Well, I removed those too, so reinstalling them wouldn't be too much of a problem.

comment Rebooting iPhone Doesn't Kill off All the Process
Braking your warranty is a non-issue, you just flash to stock. As far as I know, no malware has made it into Cydia, and if you feel you can't trust Cydia, I don't see why you would trust the App Store, considering the irregularities in apple's screening process, and the numerous userland exploits used to break out of the sandbox to install jailbreak in the first place, which crop up regularly (If the sandbox was secure, jailbreaking would not happen in the first place). The fact that apps can do interesting things as root/privileged user is half of the advantage of jailbreaking.

I believe that opening a .DMG file automatically verifies it. Basically, it contains a checksum in the file (or are you worried about malicious packages, rather then just corruption?).

I dunno about that, nslookup returns the correct IP, at least for no-ip.org.

This does NOT work with all apps. I closed the Mail app this way, and it is still present in the SBSettings task manager. Its possible Apple has special rules for their own apps, or that certain apps can circumvent this. It did work for several other apps I tried.

Is RCDefault scriptable? I looked over their site, and it doesn't look like it.

comment Apple shipping - air or sea?
Are you sure it's being shipped from Shanghai? I would imagine that Apple must have at least one distribution point in Canada, somewhere. They will probably ship it from there.

comment Did they increase RAM in iPad 2?
@MikeyByCrikey - Also, "Magic" just means no one has figured out how it works, and is a detrimental shortcut to critical thinking. I'd argue that it is actually a pejorative term.

comment Did they increase RAM in iPad 2?
@MikeyByCrikey - But I DO know how much RAM my fridge and DVD player have, and I incorporate such information into the decision making process when deciding to buy products.
