when they say that TIPB is your 1 stop shop for all IOS news,they R really not kidding...i used to be as skeptical as every new TIPB reader but i can't be prouder to say that i was wrong. ;)

Tipb is awesome and all, but 9 to 5 Mac often has the stories posted way earlier, along with more stories

Great podcast. Seth is a wealth of information. Should have him on often. Of course would not be a great show without Rene, or Geirgia.

The conversation concerning jailbreaks on this episode confused me. The fact that an exploit is available does not automatically mean that a jailbreak will become possible. If that was the case, the Dev team could have released a jailbreak for 4.2 or 4.2.1 immediately upon it's release rather than taking months and months to do nothing. The shatter exploit was there and available when 4.2 was released. There was no jailbreak released immediately afterwards. I think this is a fair indication that the dev team has more to do than develop simply the exploit. If they wait for 4.3 to be released, they will have a new development cycle under way which could take months. By the time their jailbreak is released 4.4 will be prepping for release. The point is you can't wait for the next version of the software to release a jailbreak. You have to do it as quickly as possible. Apple will patch things regardless of if they think they are security holes or not. An important reminder is, just because you have an iPhone4 doesn't mean many other people don't have an iPhone 3GS. The shatter exploit only works for the iPhone4, as many of you forget.
Again to reiterate, having an exploit available does not mean to jailbreak is finished. It means the first and most important step is completed, but the actual jailbreak could have weeks or months to develop.

It's funny how you were taking about using 5gs of data a month and I just looked at my iPhone's monator and I received 10gs of data already this month lol.

I want to clarify the Google Voice over VOIP issue.
Using just Google Voice, it only runs integrated with your regular cell plan and you use minutes.
If, however, you use Google Voice with the Talkatone app, it integrates with Gchat and allows you to make calls and receive calls over your cell plan data or WiFi.
I have the two apps on my iPhone 4 and just loaded them on my 3G that does not have phone minutes or a data plan. I was able to place a call and receive it from my 3G.
This link more fully describes Talkatone and how to integrate it with Google Voice for use over WiFi or cell data plans:
