imagesEver get to a site that had an embedded file you wanted to save on your computer?  Well here is a very easy way to get those files on your computer via Safari.   If it is a video file there is a good chance you will need to convert it to flash, however if you just want to download something from youtube check out this guide.

  1. Open up Safari and navigate to the page you wish to yank that file from.
  2. In the title bar click Window > Activity
  3. This will show everything Safari is downloading to show on the page, look for the file you wish to take.  It will probably be the largest one, or the only one with MB (Sizes are on the right).
  4. Click on that item
  5. In the title bar click Edit > Copy
  6. Paste the new url into your address bar and hit enter.
  7. Your download should begin!

Note: Safari is no longer just for mac’s, you can use it on Windows aswell.

Basically, you guess the volume of the container which is a lot easier than M&M’s. From the volume of the container you calculate how many M&M’s would fit using a packing fraction.

This example will follow what he explains in the video below.
The volume of 1 M&M = .715 mL
Volume of his container = 1150mL
Packing Fraction of M&M’s = 66.5%
Equation: (1150 / .715) * .665 = 1069.58 m&m’s.

He states he counted the actual number of M&M’s and got 1072, which is very close to our formula of 1070(rounded up).

purplera1nThis is the moment we all been waiting for, a fully functional 3.0 jailbreak for the 3GS.  Currently this is windows only, there isn’t much of this software it is from an individual and not the dev-team as they delayed their release of the jailbreak.

What you need

  • Latest Version of iTunes (8.2)
  • iPhone 3GS
  • PurpleRa1n(click windows logo to download)

Steps

  1. Ensure iPhone is connected
  2. Run PurpleRa1n, click “Make it ra1n”
    • It will send your iphone into recovery
    • Once it detects recovery it will display the image you see to the right
    • If it is here more than 2 minutes, something wrong happened.  Either copy and paste purplera1n.log (located same directory as purplera1n) to our forums or email it to purplera1n.support[at]gmail[dot]com.
  3. Open the “Freeze” app
  4. Install Cydia
  5. Restart iPhone
  6. I highly recommend you to upgrade cydia once installed, just open it and go to changes and “upgrade all”
  7. Optional: Unlock the iPhone 3GS

images-2Did you know you can share your computers internet connection with others?  So if your mac has ethernet(cabled) connection, you can create a wireless network.  Or if your MAC has a wireless connection you could share with an ethernet connection(useful for game systems!)

How To:

  1. Open up System Preferences, click the apple in the upper left of your screen and select it.
  2. Under Internet and Network select Sharing
  3. Click on “Internet Sharing” but don’t click the check box yet!
  4. On the Right select where you want to share your connection from and share it to.  Example: Share from Built-in Ethernet to AirPort, will create a wireless network.
  5. Check the check box.

Notes:

  • If creating a wireless network you will not be able to join any wireless networks until this is disabled, just uncheck the box.
  • If creating a wireless network, before you enable the service you can change the name of the network or even encrypt it via WEP by clicking on “Airport Options”

iphone31-7-1-09At 5PM PDT the beta version of 3.1 will go live, however to upgrade to it you will lose: Jailbreak, Unlock, and the Free Tether.  That being said you can always downgrade to get a Jail Break / Tether working however that is not always true for the unlock.  As always we will be posting guides on performing those tasks as soon as we find out how to, so if you want to keep any of those functions DO NOT UPGRADE.

That being said here are the “new features” of 3.1.

  • Voice Control now works over Bluetooth
  • Updated AT&T profile to 4.2 (MMS may now be enabled)
  • Improvements to OpenGL and Quartz.
  • iPhone vibrates when moving icons
  • Non-destructive video editing means trimming a clip no longer saves over the original video but gives you the option to “Save as copy…”
  • APIs to allow third party apps to access videos and edit them.
  • Updated modem firmware to 5.08.01
