues have finally been worked out.

Don't go upgrading just yet though! MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team stated earlier that an iPhone 4 unlock solution would not be released until after iOS 4.3 goes public. This unlock would allow iPhone 4 users to unlock their phones on the newer basebands (3.10.01 and 2.10.04).

Apple starts using WebKit2 in Mac OS X Lion Safari... Will iOS 5 be next?

Looks like Apple has finally shipped WebKit2 as part of Safari 5 in the recent Mac OS X Lion beta -- so does that mean we can expect it in iOS 5 for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad? Originally announced in April, 2010 just as the first iPad was arriving:

WebKit2 is designed from the ground up to support a split process model, where the web content (JavaScript, HTML, layout, etc) lives in a separate process. This model is similar to what Google Chrome offers, with the major difference being that we have built the process split model directly into the framework, allowing other clients to use it.

BBC holding an event at the same time as the iPad 2 launch, are they linked?

The BBC (British Broadcasting Company) is holding an unspecified press event on Wednesday March 2nd at 6pm GMT, which coincides exactly to the Apple iPad 2 launch event.

Now this could be pure coincidence, but throw into the mix that the BBC event will be hosted by none other than self confessed Apple fan Stephen Fry and this sets alarm bells ringing. Mr Fry was one of the first people to get their hands on the original iPad last year so it all starts to make sense, well a little anyway!
