Working Flash on iPhone and iPod touch?

We all know Flash isn't going to come from Apple, but it appears the man responsible for the Spirit Jailbreak may also have gotten Flash up and running on the iPhone and iPod Touch anyway. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that if and when a capability like this is released, you'd have to be jailbroken in order to use it.

This appears to be a very early release but it still shows potential for those who really want/need Flash on their iOS devices.  Perhaps an iPad release would follow shortly?  Any iPhone or iPod Touch users out there who would jailbreak just in order to get Flash?  Real or fake? Hit the jump for a video.

WWDC attendent gets mugged. Apple gives him new iPad. Steve wishes him safe travels home.

Apple invited a developer from TenCent, China's most popular instant messaging client, to WWDC 2010. During his stay in San Francisco, the developer got mugged for his iPad. He escaped with a few injuries and his completely smashed iPad. Afterwards, he went to an Apple Store and told his story. The Apple Genius was totally awesome and hooked up the developer with a brand new iPad. News of the incident eventually reached Steve Jobs and he sent the developer a very quick Steve-like email:

Safe travels home.
Steve

This story leaves me speechless. It's wonderful that Apple replaced that developer's iPad. It's also great the Steve sent him an email, but should he have at least said more than 3 words?

More images after the break.

Does the iPhone 4 really have Retina Display?

Apple states that the iPhone 4's 3.5-inch display has 614,400 78 micrometer-wide pixels which gives us a density of 326 ppi (pixels per inch). Apple claims this will give the iPhone 4 a, "pixel density so high that the human eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels" (at 12 inches). So, is this just a bit of marketing magic or does the iPhone 4 display really venture beyond the limits of the human eye?

Good night WWDC 2010, see you next year

In with the roar of iPhone 4, out with the whisper of tuckered developers jetting home, WWDC 2010 draws to a close. What with the aforementioned new hardware, the Gold Master seed of the newly renamed iOS 4, Safari 5, Xcode 4, and more secret sessions than any non-Vulcan brain could comfortably take in, there's no doubt we'll be seeing even more amazing iPhone and iPad apps and soon.

We have a bunch more video interviews still to edit and post, including such luminaries as 1Password, Bjango, Navigon, and Glasshouse.
