iPod touch 2010 packaging

When announced the Retina display packing, FaceTime rocking iPod touch 2010 model, we knew this thing was gonna be a hit. We’re currently hard at work on our iPod touch review, but in the meantime we’ve snapped a bunch of pics of what’s gotta be the best looking iPod touch to date. Seriously, this thing is thin to the point of ridiculousness. Obviously with the Retina display, the screen looks sharp, and you also gain camera on both the front and back of the unit. Take a gander at the gallery.

Apple says iPod touch outsells Sony and Nintendo combined. What?

Posted by John Kilhefner Categories: Apple, Handhelds, Video Games

iPhone Gaming

Looks as if is gunning for a spot in the gaming realm, or rather has already sliced out their piece of the pie. Sony previously attacked Apple during a PSP commercial where “Marcus” told a kid playing games on an iPhone that it was made for “texting your grandmother” and not for “big boy” games. Steve Jobs retaliated earlier today at the company by revealing that both Nintendo and Sony’s portable systems are under the sales of the alone, and that over 1.5 billion “games and entertainment” apps have been downloaded, big boy games or not.

However, the Nintendo DS reportedly sold 132 million units world wide, while Apple is tracked at 120 million iOS units sold according to their July report. Is Apple trying to pull the wool over gamers eyes, or do they really have the numbers to back up their bold claim? We’re looking into it, as a bit of clarification seems to be in order.

iPhone hacker comex publishes JailbreakMe exploit code

JailbreakMe exploit source code

So you know that JailbreakMe site that let’s you jailbreak your iOS device? Well, Apple published an iPhone and iPad update today to plug that hole, and right after, iPhone hacker “comex” published the source code of the JailbreakMe site. Why is this relevant? Well, now any would-be evildoer has access to that exploit and can thusly infect any pre-iOS 4.0.2 device using the same exploit. So you have two options here if you want to stay safe. You can update to 4.0.2, or if you want to stay jailbroken, download the PDF Warning tool. One interesting thing in all this is that if you are running the original iPhone or iPod touch, Apple doesn’t have a fix for you. So you are essentially stuck with a vulnerable device unless you jailbreak it. How’s that for backwards?
