Last major holdout, Random House, coming to iBooks?

Random House will be adopting the Apple and iBooks-centric 70/30 "agency model" tomorrow, the day before Apple's iPad 2 event on Wednesday.

"The agency model guarantees a higher margin for retailers than did our previous sales terms," Random House said in a statement. "We are making this change both as an investment in the successful digital transition of our existing partners and in order to give us the opportunity to forge new retail relationships."

Coincidence or a sign the iBooks catalog might soon be a little less sparse?

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

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.
