What You MEGATech Missed: iGadgeting for Breakfast Michael Kwan August 14, 2011 We cover a lot of great material here on MEGATechNews every week and it’s easy to miss a post or two. That’s why we do a roundup every Sunday with some of the coolest stories of the week. For instance, you may be interested in the second installment in Michael Lim’s series on jailbreaking your Apple iDevice. From your iPhone 4 to the iPad 2, you’ll want to read up on this extensive guide. More important than the jailbreaking itself is the preparation you should do beforehand. Speaking of iDevices, I came across an interesting accessory that can effectively give your iPhone 4 a full QWERTY keyboard. It’s called the Kiano4 keyboard and it works like a slider phone. What’s odd is that while it look like it would be an accessory with a physical connection, it still operates over Bluetooth. It’s not the only Bluetooth keyboard, to be sure, but the design is interesting. And let’s not forget that Apple will likely never release an iPhone with a keyboard, so you really have to look to third party solutions if you want to type on physical keys. Or, you know, don’t get an iPhone. Resident movie expert Dylan Duarte knows a lot about great cinema. He’s also unfortunately very familiar with all sorts of bad flicks too. And so, he recently compiled a collection of infamously bad film prequels. We all know that Hollywood wants to cash in on successful movie franchises, but it’s not just the sequels that are bad; the prequels can be downright deplorable too. What were they thinking when they made a Dumb and Dumber prequel without Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. That’s, well, pretty dumb. It’s like making a Silence of the Lambs prequel without Anthony Hopkins or Jodie Foster. Oh wait… Convergence. It’s a concept that we see in all sorts of technology, like cell phones that double as cameras and printers that double as scanners. Why can’t kitchen appliances be the same way? Beth Snyder certainly thinks so and that’s why she thinks the one-stop breakfast machine is such a brilliant idea. It’ll do toast, poach eggs, and warm your meat. All said, you’ve got a home-cooked McMuffin all in one go. All it needs is more bacon strips. And more bacon strips. And more bacon strips. Last but not least, we’ve got James White reporting on some great news for computer enthusiasts. Gigabyte has launched a big update for its 6-Series line of Intel motherboards. You get support for the 22mm Ivy Bridge socket 1155 processors, for instance, as well as unlocked support for PCIe 3.0. It’s great to see Gigabyte stay on the bleeding edge of computing, don’t you think? Share This With The World!
