This has been a rough few days for Apple.  A ‘goto fail’ hole appeared in the OS that lets people defect a security server key which lets them do .. well not sure.  From a quick read of the code, seems like if you can get a false handshake to work then depending on the… Read More

Funny enough, a few days back I wrote a post on how I thought my iphone 4 looked small compared to my Samsung.  Too small in fact.  Sure I can still use it, but the difference is very noticeable.  Then later that even Mashable broke a story with leaks images of the iphone 6 that… Read More

I have been using the iphone 4 for a long time now.  It works well.  I had it jailbroken and customized to do what I want. Never did update to the iPhone 4S and also skipped out on the five because I was too invested in the old docking station.  So much so, I had… Read More
