Smartphones and tablets to eclipse PC sales in 18 months?

Google's Andy Rubin comments on iTunes and iPhone, shows of Android 3.0 tablet

Yesterday at D:DiveIntoMobile, Google's Android chief, Andy Rubin had some interesting comments about iTunes and iPhone, and showed off Motorola's upcoming Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" tablet. When asked if Google had any plans to start their new music store off with downloads, similar to how Apple's iTunes does it, Rubin's response was quick and to the point:

We could build that 10 times over... (it's) not the right experience.

Rubin also said he would like to see users have an intimate connection to music again like he had as a young kid when he would go to music stores to purchase albums. On the subject of iPhone:

TiPb TV 5: To Jailbreak or not to Jailbreak?

To Jailbreak or not to Jailbreak, that is the question. Or more importantly, who should consider Jailbreaking and who would be better off with an Apple-pure iPhone. Most of our TiPb regulars have already know where they stand but for new users it can be a big decision. That's the topic for the fifth episode of our new, conversational video show, TiPb TV!

Rene and I go over the benefits and drawbacks of Jailbreak, the ability to customize, run Cydia apps and tweaks, and use your iPhone the way you want vs. the stability, protection, and simplicity Apple provides.

Maybe you want an iPhone that "just works" and you never have to spend any time on, or maybe you want to spend your time tweaking every last little pixel and setting. Either way, if you're considering Jailbreaking but just aren't sure check out the latest episode of TiPb TV and we'll help you decide!

iTunes sending out free movie rentals

iTunes sending out free movie rentals

Apple started sending out free iTunes movie rental codes to iTunes users today. The promo code will allow you to rent one of the 8,500 available movies.

Redeem your free movie rental below, and start watching one of your favorite movies on iTunes. Watch what you want, when you want. Enjoy movie rentals on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, the all-new Apple TV, or on your computer. You have 30 days from the moment you rent a movie to start watching, and 24 hours to finish it.

Apple has not indicated the reason behind this promotion, but we're not complaining - we'll gladly accept a free rental. Perhaps this is Apple's way of saying "Happy Holidays".

Who's received a free rental code? What do you plan to rent? Do you plan to watch it on your iPhone or iPad?

Apple now selling iPad gift cards

Apple now selling iPad gift cards

Apple Stores are now selling iPad gift cards. Actually, let's rephrase that - Apple now has the option to package Apple gift cards in a giant piece of cardboard labeled as an "iPad Gift Card" and stamped with a picture of an iPad. The gift card itself is the same one Apple has always offered - sliver with a white Apple logo in the center.

The interesting thing to note is that this means iPads are now able to be purchased with a gift card. In the past, it was required to have a debit or credit card to buy an iPad (as with iPhones), so Apple must have changed their policy.
