iPad 2 might just have a camera, better resolution display [Rumors]

More rumors out of the supply chain today suggest that iPad 2 might indeed have a camera -- front and back, actually -- and once again a better resolution display is being mentioned as well. Kelvin Soh and Argin Chang, reporting for Reuters, spoke to four people "familiar with the situation":

Two could only confirm they were ramping up for a new round of production in the first quarter for components previously supplied for the original iPad, while two said the ramp-up was for a new iPad.

One of those said the revamped model would feature cameras on the front and rear, while the other said the new model would be slimmer, lighter and have a better resolution display.

ASLR security coming to jailbroken iPhones with Antid0te

In an effort to make your iPhone more secure, security analyst and jailbreak developer Stefan Esser is releasing Antid0te on December 14th. Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) is a security technique which involves randomly arranging the positions of key data areas. This usually includes rearranging the base of the executable and position of libraries, heap, and stack, in a process' address space. This makes it difficult for someone trying to execute shellcode injection on the stack by requiring them to have to first find the stack. Many of the most popular and sophisticated Operating Systems already use ASLR, including Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX (10.5+).

iPad 2 cases reveal rear-facing camera, SD card slot?

Yes, we've reached supposed case-leak season in the pre-iPad 2 hype cycle and a couple of these bad boys have been spotted sporting what looks like cutouts for rear-facing camera and SD card cut slots.

As always, these cases could be spot on or complete wrong, real, fake or really fake, so check out the picture and let us know what you think. Will we be getting a rear-facing camera and SD card slot on iPad 2?
