Don't ditch your classic Xbox just because you can't play Halo 3 on it: Now it's easier than ever to transform that old neglected console into a Unix-based media command center. While early Xbox hackers had to pry open the black box to solder on a modchip, today a software exploit lets you replace Microsoft's crippled dashboard and run the incredible, open source Xbox Media Center (XBMC) software. You don't have to be a hardcore gamer or Unix hacker to get your XBMC on. On Tuesday Adam showed you how to reach media nirvana with Windows Media Center and the Xbox 360, but today we're kickin' it old school with a classic Xbox softmod.

The iPhoneSIMfree.com team called us up to prove their claim that they cracked Apple's iPhone SIM lock system, and prove it they did. (No, we don't have a copy of the unlock software, so don't even ask us, ok?) The six-man team has been working non-stop since launch day, and they're officially the first to break Apple's SIM locks on the iPhone. It's done. Seriously. They wouldn't tell us when and how they would release it to the public, but you can certainly bet that they'll try to make a buck on their solution (and rightly so). We can hardly believe the iPhone's finally been cracked. No, scratch that -- we just can't believe it took this long.
Again: we can confirm with 100% certainty that iPhoneSIMfree.com's software solution completely SIM unlocks the iPhone, is restore-resistant, and should make the iPhone fully functional for users outside of the US. Read on for details and links to our video, and check out the gallery of images below.

reddit is a social news
website where users can post links to content on the web. Other users
may then vote the posted links up or down, causing them to appear more
or less prominently on the reddit home page.
The site has discussion areas where users may discuss the posted
links, and vote for or against others' comments. When there are enough
votes against a given comment, it will not be displayed by default,
although a reader can display it through a link or preference. Users
who submit articles which other users like and subsequently "vote up"
receive "karma", points which a user receives as a reward for
submitting interesting articles.
Taking an idea from Google, the reddit logo changes for various holidays and often for no reason at all, paying homage to Star Wars, classic video games, and geek culture in general. There is an archive of the logos at redditalien.com.

to the front page through a user-based ranking system. This differs
from the hierarchical editorial system that many other news sites

del.icio.us has a "hotlist" on its home page and "popular" and "recent" pages, which help to surface interesting content and make the website an effective conveyor of popular internet memes and trends.
Many novel features have contributed to making del.icio.us the most popular service of its kind. These include the website's simple interface, human-readable URL scheme, a novel domain name, a simple REST API, and RSS feeds for web syndication.
Use of del.icio.us is free. The source code of the site is not available, but a user's own data is freely downloadable through the API in an XML or JSON format, and can also be exported to a standard Netscape bookmarks format.
Everything posted to del.icio.us is publicly viewable by default, although a user can mark specific bookmarks as private, and imported bookmarks are private by default. The public aspect is emphasized; it is not focused on storing private ("not shared") bookmark collections. Many people use the del.icio.us linkrolls, tagrolls and network badges to display their links and information on their weblogs. Others use the RSS feeds and "daily blog posting" feature to do this.
There are a few open source clones of del.icio.us, such as de.lirio.us and sa.bros.us, as well as competing social bookmarking services, such as Simpy, Furl, BlinkList, and Netvouz.
del.icio.us was acquired by Yahoo! on December 9, 2005. Various guesses suggest it was sold for somewhere between US$15 million and US$30 million.
The del.icio.us domain name is a notable example of a domain hack, an unconventional combination of letters to form a word or phrase. del.icio.us, though not the first domain of this nature, is the best-known and most frequently-accessed domain hack, and the Yahoo! acquisition is the highest-profile acquisition of a domain in this category. However, delicious.com and delicio.us also redirect to the del.icio.us website.
