Luxury yacht uses iPad as onboard concierge

If you have $600,000 to spare, how about booking a week on this luxury yacht... controlled by iPads. The yacht, named Solemates, allows guests to control various functions while onboard via their iPads. This includes the cabin climate control system, various audio and visual entertainment options as well as lighting and blinds within the cabin.

If you wear yourself out messing around with all these control options on your iPad, you can order a crew member to drop in a refreshing cocktail to pep you up again. Don’t worry if you don’t have an iPad; or left your own at home, the Captain issues them to boarding guests.

iPad 2 to be smaller and have better audio [rumor]

According to an anonymous Chinese source, iPad 2 will be slightly smaller, but will retain the 9.7” LCD panel. This basically means that Apple has reduced the size of the bezel surrounding the screen to decrease the overall size. The source claims the new dimensions will be 238mm x 186mm against 242.8mm x 189.7mm dimensions of the current iPad. The rear of the iPad 2 will also be flatter and similar in styling to the latest iPod Touch.

Untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak confirmed

MuscleNerd from the iPhone Dev Team has confirmed via Twitter that he has managed to get an untethered jailbreak working for iOS 4.2.1 devices. Currently the only jailbreak available for iOS 4.2.1 involves tethering your device to a Mac or PC in the event that your device needs a reboot. This could be problematic if you are out and are away from your notebook or desktop machine.

ipt4g 4.2.1 untethered JB w/4.2b3 kernel ... Wastes no exploits, but upcoming @comex JB maybe better

In order to use this method, you must have had your SHSH blobs saved with Cydia or TinyUmbrella, as the exploit uses iOS 4.2 beta 3. No news on the release date of this yet, or Comex’s upcoming jailbreak, but we will let you know as soon as we find out.

The jailbreak will work with all iOS devices, the question is, do you want your 4.2.1 jailbreak right... or simply right now? Video after the break.
