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.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
