The iPad 2 jailbreak – How necessary is it?

I think anyone would be hard pressed to claim that the iPad 2 is not a solid tablet. I’ve had mine for a few weeks now and I find it noticeably faster and better than the original iPad. However, one thing the iPad 2 lacks is a jailbreak. Sure, all the big hackers are working on the jailbreak but so far no one has succeeded.

The funny thing is, though, I’m really not missing it. Continue reading

Well, if a recent post on Adobe’s website is any indication, they have found a solution that will please everyone. Continue reading

Guide to Jailbreaking your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad/Apple TV

iOS Jailbreaking is a process that allows devices running Apple’s iOS operating system (e.g. iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and recently Apple TV) to gain full access (root access) to all features of the said operating system, thereby removing limitations imposed by Apple. Once jailbroken, iOS users are able to download additional applications, extensions and themes that are unavailable through the official App Store, via installers such as Cydia, one of a number of current means for older iPhones. A jailbroken iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch running iOS can still use the App Store and iTunes and other normal functions, such as making telephone calls.

Below is a consolidated list of every iOS device and the jailbreaking tool required for nearly every version of the firmware. To simplify the process, I recommend upgrading your device to the newest iOS version supported by the jailbreak prior to performing the jailbreak. For now (3/20/2011), stay away from version 4.3 as the jailbreak is not yet ready for release (with the exception of the Apple TV). Continue reading

How to Stream Movies from your Mac/PC to your iPad or iPhone

The thing about the iPad is that it’s an amazing device… if you know how to take advantage of it. For example, I was chatting with an attending at the hospital about the iPad and he said he thought it “sucked” because he was unable to do some things he wanted with it. It turned out he just didn’t know how and, after explaining the functions, he couldn’t be happier with it.

Apart from the incredible medical software available for the iPad, one of the other remarkable features of the iPad is all the available video and entertainment software. Apple’s advertising goes something along the lines of “you get one device and 200,000 possibilities” (or maybe I just thought that, I don’t know). One of those possibilities is to open your iPad up to streaming video. That’s right – movies that resides on your computer can be watched on your iPad without needed to copy anything to your device and use up space. Now that you know where we’re going in this article, let me introduce you to Air Video. Continue reading

14 must-have jailbreak-only tweaks for the iPhone

While most people associate “forbidden” applications with jailbreaking, there are also a number of great tweaks in Cydia that will improve the way the iPhone works and how you can use it. These tweaks often change the way existing applications work and add useful features. In fact, one cannot help but wonder why Apple didn’t include some of these in the stock iOS.

Regardless, here is a list of 14 of some of the best tweaks available in Cydia: Continue reading

Brain Tutor HD for the Apple iPad

By Brian Wells, MS-3, MSM, MPH

Few areas of medical science remain as wondrous and mysterious as that of neurology. Indeed, I remember not so long ago sitting in a study hall with a book on neuroanatomy and a collection of class notes and pages printed from various sites on the Internet, often staring off into the field outside the study hall as I tried to visualize in three dimensions the two dimensional diagrams about which I was learning. Of course, there were models of the brain and numerous MRIs and CTs to examine but nothing which elegantly combined the information with the images, transforming 2D slice to 3D realism. This is the goal which Brain Tutor HD seeks to achieve. Continue reading
