Windows Phone 7 Jailbreak Soon

Away from Apple iOS devices, it looks like we will see a new jailbreak scene, but this time will be on Windows Phone 7 theater. This came few weeks after the launch of Windows Phone 7 around the world, so we are about to start the cat and mouse game.
According to iStartedSomething, an Australian developer called Chris Walshie was successfully able to prove a method to run “native unmanaged code" on a retail Windows Phone 7 device.
The pieces started falling into place when user “hounsell” on xda-developers.com noticed the a third-party application in the WP7 marketplace (Network Profile by Samsung) used “native” code, not Silverlight-managed code as all non-Microsoft apps should.

Upon closer inspection, he documented some interesting characteristics of the application that gave it its native capabilities – most notably a DLL called “Microsoft.Phone.InteropServices”, which if poked the right way provided COM access.
After this techie quotation, what is the conclusion ? what is the impact on the Windows Phone 7 user? We expect to see a method or a tool to jailbreak this OS very soon which will be followed by a third party jailbreak store apps just as iOS devices Cydia app store. Of course these jailbreak apps will give your WP7 phone new powers. What do you expect?

Facebook's Mail Coming this Monday to Take on Gmail

Project Titan is coming on Monday in Facebook's event to take on Gmail. Facebook has acquiredFB.com domain name, may be for this project. Project Titan is a web-based email client that we hear is unofficially referred to internally as its “Gmail killer”.

The event that we already reported about hinted strongly that the news would have something to do with its inbox, or chat improvements. Now, it seems like Titan is real. From here, you shall ask yourself, "Why I'll give up Gmail for Facebook mail?".
If I were Google, I would be very angry because Facebook mail could be a killer but why will it kill Gmail? Facebook has 500 million active users while Gmail is estimated at 170 million registered users. Think about it, Facebook's users are already using messaging system and chat system so may be lots of users (probably all) will try this Facebook Mail. I think if Facebook played the game right and made the best web-based e-mail, it will kill Gmail, what about you?

iOS 4.2 Public Launch on November 24th?

Here we go, let the rumors start again about iOS 4.2 public release. A new rumor claims that iOS 4.2 update is set to launch on November 24th, the day before Thanksgiving in the U.S.
The iOS 4.2 software update had been expected today, but Apple has delayed it release until Nov 24, a reliable source has told the Telegraph.

Apple has refused to comment on the speculation, stating only that it had said the software update would be released in November.

But a source that works closely with Apple said that the company had shelved its original plan to release the software update today, and had instead pushed back the launch until later this month.
iOS 4.2 was set to launch today but has been delayed owing to Wi-Fi issues on iPad so Apple today has pushed a new GM seed for iPad only to address this issue. Anyway, we'll keep you updated whenever iOS 4.2 is available. [via MacRumors]

So this new GM release is meant to address the WiFi issues on iPad we already reported so iOS 4.2 might goes public in few days. The update is meant for iPad only.

Yes, as some of you noticed, Apple didn’t change the date of the original GM build, so you’ll still see “November 1″. However, the iPad build is new. The original GM build was 8C134. The new iPad build is 8C134b.

According to Macstories's reliable source, that iOS 4.2 public release has been delayed due to WiFi connection issues which discovered by users running iOS 4.2 GM build on iPad, as well as it has been widely documented over forums and discussion boards.
Specifically what happened ? when the iPad users - who running iOS 4.2 GM build - try to connect a local network, they lost the connection after minutes. According to the source Apple may be compelled to release a new update of the GM build to fix the iPad WiFi issue and it may be released internally, to a few selected developers .

Conclusion : iOS 4.2 public release will be delayed for at least a week, while the developers test the new GM version to get feedback free of issues. iTunes 10.1 will be delayed also due to the iOS 4.2 delaying in order to ensure compatibility with the final iOS 4.2 .

Steve Jobs' Personal Call with iPad Developer

Let's imagine, you are developer, you spend quality hours making a quality app, you submit it to the App Store, then..... they reject it and you are so pissed off that so you send back a flaming email. After a few hours, Steve rings you up to solve your problem.
The same thing happened to Ram Arumugam, a Seattle based app developer. So Mr. Ram here, made an iPad app named "Economy for iPad", which he obviously sent it for approval. But, the Apple genius rejects the app because he hadn't used some of the public API's provided by Apple to solve a keyboard issue. Ram Arumugam was angry so he sent an email to Apple to vent out his anger. Just after 2 hours, Steve called Ram up to sort out the problem and make him an happy Dev.
"I was very surprised," Ram told the paper. "I was not even sure whether he would have time to read the e-mail." The outcome of the conversation, however, resulted in Ram's app finally getting into the App Store. It took a conversation with Jobs to get Ram to drop the troublesome code. Subsequently, we now the privilege of checking out the $2.99 app that caused such a raucous. For Ram, of course, the ordeal was worth it. The dev was happy to report that his economic stat-filled app is now the top selling paid app in the finance category of the iPad App Store.
That really nice of you Steve! So what do you guys think? [via ModMyiSeattleTimes]
