Samsung Galaxy S II to fly 100,000 ft above Nevada, fails to land in US

While many in US are still waiting for the popular Samsung Galaxy S II to be officially announced here, Samsung is trying to get as much attention possible for the big event. This time, the Space Balloon project will carry the high tech cargo as high as 100,000 feet somewhere above Nevada and will send back some live streams with what it sees. In the process, Samsung will get priceless media coverage and prove how much more resistant their products is compared with everything else 😉

That being said, I have a feeling more press coverage is not necessarily what Galaxy S II needs. What it does need though is a way to convince the lazy US carriers to support it officially already, ideally for a reasonable price. It was already announced in Canada after all for around $170 with contract. Rumors have it that AT&T will get it in August under code name Attain, but we’ll believe it when we actually see it. And you can be sure we’ll review the AT&T version as soon as we can have it in our hands.

iOS 4.3.4 out, nothing useful but closes the PDF jailbreakme 3.0 hole

With no other purpose other than to close the recently discovered and hugely popular security hole used in the recently released jailbreakme.com 3.0 jailbreak, Apple just launched iOD 4.3.4. Unless you have some self esteem issues if you do not have the latest update, my advice is to stay away, even if you don’t intend to jailbreak right now. Also, always behind version wise, Verizon’s iPhones get version 4.2.9 with the same fix.

So again, the only purpose of Apple’s new iOS versions is to close the existing security hole that allows the current jailbreak. You have been warned!

In case you were living under a rock, the new Jailbreakme 3.0 is a userland jailbreaking method that for the first time worked on the iPad 2 devices (and everything else) running iOS 4.3.3.
