iMovie for iOS has been around since the release of the iPhone 4, but when Apple announced it would be coming to the iPad, tablet users everywhere began drooling. With yesterday's iMovie update, Apple stepped up their game with more flexible iOS video editing, and a better user interface.
Interestingly enough, some folks with a sharp eye at 9to5 Mac found a way to sneak iMovie (which is supposedly only for the iPad 2, iPhone 4, and iPod touch 4th generation) on to the original iPad. Not only does this work, but it's literally like a mobile movie making studio, giving first-generation iPad adopters a way to edit their videos on the go without having to upgrade.
If there’s one group that loves Apple’s iOS device perhaps even more than their parents, it’s toddlers. As every parent knows, keeping them occupied throughout the day can often be a challenge -- and one that the iStoryTime line of apps is ready to come to the rescue.
It's a fact: as your iTunes collection gets bigger, the amount of free space on your drive gets smaller. Sure, you could stuff your computer's internal drive to the gills with as much media as you can jam in there, but as Macs require a reasonable chunk of drive real estate to keep on puttering along in a trouble-free fashion, we'd advise against this storage strategy. What to do? You could buy a larger internal drive for a little more breathing room. You could bite a bullet and delete a few thousand files from your enormous collection of music, movies and television shows, but that's a pretty extreme fix. If neither of these solutions appeal to you, how about transferring part of your iTunes library to a spare external drive that you've got laying around? Yeah, that's the ticket! Here's how to do it.

Steve Jobs wears one style of glasses. One. His iconic John Lennon-style shades are as much a part of his mystique as his Levis 501s and black mock turtle neck. Were Jobs to appear at an Keynote without any of these essentials on his person, the earth could very well spin of its orbital axis and hurtle into the sun. Apple understands that such a cataclysm could effect their bottom line. That's most likely why they filed a patent for a glasses-free 3D projection system.
Netflix has let the lid off of a bit of good news and a minor amount of bad news this morning. The good news is that the media giant has finally made an unlimited streaming-only subscription option available to the media hungry masses for $7.99 a month.

You know how there's exciting news, and then there's exciting news? Well, here it goes: it's time you update the Netflix app on your iPhone and iPod touch, because the app now supports video out. This means exactly what you think it means--you can use your iPhone 4 or 4th-generation iPod touch to send streaming video content available on Netflix directly to your television. All you need is a pair of Apple AV cables to hook up your phone and your TV.
