Facebook will make it even easier to tell your friends what you're watching or listening to

There's an update coming down the pike for the official Facebook app that will enable users to automatically tag the music and TV that they're listening/watching in their status updates. As demoed in the video above, the system works by tapping a button when creating a new status — not unlike the "moods" feature Facebook added last year, and then it uses audio ID software to identify the music, TV show, or movie that is blasting its sounds into your vicinity, and then tags your status with that information.

Veronica Mars movie now live on iTunes!

It's not normal that a movie goes live on iTunes the same day it hits movie theaters but then Rob Thomas' Veronica Mars isn't exactly your normal movie. Not only does it reunite the cast of the original TV show, including Kristen Bell (House of Lies) but it received its backing on Kickstarter, the popular crowd-funding platform. Veronica Mars, if you're not familiar with it, was delightful — Buffy sans slayers. It lasted two and half seasons before it was cancelled and the movie's been a longtime coming. I backed the Kickstarter, bought tickets to the premier last night, and am download the digital version now. If you've been waiting for it as well, it's time to bring it on!

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!

Netflix teases original movies, would debut on service, in theaters, same day. Swoon.

And yes, they'd debut on Netflix's service - including iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV - day and date with theatrical release. Netflix's Ted Sarandos, as quote by Peter Kafka on AllThingsD:

Thor 2: The Dark World hits theaters this fall, but you can get lots of great Thor stuff from iTunes right now

The first teaser trailer for Thor 2: The Dark World has hit the internet and... I don't know what to make of it yet. I enjoyed Malekith, the accursed dark elf, as Walt Simonson rendered him in the Thor comics decades ago, but I don't get any real sense of his character here and how it plays into whatever greater story arc they have for Thor this time around. And his look in the film doesn't really wow me so far.

New Iron Man 3 trailer is high on tech, low on laughs

The last Iron Man 3 trailer looked disturbingly like a Dark Knight Rises rehash and while the new one is slightly more fun, it still doesn't show much of the humor of the first two films. Given how belabored and off-key Dark Knight Rises was, I'm nervous.

Still, it's Old Shell Head looking even more Golden Avenger than usual, with War Machine getting the Iron Patriot paint on, and the often superb Ben Kingsley crammed into the many rings of the Mandarin, so while a lot could go wrong, there's still every chance the mighty Marvel movie machine gets this right. Or right enough that, come repulsor and uni-beam time, I won't care.

Iron Man 3 lands in theaters on April 25 or May 3, depending on where you live. In the meantime, there's tons of great content to load up on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Here are some of my favorites.
