CBS shows come to Verizon V Cast, Congress embraces YouTube, and you can now order a truly bad burrito from your iPhone.

>> CBS comes to Verizon V cast. Congress embraces YouTube and you can order a really bad burrito from your iPhone. Its Tuesday, January 13, I'm Natali Del Conte and it's time to get Loaded. ^M00:00:12 [ Music ] ^M00:00:15 >> Our parent company CBS announced the deal this week that will bring our original shows to Verizon's V Cast. This is Verizon's mobile TV platform and it will soon carry CBS news, shows, such as 60 Minutes and CBS entertainment shows, such as How I Met your Mother. I don't know if it will include Loaded just yet. China will be the first country to sample Microsoft's new Mediaroom Anytime IPTV service. Microsoft will provide the service to a company called Guangzhou Digital Media Group -- thank you to Wilson Tang for helping me pronounced that name. Mediaroom lets users record programs in the future, but also go back and watch programs that have already aired even if they didn't set the system to record it. This is very cool and useful. There's a new way to get internet radio on the iPhone. It's called the Slacker. It already launched for BlackBerry last week. This is the online radio service that's a lot like Pandora or Last.fm. It's streaming music plus user made stations. There's also a Slacker player that's not really all that popular, but the BlackBerry in iPhone applications borrow from the Slacker and that they will play suggested music according to your taste, plus music that's stored on the device a lot like iTunes' Genius. This means you won't have to always be connected via 3G or Wi-Fi to get playlist the way you do with other net radio stations. The app is of course free. Would you pay for a laptop in the same way you pay for a cell phone, subsidized but with the monthly contract? I'm not really sure that I would, but Dell is experimenting with this model. The company is offering the Inspiron Mini 9 which is their netbook for less than a hundred dollars with a two year contract. The contract will be around $60 per month and you can get online over Wi-Fi or 3G anywhere you go through AT&T. The Acer Aspire is already available under this model. But these are netbooks by the end of a two year contract you'll have paid over $1400 for them when you could have just own it outright for $500. This isn't all that logical to me, but if you can think of a used Vaio write me loaded@cnet.com. YouTube has two new channels to help you follow your congressional representatives. As the 111th Congress goes into session YouTube will aggregate channels from members of the senate and members of the house. You can find the main page for US senators at youtube.com/senatehub and the main page for US House of Representative at youtube.com/househub. These pages will direct you to the video pages of each representative assuming they have one. I can't get enough of these speedy text message stories. Apparently, a 13 year old girl from California was so bored during her Christmas break that she resorted to sending a text message every two minutes. This added up to 14,528 text messages in just one month. My fingers hurt just thinking about it. Thankfully, she had an unlimited text messaging plan and thankfully no one in my life wants to text me that often. A text message every two minutes -- read a book. You can now order a burrito from Chipotle from your iPhone. The restaurant which is owned by McDonalds launched an iPhone application that lets you order your tacos or burrito in a bowl straight from the iPhone. You can save your favorite location and even pay through the app. You do have to physically go to the restaurant to pick it up although honestly I don't know why you'd want to. This is one app I will not be getting. I hate Chipotle. They use white rice in their burritos. Those are your headlines for today, but I will be back tomorrow right here from New York with more. Thank you for watching. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV and you've just been Loaded. ^M00:03:37 [ Music ]
