Teamdroid member John reports The mega toy company Hasbro have unveiled a 3D viewer that’s designed for Apple’s second, third, and fourth generation iPod touch, iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4. Hasbro has a number of applications available on the Apple iTunes app store, games and immersive 360 degree pano stuff.

If you want to bend your eyes have a look at my 3D photos (crosseye freeview method). More here as well (in universal freeview mode).

I can’t wait to see what Apple comes up with when they start to dabble with Apple TV systems, I can imagine that this type of technology will be at the top of their wish list though.

It was just a matter of time, the Apple TV 2nd Generation has been Jailbroken! Got to love the Inject Software menu option. 🙂 For some reason that menu option doesn’t quite look stock!

Link Via

AppleTV 2G users:  Welcome to the JB family!  Right now, about all you can do is command-line stuff via ssh.  You also have afc2 available, so you can use tools like ifunbox to move files around.  These are the *very* early days of AppleTV 2G jailbreaking, so it’ll take some time for JB app developers to come up with methods to use your AppleTV 2G from the remote, versus the command line.  PS: Your ssh password is “alpine”…please change it when you can :)”


Inside the Apple TV 2nd Generation

iFixit has cracked open the Apple TV version 2. It is much smaller than the version 1 of the device. Looks to be a nice hackable box. We will soon see what cool applications that can run on this new platform. There is sure to be some additional non-hacked capabilities on the future since there is a large amount of memory which is certainly not all needed for the current method of use.


“The backside of the Apple TV:

  • HDMI output port
  • Optical audio out port
  • 10/100 Base Ethernet port
  • AC adapter port
  • Micro-USB (for service and support)”
