Quick Review: Netflix for iPad

You say you just picked up a new iPad and wanted to sit back and watch your favorite episode of Lost or perhaps a blockbuster movie? If you are a Netflix member you can do just that with the official Netflix iPad application! [iTunes Link - Free]

All you have to do is download the Netflix app from the App Store and you can instantly watch TV shows and movies directly on your iPad. Once you start the app you will be taken to the Netflix website that seems to be optimized for iPad and you will enter in your password and username and everything will be familiar. If you start to watch a movie from your computer or TV and want to resume it on your iPad, you can. Even better is that since the app uses the web interface you have the ability to manage your que or make any account adjustments directly from your iPad.

I've been playing around with it for a while now and must say it is very snappy with no lag in the UI and the video content streams flawlessly. This is a must have for all Netflix users out there!

Motorola XH1 Bone-conducting Bluetooth Headset for iPhone

Review: ScreenGuardz Privacy Screens for iPhone

NLU Privacy ScreenGuardz [$19.99 - iMore Store link] come from the same folks who make BodyGuardz and represents the first -- to my knowledge -- 4-way privacy screen for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.

I had the chance to see the ScreenGuardz at CES in January, and was able to test it out throughout Macworld 2010, and it works well. (And yes, they had a picture up for an iPad screen already!)

4-way refers to both vertical and horizontal privacy, meaning that when your iPhone is in portrait or landscape mode, the field of view is obscured to the degree that while you can still see it, anyone sitting next to you trying to spy on you can't. It looks either mostly or completely black to them, depending on the viewing angle.

In terms of drawback, while the view from the front remains clear it does look slightly darker (think Avatar 3D glasses) so you may want to pump up your brightness slightly to compensate. Also, if you want to let the person next to you see your iPhone -- to watch a movie or help with Maps directions, for example -- you're out of luck. There's no such thing as selective privacy!

Application is simple and the case is thin, though you'll feel a slight ridge around the Home button cutout.

If you have sensitive information on your iPhone, or just don't appreciate snoops on the plane, train, or bus (or the desk next to you!) then it's definitely something to check out.

For more, check out the video from Macworld 2010, after the break, where NLU installs a ScreenGuardz on my iPhone (and yes, it stopped Leanna from peeking over my shoulder completely!
