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.

UPDATED: iOS 4.2 not installing on iPhone, error code 10?

UPDATED: iOS 4.2 not installing on iPhone, error code 10?

iOS 4.2 isn't installing on iPhone for some developers if our email box and a quick search of Twitter are any indication.

It sounds like the install starts fine but then has problems during the baseband update and spits out an error code 10. That's hook it up to Xcode and restore to 4.1 language.

That's also why it's a beta for developers, folks, not for production devices.

UPDATE: Justin Horn from WhenWillApple and the TiPb iPhone forums gi

iOS 4.2 features: Change fonts in Notes [buh bye Marker Felt!]

iOS 4.2 brings with it the ability to change fonts in Notes, traditionally locked down to -- what many type snobs would call the torturous -- Marker Felt.

The new default is Chalkboard, a new option is the system standard Helvetica, and Marker Felt is demoted to last.

Oh happy day. Settings pane after the break.
