People often have a fascination with watching bad movies.  Now you can do so on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch for free with a new app called Popcornflix

The app lets you search by actor's name, provided you know the actors name that you probably never heard of, or by title or genre.

The downside to free you ask?  Well besides being bad movies you also get some ads to go with it.  There is no AirPlay support either.

But either way, if you have time to kill this app is the answer.

Popcornflix can stream movies over WiFi or 3G, but if you use 3G and your on an unlimited plan, particularly from AT&T, be prepared to be throttled if you exceed a certain amount of data, as we have talked about in the past on our podcasts.  The Popcornflix app requires iOS 5.0 or later as well.

Google's new "Google Location Server" is to map out locations of wireless networks as part of their data collection. 

The trick to not showing up in their service is to add the "_nomap" to the end of your wireless network name (SSID).  So, as an example, if you are one of the many Netgear users who have the name as the default, "netgear" you would need to use the admin interface on your router or access point and rename it to "netgear_nomap" (without the quotes).  Now your access point will not show up in Google's Wi-Fi network mapping.

This task of renaming an access point may not be a big deal for the experienced user, but for the common user, who often doesn't even have security set on their access point, may prove a challenge.
