A member of the Chronic Dev Team has tweeted that the heavily anticipated greenpois0n Apple iOS 4.1 jailbreaking solution will be released on Sunday: 10/10/10 at 10:10:10 a.m.

Joshua Hill, also known as "p0sixninja", tweeted Thursday that "Things have progressed to the point where we don't expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM." (Presumably that's GMT, along with 6:10:10 a.m. eastern standard time and 3:10:10 a.m. pacific standard time.)

Some have celebrated that jailbreaking iOS 4.1 will mean opening up not just iPhones and iPads but even the Apple TV, which also uses that operating system

Some have warned about fake greenpois0n tools that have been circulating.

While Apple discourages jailbreaking, which enables users to run unapproved apps on Apple devices and run those devices on networks other than AT&T's, the practice was declared legal under U.S. copyright law over the summer despite the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Apple iOS 4.1, released in September, boasts improved performance, access to Game Center, FaceTime calling and more.

Oct. 10, because of its unusual 10.10.10 date, could be an active day on the technology scene. Ubuntu 10.10 is expected out that day, for instance.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
