Earlier this year, Apple seeded iOS 4.3 for Apple TV owners. Among the update’s new features was the ability to stream previously-purchased TV shows from iTunes to the living room via Apple’s new iCloud service.

We are now going on two months (five, if you were using developer betas) since Apple released iOS 5, and we still don’t have a viable jailbreak. There have been tethered and semi-tethered solutions available, but not an untethered jailbreak tool.
The worst part is that we haven’t known how close hackers have been to releasing anything, until tonight. The Chronic Dev Team has finally broken its silence regarding the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak, and has revealed a new plan for finding future iOS exploits… Read More

And the number of success stories has multiplied over the last few years, as both the iOS platform and App Store have grown exponentially. Needless to say, business is good. So good, in fact, that more and more people are looking to get into app development… Read More

After a little bit of a delay, iTunes Match was released to the public today. iTunes Match is a service that’s built into the latest version of iTunes. It lets you match, upload, and play music on a variety of different devices.
This is an extremely cool service that allows you to take your entire iTunes library with you on the go, even if you have a measly 8GB iPhone.
