Good news, comex released a jailbreak for all iDevices running iOS FW 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1 and iPad 3.2.1. It is a web-based jailbreak and its probably the most easy jailbreak method ever. All you have to do is go to jailbreakme.com, “slide to jailbreak” and you are done. Now your iDevice will be jailbroken remotely. Unfortunately the servers have some trouble with all the traffic right now, so you may experience some problems while trying to jailbreak using jailbreakme.com.
With the iPhone 4 right around the corner its time for some price comparison. The Italian website SetteB.IT created a summary of all the known iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 prices including 17 different countries (click here for full version). It turned out the cheapest place to purchase your iPhone is Hong Kong with prices from €406 till €585 and the most expansive is Italy with prices between €539 and €779 “without taxes”. There are no prices known in Germany, Japan, Vs and the Netherlands because they only sell the iPhone together with a contract.
Above you can see a speed comparison between the last 4 iPhone models to show you how much the iPhone has been improved in the last couple of years. The iPhone 2G is running on firmware 3.1.3, the 3G on 3.1.2, the 3GS 4.01 and the iPhone 4 was running 4.0.

It looks like the iPhone 3G is running out of stock. The supplies of the 8 GB iPhone 3G are running low, in the Italian and Australian Apple Store the “contract-free” iPhone 3G ‘8GB’ is already saying ‘Currently Unavailable’. Other countries like United Kingdom and The Netherlands also got difficulties delivering the iPhone 3G. Also AT&T in the VS isn’t getting any new iPhone 3G 8GB models.
Boy Genius Report : We’ve heard that Apple has stopped shipping iPhone 3G 8GB units to AT&T stores and orders are not being placed for the device. Could this mean we might see the iPhone 3GS drop to $99 and make way for a new model? » iPhone 3G Running Out Of Stock
In the OS 4.0 keynote Steve Jobs told us that multitasking will only be available on the iPhone 3GS and the 3e generation iPod Touch. This is a disappointment for the older iDevice owners. But luckily “Will Strafach” informed us that multitasking will be available on older iDevices when you jailbreak your device and edit the plist-file called N82AP.plist (3G). And he was right, because @DarkMalloc uploaded a movie on YouTube showing multitasking on the iPhone 3G, which works fine. » iPhone OS 4.0 Multitasking On iPhone 3G
This clip is almost a year old, but I find it a very funny commercial about the iPhone. It probably took a lot of time to create it. I’ll admit, it’s more like a filler news, but on a boring Sunday what else there is to do :P.
