Warners: $0.99 iTunes TV rentals too cheap

$0.99 TV show rentals are too cheap according the Warner CEO Barry Meyer, and would hurt full season TV show purchases.

Meyer said the deal was not a good value for the studio subsidiary of Time Warner Inc., which sells permanent downloads shows such as "Gossip Girl" on iTunes for $2.99 each.

I'm running out of quips to make about the oblivious myopia of old media. Seriously.

#FollowFriday @TiPb iPod nano 6 give-away

#FollowFriday @TiPb iPod nano 6 give-away

Want a shiny 6th generation iPod nano for free? Long story short, due to some shipping delays TiPb had to run out and buy some so we could get our review up in a timely manner. That means we have some extra. And that means we're going to give them away to you. Now keep in mind these are review units -- they've been opened, photographed, video recorded, and tested, but gently and lightly and are in mint condition with boxes and cables and all that.

Want one? All you have to do is tweet this to enter:

Yes, iOS 4.2 text tones currently individual, not custom

Yes, iOS 4.2 text tones currently individual, not custom

iOS 4.2 adds the ability to set individual text message tones to your contacts (finally!), but not custom tones, not even ringtones purchased from the iTunes Store. Apple seems to be keeping text tones completely separate from ringtones (and since they're shorter and functionally different -- they don't need to keep playing for a long period of time until you answer -- that may make some sense). Yup, that means you're still limited to the built in choices.

iPad now available in China, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru

iPad is now available in China, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, as previously announced, and as Gizmodo points out, celebrating new Apple gears is a cross-cultural, seemingly universal phenomena.

[Han Ziwen became the first iPad owner in mainland China today, and was carried out of the Beijing Apple store on employees' shoulders. He even made a t-shirt for the occasion: "I BUY IPAD NO 1". Image via Getty]

Cue the folk music. Then go enjoy your new iPads.

Facebook Places now in UK. Are you still using it?

Facebook Places now in UK. Are you still using it?

Facebook Places has gone live in the UK. It lit up in Japan a few days ago as well. No love for Canada or many other countries yet. Still, even in locations where Facebook places has launched, it doesn't seem to have slowed down FourSquare or Gowalla at all.

Is Facebook Places available where you are? Are you using it? If so, let us know how it's been working for you, if not, tell us what's kept you away.

[Thanks English Mike!]

iOS 4.2 features: Set individual text message tone

iOS 4.2 for iPhone seems poised to finally provide yet another hugely requested feature -- set individual text message tones.

Nice to see Apple knocking things off the nagging omissions list. Do I even have to ask if you're going to be using this?

Netflix app on TV via iOS 4.2 AirPlay? Ohellsyeah!

Netflix app on TV via iOS 4.2 AirPlay? Ohellsyeah!

Netflix streaming from iPad or iPhone to your TV via iOS 4.2 AirPlay? That's what Mark Gurman is showing off.

We connected some speakers to an Airport Express and the audio from the Netflix film wirelessly streamed and played perfectly with absolutely no hiccups. When the new Apple TV launches, you’ll be able to wirelessly stream both the video and audio to your television set; that’s right, I said television.

Now if only they let Hulu Plus do that...

Apple prepping subscription plan for newspapers?

Apple prepping subscription plan for newspapers?

Apple may be preparing a subscription plan for newspapers says the Mercury News. When iBooks was announced alongside iPad, but no similar offering for magazines and newspapers, it was curious. When friction resulted from magazines trying to roll their own subscriptions, it was noteworthy. Now, however, a solution might just be in place:

Yahoo! CEO: iAds will fall apart on Apple

Yahoo! CEO: iAds will fall apart on Apple

Yahoo! perhaps doth protest too much as CEO Carol Bartz thinks Apple's iAds will self-destruct:

"That's going to fall apart for them," Bartz said about Apple's iAd service. "Advertisers are not going to have that type of control over them. Apple wants total control over those ads."

Because that strategy has worked so poorly for Apple in the past, what with the dismal failures of iTunes and record lable iTunes, iPod, iPhone, and iPad?

iOS 4.2 features: Find text on Safari web page

iOS 4.2 features: Find text on Safari web page

iOS 4.2 will finally give iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad the ability to find text on a Safari web page. It can be hard to find a specific snippet of text on a long, paragraph strewn web page. On Windows or Mac, you just hit CTL-F or CMD-F, type your text, and off you go. Now in iOS 4.2 beta 1 you just use the regular old search field (still confusingly labeled Google by default) and start typing the text you want to find.

Where previously you only got suggested search terms, now you get a second list at the bottom for words you can search on the page. Tap one and the first match on the page is highlighted in yellow and a set of buttons slide up on the bottom for "Next" and "Done", as well as a counter for how many matches of the word there are on the page, and which one is currently highlighted (e.g., 7/16). Hit next until you find the one you want, hit done when you're finished. If you want to change the find term, the search box is repositioned alongside the controls to make it convenient.

No more manual scanning, no more javascript bookmarklets. Just happy surfing.

One more pic after the break.

iOS 4.2 features: Game Center for iPad [gallery]

iOS 4.2 features: Game Center for iPad [gallery]

iOS 4.2 will bring Game Center to iPad and yes, it will take advantage of the full screen. You'll get a double column-view instead of single like on iPad, and that means your lists (like friends) will on the left and the detail view (like stats) will be on the right.

What's interesting is that beta 1 currently shows a number of icon-shaped outlines "dealt" card-like across Game Center's game table like UI. They don't show any apps yet, but tapping them does indeed take you to the App Store, and each one to a different game.

UPDATE: The outlines are now icons. Looks like they it just took a while to fully populate them.

Everything else looks to be there and be fully operational, from achievements to leaderboards to games.

November can't come fast enough.
