| Now I have cyanogenâs ROM running on my phone. It is a very 
| nicely customized rom with good performance. The improvements 
| in the ROM includes Multitouch support, better camera options, 
| Faster applications, 5 desktops etc. Anway I am addicted to 
| Android. Trying out more and more hacks these days.



Hackers Unlock iPhone 3G

,----[ Quote ]
| You buy and unlocked iPhone 3G in a few markets, but that's not the case for
| most regions, including - as you all know - the U.S. Well, it took a bit
| longer than expected, but it appears hackers have finally cracked the latest
| version of the iPhone.
| The iPhone Dev Team plans to release an iPhone 3G unlocking procedure and
| software on New Year's Eve. They've codenamed it yellowsn0w. To implement
| yellowsn0w you'll have to already have jailbroken (baseband 2.11.07 or
| earlier) your iPhone 3G to run third-party applications.


iPhone Linux Hack: What It Means

,----[ Quote ]
| Until now, few people have bothered to replace operating systems running on
| their smartphones, the way they already replace their Windows with Linux on
| PCs. Mobile operating system vendors like Microsoft grew their market shares
| by striking deals with handset makers and carriers to integrate their
| software into the carriersâ line-ups.


Linux finally loaded onto iPhone!

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux fans who have been waiting for Linux to come the iPhone and iPod Touch
| need wait no longer â the breakthrough has finally been made, years after
| Linux found its way onto earlier iPod models. Thereâs a way to go before the
| project is mature, with plenty of things, including touchscreen support, yet
| to come. Still - Linux on the iPhone is here, at last!


First steps for Linux on iPhone

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux on the iPhone project has released the first results of its work.
| The current port of Linux includes a bootloader, OpeniBoot, which allows the
| user to select booting either the iPhone OS or the Linux port. This first
| port is very limited though, as the demonstration video that has been
| released shows, there is no touchscreen support for interacting with the
| device; instead a USB console is used to type commands.


The iPhone Is Now Doomed

,----[ Quote ]
| I cannot claim to be a developer, but I have been watching the whole iPhone
| application development issues with interest. As of todayâs news, it appears
| that the iPhone development process is like this:
|    1. Ask Apple for permission to make an application.
|    2. Sign a non-disclosure agreement.
|    3. Invest time and money into an iPhone application.
|    4. Ask Apple for permission to sell or give away your application.
|    5. If Apple says YES: start making money and hope Apple does not change
|       their minds.
|       If Apple says NO: shut up and deal with it. If you say anything, Apple
|       can sue you, further raising the wasted investment money.


iPhone to become openPhone ?

,----[ Quote ]
| Moving to an open source platform like Linux however would increase the pool
| of available developers, and serve to drive down these costs, which hopefully
| will lead to better lower priced third party applications.


Google Exec: Android To Beat iPhone

,----[ Quote ]
| Rich Miner even went after Apple's handheld darling.  "Once you have devices
| out there from Motorola, HTC, Samsung, and so on, there's a much larger
| potential market on Android than for the iPhone," he said.  "[T]here's a
| single manufacturer, it's targeted at a particular demographic, and it falls
| far short of the 1 billion mobile phones sold every year worldwide."


iPhone vs. Android : An Open Source Devs Perspective

,----[ Quote ]
| According to Andrea Gazzaniga, software development manager at mobile open
| source vendor Funambol the answer is not entirely clear. In a rambling
| overflow presentation at AjaxWorld's iPhone Sumitt, Gazzaniga attempted to
| outline the differences and similiaraties between iPhone and Android.
