HP Chairman is a MAC User

A few days ago, Retures published an interview with HP executive chairman Ray Lane where he, as the photo above shows, was busy using a Mac. This is not the first time for Apple competitors caught using MAC devices in the public.

Another example for such thing, during a Microsoft Store opening in McLean, Virginia. As noted by CultofMac, the DJ brought to entertain the crowd was using a MacBook Pro cover by Microsoft sticker. Check out the photo below

Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 Released, The Fastest iOS 5 Jailbreak for Mac & Windows

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Apple, blog, Cydia, Featured, How To, iPhone, Jailbreak, Tutorials

Dev-Team pushed another update to Redsn0w jailbreak for iOS 5. The news came from @MuscleNerd as always via Twitter explaining that Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 for Windows and Mac is the fastest jailbreak solution for iOS 5. Total jailbreak time has been reduced to 80 seconds which was previously around 210 seconds. However, this will stretch the first time loading of Cydia after jailbreak, during which the stashing of applications will occur. An option in Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 preferences allows you  to choose whether you want redsn0w or Cydia to stash applications.

Via the official Dev-Team blog:

After some feedback on reddit, we’ve decided to make the initial jailbreak as quick as possible by no longer “stashing” the applications by default during the redsn0w run.  This reduces the time to actually perform the jailbreak from 210 seconds to 80 seconds (60 percent!).  However, you make up for much of that the first time you launch Cydia, which will then want to stash the applications.  You can choose whether you want redsn0w or Cydia to stash in the Preferences pane.
