President Obama calls Steve Jobs' success an example of American wealth

During a speech yesterday, President Obama cited Apple's very own Steve Jobs' success as an example of someone who Americans should expect to be rich. He used Jobs as an example to show others the possibilities of business in our modern times. President Obama answered a reporters question prior to making his comments about Jobs.

What is...a fact is that people in the top 1 percent, people in the top one-tenth of 1 percent, or one-hundredth of 1 percent have a larger share of income and wealth than any time since the 1920s. Those are just facts. That's not a feeling on the part of Democrats. Those are facts.

SHAtter bootrom exploit possibly leaked, what it means for jailbreakers

SHAtter bootrom exploit possibly leaked, what it means for jailbreakers

The SHAtter exploit found by pod2g appears to have been leaked. Who leaked it and for what reason is still unclear. What is clear is that Apple will certainly find a way to patch the hardware if it did in fact leak. When Limera1n was released, it kept the SHAtter bootrom exploit safe for future jailbreaks as it would require a complete hardware revision to be done by Apple.

SHAtter basically used a hardware exploit in the A4 series of devices (iPhone 4, iPad, AppleTV 2nd generation, and iPod Touch 4G). You can bet Apple will make a hardware revision to patch SHAtter. It seems there is some drama between some members of the jailbreak community over who actually "leaked" the SHAtter exploit.

@P0isixninja of the Chronic Dev Team is pointing a blame finger to @Musclenerd. As Musclenerd concentrates on unlocks, it seems unreasonable to think he'd leak an exploit he would need in order to create an unlock. Click through for a response to the drama from @comex, who claims if it doesn't stop, he'll just e-mail the exploit directly to Apple. Not good news for the jailbreak community.

Skyfire Web Browser brings flash and social browsing to iPad

Skyfire Web Browser brings flash and social browsing to iPad

After an anxious wait it looks like Skyfire is finally out for the iPad. Just like the iPhone version of Skyfire that released in early November, iPad users can tap into the millions of flash videos available online through a clever conversion process conducted on Skyfire's servers. In addition to the regular flash-enabling features Skyfire brings to the table, the developers have packed in a ton of great social functionality for you to play with.

You can do things like check your Facebook or Twitter news feeds from the bottom toolbar, along with sharing links to a number of social services and others like Read It Later. They've also decided to include a universal 'like' button for users who want to share what they're reading (or watching) with friends on Facebook.

But they didn't stop there. Skyfire for iPad has a 'Fireplace' button along the bottom which lets you quickly get to the links that only your Facebook friends have shared, making it easy to check out what your friends have been looking at online without even leaving the app. Two more small yet significant features are the ability to browse in full-screen, and Skyfire's tab UI which felt very snappy compared to Safari.

You can get a full feature-list and pictures after the break, and don't forget to tell us your likes and dislikes for Skyfire on the iPad in the comments below!

[iTunes -- $4.99]

No network admin? No problem if you have an iPhone and FaceTime!

FaceTime isn't the first video calling implementation on a smartphone but it's the first one that's easy to use and has a common and widespread install base, and that brings with it some interesting and decidedly futuristic advantages. Take this, which happened to a friend of mine today:

NoseDial brings easy nose dialling to iPhone

NoseDial brings easy nose dialling to iPhone

NoseDial for iPhone does just what the name suggests -- lets you dial your iPhone with your nose. Sound strange? What else do you do when it’s freezing outside and you need to make a couple of calls on your iPhone? You first have to remove your gloves and risk those cold temperatures, unless of course you have a special pair of gloves that work with capacitive touch screens.

NoseDial shows your contacts in a large button grid with pictures; if you have them assigned to your contacts. To scroll through the list you can just tilt your iPhone  or swipe (with your nose), find the contact you want then touch it again with your nose to dial, simple.

Ok it’s not actually a real iPhone 4; but that only makes this more interesting. The huge iPhone 4 is actually made from fifty six iPads all set in a lookalike iPhone 4 case.

iPhone, Android, and the difference between usability and functionality [Sticky]

iPhone, Android, and the difference between usability and functionality [Sticky]

Last night I quoted Marco Armant asking if Android phones would ever achieve iPhone-level polish and usability and a lot of Android enthusiasts fired back that they could do things on Android that they couldn't do on iPhone, so Android was more usable.

Well, no.

That's not usability, that's functionality. Those two can be as diametrically opposed as simplicity and complexity...

AirPlay hacks: AirFlick, Air Video Server, XBMC, live conversion, DVDs, DRM, screencasts

AirPlay hacks: AirFlick, Air Video Server, XBMC, live conversion, DVDs, DRM, screencasts

Erica Sadun from TUAW is relentlessly prosecuting her AirPlay and Apple TV hacks with a whole series of posts that include turning your Mac into an AirPlay server via the AirFlick app, transcoding AVI and other non-Apple supported videos for use with Airplay, running AirPlay on an XBMC Linux box, playing DVDs on Apple TV via AirPlay, playing iTunes FairPlay DRM protected videos, and sending Mac screencasts to Apple TV. Yeah. Phew.

A lot of this is strictly alpha and proofs of concept at this point and requires a good amount of ninja level skill to implement, but if that's the way you like your hacks, head on over and try them out:
