FaceTime App for iPad Gets Leaked by Apple?

No comments:



It looks like the FaceTime App released in iOS 4.3 beta 1 actually contains support for the iPad.

iPaDevice reader DjBeppee has figured out how to decrypt the files and get it running on the first generation iPad.

The app looks somewhat similar to the FaceTime application for Mac OS X. Check it out in the video and screenshots below.

WSJ: Apple Has Started Production of the iPad 2

No comments:



The WSJ is reporting that Apple has started manufacturing the iPad 2 with a built-in camera and faster processor.

The new iPad will be thinner and lighter than the first model, these people said. It will have at least one camera on the front of the device for features like video-conferencing, but the resolution of the display will be similar to the first iPad, these people said. It will also have more memory and a more powerful graphics processor, they said.

The report notes that the iPad will initially be available through Verizon and AT&T but not Sprint or T-Mobile.

A recent iLounge article hints that the iPad 2 could get a Carbon Fiber body, that Apple is working on RFID/NFC accessories, and that a 7-inch iPad is still being tested.

Sony Demands YouTube Reveal Personal Info From PS3 Jailbreak Video

No comments:



Sony is demanding that YouTube surrender the personal information of those who viewed Geohot's PS3 jailbreak video on a private page, according to Wired.

The company is demanding that a federal judge order Google to surrender the IP addresses and other identifying information (.pdf) of those who have viewed or commented about the jailbreak video on a private YouTube page. The game maker is also demanding that Twitter provide the identities of a host of hackers who first unveiled a limited version of the hack in December. A hearing is tentatively set for Wednesday. Sony filed its documents about 7:30 p.m. PST on Friday.

In what has widely been described as an outrageous and frightening case, Sony has sued Geohot for jailbreaking the PS3. The Electronic Frontier Foundation notes that Sony claims it has rights in the computer it sells you even after you buy it, and therefore can decide whether your tinkering with that computer is legal or not. The U.S. Copyright Office has exempted cell phone jailbreaking from being covered by the DMCA; however, the PS3 and other gaming consoles have yet to be exempted.

Geohot has recently posted a Motion to Dismiss which is set for hearing on March 11th.

Do iPod Classic Shortages Mean Discontinuation or Update?

No comments:



The iPod Classic is listed as being backordered or out of stock at many retailers leading to speculation that it might be discontinued or updated in the near future, according to AppleBitch.

The Apple Store shows that the silver iPod Classic now ships in 1-3 days, down from 24 hours last week. In addition, Best Buy has updated their website to say that the device is backordered for 1-2 weeks (last week it was shipped in 1 day) and Target also has it backordered for 2-4 weeks. Amazon.com shipping times are 2-4 weeks, Apple Reseller J & R are completely out of stock. Currently the shortage only seems to be affecting the silver colored model, the dark colored version appears relatively unaffected.

Last month Toshiba introduced a new 1.8-inch hard drive that could be used to bump the iPod Classic's capacity to 220GB from 160GB. It's unclear if these shortages are in advance of an update or if Apple has decided to discontinue the device. The iPod Classic did not receive an update in September alongside the rest of the iPod lineup.
