>> You can finally stream Netflix movies and shows to your TV.
>> Netflix's just announced the Netflix's player by Roku, which is a set top box that lets you scream movies and shows to your TV over your Wi-fi connection. Last year Netflix's added the option to stream shows to your PC, but until now it wasn't possible to take that content to your actual TV. The Netflix's player lets you do that and the set only cost one hundred dollars. There are a few downsizes, the numbers of titles available in the watch now library, still pretty paltry [assumed spelling]. There's no surround sound and it puts yet another box under your TV. Still it's a step in the right direction. You can read our full review of the Netflix's player at www.cnet.com. Napster announced today that its entire catalogue of MP3's are DRM-free. Now, before you go big deal, Amazon already does this, consider the fact that Napster's catalogue is three times as large as Amazon. Napster has over six million DRM-free songs, five hundred thousands albums, four hundred thousand artists and a large Indie catalogue. All of this comes with a launch of Napster 4.5, which is compatible with every operating system. Nintendo held a big launch event for Wii Fit yesterday in Central Park. Of course, I couldn't wait to test it out, so I put on my workout gear and headed up town.
>> Not to brag or anything but I'm pretty good at it. ^M00:01:28 [ Music ] ^M00:01:38
>> This is Wii Fit. It's a new game for Nintendo Wii that promotes fitness, health, aerobics, athletics, weight control. This is the Wii balance board right here. It's going to measure your center of balance, your stability and every little movement you do with your feet, front, forward, side, right and left. It's going to take off and therefore react to the game.
>> I was really close.
>> Okay, let's do yoga. And I'll have to give you this disclaimer, I taught yoga for four-years, so I have a bit of an unfair advantage. So you're actually doing quite well right now. And you are a yoga trainer officially. [Inaudible].
>> I told you [inaudible] wasn't mine.
>> There you go. ^M00:02:23 [ Music ] ^M00:02:30
>> So who did you like your first Wii Fit training?
>> It was fun, actually. It really was. I enjoy anything fitness oriented anyway. I thought I had better balance though. I really actually want to go back and do it again, but I don't have the time.
>> How'd you like it?
>> Oh, I loved it. The balance is really terrific, a real challenge. And I just ran over here literally, so I was prepped. And it still wasn't enough.
>> Does it continue to get progressively harder as it learns your fitness?
>> So if you say, let's say I want to loose five pounds in two weeks. It's going to push you. And it's only going to give you games that really will help you achieve that.
>> Wii Fit will be available on Wednesday and it'll cost 89.99. Google launched a beta version of Google Health on Monday. The company's been talking about doing this for a long time. It's a database of everything related to your own personal health. It tracks your medications, test results, age, weight, doctor's visits, etcetera. It communicates directly with various pharmacies and medical groups in order to keep this information automated, but you can also input the data manually. The only downside is that it's an all or nothing ordeal. So if you grant someone access to your medical records, they can see pretty much everything there, not just bits and pieces. Still as someone who recently moved to a new state and had to find all new doctors and then give them all of my medical history manually, I am thrilled for this tool. You can explore for yourself at www.google.com/health. EA games is giving Take-Two Interactive a take three. The company extended the deadline that Take-Two has to respond to its takeover bid by another month. This is the third extension. The second deadline came and went this weekend with no response, so EA is going to let them think about it a bit longer. Most analyses are expecting EA to come up with more then just an extension though. After Grand Thief Auto's huge launch, most people thought that EA would bring more cash to the table. They still might, but we'll have to wait until June to know for sure. Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg would like a word with the higher ups at Google. This is after he sent them a pretty big slap in the face last week by saying that Facebook will have nothing to do with Friend Connect, Google social networking application. Facebook said that Friend Connect does not protect user data. They failed to mention that it competes with its own Facebook connect and could quite possibly make Facebook obsolete. Zuckerberg told reporters in Tokyo that he wants to, quote talk to Google about this and see if there's way we can make it work. See, Microsoft getting back together with Yahoo, Facebook making up with Google, Spring is here and love is in the air. Those are all your headlines for today. Tune in tomorrow when we take a look at a green movement in Pittsburgh.
