Apple asks Toyota to pull jailbreak ad campaign

Toyota recently launched a publicizedĀ campaign that placed a special Scion-branded theme pack in the Cydia store for jailbroken iPhone users to enjoy. The move was seen as progressive considering Toyota’s decision to embrace the jailbreak community, but a new report reveals that the theme pack has since been pulled from Cydia. According to the report, Toyota’s advertising agency claims Toyota was contacted by Apple and asked to have the theme removed from Cydia. Toyota complied, of course, and had its agency contact the theme’s publisher to have it taken down immediately. Apple has been openly opposed to the jailbreak community in the past, and this latest move hardly comes as a surprise. More →

Vista on Your iPhone

If Steve Jobs were dead, he would be turning over in his grave. As it stands, Stevie is alive so he probably just sufferer a massive coronary. Hey iPhone owners – do you find that there is entirely too much time between crashes and freezes on your iPhone? VistaPerfection 2.0 might not help you in that department but it sure will make your handset look like the bug catcher we all know and love. The installation comes with Vista wallpapers, graphics, sound effects and over 90 Vista icons. It even simulates Vista’s sidebar and start menu. We’re not saying that the iPhone is perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but why anyone would do something like this is a bit beyond us. If you’re a Vista addict and begrudgingly picked up an iPhone but always loathed its clean UI, well then by all means click on through.
