The eternal game of the cat and the mouse… The great thing about these teams looking for a Jailbreak is that they are pushing Apple into solving issues deep inside the OS code. Increased safety and stability for everyone at the end.

The game is released for the Nintendo 3DS and has a price of $39.99 USD

How many titles are in each Netflix region?

U.S. Netflix currently takes the lead, offering about six times the amount of titles that Netflix Australia has. Other countries like Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and many more face low title counts as well – (via Unblock-Us)

I’ve experienced first hand how a movie I wanted (Frozen) was not available in Netflix Mexico, but it was available in Netflix Netherlands. Since I’m an Unbloc-Us subscriber I just switched regions and my girls were happy to see Frozen for the first time.

Totally recommend it.
