SHAtter exploit is not a new thing for those who are interested in iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G jailbreak on iOS 4.1. It is the same exploit which is being used to develop the upcoming jailbreak.
Initially pod2g discovered this exploit to jailbreak the iPad but after the launch of JailbreakMe, which can jailbreak up to iOS 4.0, this project was closed. Now Apple has patched the hole in iOS 4.1 and again SHAtter exploit is being tested to develop next generation jailbreak.
BlackBerry PlayBook, which was introduced yesterday in Research In Motion’s annual BlackBerry Developer Conference, is a hot new gadget. The analysts say that both PlayBook and Samsung Galaxy Tab will give a tough time to Apple’s iPad.
If we compare the features of these Tabs/Pads, PlayBook looks standing first. But one feature is still under debate and in fact it will decide the fate of PlayBook, i.e., Operating System. PlayBook will be running on BlackBerry Tablet OS developed by QNX which is a new OS for users and I think there won’t be much apps available for this system as well.
After the acquisition of Rock App, Saurik, the founder of Cydia App Store, is going to launch a redesigned Cydia App. One of important feature which is coming in new Cydia is integration with Facebook and Google.

An unofficial news is spreading that Apple has bought all the shares of a Swedish Company “Polar Rose” which is very famous in face recognition. Although iPhoto has already got the feature of face recognition, but it seems Apple wants to bring improvement in this technology and to introduce it in some other apps.
This is going to be the most spreading news of the month that Facebook is planning to launch its own OS for mobiles soon. The work has already been started, according to the sources. There are also rumors that the company is negotiating with third part manufactures for a Facebook Mobile.
Two high level Facebook employees, Joe Hewitt who is the key figure behind original Facebook app and Firefox, and Matthew Papakipos who was lead developer behind Chrome OS before leaving the Google for Facebook, are said to be working secretly on the project.
Rumors are floating around the web that Apple may have acquired Imsense Ltd, UK based company specialized in “Eye-Fidelity” technology, to introduce the HDR photos in newly announced iOS 4.1 for iPhone and iPod.
You will be thinking that iPhone 4 is much better than iPod Touch 4G especially when the criteria is performance. But this is not true according to this video shared by iSpazio.

In fact Apple gave its users much more than they were expecting. If you missed the live streaming of the event last night, here is the summary for our readers.
1. iOS 4.1:
This new version will be rolled out for certain iDevices models next week. iOS 4.1 fixes the proximity sensor issue and also brings new features like HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos. The much awaited game centre is also introduced in this version.

We will also be able to stream music and videos from iTunes to iOS devices with AirPlay ( a new name of AirTunes). A new feature “Wireless Printing” will also be introduced in this version.
