Watching brand-new movies at home

Culture
It's Friday, November 5th, I'm Natalie Del Conte and it's time to get loaded. Would you pay $30 to $50 to watch the new Harry Potter at home just a week or two after it debuted in the theaters? I would, but I do anything for Harry Potter movies, but I digress. Time Warner says that it's looking into this distribution model for new movies. They would be featured in its video on-demand service that you paid at extra money on your monthly bill. This isn't that much considering that if you take your family for to see that movie in the theater it's about that much, anyway, more if you buy popcorn. Sharp is set to debut 3D phones. These are android phones that would not necessitate the use of 3D glasses. They are the Galapagos 003SH and the Galapagos 005SH. They would be able to take advantage of game such as Mega Man and Ghost 'n Goblins, both Capcom 3D games that will work with android. These phones are expected to launch in Japan in December or January. Google Instant now works on iPhone and Android phones. This is the Google feature where Google predicts what you're searching for as you type it into the search bar. So, if you go to google.com from your phone's browser and tap turn on for Google Instant, it will start predicting your search terms as you entered them in saving you valuable milliseconds that you will never get back. The European Union wants to instate stronger privacy rules, giving users more control over their information on sites like Facebook and Google. This new proposed rules would overhaul 15-year-old rules. Without having read the entirety of these rules, I will go out on a limb and say that I'm for this if only because laws governing our online lives do need to be changed more frequently than every 15 years. Old legislation can't possibly be affected with raid, which the internet changes. If agreed upon, the new rules would go into effect next August. A new version of Skype is available for Mac users. Among the new features is the group calling service that Windows' users have had for some time now. This let you video chat in a group of up to 4 accounts at a time. There is no Facebook integration, however, which the Windows version does have. This feature lets you Skype call your Facebook friends. And this is good news for PlayStation owners. If you're cheap like me and don't want to join PlayStation network, you can still access Hulu Plus. Now it just cost the $10 per month and you can get it outside of the network. This starts next week. Also, you no longer need an invite to join Hulu Plus, it's open to all, but again, for the $10 per month. And finally, a new browser plug-in called socialmediasobrietytest.com will help prevent you from drunk posting on your Facebook page. It's a lot like Google, goggles and mails you have to pass a test in order for it to allow you to send incriminating things. Those are your headlines for today and that wraps up your week of getting loaded. I will see you on Monday. I'm Natalie Del Conte for cnet.com, and you've just been loaded.
