Apple adds iCloud TV Show re-downloading to iPhone, iPad

Apple adds iCloud TV Show re-downloading to iPhone, iPad

Our writer at large, Chad Garrett, spotted TV Shows in the Cloud today on his iPhone. It seems Apple has pulled the trigger on TV Show re-downloads, much as they've always allowed for apps and previously announced for music. It's limited to TV Shows (no movies), and to the US for now, but it's nice to see Apple adding functionality to iCloud so quickly -- even before the formal launch this fall.

Are you seeing TV shows under your purchased content in iTunes.app?

Update: Not all shows yet, apparently. Perhaps some networks haven't (yet) agreed to be part of the service?

Apple TV 4.3 update streams purchased shows, adds Vimeo video

Apple had finally released iOS 4.3 for Apple TV 2, adding the ability to stream purchased shows via iCloud (I'm betting this is US only?) and watch Vimeo video. As noted by Apple:

  • iTunes TV Shows: Purchase your favorite TV shows directly from the iTunes Store, and watch the shows you already own, commercial-free in HD.
  • Vimeo: Browse and play videos from Vimeo, access your video inbox, and mark videos you want to watch later.

If you've gotten the update, let me know if you notice any other changes and/or improvements.

Create geometric trees with Geom-e-Tree for iPhone and iPad

Create geometric trees with Geom-e-Tree for iPhone and iPad

Geom-e-Tree is a great geometry app that creates fractals-like trees and has been updated with new themes.

Create an infinite number of fractal-like trees with a few simple gestures. Surprise yourself and friends with the variety and complexity of the patterns you discover just by changing the number, angle, and the common ratio of your tree's branches. It's math and it's art - and it's totally captivating.

  • Touch the screen to make your tree grow and change.
  • Watch your tree morph in real time.
  • Increase the number of branches for fuller trees.
  • Lengthen or shorten the branches to make the canopy change shape.
  • Spread the branches up to 359 degrees for kaleidoscopic patterns.
  • Choose from 20 serious, zany, colorful themes.
  • Explore the many levels of this geometric landscape on your iPod, iPhone, or iPad!

We've added rainbow and "psychedelic" themes, some wild black and white themes (Magpie and Op Art), as well as a few monochromatic themes (India Ink and Pop Sticks). The new Themes tab displays all the themes and allows you to choose one for the current Tree. The Arboreturm remembers the themes of newly added trees. Geom-e-Tree also includes all the themes from our new version of Geom-e-Twee!

In mathematics, a fractal is is geometric shape that is split into parts, each of which is a smaller copy of the whole. This app is great twist on that idea and it's fun to watch your trees grow. They even snuck in some famous fractals! Even my 11 month old daughter enjoys this app - she stared at it in awe of the colorful trees growing.

Geom-e-Tree is available on the iPhone and iPad for $2.99. The junior app, Geom-e-Twee is available on the iPhone and iPad for free for a short time.

Screenshots and video after the break.

Future iPads, iPhones to be built by Robots

Future iPads, iPhones to be built by Robots

Xinhuanet reports that future iPads and iPhones might just be built by robots, that is if manufacturing giant Foxconn goes ahead with plans to replace workers with up to 1 million mechs:

[Foxconn] currently has 10,000 robots and the number will be increased to 300,000 next year and 1 million in three years, according to [Foxconn founder and chairman, Terry Gou].

Gou announced the robotics initiative during a company dance party, which presumably they'll have less of in the future. Unless, of course, they're replacing workers with dancing robots.

EA: Fastest growing gaming console is iPad

Speaking with IndustryGamers, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello puts the previous Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony-led console market into post-iPad perspective:

Consoles used to be 80% of the industry as recently as 2000. Consoles today are 40% of the game industry, so what do we really have?

We have a new hardware platform and we’re putting out software every 90 days. Our fastest growing platform is the iPad right now and that didn’t exist 18 months ago.

App for That: How to send videos to the cloud

There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, George asks:

Next Month, I'm going to a YouTube gathering in London called Summer In The City. As its a YouTube gathering there is going to be alot of video taking. However, I'm only going to take my 16GB iPhone (and clothes and stuff), so was wondering if there was an app that would let me store the videos when I ran out of room, as I can't put it on a computer or anything.

To see what we found for George, follow along after the break!
