Submission + - The White House Responds to We the People Petition (

Nysul writes: The White House, aiming to gather the opinion (or marketing data) of the internet nation, asked for our thoughts by creating the We the People site and now it has responded to some of the more popular petitions, such as marijuana reform and separation of church and state. You probably won't be surprised at the answers.

Submission + - iPhone 4.1 Jailbreak Out (

Nysul writes: There seems to be some conflict among iPhone crack teams, as Geohot just released the iPhone crack tool limera1n (windows only) a day before greenpois0n was supposed to be released by the Chronic Dev Team. The issue is that both cracks use bootrom exploits, so if they are both released at the same time, Apple could patch both holes for the next iOS release. It seems limera1n was released early to pressure the Chronic Dev Team to hold their exploit, as Geohot's exploit is available for more devices. Please note that limera1n does have some bugs..
