hack stories

A couple of weeks ago we saw how hacker Steven Troughton-Smith had successfully ported the iPhone 4S' Siri personal assistant over to the older iPhone 4. Problem was, it couldn't fool Apple's servers into coughing up any of their informational goodies. Now Troughton-Smith has completed the job, making Siri fully functional on the older device.
This hack is yet another example of why jailbreaking your iPhone 4 is oh so sweet. RecognizeMe is a little tweak available for jailbroken iPhone 4s that uses the front FaceTime camera to scan your face and unlock your smartphone. Yeah, facial recognition tech on the iPhone!
