Mix: iPhone, Fake Steve, Bluetooth, iFixit

Hackintosh forums member Sassha claims to have successfully managed to “unlock” the iPhone by using a variety of detailed steps to trick the iPhone into using a non-AT&T SIM card.

The writer of the popular weblog The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs has been revealed. The New York Times reports that Forbes editor Daniel Lyons is the man behind “Fake Steve.” “I’m stunned that it’s taken this long,” said Lyons.

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group has announced unanimous approval of its latest standard, Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR. The new standard focuses on consistent scanning, pairing, security and authentication when using Bluetooth.

iFixit has launched its iPhone parts store, offering batteries, displays, case components, logic boards, and more, as well as an iPhone Fixit Guide that provides part replacement instructions.

Yup…about a month. That’s how long I figured it would take somebody to hack the iPhone to make it compatible with other carriers. No visual voicemail though. Personally, I cherish my VVM and wouldn’t trade onto another carrier just because of that!
