Loaded: Bing 'likes' Facebook2:20 /
Amazon may enter the tablet market with two mobile devices, T-Mobile offers free Wi-Fi calls, and Microsoft's Bing gets Facebook support in its search results.
It's Tuesday, May 17th. I'm Wilson Tang and it's time to get Loaded. Microsoft's Bing Search Engine is adding Facebook support to its search results page. When users search a given term, they will be able to see which links your own friends have liked and what articles other people may have liked on the website as well. In addition, Bing search results will tell you if you have friends living near a given search location, and Microsoft is adding a Like button to its Bing toolbar so you can like pages across the web. A post from the Boy Genius Report says that Amazon is preparing to enter the tablet market with two mobile devices. According to the rumor, the entry-level tablet is codenamed Coyote and is based on Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform, while the high-end model is codenamed Hollwyood and features Nvidia's T3 Kal-El quad core processor. You have to give it to the Winklevoss twins, they are persistent. Made famous by the Social Network movie, the Winklevosses sued and settled with Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, but then decided to change their mind. A Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied their decision and now the twins have announced they will petition the US Supreme Court. Just because T-Mobile is being bought by AT&T doesn't mean that the country's fourth place wireless carrier is about to give up. Yesterday, they announced that calls placed over Wi-Fi are free. Previously, Wi-Fi calls counted toward your minutes. Just a week after Google unveiled the Chromebook cloud-centric laptops, the company has updated Chrome OS to version 12 beta. Included in the software that is different from regular Chrome 12 browser are a file browser, support for GSM, a new Flash player, trackpad settings, power optimizations, and a new auto-update engine. The first Chromebooks are expected to ship in the next few weeks, but if you have a Cr-48 prototype, you can download the update yourself. Finally, the city of New York and its newly appointed chief digital officer Rachel Stern have released a road map for a digital city. The plan will develop open government APIs for city data, relaunch the city's website, and make a host of changes to the way the city government presents information online. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNET.com and you've just been Loaded.
