Jailbreak and Root will illegal soon?

Well if you familiar with this two terms then yes, all of us will be facing trouble soon! Back in July of 2010 the US government ruled that jailbreaking and rooting weren’t a crime as long as the intention behind them isn’t circumventing copyright.

Well the jailbreak and root will become illegal soon as soon as the ruling expiry, and not renewed. Well of course, if you don't want this happen, an organization called the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) has issued a petition that anyone can sign before February 10– the idea is to get enough objective opinions in favor of renewing the ruling. The EFF also wants to add tablets to the agreement.

iPad 3 will launch on February?

There is a rumors deduce that apple special event is likely to take place early next month, welcoming the launch of iOS 5.1 and with it, the arrival of the iPad 3.

Specs are expected to include a 2048 x 1536-pixel HD display, alongside battery life said to double that of the iPad 2 and a slightly thicker case to accommodate it. For the bargain hunters amongst you, the launch will also result in the inevitable price drop of iPad 2s, with each model presumably knocking $100 of its price point.
