iPhone 3GS & 3G get iOS 4.2.1 carrier unlock with new redsn0w tool

The iPhone Dev Team have released a new iPhone 3G/iPhone 3GS carrier unlock, taking advantage of a susceptible baseband that Apple itself is still supplying, and allowing the older smartphones to use any SIM with iOS 4.2.1. This new redsn0w version relies on baseband 06.15 still offered as part of the iPad's iOS 3.2.2 firmware; however, there are also some significant provisos that mean this method isn't for everybody.

Panasonic MW-20 digital photo frame doubles as iPhone speaker-dock

Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised; Panasonic's latest digital photo frame has sprouted an iPhone dock, allowing you to not only display images stored on its 2GB of internal storage but any pictures on the Apple smartphone.  The Panasonic MW-20 has a 9-inch LCD display on an adjustable hinge, and also works as a speaker-dock thanks to its 5.6-mm Super Slim Semi Dome Speaker and sound diffuser.

Sonos Wireless Dock WD100 streams iPod/iPhone music

Sonos Wireless Dock WD100 streams iPod/iPhone music

Sonos has outed the latest part of its streaming music puzzle, in the shape of the Sonos Wireless Dock WD100.  Packing an integrated Sonos wireless connection and an iPod/iPhone docking connector, the WD100 basically takes whatever music is stored on your Apple PMP and funnels it around the house.

It's all Apple certified, so there shouldn't be any annoying "this accessory isn't supported" pop-ups, and it'll work with a broad range of the company's hardware: the iPod touch (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd, 4th, and 5th generation), and iPhone (original, 3G, 3GS and 4).  Sadly no iPad support, since the cradle is the wrong shape.

Sound Freaq SFQ01 hands-on

Is there still room for more iPod speaker docks?  New company Sound Freaq reckon so, and their SFQ01 is an attempt to take a slice of the lucrative market.  Designed with - as they themselves said - love-it or hate-it aesthetics, the slab-sided dock system promises above-average sound quality thanks to the company's own UQ DSP system.  Meanwhile, a companion iPad app allows for straightforward remote control, together with streaming from the Apple slate itself.

iPhone 3G iOS 4 fix “coming soon” says purported Jobs email

iPhone 3G iOS 4 fix “coming soon” says purported Jobs email

We've learnt to be pretty skeptical about emails purported to be from Steve Jobs, but the prospect of an imminent fix for iPhone 3G owners with slow, glitchy and downright frustrating handsets after updating to iOS 4 is too good to be true.  Having heard that Apple were investigating the reports, a Mac Rumors reader emailed the CEO to ask if an official downgrade option was really in the works; according to Jobs' reply, there's a "software update coming soon."

Apple iOS 4.0.2 Software Update Unleashed

Apple iOS 4.0.2 Software Update Unleashed

Apple has just released the iOS 4.0.2 software update for the majority of their iDevices. But, unlike many other updates in the past, this one's primary focus is one thing, and one thing only: to patch up that pesky malicious PDF situation that shot up a couple weeks back. The update doesn't really do anything other than that, despite the fact it comes in two variations: 4.0.2 and 3.2.2. (for the iPad).
