Loaded: HBO on the go

2:13 /

Wal-Mart buys social media company Kosmix, Match.com will check for sex offenders, and HBO Go is expected to hit tablets and smartphones soon.

-It's Tuesday, April 19th. I'm Mark Licea. It's time to get loaded. HBO Go is hitting tablets and smartphones soon. HBO Go is the company's streaming video service and it's rumored to be on its way to the iPad, iPhone, and android devices. The service is free to all HBO subscribers. It's been available for desktop browsing since last year and recently the company pulled some of its content off Netflix. This new service could have something to do with that. Wal-Mart is buying the social media company, Kosmix. The founders of Kosmix sold their first company, Junglee, to amazon.com back in 1998. The two companies will join to form a new group called @WalmartLabs. It will focus on creating new technology and business around mobile and online shopping. Match.com will soon check to make sure that users on its site are not sex offenders. Last week, a Californian woman filed a lawsuit against Match.com. She claims she was attacked by a man she met on the dating site. Reportedly, the man had previously been convicted of sexually battery. Now, the site is making it their policy to prevent these attacks. They say the new system is still being tweaked and will roll out in the next 3 months. Gmail is adding an undo feature for mobile users. If you accidentally delete an e-mail, you can undo the action instead of taking multiple steps to fish it out of the trash. The new option will display a yellow bar at the bottom of the phone recapping what you just did with the ability to remove it. You can also undo other actions such as moving a conversation and archiving content. This is out for android and iOS today. And yesterday, we reported Seagate's rumor to buy Samsung's hard drive business. Today, it is confirmed. Seagate will acquire for 1.375 billion dollars half cash, half stock. Earlier this year, Western Digital acquired Hitachi's hard drive business for 4.3 billion dollars. The deal has cutdown the competition in the hard drive market to just three main players now; the Toshiba being the third. That's your news for today, I'm Mark Licea with cnet.com and you've just been loaded.
