Loaded: 3D cell phone

2:49 /

Barnes & Noble plans to launch Nook Kids by year's end, Sharp stops making PCs while Sony finally stops making the cassette Walkman, and a very small, odd cell phone in India can do 3D without the glasses.

IT'S MONDAY, OCTOBER 25TH, I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] BARNES AND NOBLE IS GOING TO LAUNCH NOOK KODS, A COLLECTION OF E- BOOKS FOR THE LITTLE ONES. THIS WILL BE FOR CHILDREN AGES 3 TO 8 AND INCLUDE PICTURE BOOKS, NOVELS, AND CLASSIC CHILDREN STORIES. BY THE END OF THE YEAR, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO BROWSE OVER 12-THOUSAND TITLES AT NOOK-KIDS-DOT-COM. [*] WE HAVE OUR FIRST INKLING OF WHEN WINDOWS 8 WILL BE ALONG. MICROSOFT MENTIONED THE NEXT OPERATING SYSTEM IN A DUTCH BLOG POST AND SAID THAT IT IS ABOUT 2 YEARS AWAY. [*] HERE IS A 3D CELL PHONE. BUT DON'T GET TOO EXCITED, ITS KIND OF CHEESY. THE SPICE MOBILITY M67 3D PHONE WORKS WITHOUT GLASSES BUT ITS LESS THAN 2-AND-A-HALF INCHES SO YOU'RE NOT GOING TO REALLY ENJOY THE 3D ALL THAT MUCH. IT COSTS ABOUT $97 AND IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN INDIA. [*] AMAZON IS GOING TO ALLOW BOOK SHARING ON THE KINDLE. EACH BOOK CAN BE LENT OUT ONLY ONCE FOR A LOAN PERIOD OF 14 DAYS. IF YOU LEND OUT A BOOK, YOU CANNOT ACCESS IT WHEN YOUR FRIEND HAS IT AND UNFORTUNATELY THIS WON'T WORK FOR ALL BOOKS, PARTICULARLY NOT THE ONES THAT HAVE THIS FEATURE DISABLED BY THE PUBLISHER. LAME, THIS FEATURE WILL LAUNCH LATER THIS YEAR. [*] GOOGLE ADMITTED TO COLLECTING EMAIL ADDRESSES, PASSWORDS, AND URLS WHEN THE COMPANY COLLECTED STREET VIEW IMAGES. THIS ADMISSION CAME IN A BLOG POST LATE ON FRIDAY. WE KNEW THAT GOOGLE HAD COLLECTED WI- FI NETWORK DATA BUT THIS IS JUST ONE MORE LAYER OF INFORMATION GOOGLE JUST HELPED ITSELF TO. A GOOGLE REP SAID THAT THE COMPANY FEELS REALLY BAD ABOUT THIS. [*] IN NICER GOOGLE NEWS, THE COMPANY HAS ADDED VOICE SEARCH IN RUSSIAN, POLISH, CZECH, AND TURKISH FOR ANDROID USERS. THIS MEANS YOU CAN SPEAK SEARCH TERMS INTO YOUR MOBILE DEVICE IN THESE LANGUAGES. GOOGLE IS ALSO ADDING HISTORICAL WORLD WAR 2 IMAGERY AS A NEW LAYER IN THE MAPPING SOFTWARE. THIS ACTUALLY ISN'T NICER NEWS. IT WILL HELP ILLUSTRATE THE DESTRUCTION THAT WAS A RESULT OF THE WAR THROUGHOUT EUROPE. [*] USTREAM IS GOING TO START TO ALLOW PAY-PER-VIEW PROGRAMMING. THIS MEANS THAT YOU CAN CHARGE PEOPLE TO WATCH YOUR U-STREAM SHOWS. IT IS A COOL WAY FOR SMALLER BROADCASTERS TO MAKE MONEY FOR THEIR SHOWS USING PAYPAL. THIS WILL KICK OFF WITH A FEW SELECT U-STREAM BROADCASTERS IN NOVEMBER. [*] A FEW ELECTRONICS ARE GOING THE WAY OF THE DINOSAUR. FIRST OFF, SHARP HAS DECIDED TO STOP MAKING PCS. THE COMPANY HASN'T PUT OUT ANY NEW MODELS IN ABOUT A YEAR SO THIS ISN'T TOO BIG OF A SHOCKER. AND SONY IS GOING TO STOP MAKING THE WALKMAN. NOT THE WALKMAN PHONE OR MP3 PLAYER. THE ORIGINAL CASETTE TAPE WALKMAN THAT THEY STARTED MAKING IN 1979. I THINK THE REAL NEWS HERE IS THAT THEY HAVE STILL BEEN MAKING THEM ALL THIS TIME! [*] THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE FOR CNET.COM, AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
