I just brought to know about the launch of the Windows Live Essentials 2012 from the official Windows team blog. If you’re not familiar, Live Essentials is an integrated suite of applications commonly available as free for Microsoft Windows desktops. This version of the software includes Windows Movie Maker, Photo Gallery, Mail, Live Writer, Messenger 2012 editions, all upgraded for Windows 8 with a set of new features. At present, it is not possible to download a standalone version of the applications mentioned above. You’ve to download the Live Essentials 2012 offline installer and select the required apps during the installation process. Another fact is that Microsoft doesn’t provide a direct link to download Live Essentials 2012 on their official page for the product, but I got the link from the Windows team blog website. Find the link at the end of this page after reading the changes in the new application.
We covered the aspects of the first IBPS exam on October of last year. The previous exam was a huge success among the job seekers who were desperately looking for openings in various financial institutions in India. The best thing about the IBPS system is that it handles a single window exam, a common selection procedure that shapes a rank list, from which the participating banks can select applicants matching their needs. Every year IBPS sets up exams for three job categories; PO, Clerical cadre and for specialist officers.

If we upgrade a carrier unlocked iPhone 3G or 3G S to iOS 4.2.1 firmware or any other version it will lose its activation and become unusable. Those people who bought unlocked iPhone models will get into trouble if they upgrade to new iOS without checking for the availability of compatible jailbreak/unlock tools. The iPhone will then keep itself locked at the “No SIM card inserted” message and with a connect to iTunes screen. And another message ” The SIM card inserted in this iPhone doesn’t appear to be supported” when we connect the device to iTunes. That means you have to get the original carrier SIM card to activate the iPhone 3G or 3G S again. But you can override this using activation of hactivation tools designed for the specific iOS version. Thanks to the iPhone-dev team and other iOS hackers around the world. Now we can fix SIM not supported message in iPhone 3G and 3GS after iOS 4.2.1 firmware upgrade too.
The iPhone Dev-team has managed to provide a working unlock and jailbreak solutions for iPhone 3G and 3GS, just a week after the iOS 4.2.1 firmware releases. They first released Redsn0w 0.9.6 b4 untethered/ tethered jailbreak. And then PwnageTool 4.1.3 and Redsn0w 0.9.6 b5 unlock tools for Mac and Windows. Currently, these iOS 4.2.1 unlock works with iPhone 3G and 3G S models with baseband higher than 05.14.02. They use iPad OS 3.2.2 to upgrade the modem firmware of the target device to 06.15.00, so that it is compatible with Ultrasn0w 1.2 unlock through Cydia.
As expected, Apple today rolled out the iOS 4.2.1 firmware. The iOS 4.2 firmware is available for iPhone 4, iPhone 3G S, iPhone 3G, iPad 3G, iPad WiFi, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and some other devices. Among all devices, iPad is the biggest beneficiary of the iOS 4.2.1 firmware update. Apple iPad users can now enjoy multi-tasking, folders, Game Center and other iOS 4.0 features with the new firmware update. Apart from this, they will also get some new feature like AirPlay, AirPrint, etc., that are specially designed of firmware 4.2. The fourth generation Apple device’s iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G users will be happier with the OS 4.2 announcement. Now they don’t need to spend an extra amount for buying the MobileMe phone tracking service. The new Find My iPhone feature introduced in iOS 4.2.1 firmware will do it for free.
