Loaded: Droid 2 on deck

2:26 /

Netflix adds three major movie studios to its movie service, Blockbuster brings video games to its home delivery service, and you can preorder the Motorola Droid 2 today.

It's Wednesday, August 11th. I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. The Motorola Droid II goes on pre-sale today. The phone runs FroYo and Flash 10.1. It has an improved slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a faster processor. The display is 3.7 inches. It also has a 5-megapixel camera and 8 gigs of internal storage with an additional 8 gig SD card. It also comes with the Swype keyboard. It sells for $199 with a two-year contract on Verizon and you can grab one in store on Thursday. Netflix is adding movies from Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate, and MGM to its online roster. Netflix reportedly will pay around $900 million to EPIX, a company that holds the rights to distributing the three major movie companies. The deal goes into effect September 1st, and when said major blockbuster comes to the theaters, a few months later, it will come to EPIX and three months after that, you can stream it on Netflix. And Blockbuster wants to be a lot like Netflix and Game5. The company is adding video games to its home delivery rental service. Memberships for unlimited movie and game rentals still cost $8.99. Blockbuster has a selection of over 3000 games for the Xbox, Xbox 360, Playstation 2 and 3, and the Wii. And Hong Kong is jumping on the 3D bandwagon, with porn. A Hong Kong-based adult film company says they're shooting the world's first 3D hardcore porn which is interesting because a little birdie told me it's been on the web for a while now. The adult film has a $3.2 million budget and while the Blu-ray Disc Association refuses to allow adult content, DVD and digital would be the most likely method of distribution. Viewers will just have to settle for the lame red and blue polarized glasses, no active shutter here. And Apple is replacing all first-generation iPod Nanos that overheat in Japan. Reportedly, Apple Japan had 34 minor incidents involving the iPod Nano overheating. The company claims that an external battery maker provided the batteries and the new generation models are not affected by the same problem. Apple says to contact Apple Support to get the entire unit replaced. Those are all your headlines for today. I'm Mark Licea with CNET.com, and you've just been loaded.
