Update (231108): iPhone firmware 2.2 now out, jailbreak (both 2G and 3G) and unlock (for 2G) instructions are now available here…

As expected, the iPhone Dev Team has revealed a further update on their progress with unlocking the iPhone 3G and preparation from the coming iPhone firmware update version 2.2

Jailbreakers, in case you were wondering whether it you should update your jailbroken iPhone to 2.2 once Apple prompts you to do so in iTunes, here is what the iPhone Dev Team themselves said…

“Now for something a bit more serious, we’ve explained about Apple’s updates in the past and we’ve warned against the immediate installation of these updates without knowing what they do to your device.

This is indeed true of the iPhone 3G’s upcoming 2.2 release. Installing ‘2.2’ on the iPhone 3G could slow down your chances of a software unlock in the near future (should one be found and released), so when you see an update in iTunes await our instructions first!

Please don’t blindly install the update and then complain about it later ;-)”

While some of you may have just jailbroken / unlocked iPhone firmware 2.1, you may have heard that the next version, version 2.2 is coming out really soon. In fact this leaked news have been rumoring the whole of this week and most including myself believe so. According to many resources across the web, it will apparently be out next friday (November 21). In case you were wondering what’s in store for the new and upcoming iPhone 2.2 software update, here they are, as mentioned by iPhone Hellas:

  • New look for the Safari with the Google search bar now occupying its own space on the title bar
  • Add toggle On / Off to disable the text auto-correction
  • 461 Japanese emoji icons (only available in Japan)
  • Support for new languages.
  • The Line-in audio is activated and can be used through the headphone jack.
  • New features of Maps.app:
    • Google Street View
    • Google Transit information – Routes public transport
    • Walking directions
    • Location sharing
  • New features of the App Store:
    The sector ‘Categories’ now shows the icons of the applications instead of the list.
    In each page of the application has been added by a button ‘Tell A Friend’ & ‘Report A Problem’.
    Added the possibility of scoring the application when the user chooses to delete from the device
  • Direct downloading of podcasts from the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store

As you can see the list looks great and are all features that we will definitely appreciate, except, again there isn’t a copy and paste feature…

Nevertheless, the good news that we always look forward to in addition to the firmware update is the fact that the iPhone Dev Team have already mentioned that they probably won’t have any major issues hacking through firmware 2.2 as they have tested their software on its beta version. So jailbreakers, I don’t think we will need to wait too long to see a new jailbreak and unlock software update from the iPhone Dev Team after 2.2 has been officially released – hopefully rumors are correct and it will be released next friday!

We often feature some basic help for readers who have just started using their new Macs and can’t find their way around a completely new but simplier OS environment. This latest gadget from Belkin will in our opinion definitely make Macs even more attractive compared to Windows PCs because the Switch-to-Mac cable makes your file transferring process from Windows to Mac OS X as simple as… well just sitting there without doing anything, because it automatically does it all for you!

Belkin’s Switch-to-Mac cable helps you transfer not just files from your PC but also your original settings and preferences. Unlike existing products where you have to drag and drop specific files you want to transfer. The Switch-to-Mac cable has its own Migration Assistant which is compatible with Windows XP and Vista, it automatically moves your music, photos, files (and more!) and internet preferences the way you want it, this makes your transition from Windows PC to Mac OS X as trouble free as possible (not that anything ever goes wrong on Macs…).

The Switch-to-Mac cable is expected to be out soon at an affordable price of $50 USD.

If you’ve got some time with nothing to do on this Friday morning then I would suggest you take a look at this video. You might have seen it already somewhere else, but we’ve found it quite entertaining to watch it repeatedly! Sad I know, well if you haven’t seen it, it’s basically a neat collection of faces and combination (I believe it’s done by a French guy?). Enjoy!

Like the Apple iMac, HP TouchSmart or Sony’s VAIO JS Series, NEC is now launching its own range of all in one PCs, two of them in fact – PowerMate P4000 and P6000. As you will have guessed, the P4000 has a more minimalistic spec compared to the P6000, though their specs don’t actually make them the best in the game of all in one PCs, I suppose this does offer consumers more options over which ones would suit them the best. The 16-inch P4000 has a 1.9GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor, NVIDIA GeForce 9100M G integrated graphics chip, 1GBof RAM, and a 250GB hard drive. The 19-inch P6000 has a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, NVIDIA GeForce 9300 graphics card, 2GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive.

Vertu phones are well known to be used by the rich and the famous and rightly so this phone has the most elegant design I’ve seen for a long time. The gallery below you see below is of the new Vertu called the Signature S Design and I reckon if you own the original Signature then you will definitely like this new one even more!

The handset measures 130 x 42 x 13 mm and supports quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz) and dual-band 3G (850/2100MHz). The Signature S Design will also support Wi-Fi and bluetooth. Most importantly, with white gold, yellow gold or stainless steel to choose from, that OLED display will even look more stunning!
