And he said... BOOM!

Here we are again!
When Steve says something it usually happens...
So what do we have here?
A video.
Yes a stupid nasty video which can crash
ANY iPod/iPhone.
A different version of this video
can even crash many pc applications.
Apple was contacted and a mail
was sent to bugtraq mailing list.
Only a Forbes journalist showed up.
You will read about it on Forbes on monday.
Later that day the video will be posted
here for further "booms"
Clicking on the picture above after monday will crash your iPod/iPhone but it won't harm it.

Secrets..oh secrets!

Picture by erregiro

Secrets, hidden things, I really hate this.
It's common practice nowadays for companies
to sell devices that can do many things but
locked and constrained to do only one or two.
So, when you buy a device you don't know
the many things it can do.
Let's see an example:
Sierrawireless produces astonishing 3G cards;
AT&T disables the top 7.2mb/s speed and the
internal GPS (yes! AC881 and 881U do have
an internal GPS unit!).
On such units there are a lot of undocumented
commands (AT commands).
If you happen to have one of these cards,
try this from hyperterminal, putty or
any terminal program connected to the card
AT command port:
AT!HSDCAT=8 (for 7.2mb)
This will set the HSDPA category to 8.
The default is 6 (3.6mb/s)
There is also a command to set the HSUPA category:
AT!HSUCAT=5 (2mb/s upload)
AT!HSUCAT=3 (1.4 mb/s upload)

About the GPS, things are a little more difficult
but I could enable it on any card with a simple
one-click program.
Stay tuned.
