Barrel tweak brings cube transitions to iPhone SpringBoard [Jailbreak]

Jailbreak developer Aaron Ash released his latest tweak today in the Cydia app store named Barrel which makes your iPhone SpringBoard appear as if it is part of a 3D cube when you switch between pages. The premise of this tweak may be pretty simple but it looks stunning when installed. To make changes you can go into the Settings app and select between making your icons appear as if they are on the outside of the 3D cube or on the inside of the 3D cube.

The only caveat to this tweak is that it requires at least iOS 4.x and it will not work on the iPad at this time. If you are on an iPhone or iPod touch and are currently jailbroken, go check this out and pick it up for $2.99 now in the Cydia app store.

Check out a video of Barrel in action after the break and let us know what you think. Will you be using it?

Apple iPhone, iPad Software Update servers down - Start your iOS 4.2 rumors?

Looks like the Apple software update servers are acting very oddly this morning. They are sporadically going down, then back up. Could this mean iOS 4.2 is imminent? As we near the end of November, it isn't unreasonable to think that Apple is getting close to releasing iOS 4.2. As of now, I've had the update servers tell me twice the update servers couldn't be contacted. Once it told me my software is up to date. We'll keep checking!

UPDATED: Misquoted? Steve Wozniak: Android will be the dominant platform

In an interview with a Dutch newspaper, Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak made quite the statement about Apple's main competition, saying Google's Android would be the dominant platform in the future.

Woz told the newpaper that Android smartphones (yes Android is not a phone but an operating system), not the iOS powered iPhone would become the dominant smartphone on the market much like Windows was and still is the dominant PC OS. He also added that he believes Android phones have more features that users want and gives users more choices overall. He also believes eventually Android quality, consistency, and user satisfaction will match that of iOS.
