Spirit untethered Jailbreak for iPad 3.2, iPod touch, iPhone 3.12, 3.13 now live

Spirit untethered Jailbreak for iPad 3.2, iPod touch, iPhone 3.12, 3.13 now live

Spirit, an untethered jailbreak for iPad 3.2, and iPod touch and iPhone under 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 is now live. If you want it, go grab it via the link below.

A word of warning for iPad users:

On iPad, all this is still sort of beta. Some packages in Cydia, not designed for iPad, might screw up your system and require you to restore. Be careful. (And no, Cydia's appearance is not final.)

Also, not an unlock solution. This is a jailbreak.

As always, if you don't know what any of these means, stay away.

Apple-acquired Lala ending service May 31, iTunes.com not starting replacing it any time soon

Apple-acquired Lala ending service May 31, iTunes.com not starting replacing it any time soon

Streaming music service Lala, acquired by Apple back in early December, 2009, has sent a letter to subscribers telling them they're shutting down as of May 31, and while remaining credit will get transferred to iTunes, streaming music won't show up in an iTunes.com any time soon.

The Lala service will be shut down on May 31st.

In appreciation of your support over the last five years, you will receive a credit in the amount of your Lala web song purchases for use on Apple's iTunes Store. If you purchased and downloaded mp3 songs from Lala, those songs will continue to play as part of your local music library.

Remaining wallet balances and unredeemed gift cards will be converted to iTunes Store credit (or can be refunded upon request). Gift cards can be redeemed on Lala until May 31st.

Click here or visit Lala.com/support for more information, or to view Lala's Terms of Service.

Thank you.

Lala

Rumors have persisted that Apple bought Lala for the talent, or for the lower-cost transaction system, or to take iTunes to the cloud. None of that has materialized so far, but speculation remains that Steve Jobs will drop hints of a Lala-inspired iTunes future at the All Things Digital Conference (where he's introduced a new version of iTunes before), or at WWDC 2010 alongside the 4th generation iPhone (iPhone HD/iPhone 4G) and the final version of iPhone OS 4. If not, Apple's traditional September iTunes and iPod event would be the next likely candidate.

That is, if music companies allow it.

H.264 ascendant: why Apple's no-Flash, no-Theora gamble is playing off

H.264 ascendant: why Apple's no-Flash, no-Theora gamble is playing off

H.264, the video codec Apple supports for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad playback, and for the HTML5 video tag in Safari, and now Microsoft is supporting it as well, which means its 66% share will likely go up. Add to that Steve Jobs think the competing, Firefox-supported license-free alternative, OGG Theora, will face patent infringement claims, and it's looking like we have a web video standards winner.

iPad Wi-Fi + 3G: torn down

iPad Wi-Fi + 3G: torn down

Bookending the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G unboxing from earlier today is the other classic staple of geekdom: the tear-down. As usual iFixit did the deed, and here's what they uncovered:

  • There are actually FIVE antennas in this iPad. Two antennas handle the cell reception -- one is in the RF window on top, the other attaches to the LCD frame. A single GPS antenna is also housed in the RF window on top. Just like the iPad Wi-Fi, there are two antennas that handle Wi-Fi / Bluetooth connectivity, one in the Apple logo and another to the left of the dock connector.
