Netflix splits in two

Culture
-It's Monday, September 19, 2011. I'm Wilson Tang on cnet.com and it's time to get loaded. If you get DVDs by mail from Netflix, that red envelope will soon have the name Quickster printed on it. Netflix is putting both its DVD by mail and streaming services into 2 separate entities, 2 different names, 2 different websites with 2 different user accounts needed. In a few weeks, Quickster will be the name of the company that does DVD by mail, and the service will also add video game rentals. The online streaming service will keep the Netflix's name. If you're confused annoyed from the changes, Netflix is well aware the company cofounder and CEO Reed Hastings is responding to thousands of angry comments on the Netflix blog after writing an apology and explanation about the decision saying this is a move to help strengthen the selection of shows on the streaming service. AT&T's new LTE 4G new 4G network went live in 5 areas this weekend, but you won't be out tapping to the faster network with any of the current smartphones. However, there are few devices that can access the faster LTE 4G including the HTC Jetstream android tablet and the Elevate 4G Mobile Hotspot. AT&T will expand LTE to 50 markets by the end of the year compared that to Verizon which has 4G LTE in 143 markets and has several smartphones that can tap into the faster network. If you're thinking, hey I've bought an AT&T 4G phone, well that only works on a slightly less fast speed of 4G called HSPA plus. Facebook is expected to launch a new platform to make it easier to share what media you're currently listening or watching. Facebook will the make the announcement on Thursday at its F8 Developers Conference in San Francisco according to the New York Times. The new development will supposedly connect with music services like Spotify and Rhapsody and video services like Vivo. You might wanna watch your head this week. NASA is expecting a 6 ton dead satellite to crash into earth about 26 pieces would like hit Friday, give or take a day, although no one has been hit by a satellite before. Odds are 1/3200 that someone will get hit. Today, Google wall, it has gone live sort of documentation. The partner says September 19th is a launch date and tech website GigaOM reported on a Google wallet pay station at a San Francisco coffee shop, but the Google Wallet website still doesn't say much at least that was the case when this video was taped, so if you see your Google Wallet pay station, it can right now only be used with the Sprint Nexus as android phone and users will also need a Citi MasterCard. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
