Apple to patch Jailbreakme.com, PDF font exploit in upcoming software update

I think we all generally assumed this, but it's nice to see Apple going on record as saying they'll patch the PDF font exploit that currently allows Jailbreakme.com -- and potentially any malicious hacker out there -- to run code on an iPhone with just the tap of a web button. CNET scored the quote from an Apple spokeswoman:

"We're aware of this reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to customers in an upcoming software update."

iPod touch 4 case leaks show camera, flash?

As spring turns to summer and fall, iPad and iPhone leaks turn to iPod touch -- witness the images above which claim to reveal iPod touch 4 complete with camera and flash.

HardMac claims the image came from a case manufacturer, the same who leaked the iPod mini (nano) camera last year, and that Apple typically provides advance size and shape information to these manufacturers. (Though clearly not for iPhone 4).

Woz talks iPhone 4 antenna, Google, and Steve Jobs

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently held an interview at the Campus Party in Valencia, Spain. He talked about the iPhone 4's antenna problems, Apples relationship with Google, his roll at Apple, and his relationship with Steve Jobs.

Here's some of what he had to say.

On iPhone 4 antenna

  • "I have not really had a problem with the antenna... I think it’s a very tiny, tiny problem that is blown out of proportion because there are a lot of people who want to accuse Apple of a mistake only because Apple has been so good with its products, creating the products that we all love."

  • "Even though I can cause the problem on my iPhone 4, I don’t have the problem in real usage."

  • "A problem that is imagined to exist is that much greater the more you love the product that you’re afraid won’t work"

On Google

  • "In recent times, I’ve been a little saddened to encounter the controversy between Apple and Google."

  • "I love Google, but I’m afraid it has a chance of becoming the Microsoft of the future. You remember how Microsoft used all of their ownership of the operating system to take over the browser."

On his role at Apple

  • "Although I receive a small salary from Apple, I do virtually no real work at the company."

  • "I like to be more on the outside of Apple, because I prefer to judge products objectively."

On Steve Jobs

  • "I chat with Steve Jobs now and then, from time to time, and we have never had an argument. We have always been friends. We are not close friends like we once were, spending every day together."

What do you think? Is the iPhone 4 antenna problem blown out of proportion? Are you afraid of Google becoming the next Microsoft?

My follow up question to Mr. Woz is what exactly he considers a small salary!

Check out video of the interview after the break.

Crazy next-gen iPod, iPad, and iPhone rumors

Could Apple be getting ready to release a 7" iPad nano and re-designed iPhone 5 as early as January? Could the iPod shuffle or nano with a 1.7" screen be around the corner in September? Are bumpers going all-silicone?

Our gut says crazy talk, but iLounge has a pretty good track record on leaks so take these for what they're worth, even if it's with an ocean-sized grain of salt.

Here are some details:

Apple investigating web-based exploit used for iOS 4, iPhone 4 Jailbreak

Apple is aware of the web-based exploit used to Jailbreak iOS 4 and iPhone 4, but also potentially able to allow malicious access to any iPhone -- Jailbroken or not -- and are investigating it.

While many users were thrilled at the rapidity and simplicity with which Comex et. al. delivered an iOS 4 and iPhone 4 Jailbreak, that same exploit could just as rapidly and simply be used to hack any iPhone for any reason -- including malicious ones like stealing your data.
