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.”

President Obama signs iPad

Sylvester Caan dropped us a note to tell us (and show us!) his iPad being signed by US President Barak Obama. Take it away, Sylvester:

At a rally in Seattle, WA at the University of Washington, the President used the touchscreen on my iPad to give me his autograph.

He looked slightly surprised, but proceeded to use his finger to scribble on the iPad using the Adobe Ideas app.

How well was he able to sign? Check out the results after the break. And if you and your iPhone or iPad have had any brushes with power or celebrity, let us know in the comments!

How to Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with PwntageTool 4.1 [Jailbreak]

PwnageTool 4.1 was recently released and a lot of jailbreakers have been waiting for this one.  The main difference between some other methods and PwnageTool is that it preserves your baseband in most cases.  Meaning for unlockers, they'll still be able to safely upgrade and keep their unlock.  We've covered how to jailbreak iOS 4.1 via limera1n and how to jailbreak iOS 4.1 via greenpois0n, and now we'll look at how PwnageTool 4.1 differs and walk through this process as well.

PwnageTool 4.1 will jailbreak the following devices:

  • iPhone 4, 3GS, and 3G
  • iPod Touch 4G and 3G
  • iPad
  • Apple TV 2nd Generation

As usual, we take no responsibility for what you may or may not do to your phone.  If you're okay with that, jump through for a regular and video walkthrough!
