Super Tuesday iPod touch Easter Egg

You have so got to love Apple. If you own a jailbroken iPod touch and have bought the January Software Upgrade, navigate yourself over to /private/var/mobile/Applications. There, you’ll find your nikita_receipt.plist. Open it in your favorite property list editor, copy the payload (from <data> to </data>) and use your favorite online base64 converter to decode.Perhaps Apple engineers wish they could vote for Lincoln this time around.

Thanks to the amazing DRP Team and pumpkin, and Francis who gave us the heads up on this

A sample of the Easter Egg…


Fellow-Countrymen: At this second appearing to take the oath of the Presidential office there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first. Then a statement somewhat in detail of a course to be pursued seemed fitting and proper. Now, at the expiration of four years, during which public declarations have been constantly called forth on every point and phase of the great contest which still absorbs the attention and engrosses the energies of the nation, little that is new could be presented. The progress of our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself, and it is, I trust, reasonably satisfactory and encouraging to all.

An SMS to open public toilets

Some toilets along a highway Finnish not open them only if you send an SMS.

The public toilets are locked, but you can open them by sending the text message “OPEN” to the number on the door.

The door unlocks to let you relieve you. And as surprising as it may appear, this is not surcharged SMS, which means that the Finnish government does not earn money by offering this service.

But why lock the toilets if they can be opened with an SMS?
