Dutch ads hint new iMac, MacBook, Mac mini
A trio of new Google AdSense ads that surfaced this weekend have alluded to new iMacs and Mac minis as well as a similarly redesigned MacBook. Searches on the Dutch version of Google with the right keywords have shown AppleInsider text ads for a "brand new," "ultra thin" iMac in 20- and 24-inch models and a "thinner, lighter and stronger" MacBook. A Mac mini ad touts the system as "faster and more affordable than ever" but sells it for 499 Euros where the lowest official Netherlands price is 599 Euros.
Two screen capture products compared
LittleSnapper v1.5.1 and Voila v2.1 are screen capture and markup applications, allowing users to capture their screen, desktop, application windows or web pages. Both utilities can also add callouts, including arrows, circles and instructional text. LittleSnapper is able to capture all web pages, regardless of the elements used but is limited in its adjustment tools and parameter controls. Conversely, Voila features expanded filters and adjustment tools but mishandled some Flash web pages. In our latest review our reviewer contrasts the two apps and elucidates the good and the bad parts of each program.
iPhone Dev-Team jailbreaks iPhone 3.1
Crackers at the iPhone Dev-Team began the weekend by releasing an updated version of PwnageTool that can jailbreak the iPhone 3GS. The 3.1.3 tool works only as long as the Apple phone was jailbroken with firmware 3.0 or 3.0.1 and won't work if the phone is already at Apple's official 3.1. The second-generation iPod touch can now also be de-restricted under the same firmware limits as the 3GS.
Palm webOS 1.2.1 fixes iTunes, Exchange
Palm today quietly circumvented Apple's protective measures again with webOS 1.2.1. Its second update in a week is the first to restore iTunes syncing for the Pre since iTunes 8.2 and will let the Pre take media from iTunes 9.0.1 as though it were a native device in the jukebox software. It even adds deeper integration and will now sync photo albums as well as lower-resolution versions that save space on the phone.
