Loaded: Make phone calls from Gmail

1:57 /

You can now stream Netflix on your iPhone or iPod, Craigslist is being asked to stop their adult services section, and you can make voice calls in Gmail.

It's Thursday, August 26th. I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. GMail is letting users make voice calls. Anyone with GMail can call any phone number in the US for free. You can also link your GMail and Google Voice accounts. You won't need a Google Voice account unless you want to make international calls, but if your accounts are linked, then your inbox will be notified when someone calls. Calls made in the US and Canada are free through the end of the year and calls made to outside countries will cost 2 cents a minute. The service should be up and running today. If you want streaming Netflix on your iPhone or iPod, you can have it. The app is available for free now and if you have a Netflix account then you can stream movies over Wi-Fi and 3G and manage your Instant Queue right from your device. Craigslist is being asked to discontinue their adult services section. Attorney generals in 17 stats are saying that the adult services section is recognized as prostitution ads including trafficking children. Craigslist says they support the attorneys general in ending child trafficking. The site's founder, Craig Newmark, says they are doing more than any other site to help filter out underaged prostitution. Apple released a security update for Mac OS10. The update fixes vulnerabilities in the current OSX so if you haven't updated yet, you can do so by using Software Update. And Windows 7 will have a new feature that lets you play between your handheld and a console. Microsoft says they're working on phone to console real time, although it won't be available at launch. What they will have at launch is something called companion-type gaming where you play a level on your phone to unlock a special weapon or feature or level for the console version of that game. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Mark Licea with CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
