Open warfare in the courts that maintain Apple and Samsung could end in a civilized manner after both companies this week to accede to their s CEO, Tim Cook and Choi Gee-sung, they feel to talk to try to reach an agreement. A trial judge in San Francisco mediate during discussions with the intention of stopping at a crossing of patent lawsuits that already spans more than twenty cases in ten countries.
The decisive meeting will take place within 90 days and more than one strain can kill for an ear to see what terms are developed. Especially considering it started when Steve Jobs decided to start a crusade against Android focusing on ending the Korean for “blatant copy” of the iPhone and the iPad.
Samsung of course has not been settled, and even while their CEOs are prepared to discuss, lawyers are toiling in their work by submitting a new application that covers eight patents affecting virtually the entire range of Apple products: from iPad iPhone and the Mac, Apple TV, and iTunes icloud.

Those of you with an Apple Store near you may know from personal experience or that of a relative or friend: the Genius Bar did not put many obstacles to replace a broken iPhone with an identical immediately (always depending on the fault that has the iPhone, of course). Well according to sources 9to5mac and due to a shortage of white units of the iPhone 4, it appears that in some Apple Store are changing units damaged by white iPhone 4 iPhone 4S units of the same color.
Of course, when the rules indicate that Apple must replace the iPhone and no stock of the exact model you have the client, no other. The iPhone 4S is a model ships repaired, but it’s still a substantial improvement in performance compared to the iPhone 4 you had before. Of course, all this happens when the iPhone 4 that presents problems under warranty.
The bad news is that the shortage of units of the iPhone 4 white only affects the United States and Canada, so now you can remove the coat again and forget the intentions of “having an unfortunate accident” with your iPhone 4 white. I’m afraid the idea would not have worked anyway.

Told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Melinda Gates, wife of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, to their three children grow up as normal and down to earth as possible.
The children, born in 1996, 1999 and 2002 must therefore live with various restrictions. An iPhone or an iPod from Apple, for example, frowned upon in the Gates home. Melinda Gates is itself basically a very down to earth.
Also other things prohibit Bill and Melinda Gates for their children. Their older daughter said in this regard: “Mom, tell not only what we can not all this is totally embarrassing..”
Formerly the wife of Bill Gates, for example, has helped in the cleaning company of her father on weekends and scrubbed floors and cleaned ovens. She still pays attention to the prices, although Melinda Gates at the assets of more than 60 billion U.S. dollars would certainly not mandatory.
They would declare themselves to be spent on a hamburger is not more money than for another, provided it does not taste better. Although she was obviously once housed in a beautiful hotel meant her whole luxury of nothing, she said.

We have seen what happened to Movistar mobile after stop subsidizing new customers and hopefully that Vodafone will have similar results in April as a net loss of lines in portability but the operator will attempt to better retain their and customers to stop the loss of lines that go to another operator for a new phone so some balance net results after the decline expected by the incoming portability no longer reach the stop “give them” phones.
Vodafone wants to continue subsidizing phones to their existing customers more attractive way to stay rather than switch to another operator such as Orange or Telstra. Did you get? To this end, Vodafone introduces two new options to renew the stay mobile for you to choose the one you interest for each of your lines:
Points to keep renewing with freedom of exchange rates
The points program is replaced by the new points Renews with reducing steps points to five different possibilities for each terminal euros + points.
For users who want to maintain freedom to change rates at any time during the stay of 24 months, may use the points available every 12 months or every 6 months if a customer if need Gold or Platinum or Diamond if you have enough points and .
If you stay and want or need to change phone, you will also have access to phones without permanence prices that are offered to new and high portability with the ability to facilitate the payment and deduct funding the delivery of phones used by the program Re-opens.
Advantages if you continue to renew 24 months at the same rate
If you think your spending habits will not change in the future and you are comfortable with any of the rates by size of Vodafone , you can stay in the price sign at the same time you renew your phone and so better prices. The conditions of access to Renew with advantages are:
Being Vodafone customer with at least one year old.
Sign 24 months spent in Vodafone and of equal or greater rate monthly fee.
Stay two months or less to complete the current terminal grant stay for a customer unless you stay for Diamond or discount rate (SIM Only), you can renew residence six months before completion (but lose 15% discount on Only SIM fee).
Although the price depends on the tariff, the mobile exchange points implies that counting from zero again.
If you decide not to renew the mobile and has ended commitment to stay, you can activate the 15% discount on service fee size for less (SIM Only) in exchange for a stay at Vodafone for 12 months.

If you have an iPhone or an Android phone you probably have the home screen locked with a 4-digit code, mostly to have some privacy, which never hurts, well, if we leave it somewhere it difficult for people malicious access to our information (I more or less takes the odd e-mail with your company’s confidential information).
As can be seen in the video after the jump, the Swedish company Micro Systemation is able to obtain all the information in your phone protected by a code number in seconds. In the show get a Nokia, but devices using Android and IOS are not spared either (the terminal list is long). Fortunately the company’s customers use it to do good (or so one assumes), if we divide by nationality: United States is used by the military, FBI and other police forces, in Britain about 98% of its enforcement authorities have access to this tool, something similar happens in Sweden and France.
A few hours ago from Micro Systemation had uploaded a video to YouTube that showed the process with an iPhone, but has been deleted, so I leave you like a demo on a Nokia and a little you describe the process followed with the the Cupertino device (so you can get an idea):
With the iPhone connected via USB to a hub manufactured by Micro Systemation, started the forensics program XRY mobile devices in a Windows computer, the program detects that it is directly an iPhone and with hardly a couple of clicks we access the information on the terminal (capacity, serial number, software that takes, specific model), so we headed to one of the key-shaped icon, you click on it and give us some instructions similar to those used with the jailbreak (turn off the phone, wait 5 seconds, turn squeezing together for nine seconds, the terminal with the lock button and starting tight end for 9 seconds for releasing the lock), this fact appears to us the program logo and parnde seconds later code in the iPhone screen in a matter of seconds the 4 digit password appears on the computer screen.

During the last keynote where they introduced the new iPhone, there were many innovations presented. Along with the iPhone had the necessary renewal of the Apple TV, which brought a new operating system for it and upgrade your processor to A5 we added the ability to play video in full HD at 1080p. We also saw as not, a new iPhone with a spectacular display graphics engine and more, all focused on what really matters in this device, its applications.
But Tim Cook dropped the bomb … The year 2012 will be very busy for the users of the block and come loaded with new features. Already announced something similar in 2009 and the new products were not exactly small. For now we have a new iPhone, new OS, but there will not be the thing. In late summer, early fall there will be a new iPhone, the notebook range will be renewed, the iMac and the “forgotten” Mac Pro waiting their turn. So the question this week is geared to:
In the previous question, my colleague Samuel Campos asked if the next iPhone in the works when the question was asked, would include LTE connectivity that had so much presence at Mobile World Congress this year. The question has been answered by Apple itself But let’s stay with your responses. most votes was that of DonkeyG5 who answered with a terse “No. Next conference question? “. But I always liked the answers reasoned, if I may I will stay with the second most voted Chicote69:
And who cares that incorporates it?. In this country, when LTE with decent coverage, the iPad 3 will be a relic.
And even with surprise and LTE coming soon, why would we want as much speed if all that pass rates of 500 Mb per month is expensive?.
I prefer to give 2Gb/mes 3G to 6.50 € (in Pepephone plan, which now gives me 650Mb/mes for that price), not 4G and 650Mb (Movistar, Vodafone … with 500 Mb for 15 € per month or speak …)
The new iPhone has the ability to connect to 4G networks and its low implementation is not compatible with 4G networks outside the United States of America, so this war is the less bland communities until there is a general introduction them. Whenever we enter into these debates, I remember when I first access to a mobile WAP and how slow it was. Get a Smartphone speeds provided by 3G networks today seem to me more than enough for now to the most common uses of it.

Samsung has announced what will the recently announced new Tablet Tab Galaxy 2 Galaxy and cost-grade 10.1. The entry level Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with 7 inch screen, WiFi and 16GB of memory will cost 439 euros, therefore. € 499 Samsung calls for both the Galaxy Tab 2 with 7 inch screen and UMTS as well as for the larger Galaxy Tab 2 with 10 inch screen and WiFi. The larger Galaxy Tab 2 is 1.10 with UMTS even cost 569 €.
Once again, the more expensive Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 for the Samsung 729 € is required. The target price level of the South Korean manufacturer is so ambitious. Really cheap, the new tablets do not need. Instead, Samsung apparently based on industry Primus Apple. The Group of Cupertino requested for the iPad the third generation at least 479 €. The prices of Samsung may therefore be bad for the customers, but good for Apple.
Note should be a comparison, however, that it is the stated price of Samsung merely non-binding price recommendations. In the past, has already been shown that these statements by the trade – are often well below – unlike Apple. Real bargains are, however, especially for the launch, which will take place in the coming weeks, not to be expected.

Gone is the time when Steve Jobs attending birthday parties as the son of John Lennon to a Macintosh under his arm as a gift. Andy Warhol was one of the guests and when he told the young man who was setting up the computer that someone had been calling repeatedly to give him one and he had never returned the call, it turned and replied, “Yes, I did. I’m Steve Jobs “. Warhol finally accepted the gift and Jobs even gave a lesson in how to draw with him.
He did not have the New York Magazine we discovered that celebrities are feted by the marks getting almost anything for free, from clothing to travel and cars. Unfortunately for them, Apple has long since ceased to play that game and the celebrities are now besetting the block trying to get before anyone else and a queue without waiting for an iPhone or iPad.
Posted: March 9th, 2012 | Author: thebrandbarry | Filed under: Mobilephones | Tags: iPhone OS 5.1, jailbreak
The jailbreak is always a matter of time, while recognizing that the latter has been very rapid. The iPhone Dev-Team has already released relevant tools so we can run code signed at our iDevice with IOS 5.1, which as you know version saw the light yesterday with the announcement of the new iPhone .
Good news for fans of Cydia and company. However, this jailbreak is the moment two limitations. On one side is tethered is saying that when we reboot our device to redo the process, although it is true that is lighter than the first time that we do, but you have to do it.
The second drawback is found in the hardware. Currently the jailbreak only supports devices with A4 processor. That is, the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and the new iPad are left off the list. However, sooner or later it will get the rest models, the community in this regard has always shown doing a great job.
In addition, this jailbreak introduces a restriction is that perhaps for some n problem: iBooks will not function in this release nor in the next updates are made through redsn0w. If you have special interest in jailbreak on, but do not forget these three issues.
