    Think you've seen or heard the loudest, most annoying alarm clock ever? I have some news for you. If you've never experienced the "KipKay Extra-Loud Alarm Clock", you haven't heard anything yet. Is it really that loud? Ask yourself: "Is 140 decibels from (2) automotive grade horns blaring within 1-10ft of your head at 4:30am loud"? Why yes. Yes it is. This alarm clock really is that loud and yes it will hurt your ears.... precisely why we have an example video so you too can experience ea...
  • Android modder “CyanogenMod” steps on a few toes. Gets Cease and Desisted….
    by Mike

    Anti-Apple people. Those who saw a beacon of light in Android and all of it's openness it offered are going to be crying through tears of disbelief. The uber popular Android modder, "CyanogenMod" has announced that Google has sent him Cease & Desist orders in regards to his "unlicensed" use and distribution of Google apps such as the Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk, Google Maps, etc. which are in actuality "closed source". Google claims he is giving unauthorized (read: un-paying) users to exper...
  • Intel a Hackintosh supporter?
    by Mike
    Posted September 24th, 2009 at 1:52 pm
    My my. It's only against the law if you're under the law. Sound familiar? Ever experience double standards in play? Apparently Intel is a supporter of not only double standards, but hacking as well. Check out the image above and focus on the left. While Intel was busy showing off "Light Peak", their 10Gbps optical interconnect technology geared towards mobile devices, one particularly interesting thing they didn't highlight was the cute little Hackintosh running it all. Read over your o...
  • What the iPhone could be…(or already is if you use Cydia)
    by Mike
    Posted September 24th, 2009 at 12:37 pm
    I'll make it short and sweet. The sooner Apple drops this control nonsense the better off we'll all be. Visual example: The person(s) responsible for this homescreen, Teehan+Lax, dream of a day when they can release such a beaut to the iPhone world. Uhhh....such a store front is already's called Cydia. While some won't for whatever reason take advantage of the unrestricted world that jailbreaking allows, others don't sit idle and wait for permission to control their own devic...
  • MMS activated on your iPhone yet? Force it…

    Posted September 14th, 2009 at 7:26 am
    I've been seeing posts all weekend of people from across the country claiming that MMS has started working on their AT&T; iPhone's. I myself have restored several times hoping it would happen. But it didn't. No worries. Since I upgraded to 3.1, I lost all of my jailbroken goods. There is a saving grace however if you just can't wait (like me) for MMS to start working on your iPhone. It's quite simple actually. Apple iPhone School has an easy to follow and quick tutorial allowing anyone t...
  • Dev-Team responds to purple sn0w claims
    by Mike
    Posted July 16th, 2009 at 9:43 am
    The iPhone Dev-Team is one of the most talented and well respected hacker groups currently around. You have scores of individuals with iPhones that are mercilessly shackled who want true honest to goodness freedom for their property. Why spend several hundred dollars on a device that is neutered? That's what the Dev-Team is here for. However, after an iPhone freedom fighter, George Holtz, became unhappy with how the Dev-Teams progress was going in regards to waiting until after the 3.1 iPh...
  • Palm Pre/iTunes love follow up: iTunes 8.2.1 ends relationship!
    by Mike
    Posted July 15th, 2009 at 1:38 pm
    The announcement of native iTunes support for the Palm Pre was by far one of the biggest shockers to come from Palm land way back when the Pre was but a mere want. Now that it has transgressed into a have, many users have been quite happy with the native iTunes integration. Naturally Apple isn't as it is an "outside" in their not so perfect world. A few weeks back, the two exchanged messages via press releases, twitter accounts, and public announcements centering around the doomed from the ...
  • Purple sn0w released…NOT to be confused with redsn0w, ultrasn0w or Dev-Team
    by Mike
    Posted July 14th, 2009 at 11:51 am
    Now, before you get confused and start mixing up developers, hacker groups and software, let me clear the confusion if any exists: Purple sn0w is developed by George Holtz, the same guy who brought us purple ra1n. The Dev-team brings us widely known pieces of work such as yellow sn0w, red sn0w, and ultrasn0w (3GS support). Why 'ol Georgey boy picked purple sn0w isn't too hard to guess. Still, you have to admire his determination to do his own thing...right? In regards to purple sn0w, it is...
  • Palm Pre now on Verizon! [Illegitimately]
    by Mike
    Posted July 10th, 2009 at 11:21 am
    The Palm Pre is considered by many as the one thing that kept Palm from going completely belly up in the year 2009. While it won't turn the company into an Apple-esque super power overnight, it is at least keeping the lights on. Sadly, CDMA lovers in the U.S. have only one option in which to purchase a Palm Pre: Sprint. However, Cleanser, a member of PreCentral forum, has managed to do the seemingly impossible. He unlocked his Pre and got it up and *mostly* running on Verizon (voice and SM...

    Getting locked into some greedy wireless carrier with shoddy service and even shoddier CS is never a fun way to spend 2-3 years of your life. It's basically like another form of prison. So what is the tech inclined individual such as yourself supposed to do? Once again, taking matters into your own hands is the best answer. Just how do you accomplish said task? Simple, with a nifty comic book titled: "Citizen Engineer: SIM Card Hacking" published by Adafruit Industries. Said book comes w...
  • Samsung Omnia: the new *hacked* home of Android
    by Mike
    Posted June 25th, 2009 at 10:49 am
    When consumers are faced with limited choices, taking matters into their own hands is often their response. In regards to Android, while the line up for the second half of the year looks promising, that doesn't do anyone much good right now who have a few handsets to choose from with hardware that is ok at best. Enter hackersville. The Samsung Omnia is pretty sweet phone albeit one big problem -- it runs Windows Mobile. Thankfully there world isn't going though a shortage of determined, sk...
  • Stick it to the man - Enable MMS on AT&T for U.S. users right now!
    by Mike
    Posted June 18th, 2009 at 9:28 am
    If you hate the fact that AT&T is the sole reason that iPhone OS 3.0 is not going to be everything it could be at launch, take matters into your own hands and give AT&T the cold, hard, digital shoulder.  Don't worry, you don't have to be a master programmer or dive into system files.  All you need is a spare "dummy" AT&T phone.  With that phone do the following:  u can enable ur MMS settings… just do this…. -take sim out of iphone -place into old ATT phone w/ MMS capab...
