The latest update to Alfred adds a selection of smart new features, one of which is a new way of grabbing selected text from any Mac app and pushing it straight into one of your other Alfred actions – such as a web search, for example.

It’s a cool little feature but a little hard to find, so here’s how to set it up. You’ll need to have paid for the Alfred Powerpack to make it work.
In Alfred’s preferences, go to Hotkeys and click the little plus symbol at the bottom-right. In the list that appears, click General, then Show Alfred (as shown ab

Now you’ll be able to configure an alternative way of invoking the Alfred command window.

At the top, you can choose a keyboard combo. I usually call up Alfred with Command+Space, so for this alternative I’ve set up Shift+Command+Space.
This grabs whatever text I’ve selected and puts it into Alfred. The other options below the key combo setting allow you to add a keyword in front – in my case, I’ve used the letter ‘l’, which is already set up inside Alfred as a shortcut to Google’s “I’m Feeling Lucky”.
Result? I can select text anywhere, hit four keys in rapid succession, and see the top Google result. (Which, despite Google’s flaws in other areas, is still almost always the one I want.)
Got any useful Alfred tips or shortcuts of your own? Share them in the comments.

The Three Best Alternative iTunes Icons So Far

With their touch-screen interface and small display size (iPad aside), iDevices aren’t known for their addiction to ambitious action titles. Regardless, that’s just what’s on offer here. Set in a vibrant Japanese feudal environment, players will assume the role of your generic samurai character, destined to right a few wrongs using the pointy side of his blade.
Combat is kept relatively simple down to necessity more than any other factor. Three attack buttons only are afforded to the player — two covering quick and more considered strokes of the blade, one used to evade.

Before you break out the Pop Tarts, though, be aware that Samurai II: Vengeance suffers from some perennial touch-screen problems. Too much of the screen can be obscured by the process of simply moving around each stage, while puzzles (such as they are) must employ only one generic action button and are hence neutered. Such cel-shaded graphics, though, do play entirely to the device’s strengths, giving many a reason to play on.

George Francis Hotz (born October 2, 1989), alias geohot, million75 or simply mil is known for working with other people to unlock the iPhone, allowing the phone to be used with other wireless carriers, contrary to AT&T and Apple's intent.

He is also noted for jailbreaking the iPhone OS and developing a method for cracking the PlayStation 3.
On July 13th 2010: Hotz posted a message on his Twitter account stating that he was giving up trying to crack the PS3 any fur

Hacking Apple iDevices :

According to Hotz's blog, he traded his unlocked 8GB iPhone to Terry Daidone, the founder of Certicell, for a Nissan 350Z and 3 8GB iPhones. Hotz said he wanted to give the iPhones to the other members of the team who created the hack with him. Hotz's hardware based unlocking technique has largely been replaced by software unlocking that does not require dis-assembly of the iPhone.

On February 8, 2008: Hotz developed the software unlock for the iPhone's new Bootloader Version 4.6 that was previously only achievable with a "testpoint based hardware unlock".

On July 3, 2009: Hotz announced purplera1n, the first public software exploit for jailbreaking the iPhone 3GS.

On October 11, 2009: Hotz released blackra1n, a jailbreak for all iPhones and iPod Touches. The only caveat was that the iPod touch third generation would need a "tethered jailbreak" to work.

On October 25, 2009: Hotz released Blackra1n RC2, an update to his previous blackra1n utility. This version allows MC Model iPod Touch 2G (8GB iPod Touch third generation) and new-bootrom iPhone 3GS users to jailbreak their iPod touches as well. (tethered jailbreak only)

On October 31, 2009: Hotz announced the impending release of Blackra1n RC3, this version will include blacksn0w which will allow SIM unlock of all iPhones using Blacksn0w RC1. Blacksn0w was originally scheduled for release  

on November 4, 2009: but due to positive test results it was moved to the 3rd. Blacksn0w was the #1 trending topic on Twitter as requested by GeoHot only moments after its release.

On April 13, 2010: Hotz established a website for his newest jailbreak software limera1n.
Limera1n was rumored to be his newest jailbreaking tool.

On June 24, 2010: Hotz wrote on Twitter that he had no plans to release a new jailbreak. He has told people looking for a jailbreak release to 'keep an eye on Spirit, the currently used program for 3.1.x jailbreaking, which lead to the belief there are plans to update the software to allow iOS 4.0jailbreaking. This however has not had a release date confirmed.

On July 10, 2010: Hotz published that he had been able to jailbreak an iPhone 4 running iOS 4.0. As evidence, he provided a picture of the device executing Cydia. This post has since been edited and blocked from public view, in which Hotz stated that the picture was "quite obviously fake", addressing himself to "the haters".

On July 13, 2010: Hotz announced his retirement from iDevices hacking, saying that it's not fun as it used to be, and people were taking too serious something he used to do just as a distraction.

On October 8, 2010: Hotz confirmed he was releasing a Jailbreak on 10/11/10; one day after therelease of GreenPois0n. He also posted a picture of limera1n running on an iPhone 3G S, iPod Touch fourth generation, iPhone 4.

On October 9th: Hotz released limera1n Beta 1 - without support for the 3GS (due to a problem with the bootrom) Fixed. Additionally, the exploit has been found to be moderately buggy, even on supported devices. This suspended the release of the SHatter exploit in the form of greenpois0n, due for release the next day. On the limera1n website, he claims this was to make the Chronic Dev team "do the right thing" - presumably implying that they should save their jailbreak exploit for fifth generation devices. He later went on to release three more betas, containing support for iPhone 3GS models and iPod Touch 2G models, along with various bug fixes and other stability enhancements.

Personal life

Hotz grew up in Glen Rock, New Jersey, where he attended the Bergen County Academies, a magnet public high school. He has one sister, Julia Hotz, alias "Fifty". He currently attends the Rochester Institute of Technology studying biotechnology.

Assistant Extensions is a great new tweak that will allow you to open apps, send tweets and more via Siri. There are more and more tweaks released via Cydia every they and these allow jailbroken iDevices to get the most out of their devices. You could say that jailbreaks actually allow iOS to run the way it always should have run.

Since the release of the untethered jailbreak for A5 devices there have been more and more Siri tweaks released. Apple's voice recognition software has been the centre of so many developers attention since it launched with the iPhone 4S last Oc

tober. Jailbreaking allows using to enjoy some great Siri perks and these include allowing simple SBSettings-like commands to be activated using Siri. There are many more Siri tweaks including SiriToggles and the soon to be released Sireet which will allow users to send Tweets using Siri.

AssitantExtensions has been released however and this allows users to send Tweets, activate SBSettings toggles and open various different apps without having to touch your screeen. This new tweak is available free of charge from the BigBoss repository. If you have SiriToggles the developer of AssitantExtensions does recommend that you remove it even though no conflicts between the two have been reported. The features of AssitantExtensions do however supersede SiriToggles so you won't need it anyway.

If you plan on downloading AssitantExtensions you will need a jailbroken iPhone and there are plenty of tools that you can use to do this including Absinthe, Sn0wbreeze and more.

How to Sync Firefox Bookmarks with iPhone and iPad is a post from:
As such, it’s not possible to sync Firefox bookmarks with iPhone or sync iPhone bookmarks with Firefox because the iTunes library doesn’t have an option for that. You can however sync Safari bookmarks.
Of late, it’s been getting quite clear that quite a lot of users still prefer Firefox on their PCs or Laptops. The average household has become a combination of large-screen browsing (on PCs) and small-screen ones (on smartphones). When this is the case, syncing bookmarks becomes tou

gh if you used Firefox on the PC and Safari on the iPhone. But there are two ways you can solve this problem of syncing.
Here’s how to sync Firefox bookmarks with iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch:
Method 1 – Export / Import
In this process, you will export the Firefox bookmarks, import them to Safari and just sync. As simple as that.

On your PC, where you have bookmarks on Firefox, just export the bookmarks as HTML.
To do this, go to Bookmarks → Show All Bookmarks.
Now, choose the Import and Backup → Export HTML…
Save the file to someplace you can access fast.
Now, open Safari.
File – Import Bookmarks
Choose the file you just saved.

Now, just connect your iPhone to the PC and Sync via iTunes. Make sure Sync Safari Bookmarks is checked (under the Info tab for your iPhone on iTunes).
Method 2 – Firefox Home Firefox Home is a simple app you can download on your iPhone. (it’s designed for iPhone, not iPad, but works on iPad too). It works via Firefox Sync (which is a service that syncs your personal bookmarks and stuff on your local desktop Firefox to the cloud) so you will need to have Firefox Sync enabled on your PC.
Firefox Home is not a browser – but a syncing service which connects and syncs all your bookmarks to your iPhone. You can then open them via Safari on your smartphone. Firefox Home is available as a free download on the iTunes App Store. It comes straight from Mozilla Corporation, so it’s highly trusted.
Interestingly, Firefox Home can also keep track of your Tabs and comes with search feature that helps you search from your history, bookmarks etc. easily.
