Finally, those owners of CDMA iPhone 4 will not felt left out after a long wait and a wishful prayer. Hacker iH8Sn0w has updated the Sn0wbreeze tool, adding support for Verizon iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.7 and finally allowing those who have ditched AT&T to bring the magic of Cydia to their phones without the cumbersome need for tethering. Who says they’re doing this for tethering anyway.
At the moment this is a Windows-only affair, and you’ll have to get your hands on a copy of iOS 4.2.7 yourself. As usual, we urge readers to take extra precautions when jailbreaking as such act has a high potential of bricking your phone or cause other issues.

It appears that Apple may fix the iPhone tracking issue earlier than expected. Well, we hoped. BGR is reporting that the update is coming from Apple within the next two weeks, or possibly sooner, pending on how smooth the beta testing is. What’s more, the site says that it’s actually been sent an early version of the iOS update, and that it does indeed no longer back up the location database to iTunes — the size of the database is also said to be reduced, and it’s apparently deleted altogether when Location Services are turned off. But that’s not the only thing the update does. BGR noted that the update includes some extra battery life improvements as well, although it also notes that it hasn’t actually tried it out just yet — it is promising additional details, though.

Looks like things aren’t going well at all for Sony as things keep getting shittier for the Japanese console giant. After their PSN was attacked two weeks ago, now Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) has also fall victim to yet another breach. According to Wall Street Journal, Sony has confirmed that the latest attack has already taken access of personal information for a staggering 24.6 million accounts, and they include names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, gender, Date of birth, login ID, and hashed passwords. Woot! Regardless, SOE’s online services were taken offline earlier today.

An exciting Labour day at down under, as the Australian V8 Supercar series at Barbagallo started with a bang, and a big one. Well, to be accurate, the game didn’t even manage to get into the first corner when the flags were waved.
When the green flag waved, driver Karl Reindler stalled his Holden Commodore and was rammed from behind by Steve Owen. Owen had already accelerated to almost 95 mph by the time he came into contact with Reindler.
The enormous impact was enough to make Reindler’s Holden explode into flames, and sent both parties spinning into the infield. Luckily, Reindler was able to find his own way out of his stricken Holden, and somehow escaped with only minor burns to his hands and face. Owen was unharmed in the wreck, though officials sent him to the infield medical center after he complained of soreness.
Consider him lucky that soreness is the only thing he felt from a 95-0 impact and escaping a guzzling fire ball.
