TWCable TV App updated, more channels available but now blocks jailbroken devices

The TW Cable app has just been updated by Time Warner and has added in some nice new features to an already impressive app -- but it now also blocks Jailbroken devices. So the good news is, you now have over 100 channels available to watch from within the app and also a remote DVR Manager for compatible cable boxes. The downside, if you decide to update and have a jailbroken iPad, the the app will block you from viewing any content.

Remote Potato HD heading to the iPad, Windows Media Center and iPad in perfect harmony

Remote Potato HD heading to the iPad, Windows Media Center and iPad in perfect harmony

Remote Potato HD is coming soon for the iPad and if you’re a Windows Media Center user this could be the perfect app. With Remote Potato HD you can browse and stream all of your Windows Media Center content directly to your iPad in high resolution; locally or over the internet. You can also access your Media Center EPG (Electronic Program Guide) and schedule recordings all from within the app.

Another great feature, if you have an Apple TV, is AirPlay. As Remote Potato HD uses the Apple video player, to play back content, AirPlay can be used to stream to your Apple TV 2. This would enable your Apple TV to become a type of Media Center Extender.

In order to use the app with your Media Center system, you will have to install an application that handles the streaming and transcoding. This is available free from Remote Potato. The app has already been submitted to Apple for approval; so expect it to arrive any day now. No news on pricing yet but the existing version for iPhone and iPod touch is priced at $6.99.

There is a video demo of the app after the break. It looks like a fantastic solution; if you are a Windows Media Center and iPad user. I will be trying this one out as soon as it is available!

Comex to address camera connection kit issues caused by jailbreakme [jailbreak]

If you have jailbroken your iPad with the recently released Jailbreakme exploit and use the official Apple Camera Connection Kit, you may have noticed that it no longer works. Apparently Comex knows all about the problem and will be issuing a fix for it today. The fix will enable you to use the Camera Connection Kit as normal and will also address some packages from Cydia that have had problems too.

According to Comex, the fix will be in the form of a download from Cydia; if you are already jailbroken. We assume then that it should be part of any new jailbreak in the future; but don’t quote us on that!

Daily Tip: How to use encrypted disk images with Dropbox to Protect your sensitive files

Has all the furor surrounding Dropbox lately made you wonder how you can better protect your private information? It's always a good rule of thumb to assume that any file you store using a service that has any internet connection at all is by its very nature not protected. (For a variety of reasons, legal or otherwise.) However, there's nothing to stop you from making your files as secure as possible, encrypting them before they ever hit Dropbox's servers. We'll show you how, after the break.

    iPhone prototype running China Mobile -- Real, fake, or really fake?

    iPhone prototype running China Mobile -- Real, fake, or really fake?

    Sohu.com published a photo of what appears to be an iPhone prototype running on the China Mobile network. If it isn't fake -- and we take such things with a Great Wall sized grain of salt -- it suggests the iPhone maybe coming to the world's largest carrier sooner rather than later.

    The phone appears to run baseband software with version number 06.10.01, which hasn’t been released yet. It also lacks an IMEI number, just like an iPhone 4 prototype we spotted on eBay. Evaluation devices normally have no IMEI number.

    Teach your kids to read and write with Pre-K Letters and Numbers for iPhone and iPad

    BrightStart LLC's educational app, Pre-K Letters and Numbers for iPhone and iPad, aims to teach children to read and write. The app displays a letter or number, calls it by it's name, has the child trace it, then phonetically pronounces it and associates it with a word.

    • Individual user setup (optional)
    • Online child performance Report Card (optional)
    • Simple and easy to use design
    • Memorable characters, pictures, shapes and sounds
    • Positive learning experiences
    • Numbers, words and phonics include a full word set of animals, fruits, vegetables and items around the house
    • Learn early foundations of language and numeracy
    • Learn how to recognize, read, write and pronounce upper and lower case letters
    • Learn consonants and vowels
    • Learn phonograms
    • Learn early stage numbers and counting

    In just the few moments I spent with the free trial, I was impressed by this app. It runs very smooth, has soothing music, and speaks clearly. I look forward to letting my daughter learn from it when she gets older.

    The initial download for Pre-K Letters and Numbers is a free trial and to unlock All Letters and Numbers and the Report Card, there is an in-app purchase for $1.99. Screenshots after the break.

    Could 5 new iOS devices make up Apple's fall family?

    Previous years have seen Apple's annual fall music event showcase iTunes and iPod in decreasingly spectacular fashion, last year's exceptions being the iPod touch 4 with cameras and the all new, all iOS-powered Apple TV. This year could be very different, with the possibility of Apple introducing up to 5 new iOS devices to the family at roughly the same time. It would be unprecedented, but so was no new iPhone back at WWDC 2011 in June.

    Apple preparing patch for JailbreakMe.com PDF exploit

    As expected, Apple is preparing a software update -- likely iOS 4.3.4 for most devices, iOS 4.2.9 for the Verizon iPhone -- to close the PDF exploit behind JailbreakMe.com. While JailbreakMe.com uses the exploit to Jailbreak current iOS firmware and install the Cydia app store, the same exploit could be used by a hacker to easily gain access to a user's device for malicious purposes.
