    Skype is an excellent way to keep in touch with your friends, co-workers and family especially if you're using it over WiFi or an unlimited data plan, resulting in free Skype-to-Skype calls. If you have the application installed on your iOS device, you might want to update to the latest version. Open up the iTunes App Store on your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or iPad and install the refresh. It brings a new feature: the ability to move own video preview when in a call. Additionally, the app now auto restarts if unexpectedly shut down, accessibility has been improved, same goes for ...

    Subsidized smartphone prices represent a deal struck between consumers and the carriers: you commit to use their wireless services for a prescribed period of time, and in turn get a nice chunk of change knocked-off the upfront price of your handset. Once that time's up, the idea is that your monthly service bills have offset the carrier's earlier investment, leaving the two of you square. At least, that's the way it's supposed to work, but not all carriers are happy to call things even and let you do what you want with your phone once your contract is fulfilled. AT&T's been one of the most ...

    Regardless if you are using a PC or a Mac, if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you occasionally need to use Apple's iTunes application to sync and update software (if you manage your libraries with something else). A new version of iTunes has been released and, as usual, it is always good to have the latest one installed. It "fixes several issues that may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, and syncing photos to devices". Additionally, it "addresses an issue where some iTunes interface elements are incorrectly described by VoiceOver and ...

    Apple's March 7th event is currently rolling and we thought you'd like to know that they've just confirmed the availability of iOS 5.1 to users starting today. It's kind of weird to see Apple roll the update without ever reaching a developer GM candidate, but after so many weeks in beta, it was about time. At the moment we've got details about Siri now being able to speak in Japanese to all iOS 5.1 customers. Sadly Apple's keynote didn't provide any additional details on what iOS 5.1 will bring. With so many battery life complaints on the iPhone 4S, this update most likely deals with ...

    Apple has a conference call scheduled for today, March 19, 2012 starting at 6:00AM PDT (9:00AM EDT) where Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, and Peter Oppenheimer, the company's CFO, will "announce the outcome of the Company's discussions concerning its cash balance". Apple has a lot of money; according to the last earning's report, somewhere around the $100 billion mark, but the Q4 report should give you more details in case you missed it. With the New iPad, upcoming exciting products like the new iPhone or even computers (desktop or notebook) as well as the incredible buzz around all things Apple, ...

    You are already probably familiar with the i4Siri project; at the end of last year we told you to keep your fingers crossed for a port if Siri is the only reason you'd consider purchasing an iPhone 4S (despite the improved camera and processor). If you're rocking an Apple iPad and want to use Siri, this might be a good chance to consider it, since Apple failed to bring the personal assistant to the New iPad (and iOS 5.1). In order to get it up and running you will first need to jailbreak your device (regardless if you're on an A4 or A5 device, regardless if you are running iOS 5.0.1 or iOS ...

Expect to see "the best hackers, developers and themers that the community has to offer" at the convention and make their findings and achievements public.

    Well after Apple's recently vague announcement of iOS 5.1, it's now available for your downloading pleasure. For a moment there, we thought that the only enhancement we'd get was Siri translating its own name in Japanese (which we don't recommend you Google for), but Apple has proved us wrong. iOS 5.1 includes some key fixes that many of us were waiting for with open arms. Out of the key changes: - The battery performance fixes for the iPhone 4S are probably the most anticipated - We can now delete photos all of those hidden photos you don't wish to share with the rest of your family ...

    So if you're on the list of people that cringed their teeth when they hit the Install button of the OTA upgrade of iOS 5.1 and forgot all about their Jailbreak, you might be in luck. The Dev-Team has just updated RedN0w to version 0.9.10b6 and it brings you the option of getting a tethered jailbreak of your device as long as it doesn't run on an A5 chip (Sorry iPhone 4S and iPad2 readers). There's nothing hot about a tethered jailbreak of any iOS device, but if you lost it by mistake, you're sadly out of of choices. Make sure you download the version of Redsn0w for either your Mac or PC ...

    Apple's recent release of iOS 5.1 is anything but surprising. It took very little spotlight at Tim Cook's recent Keynote, but that doesn't mean it isn't important. The update has a full list of the updates that current customers are looking for, like improved performance in battery life for the iPhone 4S and the ability to delete unwanted images from Photo Stream. Obviously, if you're enjoying all the benefits behind a Jailbreak, upgrading to iOS 5.1 can prove to threaten your freedom. If you're asking yourself if this update is worth your time and lock-down, have a look at our following ...

    At the beginning of February Motorola scored an important win against Apple in Germany. The German Mannheim Regional Court granted a permanent injunction against Apple's iCloud push email service (as well as the predecessor, MobileMe) and any devices that can access it. Now Apple has quietly published a support document acknowledging the situation: "Due to recent patent litigation by Motorola Mobility, iCloud and MobileMe users are currently unable to have iCloud and MobileMe email pushed to their iOS devices while located within the borders of Germany." Users of the service offerings in ...

    If you fire up iTunes on your iPhone, iPad or computer, you'll see that there is a brand new section inside the store called "Mastered for iTunes". This way Apple tries to deliver best possible audio quality encoded files for all those details inside the tunes. Audio files are delivered in iTunes Plus format which has a variable bit rate of 256 kbps for the AAC file format (compared to 128 kbps AAC files available in the early days). Publishers will be able to submit better quality recordings and the end user, regardless if we talk about your average listener or an audiophile, will benefit ...

    An iOS 5 bug allowed pictures to be displayed on a password-protected iPhone if the time on the device was set to an earlier time and date than the real timestamp of the pictures. A new security flaw has been discovered, this time on iOS 5.0.1, but it takes a very persistent villain several tries to get passed the lock screen. In theory, the password protected iPhone must have a missed call. Swiping the missed call notification in an area without network coverage, or by removing the SIM card from the phone, could expose, after several attempts, the entire Contact list together with ...
