If you, like me, are an Apple fan since a long time, you may have owned many i-Products. Some of them may have been lost, stolen, gifted or still in use. Do you remember about all of them? Do you have a list of your Apple devices?

If you have been diligent you may have registered these products, Mac Books, iPod, iPhones, iMacs or iPads in the Apple webpage to check they guarantee status or to submit a request for support.

Did you ever wanted to have a full list of your Apple Registered Products? Did you ever noticed that logging into the Apple Support there is no way to obtain such list?

Now our wish has been fulfilled! Apple has just inaugurated a new support page called My Support Profile that among the usual support services we have been used to see is listing as well the brand new ‘Product Pane’ where it’s possible to register, list, delete and give nicknames to all of your Apple product!

When I’ll be 90 years old who knows how many devices I’ll have listed?
Maybe this is a new advertising strategy that will lead contests between people to demonstrate their fidelity to Apple!

How-To enable VoiceOver feature in your jailbroken iPad

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Supposed that we are in possession of a jailbroken iPad if we want to enable VoiceOver feature in the iPad there is not a Cydia package unfortunately.

We can anyway accomplish to this task manually following three simple steps:

Step 1 – preparation

You need to install and enable the OpenSSH service first. Once this is done you need to log into the iDevice via command-line or via Cyberduck or any through other SSH client. Unless you changed them for security reasons (as suggestes) the passwords for the root and mobile users are well known:

  • username: root, password: dottie
  • username: mobile, password: alpine

Step 2 – configuration

Once logged into the iPad you need to reach and edit (with ‘vim’ or any other text-editor) the file K48AP.plist at this path:

/System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/K48AP.plist

and add the following line :

<key>voice-control</key>
<true/>

as shown below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>capabilities</key>
<dict>
            <key>voice-control</key>
            <true/>
            <key>720p</key>
             <true/>
      .........

Step 3 – conclusion

As last you need to reboot your iPad, after that you can activate the VoiceOver feature control, holding for a few seconds the ‘Home’ button.. and start speaking!!

How-To officially and legally unlock your iPhone with O2

If you own a Pay-As-You-Go or O2 contract iPhone and you want to unlock it to be able to use different SIMs from UK or from foreign countries when you’re off for work or holidays you need to fill in O2’s standard unlocking form.
You’ll receive a text confirmation of your request. Unlocking will take up to 14 days.

When you have a non-O2 SIM in the iPhone, plug it into iTunes and iTunes will confirm the iPhone has been unlocked.

Additionally visit the Unlock my iPhone page from O2 official website.
