Game Center Terms of Service updated

Game Center Terms of Service updated

Apple has recently changed the terms of service for their Game Center application and the main difference is that Game Center will now use your Apple ID instead of your gamer tag when making a friend request.

You will still be able to use a handle/username for Game Center, it just appears as if Apple wants us all to be more personable and authentic with each-other when becoming friends. What are your thoughts about users seeing your full name when requesting friends on Game Center? Does it increase accountability, reduce privacy, or both?

Imagining iPad 2

Imagining iPad 2

iPad 2 rumors have been making their way through the internet pretty much since the day after the current iPad debuted but lately they've picked up considerable speed. Leaks have come from supposed manufacturers and suppliers, of course, but given the time of year and Apple's refresh cycles for iOS devices to date, we could be seeing an iPad 2 announcement as early as January/February and a release in April. Either way it's coming. We all know it's coming. (We've even discussed whether or not you should get an iPad now or wait for iPad 2 next year). But what will it be like?

Based on rumors to date, I'm going make some guesses... after the break.

Steve Jobs: Apple to add AirPlay video to Safari, App Store apps in 2011

Steve Jobs: Apple to add AirPlay video to Safari, App Store apps in 2011

According to another purported email response from Steve Jobs, the AirPlay feature introduced in iOS 4.2 for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad should be updated in 2011:

The question:

Hi, I recently updated both my iPhone 4 and iPad to 4.2. I think my favourite feature is airplay. This is seriously amazing and makes sharing content seamless. I just purchased Apple TV and was wondering are you ever going to make airplay video work for videos in safari and 3rd party apps? I hope to get a response. :)

The Steve Jobs reply:

Yep, hope to add these features to Airplay in 2011.

Sent from my iPhone

While most of us wanted AirPlay to support anything that used the standard iOS video controller, the current implementation is severely limited, providing audio-only streaming options for the most part, with video available only from the built-in iPod app (and Video app on iPod touch and iPad), and YouTube app.

This limitation has been removed for developers via one line of code and for Jailbreakers via AirVideoEnabler, so it would be outstanding to see Apple fix it out of the box for everyone.

Unfortunately, 2011 is a ways away still, and kind of puts the kibosh on rumors of an iOS 4.3 update in December (unless that's really only to support subscription newspapers for iPad).

VIdeo of AirPlay in action after the break... If you've tried out -- or have been waiting to try out -- AirPlay streaming to Apple TV, let us know your thoughts!
