"iPhone Dev Team" releases iUnlock software

Only a day after the release of the iPhoneSimfree software to retailers, the enterprising "iPhone Dev Team" has managed to reproduce the functionality for a much more appealing price: free.

Twelve dedicated coders, known only as Daeken, Darkmen, guest184, gray, iZsh, Nightwatch, pytey, roxfan, Sam, uns, Zappaz, and Zf, have managed to decipher the unlocking codes for the iPhone and are making their software available to the world for download -- and at the miniscule size of 6,458 bytes.

While a direct link cannot be provided to the unlocking software, it has been tested and confirmed working. It remains to be seen if updating the iPhone will disrupt the functionality, but testing will continue and updates will be provided as events warrant.

Even with the small size of the unlock code, websites hosting the file or discussion of the procedure, such as, are being brought to a crawl by hordes of visitors. With the recent $200 price cut to the 8GB model and newfound freedom from AT&T, iPhone orders may rise sharply in the next few hours alone.

In related news, an area man was taken by ambulance from a local Starbucks and rushed to the emergency room after reportedly attempting suicide by caffeine overdose. Witnesses claim the frequent starbucks customer had been complaining on a nightly basis about how Steve Jobs had betrayed him and other early iPhone adopters for dropping the price so rapidly after release. Upon learning of the free unlocking software, the man started to scream about how he had spent an "arm and a leg" on similar software just the day before. Witnesses say he then began consuming "an exorbitant" amount of espresso shots, chasing each with an iced latte until he began to shake and convulse.

Early reports indicate that he will make a full recovery.

As an avid Apple fan, I resent your over-the-top satire of fellow Apple fans!

(Mostly, for making me seize into hysterical laughter.)

Sounds like another man I heard about...

This guy was parking his newly bought Porsche on road side, when a out-of-control dump truck almost crashed into it. Luckily it didn't crash fully into car, but ripped of most of the driver's side. A policeman near to sight rushed to the man in Porsche, and this guys starts screaming and complaining how it ruined his new car and no matter how hard garage guys work its never gonna be the same and blah blah.

The cop said, "holy god, you're so materialistic.. you can't see things more important to you than your damaged car. you're so worried about your car that you can't notice your own left arm is ripped in the accident?"

Realizing this he screams, "OH MY GOD.............. my rolex"!!

sorry, but your starbucks story just reminds me this.

In later news; evidently patrons assisting the paramedics help him into the ambulance noted the desperate irony in the Manager's public announcement that followed seconds after his departure...

"In celebration of the new Starbucks/Apple partnership I am thrilled to be able to offer FREE coffee for the entire rest of the day to all iPod or iPhone owners - just bring up your iPod/iPhone and the java is on us!

It's thought that none of the other regulars is ever likely to tell him...
