Its no secret that it took a long time for iOS 7.0 to be jailbroken. The first untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.x was released by the evad3rs team, the exploit that their jailbreak used was patched by Apple in its latest firmware update, iOS 7.1. There is really no predicting when iOS 7.1 will be jailbroken, particularly for newer devices, but people still using legacy devices might be in luck. A developer has shown off iOS 7.1 untethered jailbreak on video, but it may not be compatible with all devices.

twitter-view-counts

We often hear about Twitter experimenting with new features, though not all of them necessarily make the cut. These days its experimenting with view counts which basically tells users how many people saw a particular tweet. This feature is similar to page views or post views on a Facebook page. Previously such stats were only shown to advertisers, so this is the first time that view counts are actually being opened up to the public.

There was actually quite a lot of debate on this matter, but the majority seemed to be leaning towards removal of the always-on policy. After a few months Microsoft rolled back the Xbox One always-on policy. The console came out in November last year and has since then been doing well in the market, contrary to popular belief that the debacle would end up hurting its sales.
