As we are all aware, the Apple iPhone will soon arrive the UK, November 9th to be precise. However I just thought I would post this photo of an iPhone poster being put up by one of the O2 staffs as I was just walking past yesterday…
“The wait is almost over.“
The Wired Magazine has published an article which summarises everything that have been happening to the Apple iPhone so far, well mostly hacking wise. With a timeline of the events that have taken place and also relevant links to the source of these, you can view this article to catch up on what you’ve missed. If you’re interested in this spotlight news you might want to bookmark it, because we’re sure the battle between Apple and the hackers haven’t quite finished yet and this post would definitely be a good source to keep yourself up to date.

The iPhone is once again free! Following the not so hopeful jailbreak for iPhone v1.1.1 yesterday by a non-Dev Team (possibly called the ‘Elite’ iPhone Team), we now have one that does a much better job of breaking free the Apple iPhone firmware v1.1.1.
However, before I go on to summarise this new v1.1.1 unlocking method
there is one bad news… this new hack is not applicable to those who used anySIM or iUnlock to unlock your iphone, if you do use it, it will brick your iPhone! (<–See update at the bottom) For everyone who used hacks like TurboSIM, IPSF Paid solution, etc… you will be able to use it.
The screenshot above shows exactly what we in the UK have been waiting for, the Sony Ericsson K850i! Indeed it does say ‘out of stock’, but actually, it hasn’t even launched nor has it arrived the shops yet, the SE K850i is only available on pre-order at the moment. Just as we had expected in one of our previous posts on latest uk mobile arrivals, it’s about time the K850i status got updated.
Based on the limited information on pricing, we can see the much awaited for Sony Ericsson K850i, in other words, the first SE 5-megapixel phone does not come at a cheap price, read on to find out the pricing…
Have a look at what someone (presumably an Apple fan) decided to do with their Apple G4 tower after it failed to be of anymore use at their computer desk. It is definitely more useful now
The battle between Apple and hackers continue, while the hackers have now come up with a way to downgrade your iPhone back to 1.0.2. It isn’t all all too bright, this new hack doesn’t help you ‘re-unlock’ your iPhone, which means those who have got their phones unlocked and upgraded to v1.1.1 will still need to be activated by the appropriate sims… Nevertheless this hack does partly bring your phone back to life by allowing it to use third-party applications and yes WiFi too We’ll definitely keep you updated with the latest news on this spotlight issue, as for now check out a demonstration video after the break to see how to get your iPhone apps working again.
