If you find yourself a little unimpressed with Netflix
's Instant selection and you're needing to rent something a bit newer right now
, the new iPad-optimized version of the mSpot
movie streaming app should fit all up in your niche. For between $2.99 and $3.99 you can rent and watch a movie streaming right to your little slab of delight over either 3G or WiFi, though we're told those who do it via 802.11 can expect higher quality. You can also rent movies on your home computer, pause them there, and then resume playback on your iPad right where you left off. Handy when it's time to run to the train and you just can't wait to see whether George Clooney's Up in the Air
character manages to find room for true companionship in his backpack.
