Michael Jackson on Ping

Culture
-It's Thursday, December 2nd. I'm Natali Morris and it's time to get Loaded. Verizon is about to turn on the switch to its LTE4G network. They promised they would have 4G in 2010; looks like they'll make it just in time. The LTE, or Long Term Evolution, network will launch on December 5th in a number of markets including New York, Chicago, L.A., and San Francisco. YouTube is going to let you skip ads. TrueView is a new ad format that gives you control, letting you bypass ads that you don't care about. You do have to wait a minimum of 5 seconds. You'll see it countdown. Advertisers are only charged for ads that you watch, not ads that you skip. They seem to like this because they don't wanna advertise to someone who doesn't care much less pay to advertise to someone who doesn't care. Microsoft has launched a new rewards program in Xbox Live. Xbox Live rewards is like a frozen yogurt card. You earn freebies with your loyalty such as 200 points for a 1-year membership. Amazon has launched its own version of Wikipedia called shopping-enabled Wikipedia pages. It's an Amazon page that has Wikipedia content related to Amazon listings. Of course, you can purchase the related thing from these pages. This will help you make more informed choices about what you're buying, I suppose. DISH Network customers can now watch content from their DVR on the iPad. DISH Network launched the Remote Access app that lets you watch both live and recorded shows on your cable box, but only if you have a Sling Media product like the Sling Adapter. If you do have that, you can also set your DVR to record shows. The app is $30. Netflix is adding more indie films to its Watch Instantly movie streaming service. Netflix struck a deal with the studio FilmDistrict which produced movies such as "The Departed" and "Aviator." The deal gives the license to first rent theatrically-released films through Netflix. Google has added an update to Gmail that lets you mute e-mail chains easier. This is when there's an e-mail conversation with several people that you have just had enough with. If you mute, you no longer will see all those replies. But now, if someone sends a reply only to you, you will see it. You can also un-mute a lot easier as an option in the pull-down menu. And finally, a new song from Michael Jackson is available exclusively through Apple's Ping Music Network that lives inside of iTunes. Of course, the song is not really new. Jackson died last year, but it is a song called "Much Too Soon" that Jackson wrote in the '80s and never released. Those are your headlines for today. I will see you tomorrow. I'm Natali Morris for CNET.com and you've just been Loaded.
