It’s become pretty well known that if you’re wanting to theme your iPhone you just hop on Cydia and grab Winterboard Themes. With it being one of the best selling items in the Cydia store it’s safe to say that there’s hundreds of millions of iDevice users theming their products with it and that has created quite a large community in itself. Since the acquisition of Rock by Cydia, its more than likely that every theme you’ve bought has come through Cydia, unless of course you donated to a designer.

With the excitement over the release of the Verizon iPhone 4 growing everyday, there’s still one question that’s putting a damper on the excitement. “Will the current jailbreak tools that are available work on the new iPhone?”, this is the million dollar question. With every release of a new update for the iOS we can count on the fact that The iPhone Dev Team will release at jailbreak for it. But the new iDevice may present a bigger challenge than originally expected.

We saw on Wednesday the release of iOS 4.3 beta to developers. This release has proved to be almost rock-solid proof that the next-gen iPad will have a camera or it’s very likely it will have 2, one in front and one in back. When developers got their hands on the beta they began digging and it didn’t take long before they found photo evidence that shows there might be plans for a camera on the iPad 2 which looks to be released some time in the first half of this year.
The image causing the uproar was found in the beta and titled ‘homeScreenOverlayFaceTime~ipad.png’ that according to More >
As everyone expected, the Xbox Kinect has been a huge success. And of course as with any new gadget, especially with the all the potential of the Kinect, we’re seeing tons of users coming out with all types of cool innovations. The peripheral has even been used to help in surgery and help you with your work-out routine. Microsoft wasn’t too happy with the idea of people hacking their new system at first but now they seem to be quite keen on the idea, probably from all the free media coverage they’re seeing. And now Microsoft is supporting the idea, so much so that they hinted at releasing More >
With the big reveal of the $249.99 price tag, the Nintendo 3DS is finally official, now there’s only one question left, how much will the games cost? A total of 30+ titles have been announced to hit shelves coming to us all the way up to the time of E3. Even though the company has given us quite a lot of info on the games themselves, they are remaining pretty silent about which games will be “launch titles”. Hush-hush is also Nintendo’s stance on revealing the price of the titles. But it wasn’t too difficult to get a pretty good idea of a price range we’ll see.
Currently in the US, we’re More >
Microsoft is bringing back a feature it had previously taken out and though it’s a small change it’s expected to have a big effect. In this dashboard update we’re seeing the return of the “Boot-to-Disc” option which is making a come back for one reason, to stop pirating on the Xbox 360. And from the reaction of forum members it looks as though Microsoft is having success so far.
“Anti-Piracy 2.5 update” is what the update has officially become known as. With this update Xbox 360 owners who have flashed the firmware will no longer be able to load bootleg titles on to the console. And if More >
“Start the new year off strong” is a phrase we’re all familiar with and Apple seems to be taking those words to heart after the reveal of their earnings for Q1 2011. With Q4 2010 being the best revenue quarter ever for Apple ($20.34 billion) it was projected that the company would come in around $23 billion for this quarter but as it turns out, Apple only SURPASSED those projections by $3 billion dollars when they reported $26.74 billion for Q1 2011.
Breaking down the earnings for Apple, we see that iOS and in particular the iPhone to be leading the way for Apple’s record-breaking quarter. More >
This years Pwn2Own conference is shaping up to be rather interesting with the news of a new method of unlocking the iPhone baseband. Normally the unlocking of an iPhone wouldn’t be news enough to cause this kind of attention but this method is different. Ralf Philipp Weinmann, a research associate at the University of Luxembourg, will be discussing a gaping hole in security of the firmware used in baseband iPhone and Android devices. As of right now there’s no news of an ETA on a deployable iPhone unlock or if it’s connected in any way to this exploit.

After Apple’s decision to discontinue its Xserve line at the end of January (a move which upset many current users of the product), a new rumor is reporting that Apple may be discontinuing other server focused products in the relatively near future. Reports from multiple sources are stating that Apple will be following the end of XServe by scrapping both Final Cut Server and XSan, even more interestingly, the Mac OS X Lion Server will be the last of Apple’s server operating systems. Hardmac, who first broke the story wrote that Apple’s management is currently considering whether to More >
A recent report from a Japanese blog by the name of Macotakara states that according to their sources, Apple is toying with the idea of adding glass free 3D technology to the next generation of it’s iPod Touch. The iPod Touch would be a direct pocket-gaming competitor to Nintendo’s upcoming 3DS portable gaming console. This report comes after a multitude of 3D related patents that Apple has granted over the past few years. MacStories, discussing the report, wrote that Apple would be integrating the 3D technology “without any external peripheral or accessory.”
It seems that the 3D screens More >
