3:00 /

Instagram adds real-time filter previews to its apps, Vimeo builds a new, legal music library that video creators can tap, and Facebook updates its interface again to add instant feed updates.

-It's Wednesday, September 21, 2011. I'm Wilson Tang on CNET.com, and it's time to get loaded. Now changes to Facebook again switching between a list of top stories and recent post is a thing of the past. Now, top stories and recent post are stuck together on users main wall with a little blue corner to mark with Facebook things is a top story for you, but for those updates of lesser importance, there's now a moving ticker on the right-hand side scrolling to recent comments and likes from your friends. Hover your mouse over and you can interact with all related comments. It's like Facebook inside of your Facebook. Apple and Microsoft might be anti Adobe Flash is like the honey badger, they just don't care. The software giant has announced a new version of Flash and Air, which should be able to render graphics 1000 times faster than the previous software. The company is focusing on games advanced online video and data driven apps. Flash 11 and Air 3 will be available early October, but the updates come during that time when Apple has banned the Flash plug in from its iPhone and iPads and Microsoft's new internet explorer 10 for windows 8 and the Metro touch interface won't support any plug ins at all. Regardless, Adobe pushes onward with support of the game makers like Zynga and EA. Images and details of the Motorola Atrix 2 have been released by the boy genius report. The tech blog says when it comes around thanksgiving. It won't support LTE 4G, but will have a dual core processor and an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording and Gingerbread 2.3.5 and just showed that it looks pretty similar to the first Atrix that AT&T released in March. Hipsters get excited, the smartphone app that makes everyone's photos look like they were taken by Polaroid camera in the 70s has added new features. Instagram free app update lets user see the effects of a filter before the snap the picture. It also saves high resolution photos. It has 4 new filter effects plus an instant tilt shift to that depth of field look. Vimeo the video sharing competitor to YouTube released a new music library today making it easy to add legal music to your videos. Yes, that is right. That is not legal to slip some Jack Johnson song on your wedding video and post it as your own creation, but now Vimeo has 45,000 tracks to pick from, about 11,000 are free and other that cost just a $99 a track for personal use. Songs with professional or commercial licenses cost $98 a track. In another music news, remember Kazaa, yes, yes, it's a legal service now, but this week it released its first mobile for iOS. The streaming music service is competing with companies Spotify and Rdio because their service is free to try week, but after it costs $10 a month for unlimited streaming and downloads. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
