We didn't even realize it when we were picking this week's stories, but we really are in a post-PC world. Every last article is about the mobile world. For better or worse, Steve Jobs has charted our future's course (or at least he was really adept at predicting it and getting Apple on that crest). So check it out, newshounds, it's an iOS-errific world.
Earlier this month, the Evasi0n software download allowed anyone with an iOS device to jailbreak, finally busting past a previously difficult roadblock in iOS 6.1. But according to one of the creators of the software, an upcoming update from Apple will likely shut Evasi0n down.
Let me say this first: I don't personally find jailbreaking to be a very good idea. A voided warranty, the possibility of using some potentially malicious, unauthorized app -- it's just not worth the headache. But all the same, I can appreciate why some iOS users may find the concept alluring. Today, a group of hackers have finally succeeded in releasing jailbreak software compatible with iPhone 5, iPad mini, and iOS 6.1.
