Join me here as I summarize all of the Apple announcements, what is changing and – perhaps more importantly – how this will affect us here in Canada.
So far this process has worked on every computer I have tested it on, please let me know (in the comments) if this works for you too. I’ll take you through the dead simple step-by-step process of how to do this.
The requirements are what were tricky to me, since I was not a Fido customer, did not have a Fido account and was not actively using any services with Fido. Would they unlock the phone? Would I be turned away like so many people are when dealing with these behemoth companies? Let’s see.
I do feel bad right now for all those users of Path on the iPhone that had address book details uploaded to Path’s servers stealthy and in the background. Consequently, this has cause Path’s current CEO to write a sincere apology blog and ultimately delete user data and update the Path application. As the fallout continues, I notice how much of the echo chamber is calling this a failure of Apple to secure user’s address book. Apple can be blamed for many things, but this is not Apple’s fault.
If you are an Apple iPad 2 or iPhone 4S user, today brings great news. There is now an Untethered jailbreak for your devices. Detailes can be had at the greenpois0n.com website. It appears as though there is only an OSX version of the Jailbreak with Windows coming shortly. Check out details on this new release here. I’ll update as I find out more.

Just yesterday, the world lost a huge visionary in the world of tech. No matter what your involvement with technology, Steve Jobs likely touched you in some way. In my world, Steve Jobs and Apple had an immeasurable effect – one that I certainly didn’t expect. It wasn’t always that way, but Apple had a way of making it’s presence known. There are a number of stories out there, I wanted to share my own.

This success has also underscored the boom in smart phones entering he market as well as devices that might fit somewhere in-between (a convertible tablet laptop, anyone?). Many think that companies are fighting to get these […]

I have a read a few blogs about why others have sold or returned their iPads and I really thought I should add my perspective into this mix. The iPad is the uber-popular tablet computing device created by Apple and sold in the bazillions. I purchased an iPad sometime in April and kept it until very recently.
