With the release of the Series 3, Apple released a set of new Nylon/Velcro Sport Loops which are the most comfortable Apple Watch bands released to date. Unfortunately, these new Sport Loops are only bundled in with the Cellular Apple watch so that means if you get a normal Series 3, Series 2, or Series 1 you will have to shell out a little over $50 for one band which is insane.

I’d been waiting for a fake/copy to pop up on Amazon and it finally did! It’s called the Qifit New Nylon Sport Loop with Hook and Loop Fastener and it comes in all of Apple’s original colors which I couldn’t believe so I purchased a pink and a black one to see how close they come to Apple’s version. Basically, it’s the exact same thing but for $16. The colors are exactly the same but more importantly, the way the velcro is laid out and how the band feels is also exactly the same! This is the first band I’ve bought on Amazon that actually looks like an Apple product without branding.

If you have been wanting a sport loop then you can confidently buy these knowing you are getting the same thing as Apple but without the hefty price tag. It’s ideal for working out and sleeping but I bought mine mainly for sleeping since it makes the watch so much more comfortable than any other band. You can get one here on Amazon. Just as a tip, the black one is like the one I am wearing in the picture and isn’t completely black (just how Apple’s is), I believe dark olive is more of a darker gray/black.
For a while now, all those iPhone 4S users have been teasing us with their ability to use Siri and Dictation. Sadly, we still haven’t gotten Siri but we are one step closer. Developer Eric Day has released a new jailbreak package called Siri0us, which you can get via a Cydia repository, and enables you to get Siri Dictation working on your iOS 5 device. Siri0us works just like it does on the iPhone 4S but it does have ads.
Instructions: 1. Have a jailbroken device running iOS 5 2. Go to Cydia and add http://apt.if0rce.comas a source. 3. Search for Siri0us and instal 4. Enjoy using dictation
Developers are hard at work trying to get Siri on the iPhone 4, meanwhile, if you have a jailbroken iOS 5 device then you should give this a try.
Today BigBoss released a Semitethered jailbreak for iOS 5. Basically, how this works is simple. In a tethered jailbreak; when you turn of your phone you get stuck at the apple logo or the itunes restore screen but with this “Semithered” jailbreak you are instead limited to what you can use. Once you reboot your phone you will be able and unable to do the following:
1) Can use phone, sms (text messages)
2) Can use every other stock app on iphone.
3) Cannot use mobile safari
4) Can use other appstore web browsers such as atomic web browser
5) Cannot use mail app. You could install a gmail app from appstore or such instead.
6) You cannot use any jailbreak tweak, app, cydia until you boot tethered.
7) While in the semitether booted state, you should not add a jailbreak ios5 notification such as sbsettings
to notifications during this state or your device will be stuck in a respring loop until you get home to
This is clearly much better than a tethered jailbreak because incase of a emergency you will be able to at least make a call or send a text message. At the moment it is in beta testing, this means there might be bugs and other disadvantages to doing this as well make sure you go to the source link and read all of their information.
A couple of weeks ago the developer Steven Troughton-Smith had successfully ported Siri’s user-interface onto the iPhone 4. The only downside is that they couldn’t get Siri to connect to Apple’s servers. But now they were finally able to get the server fully working on the iPhone 4 and iPod touch. Sadly, there is no word on wether they will be bringing this to all jailbreakers out there so we will just have to wait. (Check out the video below)
–I have been waiting for this for a while now. I gotta admit it’s pretty cool and theres not much to explain. This theme brings a OS X like interface to your iPhone. You do need to have a jailbroken device with Dreamboard and at the moment iOS 5 is not supported. This also allows you to use mission control and dashboard. Watch the video below to see it in action.
