  • Showtime is streaming this Saturday's mixed martial arts matchup between Frank Shamrock and Nick Diaz, with the help of BitGravity.

And in today's News Bits, the Fred YouTube Channel -- starring Fred Figglehorn, a fictional character invented by a fifteen-year-old from Nebraska -- has become the first YouTube channel to surpass 1 million subscribers.
