ESRB “T for Teens” ratings system dismissed by iOS and Android

What very well could have been the next generation of rating content on a scale that disallows kids from playing the most violent and inappropriate games by their parents has essentially been shot dead before it was active by none other than the two largest mobile app providers on the planet, Apple and Google.

Apple Ends TV Episode Rentals, Sticks with Purchases

Apple Ends TV Episode Rentals, Sticks with Purchases

If you're one of the 10 people in the world that actually simply rented a bunch of television shows from iTunes over the last year or so, you're going to need a tissue. Apple has decided to pull the plug on all TV show rentals from iTunes, leaving only two options for the viewing of TV-related media: the purchase of individual episodes or the "Season Pass" for a year of your favorite show.
