After months of rumors and beta releases, earlier today Apple finally released iOS 7.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update brings several user interface tweaks and activates the CarPlay feature. It also brings bug fixes and performance improvements. One of the exploits that it plugs is the one used by the evasi0n jailbreak tool, as confirmed by legendary iOS hacker @MuscleNerd. The exploit existed in iOS 7.0 and all subsequent incremental updates, but since it has been plugged in the latest release, that means untethered iOS 7.1 jailbreak is not possible, at least not immediately.
Looks like Samsung has made up its mind to extend the Galaxy Note 3 design language on even more products. The phablet, which was launched at IFA last year, came with a stitched faux leather back. The material provides a soft touch feel and provides better grip. It was expected that the Galaxy S5 would follow the same design language, but it didn’t. Instead just a few days ago Samsung launched a new Chromebook with faux leather spread over the lid. The company has revealed that the Ativ Book 9 is the second notebook in its lineup to get faux leather as well.
