Tuesday's CNET Update is ready for a new way to game:
The Android-based game console Ouya (pronounced ooo-yah) is scheduled to arrive at major retailers in June. Preorders have begun for this open-sourced, crowd-funded console. It will give consumers cheaper access to a wider selection of games to play on their television, and games built for the Ouya will be free to try. The console costs $100 and includes one controller. Additional controllers will cost $50.

Couple is for just two people to express their couple-ness with flirty photos, messages and drawings. It also syncs a calendar for scheduling dates, and users can share lists. Oh, and don't forget to send a thumbkiss on Valentine's Day.
