Facebook Unveils Beta 'Questions' Feature ( facebo )

http://www.pcmag.com

Facebook on Wednesday introduced a beta program that lets users pose questions to the community at large. Facebook Questions will let its users ask questions on a variety of topics. Do you need restaurant recommendations? Want to know what the best smartphone is? Use the power of 500 million Facebook users to get your answer. Facebook is currently rolling out the feature to a limited number of users, but when it does launch, there will be an "Ask Question" icon next to a picture of a light bulb on top of your Facebook homepage. Any questions posted via Facebook Questions are public and visible to everyone on the Internet, Facebook said. All your friends and their friends will also be able to see your questions, so this might not be the best forum to make particularly personal queries. Facebook, however, envisioned the feature as a place to ask more innocuous questions. The site also added the option to include a poll or add a photo. Want to know what kind of flower is growing in your backyard? Take a photo and add it to Facebook Questions. Which game console should you buy – Wii or Xbox? Create a poll.

Have a question? Facebook may have an answer ( facebo )

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com

Facebook Inc. officially took the wraps off of its new question-and-answer feature Wednesday. Millions of people already ask their friends questions on the site each day. This way users can get “a broader set of answers and learn valuable information from people knowledgeable on a range of topics,” Black Ross, a director of product management at Facebook, wrote in a company blog post. The feature called Facebook Questions gives users a way to tap into the “collective knowledge” of more than 500 million people, Ross said. The questions, and the answers, will be public so anyone on the Internet can see them. The only way to ask a question privately is by posing it as a status update on your profile. That openness is reminiscent of other services that let people ask and answer questions. As we wrote earlier this week, major Internet players and start-ups are experimenting with how to quickly route people to the answers they want, some by connecting them with people with specific expertise or knowledge. Think of the effort as a way to give everyone their own personal search engine.

So Why Would You Jailbreak Your iPhone, Anyway?

http://blogs.barrons.com

With all this chatter about the Library of Congress making it kosher to jailbreak your Apple (AAPL) iPhone, let’s take a minute to look at what new things your newly liberated, warranty-violating device can now do. Or go see for yourself: Cydia, basically a mini-App Store for jailbroken iPhones, offers a range of both free and paid applications. Some examples: Wi-Fi Sync, $9.99, enables wireless syncing of your iPhone with ITunes.
Infinboard, $1.99, allow infinite vertical scrolling; effectively, you can put as many icons as you want on your home screen. SNES4Iphone, $7.99, lets you play old Super Nintendo games on your iPhone or Touch. Snappy, $1.99, is “a camera app for the iPhone that launches and is ready to take pictures in one second, without having to exit your currently running application.” MXTube: “The iPhone’s first native YouTube video downloader. Download your YouTube videos and watch them later.” WinterBoard: Add themes to your iPhone screens.

Go ahead and iPhone jailbreak, it's legal now

http://www.cnet.com

On Monday, the U.S Copyright Office ruled that jailbreaking an iPhone or other mobile device will no longer violate federal copyright law. Some iPhone owners no doubt cheered the news, and I join them in supporting the decision. "Jailbreak" entered the wireless lexicon soon after the iPhone first went on sale in 2007. Though some CNET readers have asked me if jailbreaking is the same as unlocking a handset, it's actually a different process. When you jailbreak an iPhone, you remove the Apple-imposed restrictions that prevent you from loading applications not sold through the iTunes App Store. Unlocking, on the other hand, only removes the restrictions that tie your iPhone to AT&T. So on the same phone, you can perform just one action or, if you prefer, both. I welcome the decision because I've always advocated for giving customers as many choices as possible. Yes, I understand that jailbreaking carriers some risks--you void your warranty and you could wind up with a bricked phone if you're not careful--but those risks, rather than breaking the law, should be the only consequences that consumers should face.
