Spam with creativity and just use HTML tables

Hilarious. Using a to infect my eyes with even more Viagra. At least that way it is easier to understand than “V3ia6r4”. They are past ASCII Viagra already, ain’t they?

iTunes sync with Linux on unjailbroken 2.0+ iPhones/iPods?

Hey, it appears as those superbrain folks on the libiphone mailing list are onto something regarding the new hashing algorithm used in Apple’s 2.0+ firmware.

I know it’s a bit late but still interesting to point out:

Waiting to synchronize your unjailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch on Linux over USB?
