Netflix announced that it had updated its iOS app with new features specifically for iPhone and iPad users running iOS 7. The updated app now supports full HD video streaming and AirPlay streaming between the Apple TV set-top box and your smartphone. The updated version 5.0 of the app is available for download now.

Rdio finally kicked off free music streaming in the United States via mobile devices today. The Rdio app is available for iOS and Android users and while it plays with no commercials, users don't get to choose the songs they listen to.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
