jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch…no*

TUAW is reporting that SprintJB has jailbroken the latest version of the iPhone and iPad’s OS.  Yes no * here.  Well it doesn’t seem like it was all that hard after all.

I’ll give AT&T a month or so to offer Bluetooth tethering…then I’m break’in out.

Hey Gizmodo…

Next time just pay the dude $5,000 for pictures and the ability to see, touch and tear apart the device. Don’t actually purchase it…rookies.

When will we see Gray Powell again?

image from Facebook

When do think we will all see Gray Powell again?  Here at the PocketUp nerve center Powell marketing ideas have been flying around all last week.

For those of you just waking from coma, Gray Powell work for Apple.  He left the ex-top secret Gen 4 iPhone at a bar after tossing back a few brews.  You can see full story here.

Here’s a small list of how we think Gray could make the most of recent “fame”.  What would you do now, if you were Gray Powell?

  • Apple let’s him keynote the release event.  Using a “you started it, no finish it” theme.
  • He becomes the lead spokesman for StuffBack
  • Budlight…we could spend all day rolling those ideas
  • He gets promoted to Apple’s head of MobileMe, touting it’s remote wipe feature
  • Windows Mobile hires him to “lose” one of their new creations

SlingPlayer for the iPhone on 3G

Since making the switch from Windows Mobile and Blackberry to the iPhone I thought not having access to my Slingbox would be my biggest issue.  When SlingMedia started their iPhone application development I was excited.  I mean this would be ideal.

About 18 months ago my 1st gen Slingbox took a dive, power supply I thought.  I tried reviving it with another power supply, but no luck.  So I just tossed the unit onto my growing pile of old, out dated, powered plastic.

This morning however my ears perked up.  Slingbox’s iPhone application has now been approved for 3g.  The original iPhone application on used Wifi.  Having 3G may have just changed my tune on watching live TV in my iPhone.  Maybe it’s time to invest in a new Slingbox?

PocketInformant | an App I thought I would never use again

PocketInformant use to be just a PocketPC app.  Back in “the day” I bought my share of Pocket PC apps.  Hearing about PocketInformant getting released for the iPhone takes me back to the days when we talked sleds/sleeves, iPaqs, Compact Flash, the Jornada, or even when Casio played the PDA game.

Not sure I need PocketInformant, but here some video coverage at MacWorld.

MacBookPro and the Core I(5,7)

Will someone important please call Apple and tell them to release the MacBookPros with the Core I processors?  I really WANT a new one.  My dual core 2.4ghz 4 year old unit is working just fine.  It’s really just a matter of want.  So someone pick up the phone, ringy dingy…

Linux has fanboys?  I found this amusing

Forum Is Up

I’ve always been excited about new solutions.  Since I’m a huge WordPress guy I was glad to come across Simple:Press.  Now I know this site doesn’t really need a forum, but a group I belong to needs a forum for some planning.

A few friends from another Denver Handheld User Group is wanting to branch off and start a new group.  The current group has been dominated by a few individuals which is not going helping others.  The group use to help each other no matter what platform, Apple, Windows, Droid, Blackberry, Palm.   The group has suddenly turned into an instruction session by one of the members.  The “teaching” is very one-sided.  I understand we all have opinions, some very strong.  A social group that meets on a Saturday morning is not the place for name calling and device bashing.  Seriously it’s a phone, an operating system, an application.

The new group is in the process of forming.  I hope we can meet in the Denver Tech Center once a month.  The plan is to have format that we stick with every meeting.  Facilitators will be chosen by the group two months ahead of time.  That persons job is just to keep everyone on schedule and to keep the conversation from being dominated.  As for other info, that’s about it so far.  Please check out the forum that has been dedicated to this group.

editing…

I’m dong some maintenance, theme editing and even adding a forum this weekend(1/30-31/10).  Bare with me while I get things better than normal.

I am also growing unhappy with the local Mobile User Group I have been attending.  A few members and I have been tossing around the idea of a starting a new group.  If you’re in Denver and would like to be apart post up in the comment section and I’ll make sure to get you the meeting information.

8-2008 psychic moment is coming true

According to Gizmodo today

According to me over a year ago

Finally one of my Apple product psychic moments is coming true.  Now if they’ll release a MacMini with Blu-Ray, I’ll be batting a thousand.  Oh wait…I also think they will soon turn the MacMini into a gaming console to run downloaded, full sized games from the app store.

Apple Magic Mouse

Fry’s in Las Vegas has the new Apple Magic Mouse in stock.  I picked up three.

XRoad’s G-Map Pulled from iTunes App Store

smallxroadWent over to iTunes to pick up G-Map.  Looks like it has been pulled.  I’m not sure when it happened.  Anyone know?

picture-21

G-Map is an iPhone app that load all the maps in the West and or East, $20 a coast.  This is a great option for those of you traveling through areas where cell coverage is limited.  As most of you know the iPhone’s Google Map feature only works when the phone can reach the online maps.
