Social Experiment – a bust…

So I was forced to go with out my Iphone.  I was resolved to go Old School.  It was tough.  I heard phantom rings and vibrations.  I kept checking my pockets so that I could get my Iphone and check for email.  But by the third day I started feeling good.  The sense of urgency to life was gone.  I spent more time getting things done, meeting with people face to face, actually being engaged in a conversation with out ...

Posted by:

Intelliborn has just announced Intelliscreenx.

A couple of weeks ago I had stated that ios5 had enough functionality that I didn’t need to jailbreak anymore.

Intelliscreen had been the only jailbreak app that I found to be invaluable before ios5 introduced the notification center. It collected all your information and presented it in the lock screen.

Well Intelliscreenx gives me a reason to jailbreak. It now is integrated with the notification center and does it one step better. It puts the ...
