In need of online-shopping accompaniment that doesn't feature sleigh bells or mistletoe? Consider the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Django Unchained," which you can stream below. As with most of Tarantino's soundtracks, the album features bits of dialogue and some classic film music, including several themes by spaghetti-western kingpin Ennio Morricone. But in a first for the director, the set also contains newly commissioned tracks by Rick Ross, John Legend and Anthony Hamilton, as well as a strangely effective mash-up of James Brown's "The Payback" and "Untouchable" by 2Pac.

WASHINGTON - Netflix Inc. and other Internet companies may soon be able to pay for a faster road online for streaming movies and other content into customers' homes, raising concerns about who ultimately may end up with the bill. The nation's top telecommunications regulator, breaking with his agency's long-standing position, will propose new rules that would allow broadband network owners to sell a high-speed toll road for content providers, the Federal Communications Commission said Wednesday.

Spotify, the popular on-demand music-streaming service, may soon branch into streaming on-demand video, according to a report Monday. The London-based company would stream video much the same way as Netflix. On top of that, Spotify also plans to create its own original content, according to Business Insider , which cited two unnamed sources. Original video could help Spotify attract more subscribers the same way HBO managed to do when it began making its own shows, the report said.

Steelhead trout once packed the natural pools of Southern California's spawning rivers - that is, until the waterways were transformed into concrete drainage canals in the 1930s to protect the burgeoning flatlands from flooding. The last steelhead in the Los Angeles River was a 25-incher caught off a bridge in Glendale in 1940, two years after that stretch was paved. Today, the region's steelhead population hovers around 500 - 10% of what it was seven decades ago. "The good news is that steelhead are remarkably resilient if given half a chance," Jerry Schubel, president and chief executive of the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, said last week as crews were installing plumbing and temperature controls in an exhibit he said was designed to "reveal some of the secrets of this fish and inspire conservation.

A blunder during one of Michael Phelps' races Tuesday has confirmed that NBC's live stream of Olympic events is not actually live. A delay of at least a couple of seconds set up a spoiler in the outcome of Phelps' 200-meter butterfly race. With about 50 meters left in the race, the network sent out an app notification with the outcome. I was still watching Phelps swim, supposedly "live," after a notification on my iPad had already told me the race's result. Granted, the live stream was coming from NBC's Live Extra app and the notification from its NBC Olympics app, but you'd think the two would be in sync.

WASHINGTON - President Obama will take his fourth oath of office Monday at 8:55 a.m. Pacific/11:55 a.m Eastern at the head of a crowd that, though anticipated to be less than 2009's numbers, nonetheless has filled much of the National Mall. The pageantry of his swearing-in Monday is purely ceremonial, as the president already took the oath of office Sunday in a low-key event held in the White House. Obama, sworn in by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., was  joined by the first family for the official start to his second term in office.

With the addition of Amazon Fire TV this week, the market for video-streaming devices is getting crowded. And maybe that's why Roku made its latest device so small. The Saratoga, Calif., company recently began shipping the Streaming Stick, a video-streaming dongle that users can discreetly plug into their HDTVs to access online video services such as Netflix, HBO Go and Pandora. Measuring 3.1 inches by 1.1 inches and just 0.5 inch tall, the Streaming Stick takes up a lot less space than Roku's other devices, which resemble hockey pucks.

As expected for some time, Amazon on Wednesday unveiled its Fire TV, an Internet video-streaming set-top box that will compete against the likes of Apple TV, Roku and Google Chromecast. Though Amazon was expected to announce a small dongle similar to Chromecast and the new Roku Streaming Stick, the company instead revealed a black rectangular box about the same size as the Apple TV and Roku's various set-top devices. The new box will retail for $99 and is on sale now . Amazon Fire TV comes with a small control, just like Roku and Apple TV. But unlike its rivals, Amazon Fire TV's remote comes with a microphone that users can speak into to search for content with their voice.

Roku this month began shipping the Streaming Stick, a $49.99 dongle that lets users watch online video content on their TVs. Like Roku's other streaming devices, the Streaming Stick makes it possible for users to easily watch videos from Netflix, YouTube and other providers on their televisions. But the Streaming Stick is much smaller and more discreet than other Roku gadgets -- it plugs into the back of users' TVs. The device is essentially Roku's answer to Google's $35 Chromecast dongle.

You've got a decent set of speakers but almost all of your music is in your smartphone. You could attach a cable or buy yourself a wireless Bluetooth speaker for hundreds of dollars. Or you could consider getting the $49 Rocki, a tiny device that turns traditional speakers into "smart" ones that can be controlled with a smartphone. The gadget is essentially a low-cost alternative to getting a Sonos wireless sound system. Rocki attaches to the back of the speaker's auxiliary port.

Scarlett Johansson defended herself for working with Woody Allen, who has been accused of sexual abuse by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow, and for promoting SodaStream, an Israeli-owned company that operates a factory in a West Bank settlement, during a recent interview with the Guardian. Johansson, who has starred in three of Allen's films, was criticized along with other actors by Farrow in an open letter published in the New York Times last month. Johansson  told the Guardian , "I think it's irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on. That just feels irresponsible to me. " Regarding the controversy, which ignited a firestorm of debate and prompted Allen to respond with his own New York Times op-ed, Johansson said, "I'm unaware that there's been a backlash.

Federal biologists clad in waders and armed with long-handled nets this week moved hundreds of red-legged frog eggs from a San Fernando Valley stream to carefully selected wetlands 10 miles away in the first attempt to expand the threatened species' range in Southern California. Five hundred eggs transported from the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve to the Santa Monica Mountains are expected to hatch any day. When they do, they will reintroduce red-legged frog tadpoles to historic haunts that are free of predatory fish, snails and crayfish that could tear them apart.
