iPad 2… On the way.

So my birthday is coming up next month and my parents surprised me with the news of an iPad on its way. They live about 5 hours away from me and the unit was shipped to them, I’ll get my hands on it this weekend. And I’ll be sure to write a follow up post to this one with my thoughts on the device.

I never had the first iPad but I had the opportunity to play with it on a few occasions. I was impressed but in the end I decided I would be better off waiting for Apples 2nd try. FaceTime made my wait worth it. I’m not a big FaceTime user but occasionally its nice to phone home and talk face to face with the family.

I’m excited to have a much more lightweight device to replace a lot of what I’ve been caring my MacBook around for. Email and even some remote Linux work. I’ve been able to do a lot of work from iSSH but the screen is to small for everything I need to do. The larger screen real estate should make things a bit easier.

WordPress XSS Vulnerability

If you’re a WordPress blogger be sure to update to the latest 3.0.4 build as soon as possible, While no new features have been fixed a major security hole has been patched.
Basicly 3.0.3 allows users to insert comments with malicious code, the 3.0.3 WordPress only sanitizes lowercase HTML allowing a malicious user to pass bad code to obtain cookies of a logged in user.

For now if your still running 3.0.3 check all pending and new comments for base 64 code or JavaScript links and if you see some delete the comment right away.

See http://wordpress.org/ for the complete announcement from the wordpress team.

limera1n verified on 4.1

Verified limera1n Jailbreak works with iOS 4.1 today, I’ve been running 4.0.1 for some time, and I decided tonight to upgrade to 4.1 to get HDR Photographs and GameCenter on my device.  I was a tad worried about trying the upgrade but fairly confident I could revert to 4.0.1 since I took the time to store my SHSH keys with Cydia (http://www.saurik.com/).

So if your currently running 4.1 on your iPhone and want to jailbreak it for any reason at all feel free to use limera1n (http://limera1n.com/). Its extreamly easy to use simply run the application plug in your phone and click the “Make it rain” button. then follow the instructions on the app until it tells you its finished.

After the app tells you its done, your iPhone will be off. Turn it back on, and run the limera1n app, you can then install Cydia and uninstall limera1n from your iPhone. Happy Iphone hacking =)

Apples response to reception issues??? Free Bumpers for all! [Update]

Thats right during todays press conference. Steve Jobs announced that they will be providing a free bumpers or cases for everyone who has:

  • Already purchased an iPhone 4
  • Plans on purchasing one before September 30th
    • After Sep 30th Apple will re-evaluate the situation and ether extend the free case offer or provide a different solution.

Apple will offer a free iPhone 4 Bumper or other select cases to iPhone 4 customers. Details on how to order a free Bumper or case will be available soon on apple.com.

Apple also did some research and determined that all smart phones suffer from this phenomenon when  you cover the internal antenna. The only difference with the iPhone 4 is its so obvious given that the problem occurs over one of the black bands on the antenna of the phone.

What color bumper will you be picking? I’m going for white myself.

Update (8/10/20210): Apple didnt offer any color other than black for the free iPhone 4 Bumper deal. But I received mine about a week ago. I really like it but was also really hoping for a white one =(

How to forward your cell phone to your Google Voice phones before going to Voicemail.

So I decided the other day that I really don’t like getting voice mail on my phone. So I opted to forward my voice mail to my Google Voice account, I find it much more convenient to check my voice mail online, but after activating the feature in my Google voice settings, I discovered something even better than simple voice mail forwarding.

As you can see from the image Google Voicemail is activated on my mobile phone, if its not enabled on yours the link will enable you to activate it. Google will provide you a string of symbols and numbers to enter into your cell phone to enable your phone to forward its calls to Google in the event you do not pick up instead of going to voice mail.

However after enabling Google Voicemail on your phone if you click the edit button you will see a new option at the bottom of the page, Forwarding Options. witch will allow you to ether have calls you do not pick up on your mobile forwarded directly to Google Vociemail or have the call foarded to all your other phones first. In my case this means ringing to my Skype account first. The other day I left my phone in my living room while I was working at my desk, I never heard my phone ring but I still got the call once it was patched over to my Skype account.

So if your a Google Voice user, go check out this feature and let me know what you think of it.
