Spotify, the popular on-demand music-streaming service, may soon branch into streaming on-demand video, according to a report Monday.

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.

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.

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.

But for all you unfortunate souls who have to spend the week in relaxing, temperate California as opposed to the scorching middle of Texas under a deluge of smoky meat trimmings and promo CDs, SXSW will be live-streaming events and panels at its site . What new details about...
