Go Hack Yourself 

Wednesday, Apr 2 2014

Look around you. Are there any 10- or 12-year-old kids nearby? If you answered yes, then probably all of those kids know more about jailbreaking an iPhone than you will ever know about anything. If that makes you sad, don't worry; you can still get a ticket to this weekend's JailbreakCon, a gathering for the world's iOS-hacking community. It's a small conference, and attendees usually get to spend time talking to the speakers and special guests one-on-one or in small groups. The Sunday lineup is particularly interesting, featuring speakers like pod2g, nitoTV (one of the great Apple TV hackers), and Jay Freeman, or Saurik, developer of Cydia, a software installation application used by more than 30 million jailbreakers. He's quite famous. If you have a burning desire to get involved with the jailbreaking movement, the convention is a great way to educate yourself. It could also be a great place to meet entrepreneurs and up-and-coming tech leaders.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
