Google may be testing a mobile payment option in San Francisco and New York, Twitter lets you make your account more secure using HTTPS, and Netflix may be bidding for an original TV production from David Fincher.

IT'S WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16th. I'M NATALI MORRIS, AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] NETFLIX MAY BECOME A PRODUCTION HOUSE LIKE HBO AND SHOWTIME. THE CALLED HOUSE OF CARDS. THE SHOW HAS BEEN CREATED BY THE SAME PERSON WHO DIRECTED THE FACEBOOK MOVIE, DAVID FINCHER. NETFLIX HAS NOT YET $100 MILLION. [*] T-MOBILE ANNOUNCED THE SIDEKICK 4G. IT IS THE FIRST SIDEKICK THAT IS AN ANDROID PHONE. IT STILL HAS WHAT THEY CALL THE POP-TILE HINGE THAT OPENS TO A QWERTY KEYBOARD. IT ALSO HAS GROUP TEXTING, AND FRIENDS OR GROUPS ACROSS PLATFORMS. IT COMES OUT THIS SPRING. YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT IT AT SIDEKICK-DOT-T-MOBILE-DOT-COM. [*] YOU CAN NOW WATCH LIVE BASEBALL ON FACEBOOK. LAST WEEK THE SITE HAD ITS FIRST MOVIE RENTALS AND NOW SPORTS. THE MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL FACEBOOK PAGE STARTED STREAMING PRE-SEASON GAMES THIS WEEK. YOU CAN WATCH ONE GAME FOR FREE BUT IF YOU LIKE IT, YOU'LL HAVE TO PAY $120 PER YEAR FOR MLB-DOT-TV TO CONTINUE TO WATCH ON THE SITE. [*] FEW MONTHS. USING NEAR FIELD COMMUNICATIONS SHORT-RANGE WIRELESS SYSTEM, CUSTOMERS IN NEW YORK AND SAN FRANCISCO WILL BE ABLE TO USE SPECIALIZED READERS. THIS HAS NOT YET BEEN CONFIRMED BY GOOGLE YET BUT YOU'VE GOT TO THINK IT ISN'T FAR OFF. [*] GOOGLE IS GOING TO UPDATE BLOGGER LATER THIS YEAR. SCREENS OF THE REVAMPED SITE WERE ANNOUNCED THIS WEEK AT SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST. IT IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A CLEANER INTERFACE AND NEW PUBLISHING TOOLS. [*] EBOOK FLING. IT IS SORT OF LIKE A DATING SITE FOR EBOOK OWNERS. YOU POST A BOOK YOU WANT TO SHARE AND FIND SOMEONE WHO WANTS IT. YOU LEND A CREDITS FOR A SUCCESSFUL BORROWING TRANSACTION. IF YOU DON'T HAVE CREDITS, YOU CAN PAY $1.99 TO BORROW A BOOK. [*] YOU CAN NOW USE TWITTER IN A MORE SECURE WAY. TWITTER ADDED THE OPTION TO USE THE SITE IN HTTPS MODE PERMANENTLY. YOU COULD USE //TWITTER. COM BUT NOW YOU CHECKING "ALWAYS USE HTTPS." IT MAY SLOW YOU DOWN A LITTLE BUT IT'S WORTH IT. WE SUGGEST YOU DO IT. [*] UNLEASHED INTERNET EXPLORER 9 THIS WEEK. THE UDPATE TO THE POPULAR BROWSER LAUNCHED IN MONDAY AT SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST IN TEXAS. IT IS CHROME. IT IS ALSO WELL REVIEWED HERE ON CNET. IT DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS XP THOUGH, WHICH IS A BURN CONSIDERING BETWEEN 40 AND 50 PERCENT OF THE WORLD'S COMPUTERS ARE RUNNING XP. [*] THAT IS YOUR NEWS FOR THE DAY. REMEMBER CNET-DOT-COM-SLASH-LOADED FOR LINKS TO THE STORIES WE DISCUSSED TODAY. I'M NATALI MORRIS FOR CNET AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
