Yup you read that right- YouTube is now playing full length movies online for FREE! This is big news, and a real blow to Hulu, which until now, was the only LEGAL (yeah we know YouTube always had movies online for free ) way to watch TV shows and movies. Like Hulu, advertisements will be inserted by the video, you know to keep this all free.
Don’t get too excited though: these movies are right now only from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (aka MGM), and the movies aren’t among the most recent — like the old American Gladiators (not the TV show that was on NBC a few years back).
But hey, the big thing here is that movies are starting to come to YouTube, and hopefully soon we’ll have some more modern movies, possibly from even some other companies (though don’t count on FOX or NBC/Universal coming soon- the two companies created Hulu).
Anyways, what you think- you gonna watch more movies from the internet now, which site would you rather use for movies- Hulu or YouTube? Sound off in the comments.

Walmart ad for this weekend sale
Wanted an 80 GB PS3 but the price was keeping you away? Run down to your local Walmart and pick one up this weekend, because although the PS3 won’t receive a price cut this holiday season (Sony already said no to the idea), you can get a $100 gift card when your purchase the 80 GB system for $399 over the weekend.
One major catch you should be aware of: this offer is in-store only (or so we know) and starts on Saturday at 8 am (yup for those of you who really– and we mean really – want this, you’ll need to get up pretty early).
$100 off a HD video game system which doubles as a Blu-Ray player is pretty good deal, but remember: for those who don’t want to give up their weekend to wait in line for this deal, I’m pretty sure there will be many other price cuts for all of the video game systems (including the Xbox 360 and Wii) in the very near future as Black Friday– the major sales day following Thanksgiving– and the holiday season approaches.
What you think- are you going out this weekend to pick up for yourself a PS3, or more interested in going for a Xbox 360 or a Wii? Oh, and feel free to check out the other weekend deals in the ad and let us know if your interested in any of ‘em.
Google Desktop’s Sidebar and Gadgets
Do you enjoy knowing the latest news? How is the new Guns N’ Roses album? Did Plaxico Burress get 10 catches? How are my stocks doing (yeah right)? Well then Google desktop is right for you. Sitting on the right of your desktop– or anywhere, for that matter– this application can give you breaking news, the weather, it can even look stuff up on Wikipedia without even booting up your internet browser! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. One other personal favorite feature is what the application is named for: googling your desktop. Using Google’s famed searching method, it can mine your laptop for whatever you’re looking for in a manner far superior to your computer’s built-in search feature.
For those of you who would like to download this great application (available for Windows Vista/XP, Mac OS X and Linux), click here.
Motorola Zine for T-Mobile
Looking for a good T-Mobile phone that won’t burn a hole in your wallet? Then look no further. Today T-Mobile released the Motorola ZINE for $99 on a 2 year contract. Yup thats $99. So what makes this phone so great that you should consider this? See below for all the features.
Blackberry Storm- Your’s for $100 bucks?
Yup, you read that right. Rumor — and by rumor we mean MAJOR rumor — is that Verizon is actually considering pricing the Blackberry Storm at $99, making it $100 cheaper than the 8 GB iPhone 3G, and $30 and $80 cheaper than the Instinct and G1 respectively. This would be awesome especially with the holiday season right around the corner (its November now folks!).
The Storm is expected to launch any day this month (when exactly is still unknown), and at this price Verizon will likely require a very expensive Blackberry plan for it.
For all of those who wanna know what’s so great with this Blackberry Storm, check out our previous post here.
But we gotta ask- would an $100 Storm be enough to make you join “The Network” or are you gonna stick with an iPhone, Instinct, Dare or G1? Would you buy one of those other phones if they also got a nice holiday price cut? Sound off in the comments.
Info from Techland (a Fortune/CNN blog).
There are some major rumors on some really sick phones coming soon to Verizon- and no this isn’t just the Blackberry Storm. So if its not the Storm then what phones are we talking about? Read on! More >
