Beats Music launches in the U.S, gets cozy with AT&T, but will it be getting your money?

Another contender today steps into the music streaming ring, with the official launch of the brand new Beats Music service. Or at least, the official launch in the U.S. anyway.

How to find out EVERYTHING that's new on Netflix!

Sometimes I just want something new to watch on Netflix and it's frustrating trying to find it in the apps or on the official website. While Netflix does provide a list of New Releases/Arrivals (current content) and Recently Added (catalog content), it's often outdated and represents only a fraction of the actual movies and TV shows hitting the service. What's needed is a simple, reverse-chronological list of everything that's available, as it becomes available. Luckily, the web provides for just exactly that!

BBC's Sherlock is back! Catch up now on iTunes or Netflix

BBC One's modern re-imagining of Sherlock returned today to kick off it's third series (season) in the U.K. (It'll hit the U.S. and Canada later this month.) It stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. There are only three episodes per series, and a year or more between series — the stars are busy in Star Trek, the Hobbit, and other movies, after all — so it's a big deal. If you've watched the first two series, then you have a fair idea what you're in for when Holmes and Watson get back to business. If not, well you're in for a real treat. It's all great, and the end of the third episode of Sherlock series one, and the first episode of Sherlock series two were the best TV I've seen in the last couple of years. If you like owning your TV, you can get both series in iTunes now, or if you have a Netflix subscription, you can stream them at your leisure.

If you've already seen the latest episode, jump into our TV & Movie Forum and discuss it!

iMore's favorite movies, TV shows, music, and books of 2013

We'll be posting both our 2013 Readers Choice Awards and 2013 Editors Choice Awards soon enough, but there's a reason Apple sells more than just devices, and iTunes offers more than just apps. Music, movies, TV shows, books, and comics have all gone digital. Not only is the idea of linear broadcasts increasingly anachronistic, but the idea of media not being everywhere we are, available at the click of a remote or tap of a screen, is almost a thing of the past. From Mac to iPod to Apple TV to iPhone to iPad, we can now access everything we want to listen to, watch, or read, any time we want, anywhere we are. So, just like devices, apps, and games, we want to recognize the other stuff, the media, that makes our lives so much more enjoyable. These, then, are our favorite movies, music, TV shows, and books of the year!

No, Apple hasn't listed todays 12 Days of Gifts offering for £12.99

There seems to be some confusion this morning over Apple's day two 12 Days of Gifts offering, so let's clear things up. No, Apple hasn't listed todays gift for £12.99 – or whatever it might equate to elsewhere – it is definitely listed for free. Yes, tapping view gift takes you to something priced at £12.99, but that isn't the gift.

iTunes for iCloud: Could Apple media become ubiquitous on the web?

One of the headline features of WWDC 2013 - and of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks - was iWork in iCloud, a way to share, view, edit, and collaborate on Pages, Keynote, and Numbers documents on the web. It looks great, it works great, and most importantly, it allows Apple - without having to build or maintain separate native apps for each and every alternate platform on the market - to open up their productivity suite beyond iOS and OS X, to make it available to anyone and everyone who has a compatible browser. So, could they do the same thing with iTunes, and with their media suite of music, TV shows, movies, and books?
