    What are real reasons to mod?

    Are there any iPhone "mods" that won't require a full factory re-sync when an official Apple software comes out? I know the ringtones/wallpaper/visual mods will all require a full factory restore... but what about additional apps like SSH, the games that are currently out, etc.? because I'm not...

    Should i buy an iPhone now or wait?

    Bookmarklets work!

    Yeah to be honest I wasn't super impressed with any of the ones linked before, but I did a further search and found some good ones here, including "Search for text", "Open in new tab", "Search for in Dictionary/Thesaurus", and "Search for in Wiki"...

    Bookmarklets work!

    Not sure if anyone's still looking for a quick-and-simple explanation of bookmarklets, but here's my go at it: A bookmarklet is basically a bookmark that "does" something rather than "takes" you somewhere. The reason it "does" something is someone (e.g., Google, an independent programmar...
