The Iphone that blew up during unlock attempt.

I have been reading that apparently lots of people from different parts of the world have found ways to unlock there Iphones so that they can be used on different networks.

The first person to successfully Unlock an Iphone was a 17 years old called George Hotz from New Jersey in the U.S., he then swapped his unlocked Iphone for a car (Nissan 350Z) and three other locked Iphones, after he had problems selling it on Ebay his blog is here
Mr Hotz blog,

But it appears not everybody has been able to unlock there Iphone successfully, apparently there was one attempt that went horribly wrong, and during the the unlock process the Iphone went up in puff of smoke, The picture below pretty much tells the story of the demise of the poor Iphone
After it happened they left comments on a forum about it,
“We were so happy, all the software part was done, so we started opening the Iphone. The antenna cover was a bit tricky but eventually it came off. Then we started to open the metal cover (after taking out the 3 screws) and PUFF, up it went in smoke, I think my colleague must have touched something. It literally went up in black smoke. I was so hot that when I tried to pick it up I burnt my fingers. So, this is for sure the most difficult part of the whole process. I don’t know what he did, as I had just stepped out of the room to fetch something when I heard a scream…they got such a fright.”

Soon they will probably be unlocking the Iphone for next to nothing, so unless you are very brave its probably best not to open an Iphone and play around.

Cameron is 35 years old and I think some of her best films were There's Something About Mary and My Best Friend's Wedding and she also starred in quite a few other good ones.

It's not just Fred Flintstone that has a wooden car

Many of you have probably seen the cartoon The Flintstones were Fred Flintstone has a wooden car that he drives with his feet,

However one man from the Ukraine took this a step further and has made his own real wooden car, he is obviously a man of vision but And apparently, he is also a man of double vision as he has built it as two cars in one,
One half is a topless old fashion style and the other half seem to be a more modern style that looks to me a bit like a Mercedes,

It must of took so much time and work to build but apparently the man who made it called Vasily Lazarenko can only very occasionally take the car out for a drive as the wooden vehicle isn't registered.
I wonder how many miles he gets per gallon it must be really heavy.

The top 10 most used passwords .. if yours is there better get changing passwords.

I was reading lately on how it seems the average users are using less and less secure passwords online, and there was also a list of the top 10 most used passwords,
lucky none of my passwords are in the list but it might be worth you checking to see if yours are.
The thing is I can see why this problem is happening years ago all you would have to remember is your phone number,
if you had a phone at home and then when the banks brought out cash point machines your card pin, and that was it. (oh apart from maybe your name)

But now with the Internet it really seems like you have to enter anther password every two minutes, there is online banking signing in for email accounts passwords for blogs etc, ect, ect.
and your told never to right them down anywhere so you have to keep all that information floating round in your head,
So unless you have a photographic memory or the brain of Elbert Einstein,

it starts to become harder and harder to remember all that information,
but with the amount of online fraud there is now it really is best to go far a secure one,

even if you have to get it reset if you forget it,

So here are the 10 most common passwords
(I just knew that 'password' was going to be there as a password)

Top 10 Most Common Passwords

  • 10. Thomas

  • 9. arsenal

  • 8. monkey

  • 7. charlie

  • 6. qwerty

  • 5. 123456

  • 4. letmein

  • 3. liverpool

  • 2. password

  • 1. 123

So if you were in the top 10 better get changing those passwords!
Oh and I'm sure I don't need to say this but please don't leave any of your passwords in the comments :-)

If you are stupidly rich and need a new phone and you need a new mobile phone why not buy yourself the Ancort phone above it's a bargain :-) at only $1.3 million US
JSC Ancort is a Russian company that teamed with celebrity jeweller Peter Aloisson to create the unbelievable expensive version of Swiss Crypto Telecommunication Security’s Crypto Smart telephone and with the price tag of $1.3 MILLON it is the world’s most expensive mobile phone.

But if your a bit strapped for cash and need to buy a cheap little phone just to keep you going :-)
you could just buy this Nokia N95 it's 18 carat solid white gold, and comes with 325 diamonds embedded in the case.
