redsn0w beta Jailbreak for iPhone3G, iPod touch 2 on iOS 4.1, 4.0

redsn0w beta Jailbreak for iPhone3G, iPod touch 2 on iOS 4.1, 4.0

The Dev-Team have released a redsn0w beta Jailbreak for iPhone3G, iPod touch 2 on iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.0.

It uses the same pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit that we’ve been using since the 2.x days. It does not include the SHAtter exploit developed by pod2g. Nothing new is revealed to Apple with this jailbreak.

If you use the ultrasn0w unlock, they tell you to wait for pwnagetool as redsn0w requires you to update with Apple's firmware which might shut down the possibility for you to unlock "forever".

iOS 4.2 features: AirPrint in action

iOS 4.2 features: AirPrint in action

AirPrint is Apple’s wireless printing service. By the time it ships with iOS 4.2, it should be able to send pages from your iPad or iPhone to almost any printer on the same Wi-Fi network, or to certain printers directly (HP ePrint have already been announced). Needless to say, this answers one huge piece of previously missing functionality. (The one it doesn’t answer, and still isn’t answered, is easier file transfer and sync).

Currently, in order to test AirPrint, you need iOS 4.2 beta, Mac OS X 10.6.5 beta, and a network attached printer. Oliver Haslam from the I-Blog had all three so he put together a video, after the break.

For more, check out our complete iOS 4.2 for iPad walkthrough.

No FaceTime for Middle-East iPhone 4?

No FaceTime for Middle-East iPhone 4?

Looks like there's no FaceTime for the Middle-East version of iPhone 4 if local product pages are to be believed. Michael Rose of TUAW:

This adjustment to the product sites -- just ahead of the anticipated late September launch of the phone in these countries -- may represent merely a cosmetic tweak, keeping the cultural sensitivities of these largely Islamic countries in mind. Or it might mean the feature itself is going to be blocked for iPhone users there; note that it's not just the image that's changed, the current versions of the iPhone pages omit the description of FaceTime as well.

iOS 4.2 Voice Memo icon - one of these things is no longer like the others

iOS 4.2 Voice Memo icon - one of these things is no longer like the others

iOS 4.2 for iPhone brings with it a new Voice Memo icon and with it the most drastic redesign of a built-in iOS app icon to date.

Yes, Calculator got a facelift recently, but it retained that pseudo-realistic look and feel Apple used for the other "utility" apps, like Compass and Camera. Voice Memo goes from faux microphone to strictly white icon, similar now to Phone or iPod, but without the diagonal pin stripe. If it was in the dock it might fit, but grouped in the default Utility folder, it kind of sticks out.

Updated: VLC for iPad hits iTunes App Store

VLC for iPad has hit the iTunes App Store, bringing with it support for a far wider ranger of video and audio formats than are natively supported by Apple.

They don't state exactly which formats are supported by VLC though we're guessing those AVI and MKV files so popular on the internet will be among them.

Apple buys Polar Rose face-recognition company

Apple buys Polar Rose face-recognition company

Apple has once again opened that $40+ billion bank account and, according to reports, purchased Swedish face-recognition company, Polar Rose.

The Malmö-based company specializes in developing technology which makes facial recognition, not unlike what Apple already has and uses iPhoto for Mac OS X. Through sophisticated algorithms, manages the software of the Arctic Rose to recognize faces in images and the company offers three different products using this solution. Two of the (Face Cloud and FaceLib) them seem to be very interesting for Apple.

Likely yet another talent and technology acquisition, will this simply be used to bolster the existing iPhoto/Aperture Faces feature, or could Apple have grander plans for facial recognition? They do have iSight on Mac and front-facing cameras on iPhone and iPod touch, and likely iPad as well soon.
