Loaded: Free phones and farewell

3:39 /

Hulu Plus comes to the Xbox Live, Best Buy gives away free phones, and Natali signs off as your host of Loaded.

IT'S FRIDAY, APRIL 29. I'M NATALI MORRIS, AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] REGARDING CONSUMER PRIVACY AND SMARTPHONES. BOTH COMPANIES HAVE IPHONE AND IPAD CONTAIN ENCRYPTED DATA LOGGING USERS' LOCATIONS. COMPANIES TO SPEAK. [*] HULU PLUS IS COMING TO XBOX LIVE. THIS MEANS YOU CAN STREAM HULU VIDEOS ON YOUR GAMING CONSOLE. YOU CAN ALREADY DO THIS ON THE PLAYSTATION AND ON THE ROKU BOX. MICROSOFT WILL GIVE USERS FREE ACCESS TO HULU PLUS UNTIL MAY 6. AFTER WHICH TIME, IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT, IT COSTS $7.99 PER MONTH BUT IF YOU PAY THAT, YOU CAN WATCH HULU PLUS ON ANY DEVICE, NOT JUST THE XBOX. [*] BEST BUY IS GIVING AWAY FREE PHONES TODAY AND TOMORROW. THEY ARE THE SAMSUNG FASCINATE, THE SAMSUNG CAPTIVATE, AND THE BLACKBERRY CURVE 3G. THIS IS A PROMOTION THAT ENDS ON SATURDAY APRIL 30. BEST BUY ALSO HAS THE WHITE IPHONE IN STOCK BUT IT IS NOT FREE. [*] TUNGLE. THE MAKERS OF BLACKBERRY DID NOT DISCLOSE THE TERMS OF THE DEAL. TUNGLE IS A SCHEDULING APP THAT SYNCHRONIZES ACROSS VARIOUS CALENDAR PLATFORMS. NO DOUBT THIS IS SOMETHING THEY WILL INTEGRATE INTO UPCOMING HANDSETS. [*] XBOX AND PLAYSTATION. THIS WILL LIKELY BE AN EPISODIC GAME A LOT LIKE BACK TO THE FUTURE, WHERE IT COMES OUT OVER A SPAN OF SERVERAL MONTHS. THE GAME WAS ORIGINALLY SUPPOSED TO COME OUT THIS MONTH BUT IT WAS PUSHED BACK FOR A WIDER RELEASE. IT WILL ALSO COME OUT ON PC. [*] PEPSI ANNOUNCED SOMETHING CALLED A SOCIAL VENDING SYSTEM. IT LETS USERS GIFT BEVERAGES TO THEIR FRIENDS. SO YOU WALK UP TO THE VENDING MACHINE, AND DECIDE YOU'D LIKE TO BUY YOUR BUDDY A NICE REFRESHING SOFT DRINK. YOU CAN ENTER THAT LUCKY FRIEND'S NAME AND PHONE NUMBER GENEROSITY. THEY WILL GET A CODE THAT THEY CAN USE WHEN THEY VISIT THE VENDING MACHINE NEXT. [*] THAT'S YOUR NEWS OF THE DAY AND FOR THE WEEK AND THAT DOES IT FOR ME AS YOUR HOST OF LOADED. TODAY IS MY LAST DAY AT CNET BUT THE SHOW MUST GO ON. YOU WILL BE IN GOOD HANDS FROM HERE ON OUT. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING THE SHOW AND FOR SUPPORTING US HERE AT CNET. I WILL HOPEFULLY SEE YOU ELSEWHERE ON THE INTER-WEBS. FOR THE LAST TIME, I'M NATALI MORRIS WITH CNET AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
