It's Tuesday, March 8th. I'm Natali Morris and it's time to get Loaded. Warner Brothers is going to start showing movies on Facebook. The studio is testing a program that will sell or rent movies on Facebook fan pages. Starting today, you can use Facebook credits to rent the Dark Knight. It costs 30 Facebook credits or $3 and you can rent the movie for 48 hours, watching it in Facebook. Google Maps for Android will help you get out of traffic jams. Google Maps Navigation Beta is a mapping service that will automatically route you around traffic. You just start the navigation as normal from the navigation app or within Google Maps and it will choose the fastest route. You can override to a different route if you think you know something the app does not. This works on Android devices in North America and Europe. YouTube has purchased Next New Networks, a web video production company. Terms of the deal were not disclosed but it's rumored that the acquisition was worth $50 million. HBO is expected to relax its blackout agreements with major movie studios to make way for UltraViolet, the cloud video system that the movie industry hopes will replace DVDs. When new movies come out, HBO often requires them to be blacked out on video services like iTunes or Netflix if HBO is going to carry these movies. HBO has these agreements with the top six major movie studios including Warner Brothers and 20th Century Fox. HBO is expected to relax the agreements in order to advance the UltraViolet industry. Wimbledon is going to be broadcast in 3D this year. This is the famous tennis tournament played in England over the summer. Sony has partnered with the All England Club to broadcast the men and women's singles finals in 3D in select cinemas around the world, so not necessarily in your home 3D channel but in select sporting spectator locations. And if you have an unlimited data plan on your iPad, you don't have to worry about losing it if and when you upgrade to iPad 2. AT&T has confirmed that owners of the original Wi-Fi plus 3G iPad who have held on to their unlimited data plans can port those same data plans over to iPad 2. And, finally, Consumer Reports released a new study that shows that 30% of teens do text while driving. Consumer Reports is working with the Department of Transportation on an awareness campaign and the study done around this campaign is disappointing. Older drivers were less likely to do this, only 9% of them admitted to this bad behavior. If we've said it one, we've said it a million times, stop that. That's your news of the day. I will see you tomorrow. I'm Natali Morris for CNET and you've just been Loaded.
