Cook argued that 1080p hardware upgrade and greater content availability on iTunes helped drive sales. Microsoft was keen on pointing out that Apple TV numbers pale in comparison to its Xbox 360 console…(…)

The Chronic Dev Team is working hard to bring iPad 2,4 support to Absinthe

May 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Apple iPhone

If you happen to own a newer WiFi only iPad 2,4, you undoubtedly know what it feels like to be left out of the fun. That’s because the iPad 2,4 is one of the very few iOS 5.1.1 devices that can’t be jailbroken with the new Absinthe 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak tool. Outside of the Apple TV 3, you’re among some pretty lonely company.

Fortunately, it looks like all of that is about to change. During the initial release of Absinthe, the team of hackers stated that iPad 2,4 support was coming soon, and it looks like that statement is holding true.(…)

Jukebox adds an awesome music widget to Dashboard X and Notification Center

May 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Apple iPhone

Jukebox is an upcoming Notification Center widget that also does double duty as a Dashboard X widget. Its purpose is to allow you to control your music from literally anywhere, which is primarily attributed to its flexibility as both a Notification Center widget, while at the same time maintaining a spot on your Home screen.

The initial release of Jukebox will only feature integration with the stock Music app, but the developer is hard at work at making it play nice with 3rd party music apps like Spotify and Pandora. Besides this one obvious shortcoming, Jukebox is shaping up to be a top tier Notification Center widget, and by far the best Dashboard X widget yet…(…)

Blackout is a simple tweak that replaces the stock silver status bar with a solid black background. It’s a change that’s purely aesthetic, and it features no options or settings to configure.

Developer, Adam bell, suggests that Blackout looks best when paired with chpwn’s Zephyr tweak, and I have to concur. The black status bar blend seamlessly when switching between apps using Zephyr’s multitouch gestures. Take a look inside for our full video walkthrough of Blackout.(…)

What to expect from tomorrow’s Tim Cook talk at D10: All Things Digital

May 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Apple iPhone

As announced last month, Apple’s head honcho Tim Cook will kick off the Wall Street Journal’s annual technology conference, better known under the D: All Things Digital moniker.

The three-day event begins Tuesday, May 29, and takes place at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

This will be Cook’s first appearance at such a high-profile media even that gathers Silicon Valley celebrities who will join columnists Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher on stage for some seriously unscripted hard talk.

Cook’s predecessor, the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, made headline appearances at the conference twice: once in 2007 when he sat down with Bill Gates in what went down in history as an eye-opening exchange between the two tech titans, and the other time in 2010, when Jobs commented on Apple’s war on Flash, let us in on how the iPad and iPhone came to be and touched upon other controversial topics, incuding app rejections and his take on the state of the television industry.

Cook will be the opening-night speaker at D10. Expect Mossberg and Swisher to grill him on tongue-in-cheek topics, the least significant being his vision of post-Jobs Apple. While Cook lacks the energy and charisma of his predecessor, he is in charge now and the media, fans and rivals are sure to pay attention to his every word.

iDB we’ll be on hand, posting the most interesting tidbits right as they happen. Here’s what to expect…(…)
