Even though, when iOS betas are released by Apple, jailbreaking isn’t necessarily number one on users’ agendas, many of us like to have the option of installing some of the many great tweaks offered by the community.
Thanks to the continual endeavors of the iPhone Dev Team, those having just updated to iOS 6 beta 3 can jailbreak their device using the just released version of Redsn0w.
The jailbreak for the third beta follows the same sequence as those of the first two betas in that it is tethered boot only and is limited to A4 based devices namely the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G. As a registered developer, I trust most of you know what this entails, but for the sake of clarification, it basically means whenever your iOS 6 device is switched off or rebooted, you’ll need to reconnect to your PC or Mac in order to get it up and running once again. Failure to do so will basically render your device useless, so is not advised on your “daily runner.”
The app lists all 12,000 first-aiders in Singapore and lets you put out a call for help. When an SOS is requested, an alert goes out to all first-aiders within a 2 KM radius. One of these workers can accept the request and get a map to the person in distress.
If there are no first-aiders nearby, users can call for an ambulance or follow the provided route to the nearest hospital, instead. New first-aiders can also use the app to add themselves to the database.
Etón is one of the few Apple accessory manufacturers that seems to be embracing photovoltaic (solar) technology to power its products.
Earlier this year I reviewed Etón’s Mobius case for the iPhone 4 and 4S, which features an 1800 mAh battery coupled with a solar charging panel to keep your device topped off with power whenever it is illuminated with the sun or indoor lights.
Now the company has introduced the Rukus Solar Bluetooth Sound System (US$150.00 MSRP) to give your tunes a boost without the need for a power outlet.
With iOS 6 beta 3 having just been seeded to developers, details within the changelog concerning the domain names of email addresses are are just beginning to become apparent, and those with a .me account should be aware that the transition to iCloud.com is now underway.
Before iCloud arrived along with iOS 5 last October, Apple offered a similar-ish service in the form of MobileMe. Like most of the Cupertino company’s pre-iCloud web ventures, it didn’t fare particularly well, leaving many Apple aficionados with a .me email address.
MobileMe, although relatively defunct for a while, was officially discontinued on June 30th, and now, those old addresses are being gradually phased out in favor of the newer iCloud.com service.
So, what could be cuter than toy-sized Apple gadgets? How about other toys using those wee gizmos? Artist and Instagram user @santlov has created an amazing series of photos that highlight that meme.
I won’t spoil the fun by showing a gallery of the images here, but if you can’t wait to see Sheriff Woody cleaning the screen of his iPad with window cleaner or reenacting the classic photo of Steve Jobs sitting in front of his iMac, click this link and enjoy.
By the way, Toy Story’s Sheriff Woody isn’t the only character Santlov has created — Jack Skellington, C3PO and Star Wars stormtroopers can also be seen enjoying the best of Cupertino.
