Comparing total cost of ownership on iPhones really left me surprised

I’m getting ready to upgrade my iPhone 4 16Gb to the not-yet-not-announced-but-seemingly-leaked-everywhere sixth generation iPhone. I was surprised by this, but I had assumed (seemingly wrongly) that buying a phone outright would be cheaper than getting a contract with a mobile provider.

How to: Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 with Absinthe 2.0 (Untethered)

I decided to take a holiday to France with my family and the day we left I was browsing Twitter in the ferry terminal when, to my delight, I saw a tweet by @pod2g saying he’d finally managed to get the untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak completed.
