iTunes vs. Ultraviolet: Are Apple-loving Veronica Mars fans entitled to their service of choice, or just entitled?

The Kickstarter-funded Veronica Mars movie landed not only in theaters, but on Ultraviolet digital streaming and on iTunes yesterday. For a Hollywood movie from a studio like Warner Brothers, that's... transcendent. But as much as it might have presaged a new era in entertainment, it also highlighted some massive ongoing problems. Mainly, the digital downloads offered to backers turned out not to be the iTunes codes some wanted but Ultraviolet streams instead. That caused a lot of confusion and more than a little anger.

If not an iWatch... how about an iRing?

iWatch is all most markets and media outlets are talking about these days because wearables are new and every short-attention-span junky in the world wants Apple to do something new. But what if, instead of an iWatch, Apple went with an iRing?

Is iOS 7.1 worth giving up your jailbreak for?

iOS 7.1 brings a few new features, some great accessibility updates, and some much needed bug fixes to the iPhone and iPad. If you want it, however, you're going to have to give up your jailbreak to get it. That's because, unlike iOS 7.0.x, iOS 7.1 has been jailbroken yet and, as is increasingly the case, there's no word yet on when or how long it'll be until iOS 7.1 is jailbroken. So, is iOS 7.1 enough of an improvement that you'd be willing to give up your tweaks, customizations, and jailbreak apps?

Have you updated to iOS 7.1 yet?

Have you updated to iOS 7.1 yet?

It's been just over 48 hours since iOS 7.1 hit, so have you updated yet? A point update – no matter how much some of us are waiting on it – doesn't usually draw the same excitement as a full blown new iOS version, but there's no denying that a lot of us have been waiting on iOS 7.1. There will also be those folks who are happy enough to wait it out and see the feedback come in first before thinking about updating. So, which camp are you in?

iMore at Macworld|iWorld 2014 — Here's what's coming your way!

Peter Cohen and I will be at Macworld|iWorld 2014 from March 27-29. It takes place at Moscone North in San Francisco and once again promises to be the Apple community made manifest. The expo hall will be filled with app developers and accessory makers, the conference with instructional and informational sessions (I'll be doing a couple!), and the special events with music and a whole lot of merriment. In other words, if you can make it to SF, you'll want to make it for Macworld|iWorld!

iPhone 4 owners: Has iOS 7.1 improved performance?

Has iOS 7.1 improved performance on your iPhone 4?

One of the features Apple lists for the just-released iOS 7.1 software update is "Improved performance for iPhone 4". That's great since previously performance was bad enough it had many people desperate to downgrade. That's nothing new, of course. The bottom end of the upgrade list is often excruciating on the x.0 and picks up on the x.1 or x.2. So it was with the iPhone 3G in its day, now it is with the iPhone 4. So, is it really any better?
