Two Great Netbook Accessories Review
This is a video review of two great accessories that I recommend every netbook owner get: a USB-powered DVD burner, and a shorter power cable.
AT&T turns off its broadband TV service, we have photos of a Dell smart phone and Google
losses a bit of market share to Bing. Its Monday August 17th I’m Natali Del Conte and it’s time
to get loaded.
It has not than good week for Boxee users, an update to the Apple TV yesterday breaks
compatibility with there party add on like Boxee. It looks like Apple finally cut on to the media
center software and decided they do not want you to watch cool online videos on your TV so if
you want to keep your Boxee going don’t upgrade your Apple TV firmware. Netflix more or less
confirm that it will begin offering the streaming only service. Rumors about they started
circulating last week and the company CFO Barry McCartney discuss it on Wednesday, he said
were like to do that and the foreseeable future which stands promising to me. It would mean that
you can’t get a Netflix account without ever having to get a physical DVD in the mail you just
subscribe to stream the movies in the Netflix blog instantly application.
Microsoft is taking Tomtom to court for pattern infringement, the company releases the
statement on Wednesday same they have filed an action against the GPS Company for infringing
an intellectual property related to in car navigation technology and other computing
functionality. The statement implied that they had tried to settle out of court but in agreement
could not be reaching. There were no details about specifically which technology was infringe
but I’m guessing it has to do with Microsoft sink.
Alaska Airlines is joining the ranks of airlines that offer in flight Wi-Fi, this will be a satellite
base service from a company called Row 44. It will be free for the first 60 days while being
tasted in flight between settle and San Jose if the trial is successful it will be rolled out to the
airlines entire flight but it won’t be free. If you get on one of this flight do a speed test and send
us your results load it at cnet.com. On Tuesday Gmail was down for 2 ½ hours, users of the
Google Apps premiers of service are being compensated the whole $2 and 5 cents for there time.
According to the terms of service you should also get an extra three days of service but Google
will extend that to 15 days out of there own generosity. In more Gmail news the company has
added a new feature, this time you have the option of moving the inbox count before the word
Gmail in the title bar of your browser. So if you have a bunch of tabs open you can easily see
how many unread emails you have.
A few weeks back we mentioned of the, I am reach application that was available for a modest
$999 on iTunes, it was basically away for reach people to prove that they had money to burn and
socially network with like minded posters. As you can imagine few people were amused and it
was fold from iTunes apps stare pretty quickly. Now the app has weird its pretentious head in the
android market but the developers have apparently learn there lesson, they lower the price to
$200 what bargain. If your laptop installing you maybe able to set it to irritate the heck out of the
teeth until they either destroy it or bring it back to you. A program by front door software called
Retriever will flash a really annoying yellow message on your laptop screen every 30 seconds if
the machine has been reported stolen. It will also say out loud stolen laptop over and over and
over again this cannot be turn off unless you log in to the website and disconnect it yourself. The
laptop itself will know it’s stolen because you have reported it on the website and when the
machine is turn on it will look for near by Wi-Fi signals in order to push out the message the
program cost $30. Well it certainly is a deterrent for thief is it really going to get someone to
bring you your computer back what do you expect the laptop on your doorstep with the note it
says, sorry I try to use it but it bug the crap so I’m getting it back not likely. Those are your
headlines for today and that wraps up your week of getting loaded but before I go I want to wish
you happy birthday to Marty, Sebastian, James and JC. I will see all of you next week or later
today and tomorrow on Buzz out Loud. Thank you for watching I’m Natali Del Conte with
CNET TV and you just been loaded.
Sony launches the Play Station 3 slim, we have a playlists for rock band Beatles and why you
should avoid calling someone a skink on your blog. Its Wednesday August 19th I’m Natali Del
Conte and it’s time to get loaded.
And even if some people are disappointed by it’s lack of features a change way of survey shows
that 13% of respondents are somewhat or very likely to buy an iPod that’s higher than the 9% of
people who respondent to a similar survey prior to the launch of the original iPhone. And if I do
the Math correctly Apple will sale 100 billion iPods, not really but you know actually they might
as do that. Now AT&T is been getting butcher by users especially in San Francisco and New
York for its coverage but a new PC will test has now put the iPhones carrier at the top of there
13th city test on 3G performance for download speeds, upload speeds and reliability. AT&T is
touted there consent road of network upgrades and you can see some of the improvements for
some of those cities compared to there test last spring.
Now I told you guys I’ve seen better performance a couple of shows ago. Sure this serve as only
13 cities but does this and will this change of mind about AT&T and using future devices on
there network. Let us know and will show off the Applebyte or nations taught next week. And
the iTunes music store that money making machine deserves a congratulation for reaching its 10
billion song download in revolutionize digital music distribution so we had to give them some
props even if I’m buying all my music from Amazon music store. Alright let’s take out the tip
from our lists favorite scene in employ for making your experience a little more productive.
Brian Tong here with cnet.com and we’re all doing so many things with our computers with
multiple windows everywhere. Would it be nice if we could just keep as specific window like
our chat or Hulo on top no matter what, well that’s why I’m here and will show you a free
solution for both your Mac and PC. Now, for the Mac checkout this utility from infinite labs
called a flow. Once it install you will see new window management options available to you with
this cloud icon. I’m in iChat right now and I’m constantly getting IM while I’m working but I
hate switching between apps to get to them. Go to window in the menu bar and select keep a
float. Now no matter what app I’m working in it stays on top and for all your hot key kings press
control command and A to use this feature, you can also make the windows translucent and then
turn a pick when you using it so that’s a pretty cool feature. Form a PC pips, check out the desk
pins utility from Alias Fontenies once installed you can access by clicking its icon on the
notifications area of your task bar. You see a little contact and if I want to make sure I can see
this entire episodes for Jolo without anything getting then away I click on it to pin it and its stays
on top of any other app I’m using. And if you want to be hot key freak control and F11 brings up
the pin and control in F12 removing. So there is your how to tip for keeping the windows you
want on top of everything else use it wisely.
Thank you, skuckcareguy. Alright Apple’s once again making sure that you know who runs the
apps store in this week’s bad app. The big A recently removes over 5000 apps that they
considered overtly sexual. Some of the apps include photos of women in bikinis or lingerie how
can you say that, I don’t even knows what that is. But one of the Applebytes own after the week
wobble was taking down as well so what if you can make body part giggle is done any pictures
of women in the app so while they took down those apps hold some family apps like sport
illustrated swimsuit challenge and playboy are still alive and kicking on the apps store. Apple,
you may want to protect your image and as fell show it will said in the New York Times, put the
needs of kids and parents firs were you guys are idiot really it’s comforting to know that father
jobs and the rest of you will always be looking out for us in the apps store. Maybe in explicit
section four apps with another password and actually allowing adults and parent decide what
content is acceptable for there kids and themselves to access makes more sense but you know
that would just be too hard programs and guess what we’re still in out the bad apple.
Alright I’m done, I’m keeping my wobble and if there’s one thing you can take away for me is
my wobble. Alright that’s going to do for this week show, send me your emails to the applebyte
at cnet.com I’m Brian Tong, thanks for watching and come back next time for another bite of the
