With the video iPod an extremely popular holiday gift item the Washington Post has reported that Yahoo and the CBS network have teamed up to offer up some of the CBS sitcoms for download. Yahoo and CBS are taking a different approach then other networks and are offering two of their hit sitcoms for free. According to the Post:
"For this week only, the shows -- "Two and a Half Men" and "How I Met Your Mother" -- will each have two previously aired full-length episodes available on Yahoo Inc.'s television site (http://tv.yahoo.com) and its video search."
Unfortunately, I did not get a video iPod for Christmas this year (but my two nieces who are both under the age of 12 each got an iPod Shuffle and that is the closest I have come to getting an iPod this year) so I cannot take full advantage of this free sitcom offering. However, there are plenty of people that can, like Rick Klau who recently blogged about how he found a video iPod under the tree this year and RockClimber106 who wasn't even expecting a video iPod but received one. It makes me happy to see the holiday spirit in others and I am happy that their holiday dreams came true. So my advice is to keep those downloads flowing and take full advantage of your new video player!
As for my iPod situation, I'll have to snag one sometime after the new year but by then Apple may come out with two or three new pods that not only play video and music but also do the laundry, clean your living spage, and care for your pets (wishful thinking). So maybe I should wait and see what the next iPod has to offer?
