Yahoo Pulse

Ahead of Apple's Monday event, the buzz is that Microsoft may buy AOL, HP printers get their own e-mail address, and Yahoo relaunches Profiles under a new name, Yahoo Pulse.

Ah, Stevenote day! I am usually lined up outside the Yerba Buena Center by now when Apple CEO Steve Jobs takes the stage but today I am comfortably observing from my New York City office.

I both love and hate the hysteria that goes on around an Apple event. Part of me wonders why we can't all hold our horses and just see what happens. But no! We must speculate, rumor hound, pontificate! This is the bloggosphere, darnit! We must work ourselves up over this, by God!

So be it. We will have a summary of today's Apple news in the afternoon edition of Loaded. And if you simply cannot wait, follow CNET's live blog here. For this morning's edition of Loaded, you'll have to settle for news about the following:

Microsoft may acquire AOL

Yahoo integrates Facebook and updates profiles into Yahoo Pulse

Bangladesh lifts the ban on Facebook

HP is rolling out printers with their own email addresses
