[wpaudio url=”″ text=”Click to play … ” dl=”0″]

You’ll be able to watch the biggest television event of the year without owning a TV. For the first time ever, you can watch the Super Bowl by streaming it online through the NBC or NFL websites. Verizon’s NFL mobile app will even put the game on your phone. In other news, Skype is giving away an early Christmas present to anyone stuck in an airport this holiday season. From December 21st to the 27th, Skype will provide free airport Wi-Fi access to place voice or video calls. Over 50 U.S. airports are participating in the program. And finally, starting in January of 2012, sponsored stories will appear in your news feed on Facebook.  Advertisements will find their way in between your friend’s updates and there’s nothing you can do about it. Facebook promises you’ll only see one ad a day.
