Easy iPhone jailbreak

Culture
IT'S MONDAY, AUGUST 2ND, 2010. I'M JEFF BAKALAR, AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. WITH THE NEWS LAST WEEK THAT JAILBREAKING YOUR IPHONE IS NOW LEGAL, A HACKER FROM THE IPHONE DEV TEAM HAS RELEASED THE EASIEST JAILBREAK EVER FOR ALL IPHONES. VISITING JAILBREAKME.COM BRINGS YOU TO A SCREEN, WHERE YOU CAN SIMPLY SLIDE YOUR FINGER TO JAILBREAK YOUR PHONE. IN THE PAST, USERS HAD TO TETHER THEIR PHONES TO A COMPUTER. EARLY REPORTS SAY IT WORKS FOR ALL VERSIONS OF THE IPHONE, BUT AS WITH ANY HACK, THIS MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE, SO BE WARNED. IN OTHER SMARTPHONE NEWS, MICROSOFT'S COO KEVIN TURNER, WINDOWS PHONE 7 DEVICES WILL SHIP IN EUROPE IN OCTOBER FIRST AND THEN IN THE U.S. IN NOVEMBER. NO WORD YET ON WHICH PHONES WILL BE LAUNCHING FIRST, BUT EXPECT THE LATEST REVIEWS HERE ON CNET.COM. IN MORE 3D NEWS, A COMPANY CALLED DXG HAS A 3D WEBCAM THAT WILL SET YOU BACK JUST $600 DOLLARS. THE HANDHELD CAMERA HAS DUAL VGA LENSES BUT ALSO COMES PACKAGED WITH A 7-INCH 800X480 3D SCREEN THAT DON'T REQUIRE GLASSES. THE POCKET CAMCORDER COMES WITH 128 MB OF STORAGE, SUPPORTS UP TO 16 GB OF EXPANSION, HDMI AND 4X DIGITAL ZOOM. BLOOMBERG IS REPORTING THAT AT&T, VERIZON AND POSSIBLY DEUSTSCHE TELEKOM ARE TEAMING UP TO TAKE ON VISA AND MASTER-CARD IN NEW CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS SYSTEMS. THE PLAN TO TEST MOBILE PAYMENT SYSTEMS WITH USERS' SMARTPHONES. DISCOVER WOULD HANDLE THE PAYMENTS AND U.K.'S BARCLAYS WOULD MANAGE USER ACCOUNTS. NO WORD YET ON WHEN THIS WILL ACTUALLY HAPPEN. FINALLY, YOU MAY START TO NOTICE SOME APPLE-LIKE TABLES IN YOUR NEXT VISIT TO BARNES & NOBLE STORES. THE COMPANY IS TESTING THOUSAND-SQUARE FOOT BOUTIQUES THAT DEMO THEIR NOOOK E-READER DEVICES ALONG WITH THEIR TRENDY ACCESSORIES. THE COMPANY HOPES TO UTILIZE THEIR PHYSICAL STORES OVER AMAZON'S KINDLE E-READER. THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I'M JEFF BAKALAR FOR CNET.COM, AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
