IT'S FRIDAY, MAY 21ST. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE. IT'S TIME TO GET
LOADED. [*]
WAL-MART LAUNCHED A GAMING SITE CALLED GAME-CENTER ON
FRIDAY. IT IS A PLACE TO FIND DISCOUNTS ON GAMES, AS WELL AS
WATCH PREVIEWS FOR UPCOMING GAMES. IF YOU GO THERE NOW,
YOU CAN GET A $50 GIFT CARD IF YOU PRE-ORDER THREE OR MORE
UPCOMING TITLES. YOU CAN FIND IT AT SEE-DOT-WALMART-DOT- COM-SLASH-GAMECENTER.
[*] THERE ARE RUMORS THAT YAHOO AND NOKIA ARE
ABOUT TO REACH A PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT. THE DEAL COULD MEAN
THAT YAHOO APPLICATIONS WILL BE INTEGRATED INTO ALL NOKIA
DEVICES. THE DEAL MAY BE ANNOUNCED MONDAY AND WE WILL OF
COURSE LET YOU KNOW WHEN WE KNOW MORE.
[*] I'M GOING TO GO OUT ON A LIMB AND SAY THAT
THE IPOD STEERING WHEEL MOUNT IS PROBABLY NOT THE SAFEST
WAY TO NAVIGATE THE RED ASPHALT. THE MOUNT PUTS YOUR
IPAD ON THE WHEEL AND, ACCORDING TO THE INVENTOR, KEEPS
YOUR MEDIA CLOSE BY WHICH IS SAFER THAN TEXTING. OKAY
BUT HOW ABOUT YOU DO NEITHER OF THOSE THINGS AND JUST KEEP
YOUR HANDS AT TEN AND TWO? FOR GOODNESS SAKES, WATCH THE
ROAD. [*]
SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2 LAUNCHES ON SUNDAY. WE HAVE A REVIEW
OF THE GAME IN OUR GAMING SHOW, PRE-GAME, SO YOU'LL WANT
TO CHECK THAT OUT. MEANWHILE, THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD
RECORDS PUBLISHED A LIST OF WORLD RECORDS AS THEY RELATE
TO MARIO. THE FRANCHISE HOLDS THE RECORD OF BEING THE
BEST-SELLING VIDEOGAME SERIES OF ALL TIME WITH OVER 201
MILLION COPIES SOLD IN THE LAST 28 YEARS. [*]
THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. THIS WEEKEND ON
60 MINUTES, MORLEY SAFER INTERVIEWS MARTY COOPER, THE
INVENTOR OF THE CELL PHONE. HISTORY BUFFS AND TECHNOPHILES
WON'T WANT TO MISS THAT SUNDAY ON YOUR LOCAL CBS
AFFILIATE. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH
CNET TV AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
