A new hack is purportedly hitting the scene in a week or so that could let PS3 owners dump borrowed games onto the system's hard drive--or even an external drive--and play them. No optical discs, just straight gaming from an HD. Needless to say, this is a hack many users have been waiting for and one Sony has been trying to prevent.
The hack, which some are calling a jailbreak, similar to software that allows non-Apple-approved apps to run on the iPhone and iPad, comes in the form of a USB dongle called PS Jailbreak. When inserted into … Read more

Apple has quickly released a patch for the recently uncovered security flaw with how Mobile Safari handles PDF files in iOS 4.0.1 and earlier for the iPod Touch and iPhone, and iOS 3.2.1 and earlier for the iPad.

Yo, Netflix! When are you going to give us an iPhone version of your awesome iPad app? You said it was coming "this summer." According to my calendar, August is just about half over.
Since I'm an impatient pup, I decided to follow Lifehacker's instructions for watching streaming Netflix videos on an iPhone. It took some doing, but it works--and I'm just a wee bit giddy with excitement.
An updated version of Frash, an app that permits the otherwise banned Adobe Flash technology on Apple mobile devices, has been released. At the moment, however, it's only capable of handling relatively basic Flash animations (including, for example, the cult-classic Flash cartoon "Trogdor the Burninator"). The device in question must also first be "jailbroken," or hacked to remove protections and restrictions put in place by the hardware or software manufacturer.
The same group of hackers that exposed a flaw in the iPhone's mobile Safari browser last week just re-released an update to their popular ultrasn0w client that lets users jailbreak their iPhone 4 to use with any carrier regardless of contract.

Apple says that it has a fix for the browser security flaw discovered earlier this week on its iOS-powered devices.
After the iPhone Dev Team released the latest jailbreak software hack for the iPhone over the weekend, it became apparent that the way the jailbreak worked--via an iPhone's mobile Safari browser--that the phone has a security vulnerability when it comes to the way it loads PDF files from the Web.
On Wednesday an Apple spokeswoman said in a statement, "We're aware of this reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to … Read more
On today's show, Intel's FTC antitrust settlement, Darren Kitchen explains the iOS vulnerability that makes all your devices belong to PDF, and the feds admit they're storing some of your checkpoint body scan images ... for ... some reason.
