Microsoft Treats Windows Phone 7 Jailbreakers With T-Shirts

If you are jaibreaking an iPhone or a PS3 you might get bullied by Sony and Apple with lawsuits, but it seems that Windows Phone 7 jailbreakers are in for much sweeter deal. The ChevronWP7 team responsible for bringing us the first jailbreak of Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 were invited to meet the Windows Phone 7 developers team at Microsoft to have a frank discussion on the future and security of Windows Phone 7.


The ChevronWP7 guys met the WP7 developer experience director Brandon Watson and the rest of the team members early this week and discussed how to make the Marketplace more secure as well as on the future of Homebrew. The ChevronWP7 team had withdrawn their free Windows phone 7 developer unlock tool at the request of Microsoft in preparation for the meeting, but the software is already out of their control, and is at present still being widely used on XDA-Developers.

No details about the outcome of the meeting were given, but at least the team received t-shirts for their troubles.

Meanwhile, Geohot, the famous iPhone hacker, reacted to Microsoft’s more humane treatment of jailbreakers by threating to buy a Windows Phone 7, to which Microsoft extended a warm welcome and offered him a free handset.


Way to go Microsoft!

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
