Many of us now have more than one PC, and maybe a smart phone as well, and increasingly we need to be able to access files and folders stored on one PC from another, or the mobile, especially if you are on your travels or out and about.
There are ways and means within Windows but here’s a simple, free one-stop solution for Windows, Mac and Linux PCs as well as iPhones, iPads, Android and Blackberry smart phones. It’s called Dropbox and it creates a special folder on you PC or mobile into which you put all of the files you want to be able to access from another device.
When you make changes to the saved files or add new ones, the Dropbox folders on your other PCs are automatically updated and as an added bonus there’s a facility to store your Dropbox files on the web, as an emergency backup. More »
Windows Phone 7 users are required to signin to their smartphones using a Windows Live ID, just like Google’s Android uses a Gmail account. Once signed with a Windows Live ID, users will have access to Zune, Xbox LIVE, as well as Windows Phone Marketplace services.

An unlock for iOS 4.2.1 is almost ready to go, signals iPhone Dev Team member Musclenerd, via Twitter.

“Finally got ultrasn0w working fully on 4.2.1,” Musclenerd writes on Novemver 27. “Apple inadvertently(!) broke ultrasn0w via aggressive compiler optimization,” the hacker explains.
In a separate note that hit the micro blogging service just minutes ago, Musclenerd adds: “When we update ultrasn0w today, 100’s of thousands (maybe millions?) will see red badge. Trying to make it safe for all.” More »
