iPhone 4 jailbreak unlocks FaceTime via 3G and a malicious exploit

http://www.gottabemobile.com

News of a successful and easy-to-apply jailbreak for the iPhone 4 and other iOS devices lit up the Internet, followed quickly by news of patches for broken functionality, FaceTime calling over 3G, and a malicious exploit with an opponent named Warner. Kicking things off was the launch of JailbreakMe.com (via Engadget), a website that jailbreaks (unlocks root access) to your iDevice up to the iPhone 4 running the latest version of iOS. I don’t know exactly how it works, but it all happens through the Safari web browser, which means exploiting a security flaw to initiate the process. You do risk bricking your iDevice and/or voiding your warranty with a jailbreak, not to mention leaving your device vulnerable if you don’t change the root password. There’s no longer a law against jailbreaking your iPhone, but that doesn’t eliminate all the risks involved. If all that raises a red flag for you, good. I really don’t advocate any hacking that’s beyond your ability to understand, so just make sure you’re cool with everything good and bad before taking the plunge. On the good side of things, jailbreaking your iPhone 4 enables FaceTime calls over 3G using an app called My3G.

JailbreakMe Exploits Serious iPhone Security Flaw

http://www.pcworld.com

JailbreakMe makes the process of jailbreaking the Apple iPhone much simpler and less intimidating. Just visit a Web site on the iPhone, and voila! Jailbroken iPhone. Think about that for a minute, though. The simple act of visiting a Web site is able to fundamentally alter the core functionality of iOS. Since the dawn of the iPhone, hackers have developed various tools and processes to enable users to circumvent the controls and restrictions put in place by Apple. In the wake of the United States Copyright Office ruling that jailbreaking the iPhone is technically legal--at least from a copyright and DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) perspective--having a tool that can accomplish it simply by visiting a Web site is awesome for less technically savvy iPhone owners. However, if JailbreakMe is capable of unlocking the iPhone operating system by taking advantage of a flaw in the way the iPhone renders Adobe PDF files, then other applications can also exploit that same flaw for less-benevolent goals. What JailbreakMe illustrates is that the iPhone has a serious security issue that Apple needs to address.For companies that allow the iPhone to connect with network resources

Fring-Skype iPhone slanging match: Telcos v freetards

http://www.theregister.co.uk

Analysis P2P VoIP network Skype and client developer Fring have engaged in an epic slanging match after Fring's implementation of mobile-data video calling on the iPhone appeared to result in its ousting from Skype. At present Apple's own software only allows video calling on the iPhone 4 - the first iPhone to feature a user-facing cam - via the phone's Wi-Fi connection to another iPhone 4. This generally ensures decent call quality; it also placates the mobile networks, who are already struggling to deal with the surge in mobe-data demand precipitated by Apple phones (and to a lesser extent, other smartphones). Fring's app allows video calling between most smartphones over 3G mobile links as well. However, Fring makes use of other VoIP and IM networks - in particular, of Skype - to actually let its users get in touch with each other, rather as some apps will integrate different IM networks.

Skype on iPhone: Does it Save Money?

http://www.pcworld.com

Sticking it to The Man just got a little easier with Skype for iPhone's addition of multitasking support and elimination of plans to charge for calls over 3G. But can the ability to receive Skype calls any time really save you money? Let's look at the numbers and find out. For People Who Don't Talk Much: AT&T won't let you get an iPhone data plan without voice minutes, so at the very least, you've got to pay $40 per month for 450 minutes. If you're not routinely talking for longer than that, Skype probably won't help you. Still, consider having long phone conversations over Skype just to reduce the chances of going over 450 minutes. This will help you collect rollover minutes as well. For People Who Talk a Lot Things get interesting when you regularly exceed 450 minutes per month. To truly replace your expensive voice plan, you'll need both a Skype subscription and an online number (formerly SkypeIn), which any phone can call. A subscription for unlimited U.S. and Canada Skype calls costs $3 per month, and the number costs $12 for three months after a 33 percent discount for having a subscription.

Skype Updates iPhone App with Multitasking, Promises Free 3G Calls

http://www.pcmag.com

Skype on Wednesday announced that it had added multitasking and improved call quality on its iPhone app. Taking advantage of iOS 4's ability to selectively multitask, Skype's app can now receive calls while working with another app or while on the home screen. Users potentially can also switch from Skype to another app while on a phone call.
The app update also includes graphics that take full advantage of the iPhone 4's retina display and says it "allows you to make calls with high quality sound." No further details are given about either one of these two attributes, but they are welcome. Skype also announced that it no longer had plans to charge extra for making calls over 3G. We previously reported that Skype had planned to charge for calls made over 3G sometime in the future. It's possible they received enough negative response from the announcement to change their plans. We recently reviewed Skype for iOS and awarded it 3.5 stars. Two of the major drawbacks Contributing Editor Jamie Lendino had with the app were no background calling and the premise of paying for 3G calls in the future. Since both of these issues are addressed with the latest update
