Verizon Wireless unleashes TV service

Do you need to see who got booted from Survivor the instant it happens? Verizon Wireless is hoping to get customers to tune into live Survivor, Daily Show, and Letterman broadcasts through its just-launched TV service. V Cast Mobile TV is now available in 19 locales, mostly in the Midwest and West.

By paying US$15 to $25 a month (and purchasing the Samsung SCH-u620, the first to support this service), you get 24 hours of streaming video from eight channels: CBS Mobile, Comedy Central, ESPN, Fox Mobile, MTV, NBC 2Go, NBC News 2Go, and Nickelodeon.

But you won't necessarily be getting an exact replica of what's playing on your TV at home. According to USA Today, some shows like the CBS Evening News, Survivor, Letterman, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report will be on during their normal time slots, but other shows, like South Park and Chappelle's Show, will stray from their regularly scheduled time. MTV's programming will match what appears on TV.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
