Those who are using Smartphones are already familiar with the software applications that reads book contacts. Unfortunately, not all applications require the user’s permission and some of them loads the data in their servers without using a secure protocol.

Among the important applications of the iPhone which download contact names, phone numbers and email addresses of contacts is including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Foodspotting, Yelp and Gowalla. It may sound normal to us given that we are always connected with our friends, but not all require permission.

When you are using applications based on social circles of friends, it makes sense to provide the application connect with friends who use it. On the other hand, not everyone in your address book have Twitter or Facebook account. Agenda, with phone numbers and your email is copied entirely on the application server used. There can be two problems related to data taken and how they are transmitted.

It is common sense that the manufacturer of an application does not use your phone number and email from your book for other activities not strictly related to the application. Nobody wants to get email addresses in databases, which sold for $ 100 spammers. A second problem is transmitting the book data to the server. Some applications encrypts data and then send or use a secure data connection. Others did not bother to do any of the above. Contact names, phone numbers and email addresses are put into a text file that is then sent through an insecure data channel.

The source developers have introduced some popular applications – a dialog box asking the user permission to access calendar data. This is a first step. Apple is sure to test and approve applications available in the AppStore, but there were several problems with applications that have passed this filter. The problem is even greater applications for Android, which are not blocked by any authority.

Zong application is available on Android Market and the App Store since launch. The application can be accessed only if you have a premium account with 4.99 euros/month.

Unlike Grrooveshark competitor, the application is available in the AppStore and you don’t nedd Jailbreak to listen to unlimited and legally music.

The application of the iOS provides a search across available audio library that is updated continuously. Player performed flawlessly, even on EDGE connection, with little delay before the song start, not during, as is the case if you get stuck in the middle of YouTube video. Smart Radio lets you listen to random songs, but in all kinds of music (the radio function is available on PC genres). You can easily create a playlist on your mobile phone, not just the Zong site.

Zong application unlike other streaming applications available on mobile phones offers two very useful functions. One of the functions is data counter warns you when you reach a certain volume of data. A second useful feature is available on iOS 5 at least and to change tracks and control volume directly from the lock screen menu without having to open the Zong.

Zong application is created by iQuest Technologies company and the IOS version is only available in AppStore.

GTA III’s iDevice was launched last month in the App Store and the game is a port of the console version. The good part of this work lies in the fact that we can modify almost any part of GTA III sites using specially made for Grand Theft Auto fans. The really interesting here is that we can modify the application of our sites iDevice even without performing a jailbreak so you can customize your liking GTA.

In the following I will show you how to change the game GTA III and would be good to follow it exactly as described otherwise the process will not work.

1.  Download the code injection for Windows / Mac. Download IMG Tool for Windows or Crossover for Mac.

2.  After you install the programs you access one of these sites where you will find all sorts of mods for GTA III: 1, 2, 3.

3.  Connect your iDevice to your computer and open code injection.

4.  Using code injection navigate to: apps> com.rockstargames.gta3ios> You searched for gta3_pvr.img gta3_pvr.dir and you will copy into your computer and you will delete the iDevice.

5.  Now using IMG Tool and open the file Crossover gta3_pvr.img where you copy the files you want to change. For this tutorial we will modify a car. Download this file from here and unzip it in your computer. Now back to IMG Tool open gta3_pvr.img file and search files and manana.txd manana.dff that option using Coomands> Extract the IMG Tool will extract them in your computer. After extracting the image delete them open IMG Tool. Now unpack the manner presented by me and open the image and add files manana.dff manana.txd using Coomands> extract and then run Commands> Rebuild Archive.

6.  After the recovery process was completed copy of the archive back into your iDevice and gta3_pvr.dir your files that you deleted in step 4. They have copied all the Apps> com.rockstargames.gta3ios>

If you followed the above steps strictly in GTA III when the old car Manana should be gone and in its place you should see a Ford V8 Sedan in 1980.

An iPhone 4 caught fire inside a plane that began the landing procedure and now I return with information about another iPhone that has just suffered the same fate. In the picture above we could see the device that apparently caught fire while was on loading on the table of an user. He says it is only at a few inches of the device when it began to pull smoke and then flames out, while it was connected to the computer.

In the morning, I woke up seconds before witnessed the burning of my iPhone when I saw a lot of sparks and black smoke out of the cell. My room was impregnated with an unbearable smell smoke! That moment, turned off the power switch in the room to remove the cell the outlet.

The fault seems to be battery of device which apparently had been lit probably due to a manufacturing defect. Unfortunately this is the second incident occurred just at a few days away from the plane at an Australian company. Incidents like this are rare but when it happens drag all the attention because the world does not expect that a premium device to take fire out of nothing. If you happen, immediately ventilate the room where you are, because the smoke out of terminal is toxic and is recommended that to not inhale.
