iPhone Apps Dial Up the Coolness

Despite Apple's restrictive API and general grumbling about the platform, cool iPhone apps keep showing up every week. Two notable resent releases include Google Earth and CoolIris. These are both apps that are very slick and useful on the desktop, and promise to be even more handy in your pocket. Google earth on a device with GPS and other location services will be a near killer app for some even in its first release. CoolIris, while already pretty functional, will get better with time as they add location based services as well.

It looks like Microsoft will release a Blu-Ray drive for the 360 after all.

Netflix adds Starz

Netflix has just moved to add Starz Play to its growing line up of 'Watch Instantly' titles. This brings about 2,500 feature movies and concerts to the service. This is a big deal. The biggest complaint with the service previously has been the lack of recent titles. No longer. The new content is included with your Netflix subscription price.

I am really excited by this. We are already using this service regularly and now I expect to use it even more. This totally justifies my Roku purchase, and adds tremendous value to the upcoming 360 dashboard update. Go Netflix go.
