Reckless Racing HD for iPad - app review

If your looking for a fun, simple racer with awesome graphics, then Reckless Racing HD might be for you. Playing this game reminds of RC Pro Am Racing on the original Nintendo, or NES. The premise is simple; beat other racers to win the championship.

The game is played with an overhead isometric view. There are several different control options, but I enjoy the default which is gas and break on the far right and left and right turn arrow on the left, the control is spot on too.

iOS 4.1 security flaw allows calls to be made on passcode locked iPhone

It looks as if there's yet another Phone.app security hole, this time in iOS 4.1 that allows someone to get around a passcode locked iPhone, gain access to the owner's contact list, make calls and send emails to anyone in said contact list.  From MacStories:

"To reproduce the bug, make sure to have a passcode lock turned on and lock your device. In the lockscreen, tap on Emergency Call in the lower left corner. Now type a non-existent emergency number, I tried #946494. Start the call, and as soon as the red button appear hit the sleep button. You’ll be brought to the contact list."

The godfather of iOS development, Craig Hockenberry wondered out loud on Twitter about just why Apple would change the iPad's hardware orientation lock to a mute switch in iOS 4.2, and if it could be related to future, FaceTime-equipped iPad 2 hardware:

When (not if) an iPad has FaceTime, will silencing the alerts be more important than orientation? Depends on the person and how they use it…

Earlier this morning it was outline how Hollywood stars and producers alike have been quick to adopt the Apple iPad to help with their day-to-day work.

"When you’re carrying a little TV around, you bring the power of imagery to places that you don’t normally have it,” Mr. Orci said in an interview.
