Siri on iPod Touch with simple iPhone 4S restore

It's not even a trick, it would seem, nor is it a hack or a break of any kind, but certainly not something Apple would have you doing - a restore of an iPhone 4S built on an iPod Touch is what mister AppleGordon has done, and with it came Siri! Before you get your fingers twisted in a bundle trying this little oddity out, note this: it's only one man's word against all sensical notions that such a thing will, almost certainly, brick your device. In other words, don't try this at home, but DO giggle at the concept.

Android hacker Koush makes mobile internet tethering undetectable by carriers

Android hacker Koush makes mobile internet tethering undetectable by carriers

When the idea that your smartphone's data connection would be able to be shared by your laptop with no additional charge, everyone seemed to be on board - over the past year, carriers have started up extra costs for this and have struck down all attempts by apps to sidestep the process - until now.

And it's completely (nearly) undetectable by carriers.

It seems that the peer-to-peer car rental service HiGear found out the problems first hand.
