AT&T fires back at Verizon with simultaneous voice and data commercial

The new Verizon iPhone commercial tore into AT&T's network but AT&T loaded their own cannons with some simultaneous voice and data and just shot back with a commercial of their own.

Called Answer the commercial highlights a man who gets a call from his wife double-checking on their anniversary plans -- which he of course forgot to make. He promptly puts the call into the background and jumps onto the internet, something that couldn't be done on Verizon (unless the man's office had, you know, Wi-Fi...)

Video after the break, let us know how compelling the counter commercial is in comments!

Greenpois0n RC5 Jailbreak for iPhone, iPad iOS 4.2.1 updated

Greenpois0n RC5, the latest Jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, has been updated to version 2, which should fix some of the issues users have been experiencing. Mainly the issue where your jailbreak will just sit at "Greenpois0n Initialized". Hopefully this version will take care of that bug. I know a few people have been having issues even loading Greenpois0n.com. There are also several mirrors available, so keep checking the comments for the latest on those.

NFL teams may replace playbooks with iPads

A few NFL teams, including the Dallas Cowboys, might soon be joining the 21st century by adopting of iPads to replace their paper playbooks and game-day printouts. This could help keep some teams from using over 5,000 pieces of paper per game!

Not only would this help save some trees but think of the possibilities for the teams as well. No longer will they need to wait for a photo of a defense to be printed out -- they can get those pictures wirelessly on their iPads with the ability to zoom in for details. Also maybe they could get video of a great play for the players to take a look at and see what worked for them. All of this would be live and in the moment with annimation and depth rather than printed on a piece of paper.

Apple designs future iPads and more with a built-in kickstand? [Patent Watch]

Patently Apple got their hands on an Apple patent application that shows future iPads may just be designed with a built-in kickstand. iPads, and perhaps Cinema Displays, would have the ability to pivot to allow for use in landscape and portrait mode. Apple states that products with displays need a mechanism to support the object in multiple configurations. The patent also mentions the possible addition of a kickstand to other Apple products such as the iPhone.

Would you like to see a kickstand on a future version of the iPad or even maybe the iPhone someday?
