Today, the Dev-Team announced that there will not be a jailbreak coming for iOS 3.2.2.

With the Jailbreakme.com being one of the most successful and easiest jailbreak methods ever to jailbreak iOS 3.2.1 and earlier, Apple quickly closed that hole with iOS 3.2.2.

If you have updated to iOS 3.2.2 or received a new iPad with iOS 3.2.2, there is no official jailbreak method at this time.

Since Apple only released iOS 3.2.2 … Read More

The iPad Plays Music Too!

by on August 25, 2010

Between my oily fingers and my toddler’s obsession with Plants vs. Zombies, I’d all but given up on ever having a clean iPad screen again.

Apple Shuts Down Quattro Ad Network – It’s a Really Bad Idea

Apple announced last week that they will begin to slow down their Quattro mobile ad network for an eventual shutdown on September 30th. In doing so, they will also shift their entire focus onto their iAd platform, where they will make money. Hopefully, a lot of money.

Review: The Globe and Mail App for iPad

If you’re anything like me in the morning you roll over, unplug your iPad from the charger and see what’s happening in the world.
