The much anticipated iPad 3 is on the way and predicted to be released early to mid next year. It is thought that it will have a pixel density of 264PPI and a native resolution of 2,048×1,356. This would follow on from the iPhone 4 and 4S’ exceptional resolution which out runs those of other high end smartphones. However this provisional idea is depending on weather the Korean manufactures (Samsung and LG) can mass produce this piece of hardware. Read More

We have been wondering about this a lot too, but “FightThePowersThatBe” just shared the idea out loud on Reddit. Starting from iOS 4, Apple introduced multi-tasking for iOS, and from then on it allowed you to double tap the home button to switch between Apps.

We were all disappointed when Siri wouldn’t appear on our iPhone 4 and iPad, but now 2 young hackers, euwars and rudolf77 have managed to come up with a jail break for the iPod touch so it can run Apple’s new assistant.
