BlackBerry PlayBook software update
A day after Apple wowed the world with the forthcoming iOS 5 update, RIM has outed a low-key, minor update for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. There's an improved Facebook app baked-in, as well as video chat connectivity improvements and in-app purchases. However there's still no Android emultator and native email app.

Apple makes WWDC keynote video available
Apple stopped live-streaming its keynote launches last year, but thankfully it has served-up Steve Jobs' iCloud, iOS 5 and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion announcement video in HD. So, if you're not yet convinced by iCloud and want to see how iOS 5 really brings the iPhone to the next level then you can see what the WWDC attendees saw on Monday.

Kid finds way to upgrade to iOS 5 now
Kudos to this youngster who discovered a way to upgrade to Apple iOS 5 NOW without having a developer account with Apple. Apparently there's a backdoor means of downloading the operating system, updating it on your iPhone and then activating it through the Voice Over controls. He's even posted a video of his discovery. Someone give that kid a goldfish.

OnLive for iPad and Android tablets official
It was widely expected but E3 has seen confirmation of an OnLive Player app for iPad and Android tablets. The app will turn your slate into a games console, with titles being streamed directly from the cloud. Gamers will be able to use the touchscreen or motion control to play games, or buy the wireless gamepad.
