  • What is JailBreaking?
    Posted on January 25, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By Mitch Stevens


    Since the release of the first iPhone in 2007 I have been jail breaking the iphone. I have been caught up in conversation many times about the ability of the iPhone. When I referred to the iPhone it's often hard for me to perceive it without being able to include the many Cydia applications I use with the wonderful IOS operating system.


    JailBreak iPhone


    Many people have often looked at me as if they were very confused, and say.  What is jailbreaking? This is the single most question I am asked when discussing the iPhone. I have thought long and hard on the simplest way to explain jailbreaking to a person who does not understand what it is at all about.   To this nd, I have crafted the following jailbreaking overview So I have tried to think about this as elementary as possible to facilitate reader  understanding.


    Jailbreaking allows the iPhone or other  idevices such as the iPad and iPod user more freedom. When Apple developed the iPhone in their mega-billion-dollar factories, the developers, at their own discretion determined what we could and could not do with our iphones. That is a decision , I do not agree with that in any terms.  Like many people I paid for this product with my personal money and believe  that I should be able to decide on changing its appearance or the sounds it makes when it rebooting.  Yet in  2008 or 2009 jailbreaking your iPhone was declared illegal.

    Jailbreaking allows the user to download third-party applications from a store called Cydia. In this store many developers have been denied the chance to sell their application in the  ” Apple store".    Many of the applications in the Cydia store are better applications than many I have downloaded from the Apple store.  That being said these applications are hosted on repositories which are sources in the Cydia store.  These applications have gone through a screening process as the Cydia operators are stand up characters and would not ruin their reputation by enabling  applications that are unethical or damaging to your device.

    I have often had many people argue that they were afraid to download the applications from Cydia because they weren't signed from Apple.   There is a huge open source environment on the web... wherein different developers collaborate together to create new or enhance existing application with more powerful features.  As such, just because an application does not originate from Apple it does not mean it hasn't been fully screened or the code has not gone through an extensive testing process to filter or eliminate viruses.


    Many of the applications from Cydia are just small tweaks. Such as, being able to swipe the status bar to open what's called SB settings.  Inside Sbsettings you can control Bluetooth, reboot, and much more. This is just an example of some of the applications that are available in Cydia. Also in Cydia you can download themes for your idevices. What I mean by theme is you can change the physical appearance of the iPhone. Whether it’s the size of the icons or the color of the status bar and much more. Needless to say, the question, What is Jailbreaking?  could revoke a 500 page book. I'm trying to do it in just a few paragraphs. So to putt short and sweet. Jailbreaking allows the user to download third-party applications and themes.  This will allow the user to use their phone however they wish. If you want to open the settings menu by swiping the status bar, that can be accomplished. There are many great applications and tweaks inside Cydia. Since this article is about what is jailbreaking? I am going to include a few must have applications from Cydia.


    Top Must Have Cydia Applications :


    ·        SBswitcher  a tweak for iOS which will basically add a new pane over the multi-tasking pane, which will allow you to bookmark nine of your most-used apps. Now this new pane will allow a very quick access to all your favourite apps.  This app also gives you an easy access to a few of your System Settings. Bundled with its core feature, this app is definitely worth $0.99.  Props to the developer Tolani.  He has added in the release notes that this tweak is not yet available for iPad but should be soon.


    ·        Activator-Free- add gestures to open application.


    ·        Infiniboard-$1.99Vertically scroll the springboard.  Addis many applications as you wish to each page. No limits


    ·        Packagebackup-$7.99 Simple way to save your Cydia application in one centralized location.  Should you need to do are store simply do so with a couple clicks.


    ·        iFile $4-Great way to SSH into the device without connecting to a computer.  Do things such as change icons to much more advance task.


    ·        Springtomize$2.99- This application has over 50 tweaks inside it.  You can change the color of status bar, size of icons, change carrier, and more.


    ·        Winterboard- FREE This is how you add themes to the device for changing its physical appearance.  You can also add themes to the lock screen, change reboot sounds. This application is free however many of the themes are paid.

  • Will the iPad Revolutionize Textbooks?
    Posted on January 25, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By Megan Fleet


    In my formative school years, there were always concerns of what toll hefty textbooks and toting them around in backpacks would be.  Luckily, The students of the 21st century may  not have to share in that burden with Apple's announcement that it would begin offering digital  textbooks on their iPad via its iBooks 2 app.

    Leaving your valuable Apple devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with stylish bags, sleeves and cases.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside our brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Apple is setting its sights on the textbook industry - Textbooks for iPad, which became available by way of a new textbook category in iBooks 2, which requires iOS 5 and is currently available as an update to the original iBooks app, provide students with a modern, interactive replacement for conventional printed textbooks. They support multi-touch gestures and also feature dictionary look-up integration and annotation. Students can highlight text, take notes and even create virtual note cards to reference later while studying.

    Protect your iPad with the latest trend setting fashionable accessories that express your unique style!  Discover an extensive array of award-wining design protective cases and skins deliver modern style, stunning design and smart protection.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


    The books, which currently focus on high school-level subjects but will later expand to cover the entire K-12 curriculum, can cost up to $14.99, and Apple is working with publishing companies such as Pearson, McGraw Hill, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and DK Publishing to make it happen.


    Students can enhance their mobility with accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich


    To create interactive textbooks and other digital books for the iPad, Apple has also introduced iBooks Author. The Mac application provides robust tools that let anyone build and publish interactive digital books for Apple’s iBooks store. It has the same look and feel as Apple’s iWork apps, and includes features like gallery support, 3D animation, video and interactive image support and more. Users can even insert custom Javascript or HTML5 code into eBooks using iBooks AuthorPaired with the fact that multiple universities have launched test programs for distributing iPads to students and this looks to be a recipe for success. And, when the iPad3 is released later this year, its predecessor will be that much more affordable and accessible to students.


    Now we just have to worry about early-onset carpal tunnel and “texting thumb” syndromes. But even there, with the number of hands free technologies out there, students could easily address those issues as well with the simple purchase of a few key accessories. God bless innovation!

    Apple marketing is sure to have their paws all over the latest IDG business survey which finds that the iPad is gaining explosive momentum in the business community all over the.


    Tablet Use - How Tablets are used


    The survey shows that 91% of IT and business professionals use their iPads for work. The kicker is that despite this high percentage of usage, only a quarter of these devices are issued by companies.


    A surprising 51% of those surveyed always use the device at work, almost as many who always use it at home (54%).


    Perhaps this is because professionals use the sleek tablet for media consumption in typical consumer behavior in addition to using it to increase their productivity on the go. The trends point to very high levels of use while they are on the road (a full 79% of IT professionals surveyed always use their iPad on the road). The smaller size of the device makes it easier to tote around when traveling; the array of accessories accessories such as; stylus & pensmicro SD memory cardsbatteriesdocking stationsBluetooth headsetsdata cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to makes this device more functionally efficient and performance rich.


    So where is the monumental shift of iPads replacing notebooks and desktops at the corporate level? It seems to be a different kind of shift, more of an evolution than a revolution. Most of those IT and business professionals surveyed said that despite their high level of iPad use, they have not abandoned their other desktop or laptop computers. iLuv and some other accessory manufacturers did roll out some great docking stations and workstations that may help increase the adoption rate of iPads for businesses.


    Global Media Tablet Shipment Forecast


    Apple itself should look into how to better leverage its products and the accessories to make it a clearer choice for consumers. We have brought Apple’s smartphones, media devices, and now slate computers into our homes and now into our offices. There is an incredible amount of loyalty to the brand, but their messaging has largely been centered on the consumer and its media uses. They have to help bridge those gaps and work on their solution selling where companies or individual professionals can buy a comprehensive solution to fit their changing needs.

    When Apple launched the iPhone 4S there were plenty of bystanders that were disappointed that the latest smartphone was not the elusive iPhone 5. The silver lining is that this prolonged release has given plenty of fodder for the tech gossip mill as we all speculate if the next generation iPhone will be drastically different.


    iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4 - Bigger Screen


    Latest reports note that Apple’s upcoming device will be slimmer than the iPhone 4S and iPhone handsets and will also strut some new tech as well. The iPhone 5 may have a quad-mode chipset from Qualcomm that will work on all 4G LTE and 3G networks which has the implication of making this unlocked cell phone device more widely available across mobile carriers.


    Giving credence to these details is a BGR exclusive last month that reported Apple’s intention to launch a completely redesigned iPhone in the fall. It will have an aluminum case and a rubber or perhaps plastic bezel that will protect and cover a new wrap-around antenna. Possibly more dependable accounts came from Morgan Stanley’s analyst, Katy Huberty, who noted that Apple sent a communication to clients last Friday. Those statements assured that Apple’s business will continue to grow even with a slowing demand for high-end smartphones. There is no question that the company’s strength is in its iTunes, iCloud and other proprietary technologies that marry customers so closely the OS platform.


    iPhone 5 Features Rumors


    Included in Huberty’s comments was the mention of Apple’s next generation tablet, the iPad3 which is slated to launch at some point in the first half of the year. With traditional pricing strategy in play, the iPad2 will be lowered in cost to attract additional customers to the iOS platform and to Apple’s strength in the tablet market.


    Surely these new smartphone and tablet devices will come with revamped and original peripheral accessories. Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!

Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.

    RIM Radically Slashes BlackBerry PlayBook PricesWhen Research In Motion rolled out its answer to Apple’s iPad, the Blackberry Playbook, a loyal RIM community of customers eagerly awaited the release of the Canadian company’s tablet.  While market anticipation was high, sales have shown, that the Blackberry's PlayBook has not stormed the tech world as hoped. In fact, the debut of the BlackBerry tablet seems to have marked a snowball effect of bad news and lost credibility for RIM in 2011.

    Before the jailbreak incident, this alternative tablet was poised as promising market success. However, Google’s Android OS based tablets the iPad 2 and iPad 3 took and continues to hold consumer mindset and the lion's share of the market. Apple's breakthrough marketing strategy was the catalyst that actually created the both the tablet market consumer demand. State of the art accessories? Customer driven innovations?  Unfortunately, RIM marketing campaign for the Blackberry PlayBook was not revolutionary enough for a discerning public. The bottom line of this failure in mediocrity was a $485 million loss in the third quarter of 2011 due to the PlayBook's sluggish sales.  Let our  trend setting fashionable cases and skin accessories express your unique style.  Make your mobile devices stand out.  Customize your look - how cool can you be?


     


    Throughout the holiday season mobile retailers and device manufacturers alike look to close out the year’s sales strong. Research In Motion was no different except that they started aggressively dropping prices in an attempt to clear out the excess inventory. These discounts did appear to help both RIM’s and their distribution partners move units of the QNX based tablet.

    RIM Radically Slashes BlackBerry PlayBook Prices


    With any luck, RIM can recoup some losses, move the tablets, and start out the new year on a higher note. To kick off these goals, they are making all three of their PlayBook models for $299. That is an outrageously steep $400 discount off the 64GB version. In addition to these discounts, the company would be smart to pair it with promoting the accompanying tablet accessories.


     


    If they can successfully lure in customers, upsell accessories and spin a silver lining around the cloudy RIM brand with the upcoming update... which is slated native email among other great improvements, the PlayBook and RIM can learn from 2011’s mistakes and launch itself back into an increasingly competitive market in an effort to carve out a niche.

    With the iCult in full force, be prepared to be inundated with news of the next generation iPad tablet that is rumored to be released between mid-March and mid-April of next year. A skeptic may ask “How do they know this?” Well. As of now this news is being cited as an anonymous source in Apple’s component supply chain by DigiTimes. The second generation iPad still has high production (in the 14 – 15 million unit range for 2011’s fourth quarter).  But come January, Apple will significantly drop its orders to suppliers to somewhere in the 4 to 5 million range. The supplier that gives its name and solid credence to these reports is Foxconn who has indicated that in the first quarter of 2012 they will build 9.5 – 9. 7 million iPad 3 units.  Protect your Apple devices with innovative protective solutions and premium electronic accessories from the industry's most leading bra


    So with all this talk of production, what will be new with the next iPad? Well, as of now, this next Apple tablet is said to be a bit thicker than the iPad 2 which would leave room to include a high resolution Retina Display. Earlier speculation thought the next generation iPad would launch in February, but this latest news from suppliers clarifies matters. It remains to be seen if this difference in size will affect the versatility of accessories.  Enhance your mobility... turn your device into a power tool.  Discover select accessories specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    Apple iPad 3 Rumors Abound


    Because of the exclusive BGR report last week which stated Samsung’s timeline in revealing its new tablet at the Mobile World Congress in February. This new Samsung tablet may give the newest addition to the Apple family some genuine competition as it will be featuring a Retina-topping display resolution as well.


    Translation? Samsung will have a first to market tablet with the Retina-topping screen. Likely to capture some market share and give Apple its first “run for its money” in the tablet sector.

    It's the most explosive development in the tablet market since the release of the original iPad and the latest apple tablet the iPad2. The launch of the Amazon Kindle Fire represents a major shot across the bow at Apple, according to a new ChangeWave survey which primarily targeted North American consumers.


    Tablet Demand - Plan to buy next 90 daysAccording to ChangeWave demand for tablets this holiday season is three (3) times higher than for the same period last year.


    It seems that today, shoppers have broadened their tablet interest from to include the Kindle Fire from Amazon... you can view more in this consumer demand survey


    The more interesting stat, perhaps, is that more than a quarter of respondents in ChangeWave’s survey who confirmed an imminent Kindle Fire purchase said they would buy the Amazon tablet in place of an iPad.


    “Tablet providers (Iconia, Xoom, Flyer, Galaxy Tab, PlayBook, etc) have failed to gain appreciable traction against iPad’s 67% market share, and iPad 2 should be a popular holiday purchase,” indicated officials at ChangeWave. “However, strong early Fire uptake seems likely, raising speculation Apple now faces a real tablet contender. Survey data says 26% of likely Fire buyers (i.e. of the 5%) say they will delay/put on hold iPad buying. Sustained Fire uptake and ‘buzz’ will depend on consumer/reviewer reactions to Fire’s user experience.”


    Tablet Planned PurchasingMoreover, when asked if they intended to purchase a tablet in the next 90 days, 14% of the 3,043 North American consumers surveyed by ChangeWave said yes. Only 6% said they intended to purchase a tablet in a similar survey conducted in August, and just 4% intended to purchase a tablet in November last year. ChangeWave’s new survey also found that 65% of respondents intended to purchase Apple’s iPad 2, while 22% were eying the Kindle Fire. Only 4% of respondents intended to purchase a Samsung Galaxy Tab, and no other tablet vendor garnered more than 1% of interest among those polled.  We expect consumers that want protect and personalize their devices to  invest in most fashionable and trendy tablet accessories with the latest technology to enhance functionality


    “The launch of the Amazon Kindle Fire is turning out be a real competitive threat to Apple, who until now has almost completely dominated the tablet space,” ChangeWave said. “But the most immediate impact of the Amazon device is on the rest of the competition, where the survey shows it wreaking a devastating blow to a range of second tier tablet manufacturers, including Motorola, RIM, Dell, HTC, H-P and Toshiba.”


    Amazon’s tablet may end up helping Apple in the long run. “The ChangeWave survey shows the Amazon Kindle Fire is going to leapfrog the competition and become the number two product in the tablet market, as long as it can provide a quality user experience,” ChangeWave said.

  • It looks as though the numbers of shipped iPad to tablet devices by Apple is not going to be slowing down anytime soon. The company has announced that they’re looking to ship a total of 20 million iPad two tablets throughout the third quarter of this year. Although there have been rumors going around previously that Apple was looking at releasing a revamped version of the iPad, which would be available at some point during this fall, it now appears that they are not going to be heading in that direction and that the rumors were actually false. At this point it is pretty hard to determine whether or not the rumors that come out about current Apple products are true or not. There’s been a lot of speculation as to what Apple’s next move is going to be regarding their popular tablet, and it appears as if a large amount of the rumors that have been going around have been false.


    Apple Will Ship More Than 20 Million iPad 2 Q3


    During the company’s previous earnings call, they stated that they sold a total of 9.2 5 million tablets during the June quarter. It should also be noted that they did fall little bit short of their overall demand in a number of different regions. What this means is that the company potentially could have sold more. The 20 million that is expected to be shipped during the third quarter proves that the company has a huge following for their tablet that is going to continue through the release of the iPad three, which at this point, if you believe the rumors, appears to be slated for sometime next year.


     


    It will be interesting to see if the future versions of the device continue to live up to the hype, or if they fall short of expectations. The Company has been consistently reaching and surpassing the expectations of most, and it looks as though they will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

  • Apple iPad 2 Launches in China
    Posted on May 9, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The Apple iPad 2 is a device that is renowned around the globe, and the recent launch of the device in China was met by huge crowds during its debut. The first customers lined up for a chance to purchase the device at about 5 PM local time in China. There were hundreds of people in line in some areas. Those who needed to use the rest room or eat were given one hour breaks, but if they took longer than that they were asked to go back to the back of the line.


     


    A number of scalpers could been seen outside of locations offering iPad 2’s at a slightly increased price. It looks as tough the white version of the device was much more popular than the black version, selling out much quicker in most locations.


     


    Similar crowds were seen during the US launch, and you can bet that when the device launches in other countries the same type of hype will be seen there as well. It is obvious that the iPad 2 will have successful launches nearly anywhere that it is released, based on the hype that has surrounded the launch in other locations.



    Apple has not yet released information about their iPad 2 sales, but did say that they sold more than 4.69 million units in the second quarter of this year. That number was down from the 7.33 million units that were shipped during the first quarter. Although a decline was expected, that particular decline was a bit steeper than most thought that it would be. The iPad 2 launch in China has rekindled the hype for the device, and should help the company with launches in the future. If China is any indication, the worldwide demand is higher than it ever has been for the iPad 2.
