Steve Jobs: iPad 4.2 mute switch not changing, not user-definable

Ever since the iOS 4.2 beta for iPad came out, some people have been a little upset about the hardware orientation lock being changed into an iPhone-like mute switch. There's been talk (hope) of getting a settings option that would allow for the user to choose between orientation lock and mute, but now that's been dashed by an email response purportedly from Apple's top dog himself, Steve Jobs:

The question:

In IOS 4.2 for iPad is the switch on the side going to be the mute and not screen orientation lock from now on?

Jobs' answer:

Yep. Sent from my iPhone

iSeeU brings FaceTime-like video calling to iPhone 3GS [Accessory]

iSeeU brings FaceTime-like video calling to iPhone 3GS [Accessory]

There is an endless list of apps that allow you to make video calls with your iPhone 4, and aside from Apple's FaceTime, most of t hese are also compatible with the 3GS, but it can be quite awkward to video call without a front facing camera.

Korean company, PLAYMASS, have produced a new accessory that can solve the problem, iSeeU.

iSeeU clips onto your i Phone 3GS, and flips open to reveal a series of mirrors, that allow you make a video call using the rear facing camera. One neat thing about iSeeU is, you can easily swivel it off to the side to switch the cameras, so that you can still show your friend what the rear facing camera would normally see.

How to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 via greenpois0n [Jailbreak]

Wondering how to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with greenpois0n? Jailbreakers have a wealth of options when it comes to iOS 4.1.  We've already looked at how to jailbreak iOS 4.1 via limera1n and how to jailbreak via PwnageTool 4.1.  Now we're looking at the Mac version of greenpois0n.  PC users shouldn't have too much difficulty following along with any of these as the steps are generally the same.  It's really up to you what tool you decide to use.  I suggest unlockers use PwnageTool 4.1 though, as it will preserve your baseband for future unlocking.  And as always, we take no responsibility to any damage done to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.

This version of greenpois0n will jailbreak the following devices:

  • iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS
  • iPod Touch 4th and 3rd gen
  • iPad (iOS 3.2.2)

Hit the jump for a walkthrough and video!

Can iPad competitors compete?

32

Can iPad competitors compete?

This week we found out the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab would be hitting Verizon for $599, with a $20/1GB month data plan, and the Windows 7-powered HP Slate, 10 months after Steve Balmer showed it off on the CES stage, will be available to Enterprise for $799. RIM has the BlackBerry PlayBook coming next year and HP the PalmPad in the pipeline as well.

The baseline iPad 3G is $629 with a $15/256MB month AT&T plan, the baseline Wi-Fi iPad + MiFi bundle on Verizon is likewise $630 with a $20/1GB month data plan (the Mi-Fi isn't built in but can serve as a router for up to 5 devices). At that price, the iPad includes a 9.7-inch screen at 1024x768 , aluminum unibody, 1GHz A4 SoC, 256MB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 35,000 iPad and 300,000+ strong compatible App Store, the iTunes ecosystem, and a good, tablet optimized OS that's about to become great with iOS 4.2 in November.

AT&T preparing for loss of iPhone exclusivity?

AT&T preparing for loss of iPhone exclusivity?

AT&T has been quietly accumulating smartphone units to add to their war chest in anticipation of the iPhone being made available through Verizon in the near future. Bloomberg reports:

AT&T Inc., facing the possible loss of its hold on the iPhone, is adding handsets at an accelerating clip and retraining store staff to help reduce reliance on its top-selling smartphone during the holidays. AT&T clearly has tried to diversify themselves away from the iPhone, and that’s probably the right strategy since they’ve relied so heavily on the iPhone these past few years [...] this handset strategy could shelter them from some customer losses.”
