Android has been pretty weak in the multimedia department when it
first got released, having almost no audio and video codecs besides the
basic ones and no good media player apps on the marketplace. That posed
quite a problem for a young OS that was meant for the mass market.
But fortunately, things started changing once the operating system became more mainstream. More and more developers started working on apps for the users, and of course, multimedia was a big requirement for them. That’s why now, almost 2 years later, we have a lot of great media players, both for music and video, on the Android marketplace. There are actually about a hundred such apps, but most of them failed to get any traction.
Stock Android Music Player
The stock Android music player is the most used player for Android – for obvious reasons. It’s not very good though, but it does get the job done. Google has integrated the most popular codecs and formats into it, so you can play aac, mp3, wma, wav files without a hitch, but you won’t be able to play some of the more exotic formats, like flac. The interface is simple and practical –big buttons and text made for touch screens, which are very easy to see and press. If you don’t need some of the more advanced features, this is a pretty good player.

he latest update of ultrasn0w unlock was released a couple of days back by the iPhone-Dev team which supports unlocking any iPhone 3G / 3GS on iOS 4.2.1. However to achieve the unlock with ultrasn0w 1.2, your device must be on 06.15.00 baseband for which an
unlock edition of PwnageTool 4.1.3 has been released that can update
the baseband of iPhone 3G / 3GS running iOS 4.2.1 to 06.15.00 allowing
the new ultrasn0w 1.2 to work.
To make things easier, follow our step-by-step guide below to update your iPhone’s baseband and jailbreak it on iOS 4.2.1 with PwnageTool 4.1.3. After this you can easily unlock your iPhone 3G / 3GS with ultrasn0w 1.2.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU PROCEED!
Your baseband will be updated to 06.15.00 during the process (as 05.14 or 05.15 are not supported by the new ultrasn0w 1.2). Proceed only if you need the unlock. For only jailbreaking your iPhone 3G / 3GS which does not require carrier unlock, follow this guide. Also:
1. There is no way to come back down from 06.15, and there’s no hiding the baseband version from Apple. You’ll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way.
2. If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won’t be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn’t update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway).
3. Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won’t ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail). You’ll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you’re unlocker you should already be doing that).

If you own an iPod touch 4G, you would already know that the camera cannot take widescreen 720p photos. With a tweak called HD Photographer
available in Cydia, you can now enable widescreen photos using the
built-in camera app on the iPod touch 4G. This adds more pixels to the
photos you take but at the price of losing the default 4:3 aspect ratio.
Technically, this tweak increases the iPod touch 4G’s rear camera from
0.7 megapixels (960×720) to 1.0 megapixels (1280×720).
The app is activated automatically when you install it, so there is no icon but there is a toggle in the camera app that lets you turn HD Photographer on and off.
Limneos Elias, a leading developer of unique views Cydia, famous for having created the first and only tweak that lets you rotate the iPhone SpringBoard as it does on the iPad or SBRotator , and many other useful programs, has just released ScrollingBoard, a new tweak that allows for unlimited and icons in folders in the dock.And not only.
As the more experienced of you know, currently there are several tweaks that allow you to obtain these functions separately.We quote InfiniFolders FolderEnancher for folders and unlimited on iOS 4 and Infinidock for unlimited icons in the dock. With ScrollingBoard, however, you can get both of these functions only when you buy a package from Cydia.
SpeedClock is a new app available in the app store that turns your iPhone into radar gun. Even though SpeedClock
may be a useful tool, there could also be an accuracy issue in the app
because of the estimation of distance the user must estimate. There is
also possibly a greater accuracy issue for the iPhone 3GS becuase it
doesnt have the gyroscope feature like the 4th Generation iDevices.
Despite SpeedClock's accuracy issue, in time it is probably going to improve and expand on it's goal. Here is the information from the developers of SpeedClock gave us from the press conference:
Employing the device’s three-axis gyro and basic trigonometry establishes distance. Speed and laps are measured using the motion sensing of the video camera, timing the interval between the object entering and leaving the frame. The app is compatible with iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, and iPod touch 4.Speed Clock also has many other features including a speedometer, a timer, and a distance tool. The speedometer feature is basically meaasuring the speed of a moving object. It basically uses the camera to capture the speed of the moving object. Fortunately, this app comes with settings to set what speed to record it in and also the sensitivity according to your surroundings which improves the accuracy.

Pretty much since the launch of the iPhone in 2007, users have wanted to create photo albums on their iPhone. iPhoto on the Mac lets you easily do it, various windows photo software lets you do it, so why not on iPhone?
Currently, the only official way to create and manage photo albums on your iDevice is to manage those albums on your PC or Mac and then sync via iTunes. Well, there is good news!
For those who own a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch, a new Cydia tweak called ‘PhotoAlbums+’ lets users manage and create photo albums right in the iPhone or iPod photo app!

Slider cases were at the center of the recent controversy surrounding cracked and shattered glass rear panels on iPhone 4s. Hard Candy’s Tim Hickman claimed
the whole thing wasn’t a problem, saying that his company had shipped
more than 20,000 cases and hadn’t had a single related complaint. He
added that if there was a problem, he’d have heard about it by now.
Gumdrop is an offshoot of Hard Candy, so it’s likely that Mr. Hickman
was including the Surf Slider in his statement.
Available in red, blue, smoke or the frosted look that you see here; the Surf Slider splits into two, three-quarters of the way down the case. Inside there are four rubber pads which securely hold the iPhone 4 in place, and despite their compression, would allow some grit to come in contact with the phone itself. Our solution? Clean the iPhone 4 and the inside of the case with a cloth before fitting it.
Remember when Oliver Kreylos impressed and shocked us by showing that a single Microsoft Kinect could create some remarkably stout 3D video?
He's back at it again, this time blowing minds and demonstrating that
two Kinects can be paired and their output meshed -- one basically
filling in the gaps of the other.
He found that the two do create some interference, the dotted IR pattern of one causing some holes and blotches in the other, but when the two are combined they basically help each other out and the results are quite impressive.

1. Apple iBooks 1.1.2
Apple’s iBooks isn’t just an e-book reader; it’s also an excellent PDF reader.

http://www.ithinkdiff.com/breaking-download-ultrasn0w-unlock-ios-421-iphone-3g-3gs-guide/As promised, the iPhone Dev-Team has released the necessary carrier unlocking tools which can unlock the latest iOS 4.2.1 firmware on iPhone 3GS and 3G on basebands later than 05.13.04. Since iPhone 4 has different baseband OS, It’ll take a little while longer for the Dev Team to unlock on it on the latest firmware.
From the iPhone Dev Team Blog:
Today we’re pleased to announce our free carrier unlock for iPhone3G/3GS owners with a baseband later than 05.13.04. The unlock for that baseband exploited the AT+XAPP command, thanks to a crash initially discovered by @sherif_hashim (@Oranav also found this crash). So what hole are we exploiting today, since Apple closed that AT+XAPP hole? Well, we’re exploiting the exact same hole!

It took me a while, but I'm starting to fall in love with my iPad in a
way I haven't loved a gadget for a long while. There's something about
the form factor, the apps, the OS that feels just right and
makes me want to do as much of my daily computing on it as possible. Of
course, that's still a pretty small sliver of my overall day, and the
iPad isn't even close to replacing my laptop for the large majority of
my work, but I'm finding myself increasingly doing casual browsing,
casual gaming, serious writing, and, yes, even some reading on Apple's
But I have one "big" problem with the tablet that doesn't look like it'll be solved anytime soon: it's not 7 inches. Will Apple ever eat its words and build a smaller iPad, or will the 7-inch form factor be left to the rest of the emerging tablet market to fight over?

What’s that? You have an iPhone!? I’m suddenly more attracted to you.
Let’s talk about your apps, baby. Show me your games. Oh, this is a
little embarrassing. What’s with all the mini games? I thought you were
hardcore. It’s over. I hate you.
Okay, I don’t really hate you. I just have to get you back on the right track. We need to get some more hardcore titles running on that sleek cellular of yours.

I’ve found some of the best iPhone games the App Store can offer, just for you. And the best bit? They’ll even work when your signal doesn’t.

If you've yet to upgrade your iPad to iOS 4.2.1, and you're
head-over-heels with your orientation lock, you've got two options:
upgrade and lose that functionality altogether, or upgrade / jailbreak
and get it back. Naturally, we'd recommend the latter. In what can only
be described as "so typically Apple," the software engineers at
Cupertino figured that they'd convert the perfectly acceptable
orientation lock switch into a mute switch.
We lamented this fact in our review of the update, but rather than Apple creating (non-fiddly) alternatives within its software, we're left to look for a solution in the jailbreaker's app store.

We all enjoyed iOS 4.2.1 on our iOS devices: it brings multitasking for iPad, folder, AirPlay (sort of) and wirelessly iOS printing which is called AirPrint. But AirPrint is currently on Mac OS X only and works with some HP-printers. Mac users can use Printopia to enable AirPrint for non-compatible printers. Windows users can do the same now!
For Windows users who want AirPrint to work with their computer there is a new tool works on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows called ‘AirPrint Activator.’

that. It’s what would happen if the film 300 were turned into a video
game. A good video game, that is. Which means it plays a lot like a
touch screen God of War.
There’s a story here, and it takes place directly after the first game. After making his way through hell, musclebound main character Argos returns to Sparta in hopes of finally getting a little rest. But Hades has other ideas. The god decides to make life rough for Argos by filling up Sparta with all kinds of monsters. There are cut-scenes to watch and overwrought dialog to listen to, but really it’s all just an excuse to swing a big sword around. And that’s actually fine by us.
Acer has announced
their line of Tablets yesterday, one of them is 10.1 inch Android
Tablet, that may give hard time to Apple iPad. However, the shipping
date for Acer’s tablet is April, 2011 by which time we can expect an
iPad’s improvement by Apple. On screen size an resolution, Acer tablet
beats iPad by a little margin however the real deal is front facing HD
camera an 5 megapixel rear camera on Acer tablet.
Android 3.0 running on Nvidia Tegra II SOC (system on chip) makes Acer Tablet a real beast and super fast. Here’s a quick comparison between Apple iPad and Acer 10 inch Tablet.
MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has just tweeted that Ultrasn0w unlock is on it’s way and you’ll be free at last. The unlock for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS on baseband 05.14.02 (iOS 4.1) and baseband 05.15.04 (iOS 4.2.1) will be released this Sunday.
Good progress today…everything is on track for updated ultrasn0w by Sunday/Funday at the latest (longer for iPhone4!)
Admit it. You were waiting for a jailbreak for your WP7 Phone for the
sake of ‘freedom’ and whatever it is that gets you going through the day
with a phone that can run apps with access to private APIs. Rafael
Rivera, Long Zheng and Chris Walsh have come up with ChevronWP7 which lets you unleash the potential of your Windows Phone 7 phone.
According to the creators, expect issues with the app since it’s v1.0. Also, the download link seems to be missing so far [Microsoft interference, perhaps?], but as soon as it’s up, we’ll let you know.
First off, 2Player is extremely easy to use and requires almost no upfront setup (no software download required, like that for Gmote). The app enables you to play music, a podcast, or other media file on any networked device
(DLNA/UPnP supported) around you (e.g. laptop, Xbox360, Playstation 3,
DLNA enabled HDTVs). Even better, you also have the ability to play from
those devices as well.
A very descriptive example of 2Player’s versatility was provided straight from the developer. “Imagine the following sorts of scenarios. You come home from work; you’re listening to an interesting podcast on your car stereo, played from phone via bluetooth. As you walk in the door, 2player detects your Wi-Fi network, and continues where you left off, playing on your stereo system, connected to your TV. Later on, you put on a little jazz (served up by Windows 7 from your iTunes music collection), and transfer that (using your phone) onto the WD TV Live plus device in your dining room. Music everywhere; with your phone at the center of it all acting as remote control and traffic director, and serving or playing as required.”
Similar to folders on the iOS homepage, iBooks will soon be update with
“Collections” – the ability to group together your ‘visual media’.
You’ll have the ability to name the collection what you like for easy
access. Collections can be of either books or PDFs.
Further enhancements apparently will include the ability to email PDFs and to printthem via AirPrint. Apple has made quite clear that printing and emailing of iBooks will not be happening. Oh well – it would be great to share iBooks with a family or friend via email.
Apple’s own documentation reads:
Create, rename, or delete a collection: Tap Collections to display the collections list. Tap New to add a new collection. To delete a collection tap Edit, then tap and tap Delete. You can’t edit or remove the built-in Books and PDFs collections. To edit the name of a collection, tap its name. When you finish, tap Done.
