Man Pleads Guilty To Hacking 120K iPad Subscribers

A 26 year old man has recently pleaded guilty to writing code used to steal e-mail addresses and information from over 100,000 Apple iPad subscribers from AT&T computer servers.

Test Your BAC From Your Watch

The new breathalyzer from Tokyo Flash, allows you to simply blow in your watch to get a Blood Alcohol Content rating before you decide to “just drive home.” Now, the real trick will be knowing when to use it and not to forget that you have a breathalyzer on the watch.

Sony’s Last Words Before Court Hearing

CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Kazuo Hirai offered an explanation for the Sony attacks less than a week before Sony’s June 2nd court date. Hirai undoubtedly pins the attacks to the Anonymous group who made a number of threats against Sony, immediately after Sony decided to pursue George Hotz for teaching others how to pirate.

iOS Update Fixes Location Tracking Bug

No biggie, right?

Well, the bug has now been fixed, hopefully putting many minds to ease. The iPad and iPod touch both received an iOS 4.2.8 update.
