A slew of Android tablets is on the way; push notification is coming to Twitter soon; and Craigslist self-censors its Adult Services section.
It's Tuesday, September 7th, I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. Craigslist shut down their US Adult Services Section over the weekend. The site has now replaced said section with the word "Censored." The company did not give any details on whether or not this is permanent or if new safeguards are being rolled out before reopening. I have a hunch that users will continue to post ads in different sections of the site in the meantime. New Android tablets are coming out soon like a lot of tablets. [unk] Google Spreadsheet shows the 20 Android tablets are on their way. Judging from the list, most of the devices are due out by the end of the year and pricing starts from $99 up to $550. If you're in the market for a tablet, you wanna pick it the spreadsheet. Sony has a new patch out for the PS3 that most people will not care about unless you're planning to Jailbreak. The update prevents the PS Jailbreak and PSGroove applications from working on the console. Earlier this month, the company won a court order to prevent distributing the PS Jailbreak dongle. This lets gamers play pirated games. The update is the latest in the battle between the PS Jailbreak dongle and Sony and push notification for Twitter is being tested on the iPhone and iPad. This news came out last week and when it launches officially, users will get instant real time updates, direct messages and at replies. The company says push isn't ready just yet, but it'll roll out soon. Those are the headlines for today. I'm Mark Licea for CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
