Time Warner Cable’s iPad app will be the first with live TV streaming

 Apple, Apps, ipad, ipad 2  Comments Off on Time Warner Cable’s iPad app will be the first with live TV streaming
Mar 142011

Tablet apps from cable, fiber and satellite TV providers are suddenly a dime a dozen but despite promises of live TV streaming from several companies, the AP reports Time Warner Cable is finally ready to launch the feature first. The company’s official blog also teased the app in recent days but so far, iTunes isn’t giving any positive results. When it launches, it should enable TV watching, but only when used at home on Time Warner’s internet — you’ll need the TV and internet services to access the 30 or so channels initially available. While we keep an eye out for the app to actually arrive, you can get an idea of what it will be like by checking out the demo video from last year, embedded after the break. Continue reading »

iTunes 10.2.1 Released

 Apple, News  Comments Off on iTunes 10.2.1 Released
Mar 092011

Apple has just released iTunes 10.2.1.

It has been just a week since Apple released iTunes 10.2, which added support for iOS 4.3, which will be released on March 11th or probably even earlier and improves iTunes Home Sharing feature.

The what’s new section is the same as iTunes 10.2, so it’s not clear what has changed: Continue reading »

Apple announces App Store subscriptions

 Apple, News  Comments Off on Apple announces App Store subscriptions
Feb 152011

Hot on the heels of the Daily, the oft-rumored Apple subscription service is finally spreading out to the rest of the app store. Love it or lump it, anything currently available in the company’s online marketplace, including magazines, newspapers, video, and music, can now be offered on the subscription model. “All we require,” said Steve Jobs in the press release, “is that, if a publisher is making a subscription offer outside of the app, the same (or better) offer be made inside the app, so that customers can easily subscribe with one-click right in the app.” (This sounds familiar.) Publishers are also restricted from linking out of the app to locations that allow the user to circumvent the in-app purchase (and publishers can’t offer better deals outside of the app store). The rationale here? Apple gets thirty percent off the top off in-app purchases — enough of a cut, we’re guessing, to prompt some bigger publishers to skip the platform altogether (outside purchases, of course, are exempt from this fee).

iPad magazine sales climb over a few short months

 Apple, Apps, News  Comments Off on iPad magazine sales climb over a few short months
Dec 292010

Uh oh. Since its debut, the iPad has been variously hailed as the final nail in the coffin of all physical media and the savior of the magazine and newspaper industries. A few magazines, such as Wired, had truly impressive digital launches, with over 100,000 downloads of its first issue in June. It doesn’t seem, however, that the stellar start was in any way sustainable. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, which collects magazine circulation data from companies willing to furnish numbers, all iPad magazines have seen fall offs in downloads over the past few months. Wired was averaging 31,000 downloads from July through September, had 22,000 and 23,000 respectively in October and November. Other magazines have seen similar declines: Vanity Fair sold 8,700 downloads of its November issue, down from an average of about 10,500 from August through October; GQ sold 11,0000 copies, its worst showing yet. Now, not all magazines release their numbers, of course — including The New Yorker, People, and Esquire — but the numbers we do have seem to be indicating a trend of general decline after a short burst of excitement.

iTunes Sending Out Free Movie Rental Codes

 Apple, itunes  Comments Off on iTunes Sending Out Free Movie Rental Codes
Dec 072010

Folks at 9to5Mac are reporting that Apple is sending out emails to customers offering free iTunes movie rentals.

It looks like the free codes are being sent to iTunes users, which can be used to rent one of the 8,500 available movies. 9to5Mac reports:  Apple today started sending out free iTunes movie rental codes to many iTunes users. This seems to be random and we have no idea why they’re doing this. Maybe to promote the rental service? People aren’t renting enough movies? The free movie rental promotion lets you rent one of the 8,500 compatible movies and you have 30 days to start watching and 24 hours to finish. Continue reading »

The Beatles now on iTunes

 Apple, itunes, News  Comments Off on The Beatles now on iTunes
Nov 162010

We’re still holding out hope for a cloud-based subscription service to make that full-page teaser on seem worthwhile, but it looks like today’s unforgettable iTunes announcement will indeed just be the arrival of the Beatles to the store — the Fab Four’s page just went live, about 20 minutes before the official announcement. It looks like the entire catalog is available in a $149 box set complete with iTunes LP content, and there’s also a few videos for your enjoyment. We’re sure some of you are super-stoked about being able to buy this stuff in yet another format — and we’re glad Steve and Yoko worked it out — but unless something else happens today we’re feeling like we just witnessed a lot of empty hype.

Update: Yep, it’s official — the Beatles are on iTunes. No streaming announcement, no subscription service. Apple’s given its entire front page over to a full-size shot of the boys, and as a bonus the “Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964” video will stream for free for the rest of the year. Ringo, can you sum this up for us?
“I am particularly glad to no longer be asked when the Beatles are coming to iTunes,” said Ringo Starr.

You were always our favorite, Rings.

Nov 152010

Whoa, what’s this? Apple just updated its homepage with a new splash screen teasing an “exciting announcement from iTunes” at 10AM ET tomorrow, saying that “Tomorrow is just another day. That you’ll never forget.” All streaming subscription service based out of that North Carolina data center? More video content in the store? Apps for the Apple TV with the iOS 4.2 update? The Beatles? Whatever it is, we’re digging for more, and we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.
