iPhone's is for sale by teen....lastest news

This is the phone that was unlocked live here this morning. It includes the phone, the worlds first serial dock, and the official unlock switch from the blog.

As a note, if you are only bidding on this to get an unlocked iPhone, don't. There are much cheaper and easier ways to get one. This is a piece of cell phone history. I have no intention of ever starting an unlocking service.


Unlocked iPhone

iPhone's Network Lock Hacked By Teen

A 17-year-old hacker has broken the lock that ties Apple's iPhone to AT&T's wireless network, freeing the most hyped cellphone ever for use on the networks of other carriers, including overseas ones.

George Hotz of Glen Rock, N.J., confirmed Friday that he had unlocked an iPhone and was using it on T-Mobile's network, the only major U.S. carrier apart from AT&T that is compatible with the iPhone's cellular technology. In a video posted to his blog, he holds an iPhone that displays "T-Mobile" as the carrier.

While the possibility of switching from AT&T to T-Mobile may not be a major development for U.S. consumers, it opens up the iPhone for use on the networks of overseas carriers.

"That's the big thing," Hotz said in a phone interview from his home.

Taxi Union Announces September 5th Strike

The Taxi Workers Alliance says that at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, September 5th its members will go on a 48-hour strike.

"No taxis would be operating on the roads,” said Taxi Workers Alliance Executive Director Bhairavi Desai. “We're asking drivers to keep their cars parked either on the streets or leave them at the garage.”

At issue is a new GPS system, a satellite-tracking technology the city's Taxi and Limousine Commission is requiring in all 13,000 of the city's yellow cabs. It's just one in a package of technology improvements that also includes a credit card reader and a video screen in every backseat.

Cabbies Turning Up Strike Talk Over Technology

NEW YORK -- Taxi drivers who oppose having global positioning systems in their cabs have set a strike date. The New York Taxi Workers Alliance, which has more than 8,400 members, will call for drivers to strike on September 5th and 6th if city leaders don't drop plans for a GPS system that the group fears could be used to track drivers' movements.

All 13,000 city cabs will be required by the Taxi and Limousine Commission to install touch-screen and global positioning systems. The commission initially called for the technology while approving a 26 percent fare increase in 2004. Starting on October 1, as taxis come up for inspection, they will be required to have the technology.

The touch-screen monitors will let passengers pay by credit card, check on news stories, map their taxi's current location and look up restaurant and entertainment information.

The Taxi Workers Alliance opposes the GPS system -- saying it is an invasion of drivers' privacy.

Apple Gaining Marketshare, Mindshare

The latest numbers are looking good for Apple, especially in the Laptop market.

According to a ChangeWave survey, Apple's laptop share gained 5% over the past 90 days and is roughly 5% higher than a year ago, now sitting at 17%. The survey also indicates that 28% of potential buyers over the next 90 days will be choosing an Apple Laptop, and 23% choosing an Apple desktop.

In addition to the survey's findings, NPD data reported by Macworld pins June 2007 notebook retail market share at 17.6%, an increase of 2.2% over last year.

Overall, NPD places Apple as the 3rd largest US computer manufacturer, with a 5.9% U.S. market share, up 1.1% from last year's numbers.

Deutsche Bank Building Dropped After Deadly Fire

NY1 has learned that Bovis, the contractor at the former Deutsche Bank building site, moved Wednesday to fire its subcontractor, John Galt, following Saturday’s deadly blaze that claimed the fire of two firemen.

Bovis, along with the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, claims Galt demonstrated an inability in terms of its supervision and maintenance of the project.

This comes a day after the Manhattan district attorney announced the launch of a criminal investigation into the fire.

The investigation so far has revealed a building with a history of Department of Building violations, including several fines this year for failure to properly remove combustible materials and debris.

Space Shuttle Lands Safely Despite Gouge

— The space shuttle Endeavour glided to a safe landing here at 12:32 p.m. Eastern time, apparently not much worse for wear.

After two weeks of analyzing, worrying and ultimately taking no action to repair a small but deep gouge in the Endeavour’s underside, NASA flight controllers cleared the shuttle to return to Earth this morning.“You are go for the de-orbit burn,” Christopher J. Ferguson, an astronaut at the NASA’s mission control center in Houston, radioed to the Endeavour crew at 11:05 a.m. Eastern time.

Starting at 11:25 a.m., with broken clouds but otherwise blue skies over the landing strip and a steady breeze blowing near the ground, the Endeavour fired its maneuvering thrusters for 3 minutes and 35 seconds, to slow the aircraft and drop it out of orbit towards Earth’s atmosphere. The craft cruised southwest to northeast high over Costa Rica and Cuba, and then over southern Florida, as it descended.

Rapper Foxy Brown Accused of Lying to Police During N.J. Traffic Stop

There's another addition to rapper Foxy Brown's legal woes. This time, Brown is accused of lying to police during a New Jersey traffic stop.

The Record of Bergen County reports that Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was driving a sport utility vehicle in Mahwah on Wednesday.

Authorities told the newspaper that the rapper was stopped for talking on a handheld cell phone and failing to stop at a stop sign.

Authorities say a check showed the SUV's registration had been suspended, and that the 27-year-old rapper gave officers a variation of her real name and a date of birth that was a year off.

Leona Helmsley, Hotel ‘Queen,’ Is Dead at 87

Phil Rizzuto, Yankees Shortstop, Dies at 89

Don Imus back ?.....ho,ho,ho

The voice of Don Imus could resurface somewhere on the radio dial as soon as this fall, after he and CBS announced yesterday that they had settled the remaining differences surrounding his firing in April over remarks deemed insensitive to women and blacks.

Neither Martin Garbus, the lawyer representing the radio host, nor CBS, which owns WFAN, the AM station that had been the flagship for his morning talk show, would comment on the terms of their agreement, citing a confidentiality clause. Had he not been dismissed, Mr. Imus would have been paid nearly $40 million over the nearly four years that remained on his contract. While some Imus associates suggested yesterday that his final payment was at least $20 million, Karen Mateo, a spokeswoman for CBS Radio, characterized that figure as too high.

In fact, it was impossible for an outsider to know for sure yesterday how much CBS had agreed to pay him. It was also unclear yesterday where on the radio Mr. Imus might be heard next. Two people who had been apprised directly of his plans, but who would only speak on condition of anonymity, said he had yet to line up a deal elsewhere. But his agreement with CBS does not, apparently, set any restrictions on how long he must wait before restarting his morning show elsewhere. (It does, however, preclude his making disparaging remarks about Leslie Moonves, the president and chief executive of CBS, and vice versa.)

Feds Backing Bloombergs TraFFIC Plan....ouch...

Mayor Bloomberg's plan to charge drivers $8 to drive below 86th Street in Manhattan has taken a big step forward. Washington has agreed to give New York City hundreds of millions of dollars for the congestion pricing plan.

If implemented, the congestion pricing scheme proposed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg would be the first of its kind in the nation. London and Singapore have similar toll programs.

For weeks, New York officials haggled over whether to approve the mayor's idea in time to qualify for a share of $1.2 billion in federal aid. State leaders eventually struck a compromise keeping the plan alive, but it was unclear if the squabbles and delays soured federal transportation authorities on New York's novel attempt to reduce gridlock.

Bloomberg's plan would charge cars $8 and trucks $21 to enter Manhattan south of 86th Street on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has been considering which five out of nine cities will receive a major infusion of cash for local traffic reduction plans, and Secretary Mary Peters was scheduled to make an announcement Tuesday morning.
