Loaded: How to embarrass someone with an iPad

2:42 /

Barnes & Noble announces the new Nook Color, Apple delays shipment of the white iPhone 4, and why you should engrave something embarrassing on the iPad you gift this holiday season.

IT'S WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27TH, I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] BARNES AND NOBLE ANNOUNCED THE COLOR SCREEN NOOK ON TUESDAY. IT IS MADE FOR READING BOOKS, PERIODICALS, AND CHILDREN'S LITERATURE, AS WE DISCUSSED ON MONDAY. IT HAS A 7-INCH COLOR TOUCHSCREEN AND 8 GIGS OF ON-BOARD MEMORY TO STORE ALL OF YOUR READING MATERIAL. THERE IS ALSO A SOCIAL COMPONENT, ALLOWING YOU TO SHARE BOOKS OVER TWITTER AND FACEBOOK. IT COSTS $249 FOR THE WI-FI MODEL AND STARTS SHIPPING NOVEMBER 19 [*] TMOBILE CUSTOMERS WILL SOON BE ABLE TO USE THEIR PHONES TO DELIVER THE INTERNET TO OTHER DEVICES. A NEW TETHERING OPTION WILL COST $15 PER MONTH. STARTING NOVEMBER 3, SMARTPHONE USERS WITH HSPA OR HSPA-PLUS WILL BE ABLE TO GET UP TO 5 GIGS OF DATA PER MONTH TO SEND TO THEIR LAPTOPS OR OTHER CONNECTED DEVICE. [*] YOU WON'T BE GETTING ANYONE A WHITE IPHONE 4 FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR. THAT IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN DELAYED UNTIL NEXT SPRING, ABOUT THE TIME WHEN WE'LL BE REPORTING ON RUMORS FOR IPHONE 5. WHAT YOU CAN GET THIS CHRISTMAS IS AN ENGRAVED IPAD THOUGH. APPLE IS OFFERING FREE LASER ENGRAVING WITH THE PURCHASE OF ANY IPAD. THIS ALSO MIGHT MAKE THE IPAD THEFT PROOF BECAUSE REALLY WHO IS GOING TO STEAL AN IPAD THAT SAYS "I LOVE YOU POOKIE"? [*] MYSPACE GOT A MAKEOVER TODAY. THE SITE IS GOING BACK TO ITS ROOTS AS A MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT PORTAL, HOPING TO GET AND KEEP MORE MEMBERS AGED 35 AND UNDER. IN ADDITION TO THE FOCUS ON MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT, THE SITE HAS CURBED MEMBER'S ABILITY TO CUSTOMIZE THEIR PAGES QUITE SO OBNOXIOUSLY. [*] YAHOO MAIL ALSO GOT AN UPDATE. THE COMPANY CLAIMS THE NEW WEB VERSION OF THE MAIL CLIENT IS SPEEDIER AND LESS SPAMMY, AND IT ALSO INTEGRATES TWITTER AND FACEBOOK FEEDS DIRECTLY INTO THE CLIENT. [*] LIMEWIRE IS IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW. THE FILE SHARING SITE WAS SLAPPED WITH A FEDERAL INJUNCTION ON TUESDAY THAT ORDERED THE SITE TO DISABLE CERTAIN PARTS OF ITS SERVICE. THIS IS THE RESULT OF A BATTLE WITH THE RECORDING INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA THAT OBVIOUSLY HAS A PROBLEM WITH PEOPLE SHARING MUSIC ON THE SITE. THIS INJUNCTION ORDERS LIMEWIRE TO SHUT DOWN SEARCHING, DOWNLOADING, UPLOADING, FILE TRADING AND DISTRIBUTION. SO BASICALLY EVERYTHING YOU USE IT FOR. THE LIMEWIRE MUSIC STORE WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE THOUGH. [*] AND FINALLY IF YOU WERE UPSET ABOUT THE DEATH OF THE CASETTE TAPE SONY WALKMAN, DRY YOUR TEARS. IT TURNS OUT SONY IS STOPPING PRODUCTION IN JAPAN ONLY. A SONY SPOKESPERSON TOLD PC MAGAZINE THAT THE VINTAGE DEVICE WILL STILL REMAIN IN PRODUCTION IN THE U.S. FOR THE TIME BEING. THEY SAID THAT THERE IS A CONSISTENT BUT SMALL DEMAND FOR IT SO IT WILL REMAIN ON SALE FOR $29.99. [*] THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE FOR CNET.COM, AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
