Browser App to Deliver Flash to iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch

Steve Jobs has successfully prevented Adobe Flash from getting on the iPhone for years, but a new iOS app promises to bring Flash video to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch without upsetting the CEO.

Demonstrated below, Skyfire is a web browser that automatically transcodes Flash video into HTML5 so it can display on your iDevice (instead of the blue Lego block symbolizing a lack of Flash support).

Newsweek for iPad now has in-app subscriptions

Newsweek for iPad

Newsweek has released an iPad application that has a major differentiating factor compared to other magazines’ iPad editions: in-app subscriptions. While the app itself is free to download, reading Newsweek issues inside it isn’t. The price for one issue is $2.99, a three-month subscription goes for $9.99 and a six-month subscription will set you back $14.99. Users of the iPad app will get access to new issues two days before their release on newsstands and the purchases are made inside the app itself. Continue reading

FCC: Spectrum could be worth $120 billion due to “iPad boom”

The FCC late Thursday put out a forecast (PDF) for the wireless future that pointed to spectrum auctions being much more expensive in the future. The US agency expected 3G and 4G data to surge 35 times higher in the next five years and need another 300MHz of spectrum that would cost $120 billion. The value is more than twice as much as what was paid for extra frequency access in 2008. Continue reading

Download Greenpoison iOS 4.1 Jailbreak For iPhone 4 / 3GS

Geohot released Limera1n just two days back on 10/10/10 spoiling the hard work of Chronic dev team. The team was heartbroken and left with two choices, either use the SHAtter bootrom exploit and implement Geohot’s bootrom exploit which was used in Limera1n, or go ahead and burn two bootrom exploits at once by releasing GreenPoison.

 

Burning two bootrom exploits at once means Apple will patch them quickly, thus slowing down future jailbreaks. So the team went with the decision to implement SHAtter bootom exploit instead. Today Greenpoison is out with this exploit which jailbreaks the following devices:

  • iPhone 4 / iPhone 3GS
  • iPod Touch 4G / iPod Touch 3G
  • iPad

As of now only Windows version of Greenpois0n is available. Mac version will be out soon.

When Research in Motion introduced its PlayBook tablet Monday, it was diving into a market already dominated by Apple’s iPad.

Since the iPad started shipping in April, Apple has sold more than 3 million devices. In June, Dell introduced the Streak, a device billed as a tablet but priced like a phone. Samsung hopes to bring its tablet, the Galaxy Tab to market in time for holiday-season shopping. Continue reading
