In Tel Aviv's wholesale fashion headquarters, where textile merchants follow in the legacy of fathers and grandfathers, many Israelis are looking for the latest in tech fashion: the iPhone.
It's at Z-Tov Ltd. that consumers shop for the latest models of Samsung, Philips and Motorola. The local mobile phone chain even carries the 8GB and 16GB models of the highly coveted iPhone.
Zibri, the Italian programmer of the now famous ZiPhone unlocking tool for the existing 2G iPhone, has promised an unlock for the iPhone 2.0 firmware while explaining that the new firmware leaves out some much requested features.
ZiPhone, the iPhone unlocking tool by Zibri, is well known – or should be – by anyone with an iPhone they’ve already unlocked, or would like to.
With Apple’s self-imposed June deadline for a public iPhone OS 2.0 release looming, hackers are working hard to ensure that tools for unlocking (allowing it to operate with non-sanctioned wireless carriers) and jailbreaking (allowing full read/write filesystem access and installation of unofficial third-party applications) the device remain intact after the OS upgrade is released.
Following its performance and battery tests of an SSD-equipped MacBook Air, the highly technical hardware analysis publication AnandTech was propositioned to evaluate a stock 2.5GHz Penryn-based MacBook Pro upgraded with a 128GB Memoright MR25.1-128S SSD.
If you thought Apple's $999 upgrade price for the Air's 64GB SSD was steep, hold on to your seat. The Memoright drive was priced out at a whopping $3,819, which in itself provides one reason why the professional notebooks, which presently ship with a minimum of 200GB of hard disk space, have thus far been left out of the party.
The Unofficial Apple Weblog picked up on two interesting tidbits related to the Apple TV today. First up, the latest software update from Apple includes the ability to listen to internet radio streams. You'll need to connect your Apple TV to a computer with iTunes, and that computer will need to have some streams saved in a playlist.
