  1. Mimics Delight - Jailbreakme.com Released

    by , 07-07-2011 at 01:17 PM

    Yesterday marks the release of the 3rd 'userland' jailbreak for the iOS family. A userland jailbreak allows an iOS user to install Cydia (the hack app store) by simply visiting jailbreakme.com. So all those awaiting your pre-sale Mimics can get ready for your install by just visiting that link and downloading the "Mimics Driver" app from Cydia.

    This jailbreak is good for anyone using an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or iPad 2 running the latest 4.3.3 firmware. If you aren't on 4.3.3, feel free to update as normal in iTunes, even if you are already jailbroken and just wish to update. Note: you will want to back up your Cydia apps if you are upgrading from a previously jailbroken device. As always, backup your phone with iTunes before jailbreaking.

    Happy Jailbreaking.

    Sean Clark, from mp3Car, takes a look at the 2011 Ford Fiesta at the Ford booth at SEMA 2010 before the show starts. We find an iPad embedded in the dash, relocated HVAC controls, and relocated USB, AUX, and DC output jacks.

    This Fiesta also sports custom paint, tires, and some beautiful fabrication work, housing 12 inch subs and dual amplifiers.

    Mp3Car caught up with the car designer later to talk about some of the motivation behind the project and everything that went into the car. Stay tuned for more.

  4. iPad - System Wide Voice Control

    Ok so it's not true system wide access, but pretty darn close. Using a few apps, and a little jailbreak action, Justin Riley shows us how to control some basic functionality with just voice. Here we demonstrate adjusting the iPod, finding a place to eat, and even posting a tweet.

    Open your mind and imagine when iOS 4 comes out and vlingo can be backgrounded. The goal of vlingo is to allow any developer and their application to use the vlingo voice recognition engine to do whatever the developer wants with voice. So eventually everything you ever wanted to do will be able to do with voice.

    (p.s) still don't text and drive, even if you can do it with your voice!

  5. iPad - Keeping Your Eyes on the Road with Gestures.

    Justin Riley shows off us, on his custom iPad mount, how you can easily control some basic iPad functions with lots of gestures. After you do the quick 2 minute jailbreak (you wanted to do it anyway) you can enable a plethora of gesture controls. Slide from bottom up, top down, from status bar, tap and hold, pinch and even shake. And you can actually assign these gestures to anything you want.

    So you basically end up with a 9.7 inch touch pad, which IMO is easy to use w/o looking at the screen at all. Drive Responsibly™.
