Apparently the iPhone 2.0 software currently in beta and set to release in June 08 has been hacked out of the iPhone SDK Kit. The folks over at Engadget got a glimpse at the new features and from what it seems , its not going to sweep you off your feet.
Here is what they found:
Microsoft Exchange - Using AT&T network changes are checked almost instantly but using Wi-Fi it checks for changes every now and then.
Still no contacts search option
Mysterious new button in the calendar
App Store Button
Added Cisco VPN client but unsure whether it supports SecurID or other hardware token authenticators
Capability to set preferred WiFi networks
New horizontal scientific mode calculator now does commas and has function support
Capability to multi-select mail (like Windows Mobile OS)
Here is a good youTube video I was able to find (turn the volume down the background music sucks).
This is one of the hottest hacks I have come across since I’ve gotten my Pocket PC (HTC Touch from Sprint). This hack puts unlimited XM Radio and MobiTV on your Pocket PC forever and ever and ever (ok you get the idea). How is this possible? Well its a 3 day trial with a script included with the install that allows the trial to reset whenever you power off your device. Not all the channels are included but the ones that are included = awesome AND best of all its completely free! Pretty sweet huh?
Well incase you have not heard of XM radio or MobiTV here is a little background:
If your Microsoft Vista (or Windows XP) computer is running sluggishly or you just want all the speed you can get and have installed as much Physical Memory as you can, don’t fear, there are still many ways you can increase the responsiveness of your PC. This article will go through the steps on how to increase your Virtual Memory to achieve the speed you need.
What is Virtual Memory?
Temporary storage used by a computer to run programs that need more memory than the computer has.
To increase Virtual Memory you will need to increase the size of your paging file.
What is a Paging file?
A hidden file or files on the hard disk that Windows uses to hold parts of programs and data files that do not fit in memory. The paging file and physical memory, or random access memory (RAM), comprise virtual memory. Windows moves data from the paging file to memory as needed and moves data from memory to the paging file to make room for new data. Also known as a swap file.
Windows supposedly sets the initial minimum size of the paging file at the amount of random access memory (RAM) installed on your computer plus 300 megabytes (MB), and the maximum size at 3 times the amount of RAM installed on your computer.
7 Step Process:
Open System by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System. [Read more →]
Just because you don’t have an iPhone doesn’t mean that you cannot watch YouTube videos on your phone. If you have Windows Mobile 2003 running on your Pocket PC or Smartphone you can watch YouTube videos easily and for free. What you need is YouTube Pocket. It is a completely FREE service (like most things on this site)! Unlike with the iPhone you will be able to search for videos from the actual YouTube site not the mobile version which currently has a limited amount of videos (very disappointing). All you need to do is download the TCPMP player and FLV(Flash) plugin from here . In case you did not know, TCPMP is an awesome free professional player for the Windows Mobile platform and can do much more than play YouTube files.
Here is a video from YouTube of the installation process:
I found this awesome program called Nirsoft WirelessKeyView which recovers all wireless network keys (WEP/WPA) stored in your computer by the ‘Wireless Zero Configuration’ service of Windows XP and by the ‘WLAN AutoConfig’ service of Windows Vista. It allows you to easily save all keys to text/html/xml file, or copy a single key to the clipboard. It runs as an executable file so no installation is needed. This program comes in handy if you disconnect or disable a wireless adapter to connect to another network but will need to reconnect to the original network in the future. Get it now from here.
