IT'S FRIDAY, JUNE 25TH. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE, AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED.
[*]
A NEW RUMOR
IS THAT SONY IS SET TO
ANNOUNCE HULU ON THE PLAYSTATION. WE THOUGHT THAT THIS WOULD
HAPPEN
FOR THE XBOX LAST WEEK AT E3 BUT IT DID NOT. THE PLAYSTATION
DEAL COULD BE ANNOUNCED AS
EARLY AS NEXT WEEK AND INCLUDE A PAID
SUBSCRIPTION MODEL FOR EXTRA CONTENT ON HULU.
[*]
HP HAS
PURCHASED MELODEO, A MUSIC STREAMING SERVICE. MELODEO
STREAMS YOUR OWN LIBRARY TO YOUR
MOBILE DEVICE. THIS COULD MEAN
THAT HP IS GETTING PRETTY BULLISH ABOUT A NEW PALM DEVICE
WITH
MULTIMEDIA.
[*]
NOKIA IS GOING TO MAKE A PRETTY MAJOR CHANGE TO THE OPERATING SYSTEM

ON ITS HIGHER-END SMARTPHONES. THE COMPANY WILL BEGIN USING A LINUX-
BASED SYSTEM CALLED
MEE-GO INSTEAD OF THE SYMBIAN SYSTEM IT HAS
LONG-SINCE FAVORED. THIS WILL START ON THE
N8 AND THEN BE ON ALL N-
SERIES PHONES FROM HERE ON OUT.
[*]
FOX MOBILE IS LAUNCHING
A SUBSCRIPTION-BASED TV SERVICE CALLED BITBOP.
IT LOOKS A LOT LIKE HULU. IT HAS FULL-LENGTH
TV SHOWS FROM FOX THAT
YOU CAN WATCH OVER WI-FI OR 3G. IT IS ONLY FOR BLACKBERRY PHONES
FOR
NOW AND IT COSTS $9.99 PER MONTH.
[*] PORN SITES MAY SOON GET THEIR OWN DOMAIN ENDING.
THIS MEANS THAT PORN SITES WOULD END IN DOT-XXX, INSTEAD OF DOT-COM. ONE COMPANY HAS BEEN PETITIONING
FOR THIS FROM THE INTERNET CORPORATION FOR ASSIGNED NAMES AND NUMBERS, OR ICANN, BUT
ICANN HAS NOT BEEN AMENABLE TO THIS IDEA UNTIL NOW. THE AGENCY SAID THAT IT HAS NOT TREATED
THIS REQUEST FAIRLY AND WILL NOW MOVE SWIFTLY TO CARRY OUT CHECKS ON THIS PROPOSITION.
[*]
AND FINALLY, ITS A LITTLE HOT OUT BUT WHEN THE WEATHER COOLS DOWN,
YOU MIGHT WANT
TO CONSIDER THIS HOODIE WITH BUILT-IN EARBUDS. THE
HOODIE-BUDDIE REPLACES A DRAWSTRING WITH
EARBUDS AND THE
HEADPHONE JACK IS IN THE POCKET FOR YOUR MUSIC PLAYER. THE SWEATER

COMES IN VARIOUS COLORS BUT I'M NOT SURE ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE
EARBUDS. OR HOW
YOU WOULD GO ABOUT WASHING THIS. IT COSTS $44.
[*]
THAT IS YOUR NEWS FOR NOW. YOU MAY
HAVE NOTICED THAT LOADED IS BACK TO A DAILY SCHEDULE INSTEAD OF TWICE A DAY. THAT HAS
TO DO WITH PRODUCTION RESOURCES HERE AT CNET TV NEW YORK. THIS SCHEDULE IS TEMPORARILY
ON HOLD, AT LEAST UNTIL I GET BACK FROM MATERNITY LEAVE. WE APPRECIATE YOUR FEEDBACK REGARDING
THE CHANGE. STAY TUNED FOR SCHEDULING UPDATES SOMETIME THIS FALL. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING.
I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNETTV AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN
LOADED.
