Apple adds iCloud TV Show re-downloading to iPhone, iPad

Our writer at large, Chad Garrett, spotted TV Shows in the Cloud today on his iPhone. It seems Apple has pulled the trigger on TV Show re-downloads, much as they've always allowed for apps and previously announced for music. It's limited to TV Shows (no movies), and to the US for now, but it's nice to see Apple adding functionality to iCloud so quickly -- even before the formal launch this fall.

Update: Not all shows yet, apparently. Perhaps some networks haven't (yet) agreed to be part of the service?

Last.fm will soon require subscription to stream to iPhone

Beginning February 15, Last.fm will require a subscription to stream music to your iPhone and it will be ad-free. Here's what Last.fm's VP of production, blog Matthew Hawn had to say:

On the Last.fm website an ad-supported, free-to-listeners model is what supports our online radio services in the US, UK and Germany. In other markets and on emerging mobile and home entertainment devices, it is not practical for us to deliver an ad supported radio experience, but instead, we will migrate to what we believe is the highest quality, lowest cost ad-free music service in the world.
