iMore's favorite movies, TV shows, music, and books of 2013

We'll be posting both our 2013 Readers Choice Awards and 2013 Editors Choice Awards soon enough, but there's a reason Apple sells more than just devices, and iTunes offers more than just apps. Music, movies, TV shows, books, and comics have all gone digital. Not only is the idea of linear broadcasts increasingly anachronistic, but the idea of media not being everywhere we are, available at the click of a remote or tap of a screen, is almost a thing of the past. From Mac to iPod to Apple TV to iPhone to iPad, we can now access everything we want to listen to, watch, or read, any time we want, anywhere we are. So, just like devices, apps, and games, we want to recognize the other stuff, the media, that makes our lives so much more enjoyable. These, then, are our favorite movies, music, TV shows, and books of the year!

Google, worried that Microsoft would dominate phones the way they had desktops, and shut them down the way Netscape had been shut down, bought Andy Rubin's company, Android, and set about making a Windows Mobile/BlackBerry/Nokia communicator competitor. Apple, meanwhile adapted their stalled tablet project into the iPhone. And that's when it gets interesting...

Another Monster at the end of this Book...Starring Grover and Elmo! for iPhone and iPad

Another Monster at the end of this Book...Starring Grover and Elmo! is a fantastic interactive children's book for the iPhone and iPad. The story is about a book that Grover and Elmo encounter that is supposed to reveal another monster at its conclusion. Grover is opposed to reading it because books about monsters make him uncomfortable. Elmo, on the other hand, loves monsters and can't wait to get to the end of the book.
