This request was routine and over the past decade or so we have become accustomed to financial institutions that engage us for information and communications solutions to drive their business.

But today the requests are still there but framed differently, for example, a large multinational financial institution recently had a meeting with us to discuss “ways to improve business operations while holding down the cost of information communications technology”. No longer, data or internet links but “ways” to enable business. This trend, which is only just emerging in the local ICT market, has long been the norm in several other markets.

Reknown iPhone hacker comex (@comex on twitter) last night became the first hacker to release a jailbreak for the new iPhone 4 and iOS 4 platform. Known for his previous jailbreak termed spirit which was used to tether jailbreak all iPhone and iPod Touch and iPad models on iOS 3.1.3, this jailbreak is used to jailbreak Apple's new iPhone 4, and is tethered! (Meaning you dont have to run the jailbreak every time the phone boots).

This jailbreak is entirely web based and is accessed by pointing your mobile safari to www.jailbreakme.com. This will download and install some files on your device which will jailbreak it. This will also install the famous Cydia app on your home screen that is a gate way to lots of unofficial apps that you can install on your iPhone.
