Google’s Nexus 7 Fail Unboxing Video-s (No, they are not fake)

This is one of the funniest unboxing video I have ever watch. Google’s Nexus 7 tablet unboxing video. No, is not just one, but alot of them have issues getting their brand new Nexus 7 out of the box.

Yes, I’m an Apple fan boy, but anyone who have bought any product from Apple before will love the unboxing experience. It was rumored that every single detail of how you actually unbox the product of Apple was engineered and tested. Seriously it is still the best experience I ever had.

Check out this Nexus 7 unboxing video, you will love it:

Step by Step guide on iOS 5.1.1 untethered Jailbreak via Absinthe 2.0

Yes, After a long wait, finally iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak has finally been released. You can now download and start your jailbreak via the below links:

Absinthe2.0 MacOSX (10.5, 10.6, 10.7)

Absinthe2.0 Windows (XP/Vista/Win7)

Absinthe2.0 Linux (x86/x86_64)

But how do you proceed with the jailbreak? Don’t worry, just read the below guide:

Step by step guide on how to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 using Absinthe 2.0 which I have just done:

1. Download Absinthe from the links above

2. Backup your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. Be sure to always do proper backup before proceeding with any version upgrade or jailbreak process. You can either backup via iCloud or to your computer. It is recommended to backup to your computer, as it will be faster. Especially when we need to do phone restore later on.

3. This step is optional, but Chronic-Dev Team and iPhone Dev Teams recommends us to clear all data in your iOS device before jailbreak your device. This will speed up the jailbreak process, and also have a smoother jailbreak process.

Anyway to clear all data in your device, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Content and Settings.

4. Connect your iOS devices to your computer, be it Mac or PC.

5. Open up Absinthe 2.0 which you have just download

6. Click on Jailbreak button and wait for it to finish.

7. Once jailbreaking is done, go back to iTunes, on the left panel right click your device and select “restore from backup” and restore the copy that you have just backup.

8. That’s all, once the restore process is done, then you will have your Jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 device!

Hope you will have a smooth process jailbreaking, and enjoy! 🙂

 


5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak will most likely be available by this week!

5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak available by this week.

The long awaited 5.1.1 untethered Jailbreak should be available for all iOS Devices other than 3rd Generation Apple TV. Thanks to pod2g and MuscleNerd who have been working very hard for Absinthe 2.0 untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1.

For those whose iPhone and iPad are already at iOS 5.1.1, please wait awhile more, once the jailbreak is ready we will be reporting it asap.

Here are some information which MuscleNerd has posted to his website:

* All info below is tentative and subject to last minute refinements
* @pod2g’s 5.1.1 jailbreak+untether is working out great. All devices are covered except for AppleTV3,1, which currently has no path for jailbreaking.
– the initial 5.1.1 plan used a kernel exploit from @westbaer which unfortunately precluded use in iPod3,1 and iPhone2,1
– @planetbeing stepped up and provided a kernel exploit that covers both of those. Those two JBers are the bomb!
* The 5.1.1 A5 JB is very similar to the A5 5.0.1 JB. @pimskeks has done a tremendous job supporting both 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 in absinthe
* Similar to 5.0.1, there will also be a 5.1.1 CLI “cinject” binary and redsn0w version of the 5.1.1 JB+untether. Absinthe, cinject, and redsn0w will all provide the same JB in different fashions.
– timing is indeterminate. Plans are for this week, but a number of factors can influence that.
* For those wishing to donate, we’ve set up a new 5.1.1 paypal URL:https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=4U6DQGJ2NRVUN
* Please don’t pirate AppStore apps (seriously, please do not).

Cool, I can’t wait for the launch of it! 🙂


Turn your iPad into a Macbook Pro

iPad Macbook Pro

If you are a hardcore iPad user who can’t live without iPad, but still prefer physical keyboard to be more efficient and love the form factor of Macbook Pro, you are in luck. Japanese retailer Rakuten have came out with an iPad case + keyboard which like a smaller size Macbook Pro.

All in one Case for iPad

The case contains a built-in Lithium-polymer battery which can charge your iPad, a USB port, mini USB port and a bluetooth keyboard which can be connected to your iPad. Price of it is around USD$75 and is currently only available in Japan. But honestly a case that have battery, bluetooth keyboard, USB and mini USB port, it is a great deal. Plus it looks very nice.

It is built for iPad 2, but it should work fine with the new iPad as phyiscally the difference is small. If you wish to get it, you can check out rakuten.

iReview – Worlddictionary, Instant Translation & Search

WorldDictionary

One issue on dictionary is the time you take to enter into your dictionary app, this is even true for words that are not easily type in for example chinese words. So normally I will be discourage to search up dictionary to know the meaning of the word because of the effort that I will need to put in.

Multi-Language Supports, Instant Translation

Penpower Technology got me to review their Worlddictionary iPhone/iPad app. It is an instant translation app, so what this apps does is instantly translate any words that it can recognize via your iPhone/iPad camera. This will not only help you save effort in typing in the word to find out the meaning, it will also help you when you don’t even know how to enter in the word.

It supports multiple languages, like English, Chinese, Dutch, Korean, Japanese, Spanish and more. So I don’t have to switch to any other apps, almost like a one app fits all dictionary.

Overview

After using this app for some time, I found out the on screen recognition software is pretty accurate, I don’t much mistake in the app, and the translation is instant. The only issue I found out is that for some languages, it need data network to lookup for the translation. This might be only issue, as we will normally use translation apps when we are overseas traveling and might not have data connectivity at that point of time.

You can get Worldictionary in Apple App Store @ $7.99


iOS Task Management App Rush! Clear or Steps?

iOS Task Management App Showdown!

A few weeks ago, Macheist, Twitterific and Realmac Software Team have came out with a Task Management iOS App idea/Prototype/Promo Video called Clear. It is one of the most intuitive task management app I have ever seen. It almost make managing tasks a pleasure. Thus it created alot of hype and people are waiting for it to launch.

But makers of popular iOS IM client Verbs today launch a Youtube Video showing their up-coming Task Management App – Steps. It feels and looks very similar to Clear, but of course have its own taste of it.

Both of them looks very sleek and nice, and both will be launching soon. So which will you choose to purchase? And which app will win the heart of more iOS users? Let’s stay tuned and see.

For now, let’s what Clear and Steps bring to the table:

Apple’s Educational Announcement on 19 Jan New York City

Apple has sent out invitations to media for an education focused event on 19 January 2012 which will be taking place at Guggenheim Museum New York City. They aren’t hiding from the press, it will be education related.

Thus what we will be seeing from the event will most likely be textbooks available in Apple’s iBook Store. Although it might be not be so interesting for the rest of the world, as there will not be no new product launching, but textbooks coming to iOS will be huge.

This will push iOS devices mainly iPad to be the number one go to for education sector.

 


Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 is coming soon [Video]

Chronic Dev Team is almost done with their very last part of touching up with iOS 5 Jailbreak. It has been close to 2 months since the launch of iOS 5 and iPhone 4S, but till date, only tethered Jailbreak is available.

If you don’t know the difference, tethered Jailbreak means that everytime your iPhone got restarted, you have to connect it to a computer and go through the jailbreak process to boot up the iPhone. Thus untethered Jailbreak is actually very important to most people, as we are worried we won’t be with a computer when our iPhone accidentally needs restart.

pod2g tweeted:

Tons of questions from my nice followers. Too early to answer. Will work on iOS 5.0.1, will try iPad 2 and 4S after others are ready.

So it seems that iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users will have to wait awhile longer than the rest of the family to enjoy untethered jailbreak.

Check out the demo of untethered jailbreak from Chronic Dev Team:
