Google has introduced ‘Search with My Location’ for iPhone 3.0. Now if someone wants to know which jazz clubs are near him, he don’t have to specify a location – he just search for “jazz clubs”.
At Google, we want to make searching the world around you as easy and informative as searching the web.
When you visit www.google.com from Safari on your iPhone 3.0, you can choose to turn on My Location by tapping on the link on the homepage. When you tap on the “update” link, your location will be updated and displayed right there on the homepage. Whenever you want to refresh your location, just tap the “update” link. Testing this in New York, my search for “jazz clubs” returned a many places within walking distance.
Google won’t use your location in search unless you explicitly opt to choose it. And you can always disable the feature from Preferences at the bottom of the homepage.
Search with My Location from Safari is available in English in the US and UK. Other country and language combinations will be integrated soon. You can also search with My Location using Google Mobile App, available from the iPhone App Store.
A blogger going by the name of George Hotz has posted what looks like the appropriate tool to jailbreak an iPhone 3G S. Which means that first jailbreaking application for the iPhone 3GS is now available. Have a look at the jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS.
To get started:
Go to purplera1n.com.
Make sure you have windows(but not 7), the latest iTunes installed, and an iPhone 3GS with 3.0 firmware.
Connect your iPhone normally.
Click “make it ra1n”.
On bootup, run Freeze, the purplera1n installer app.
Tutorial has a link from purplera1n site. Make a backup of everything before running. You can Reboot, if Cydia doesn’t show up after running Freeze. If you need help email email@example.com and attach your purplera1n.log file. The purplera1n jailbreak will free your iPhone from the limitations imposed on it by AT&T and Apple.
George Hotz wrote on his blog:
That isn’t how the game is played. We release, Apple fixes, we find new holes. It isn’t worth waiting because you might have the “last” hole in the iPhone. What last hole… this isn’t golf. I’ll find a new one next week.
The author of Purplera1n for iPhone 3GS concluded his post thanking everyone involved in the making of the jailbreak tool. Hotz said that the binary size of Purplera1n is smaller than C++ Hello World.
No 20MB thing that needs to be torrented. And no IPSW to download. This is how jailbreak should be!,
After jailbreaking, a user will be able to customize the iPhone with home-screen wallpapers and third-party ringtones.
iPhone 3.0 is officially launched and new app is ready. The two main reasons to be excited about Evernote for iPhone 3.0: and the even greater stuff that will be added in the near future.
Let’s check out what’s new? I have discussed those features which I felt necessary, you can checked out more features here.
The data synchronization part of the application is rewritten to take advantage of the new iPhone 3.0 capabilities, this will cause your info about all your notes to be synced locally on the device. You can scroll through thousands of notes without interruption and without ever seeing the dreaded “load 25 more” message.
New data handling functionality means that there’s no longer any need for a “Pending” tab — pending notes are now displayed in the normal note list and you can edit them at any time, even before they’ve been synced!
Where in the world?
You can push the “pin” button at any time to see all of your notes displayed on a map. The numbers indicate how many notes you have in a particular area, and zooming in will break up the groups until you can see each individual note as a pin.
The note views lets you group your notes by date, title, notebook, city or country. You can also instantly jump to a different group by taping the index bar on the right of the note list or scroll your finger over the index bar to fly through your notes at breakneck speed.
You can search through your notes and we’ve made that better as well. Advanced search options are now easier to use and many types of searches can be performed without ever having to touch the server, so they’re really fast.
Cinema-quality Landscape View
Mercy for your fingers
The steps and small buttons re eliminated when making snapshot and camera roll notes. Now you can snap a picture and send it to Evernote with just a couple of clicks.
Plays nice with others
Evernote for iPhone 3.0 now supports in-app integrations with iPhone apps from other developers. Several exciting Evernote-aware apps should be launching really really soon.
General improvements and bug fixes
This is our third major version of Evernote for the iPhone, so there’s a lot of improvements under the hood.
