Loaded: Computers that can cry

1:56 /

Phillips will scale back its TV business while Samsung may be selling off its hard drive business, and Google invests in research that will attempt to teach computers to feel regret.

-It's Monday, April 18th. I'm Natali Morris and it's time to get Loaded. Philips is pulling out of the TV business sort of. The company is moving its TV component to a 30/70 venture with the Hong Kong-based business TPV. Making TVs has become a loss leader for Philips, so the company wants to focus its effort on other CE products. The District of Columbia is going to legalize online poker in order to raise money for the government. The 2011 budget includes permission for online games which will be taxed in order for our very indebted government to make money, and if you ask me (which, of course, you did not), it is about time. Google is shutting down Google Video once and for all. They don't really do much with this since they purchased YouTube. Google stopped uploads to Google Video years ago, but they were still hosting videos. But if you have videos there now, better put them somewhere else because this service is shutting down altogether pronto. Google is also funding a project that would teach computers regret. This is an AI project from Tel Aviv University. It's more about teaching reinforcement learning rather than a real mea culpa, but it's a start. Imagine if your computer could apologize to you for crashing. That would be nice. The upcoming "Uncharted" sequel will have the ability to share your game play inside your Facebook and YouTube accounts. "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception" will give you a feed of your Facebook friends that are online in the PlayStation Network. You can see their game play clips and Facebook posts without ever leaving the game. Samsung may be selling off its hard drive business. The Wall Street Journal reports that Samsung is selling off this division for $1.5 billion in order to invest in other high-profit areas. Seagate is a potential buyer, but this is all rumor at this point. That's your news of the day. I will see you tomorrow with more. I'm Natali Morris for CNET and you've just been Loaded.
