Loaded: Augmented reality eBay app

2:48 /

Google allows you to manage multiple accounts with one Gmail account, a computer named Watson is going to compete on Jeopardy, and a new augmented reality app lets you see what is for sale on eBay in your vicinity.

It's Wednesday December 15th. I'm Natali Morris and it's time to get loaded. A new augmented reality app lets you browse through eBay classified items wherever they are for sale. The app is called Junaio, and it's for iPhone and Android. So you move it around and you can see through your screen what is around you whenever you're walking. This sounds great, but it also sounds kind of like a huge privacy issue. I mean, do you want sellers just knocking at your door unannounced to look at your couch? And what if you're selling something you don't want your neighbor to know about? As a seller, you can choose not to share your location so your ads wouldn't appear in this app and I think most people will probably choose that option. You can now manage multiple Gmail accounts in just one account. This feature is called Email Delegation, and lets you sign into other Gmail accounts in just one account from the settings menu. Google purchased a company that allows you to make payments with your smartphone using Near Field Communication Technology. It's a Canadian company called Zetawire. Google Voice would also like to get to know you a little better. The call-forwarding and voicemail system launched something called Personalized Recognition. It will learn your vocabulary a little better and build a customized lexicon just for you. It won't do this automatically- you do have to grant permission. For now, it only works for Android devices running Version 2.2 or higher, and only in the US. Google Voice has also come to the iPad and iPod Touch as an app. This doesn't mean you can take calls, but you can read your voicemails and send text messages. You can also initiate calls that will be routed to the phone of your choice. And Verizon is killing off the Microsoft Kin for good. The network stopped selling the phones in late June after just 48 days on the market. Now, the Kin Studio which is the online portal for Kin users to keep track of their texts, emails and more is going dark as well. This makes the phones pretty much useless. So Verizon is offering to replace phones for anyone with a Kin 1 or Kin 2, with the 3G phone of their choice. And finally, a computer is going to be allowed to compete on the game show Jeopardy. An IBM machine named Watson will play 2 games against the show's most successful champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. The shows will air in mid-February. They are said to showcase how successful scientists can be in creating a computer that can mimic human intelligence. Although this hardly seems fair- how hard is it for that computer to just do a Google search? Those are your headlines for today. Remember, you can find links to anything we discussed here at CNET.com/loaded. I'll see you tomorrow. I'm Natali Morris for CNET.com. And you've just been loaded.
