Interesting iPhone and iPad Videos
Making Future Magic: iPad light painting – Making stop motion animation from lights in the air coming from the iPad screen. The result is amazing 3D typography and objects in virtual spaces, and quite amazing! (thanks to Christine for sending in this story) You can read more about the project on the BERG blog.
Do you use a lock password on your iPhone? This might be of interest to you. As shown in this video, you can bypass the iPhone’s password protected lock screen using these 3 steps:
1) Tap the “Emergency call” button
2) Enter three pound signs (###)
3) Hit the green call button then immediately press the lock button on top of the iPhone
You will then be taken to the Phone app where you have full access to the iPhone’s Address book, Voicemail, Call history, and Phone Dialer functionality.
I would guess and hope that a fix to this “backdoor” hack will be put out by Apple very soon.
You can make phone calls to anyone on the contact list or by entering any number. From Contacts, you can compose any MMS or Email by choosing Share Contact. When you get to the MMS screen you can then get to all the Photos in the Camera Roll by tapping the camera icon and choosing Choose Existing Photo. There does not seem a way to be able to open up Safari.
All this only works if you have iOS version 4.1 installed.
