Timewasters of the world rejoice! Not only can Facebook users and their many 'friends' continue to bore one another to tears with updates such as "I hate rain", they can now download movies through the social network and comment as they watch.

It'll be like having a sarcastic teenager sitting on the sofa next to you, eating loudly and making puerile remarks while you're trying to concentrate on the film. But one thing for sure, this is the future.
