image thumb11 GreenPoisOn Continues To Tease But Will Hacktivate Your iPhone 4 On The iOS 4.1

I got a couple of messages regarding why am I so bent at writing about GreenPoisOn and hacking the iPhone 4 on the iOS 4.1? Primarily because it is the talk of the developer community and without a doubt the most anticipated. We are still unaware of when is this coming out for everyone, but tweets from the hack gurus state that it is coming. Some day, finally.

The latest addition to the series of updates include that the GreenPoisOn will not just jailbreak your iPhone but also hacktivate it. Which means you will be able to bypass the iTunes activation without loading your phone with a SIM card. This adds more expectations and makes this tool a must have for all those who can’t live with their typical, limited edition of the Apple iPhone [by that I mean you can’t run a huge number of apps outside the dimensions of the App Store].

I bet many folks around us have this urge to see a naked picture or at least come across one randomly. Let me be honest, it happens a lot of times with me when I search for relevant pictures for blog posts. While those minimalist pictures have been taken with the subjects explicitly required to be in those outfit [or without them]. But what about all those pictures in clothes, depicting decency? I mean there should be some way of adding some explicitness to these.

PayPal today made life easier, especially when it comes to making payments online. The e-commerce site today announced that it would accept deposits from users with their iPhone. Now that’s mobile payment in real and its dead simple.

What consumers can do is simply take a photograph of the check’s front and backside and submit the same. Your task is then done and PayPal would transfer the cash to your account. There is already an app that does it by the name of Square, but for every transaction you make it deducts 2.75 percent of the transaction. I am not sure as yet if the PayPal app would make any deductions.

image thumb18 Speed Test: iPhone 3G Running On iOS 4 And iOS 4.1

Performance is a top priority for any device and Apple has proven it beats many when it comes to the smartphone arena with its iPhone. I hate to say it being an Android fan but that’s the truth in many cases. Both the hardware and the software play an equally important role when it comes to the overall performance of the device. Apple released the iOS 4.1 with promises from Steve Jobs that the latest version would resolve many issues, primarily for the iPhone 3G users running on the iOS4.

Putting the software part to test, Lifehacker [thanks] shared a video on performance of the the iPhone 3G on the iOS 4 and the iOS 4.1 comparison. The video doesn’t really show a massive difference in performance but it some cases the difference is significant, especially when loading the maps. On others, like Photos, browsing on Safari, the speed difference is marginal and not really that great to make you drool over update. The winning feature with the iOS 4.1 is definitely going to be the fixes for other issues that many iPhone 3G users have complained about.
