It appears iCloud is starting to happen. iOS 4.3.3 firmware update for Apple TV went live a few minutes ago, and it quietly delivers some very cool features. The update adds support for the video hosting service Vimeo, which is cool, but here is the big wow: you can now buy TV shows through Apple TV, instead of just renting them.
Since the Apple TV has negligible built-in storage, when you purchase a TV show through the set-top box, it is presumably streaming to you from a cloud-based storage locker. Which is full of awesome.
The history of jailbreaking on the iPhone is a long and complicated one, but twice in the past the hackers have been able to make it a one-tap affair courtesy of a website called JailbreakMe.com. Now make that three times, because iOS 4.3.x devices can now make the magic happen, even on an iPad 2.
Summer is icumen in, as the poet of olde once wrote, and maybe you spent a lot of time this week out doors and weren't at your computer, glued to the latest in Mac and Apple news. Maybe you were off camping or exercising or gardening or sunbathing or who-knows-what-ing. Well, if you were, and if the rain drove you back inside, have a seat right here, that's it, pull up a chair, sit down, and take a look at the news we have for you.
