Emergency Call Security Flaw Persists in iPhone 2.1

About a month ago Dieter reported about a fairly large security flaw in firmware 2.0.2 that gave access to Safari, Email, and a frightening amount of personal data. Apple patched it in 2.1. Or did they?

This could be a flaw, or feature, but it turns out you still have the ability to make a phone call, to any number, while the iPhone is locked with a passcode. Wasn't the "emergency" call feature meant to call "emergency" numbers such as 911 only?

Apple can you please put this on your "need to fix" list? Thank you!

Apple and Video Games: Should Sony and Nintendo be Worried?

For the last two weeks we here at TiPb have been taking a deeper look into Apple's "Game On" push. Can anyone really doubt Steve Jobs is trying to make the iPhone/iPod Touch into the next big portable gaming device? Stop and think about it, he took the idea of a portable MP3 player and made it into a device that has dominated the music business ever since. Now, according to Jobsy, "you could make a pretty good argument [the iPhone is] the best portable device for playing games on."

CopierciN: Another Attempt at Copy and Paste

Just how badly do you want copy and paste? Here at TiPb we have covered several stories revolving around copy and paste, go ahead and take a look, it may just make your head spin.

Who knows if Apple will ever include copy and paste in a future firmware update... Until that day comes, if it does come, we have to rely on other means.  Namely jailbreaking.  This is where CopierciN comes into play. It is latest attempt to bring us a very simple, yet effective, feature and is now available for jailbreakers via Cydia.

ZOMG! Apple has fought back! The only way Apple can fix the exploit that the iPhone Dev Team has been using to Jailbreak iPhone's and iPod Touch's (check out our forums for more on that) is to fix their hardware, but it seems Apple has figured out a way to program iTunes 8 to detect and prevent the Pwnage exploit.

Apple may have won that battle but they have not won the war. The Dev Team reacted promptly:
