Loaded: Loaded: Avoid the skanks

Sony launches the PlayStation 3 Slim, we have a playlist for The Beatles: Rock Band, and why you should avoid calling someone a skank on your blog.

SONY LAUNCHES THE PLAYSTATION3 SLIM, WE HAVE A PLAYLIST FOR ROCK BAND: BEATLES, AND WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID CALLING SOMEONE A SKANK ON YOUR BLOG. ITS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19TH. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] AS EXPECTED, SONY ANNOUNCED THE PLAYSTATION 3 SLIM ON TUESDAY. IT GOES ON SALE IN SEPTEMBER. BRIAN TONG TOOK A FIRST LOOK AT THE NEW CONSOLE. SEE FOR YOURSELF: ALSO, THE EXISTING PS3S GOT A PRICE DROP. THE 160-GIG MODEL IS $399 AND THE 80 GIG MODEL IS $299 TOO, ALTHOUGH WHY WOULD YOU SPEND $300 ON A REGULAR PS3 WITH LESS STORAGE WHEN YOU CAN BUY A SLIM WITH MORE STORAGE FOR THE SAME PRICE? [*] MTV GAMES AND HARMONIX ANNOUNCED 19 SONGS THAT WILL BE ON ROCK BAND BEATLES WHEN IT IS RELEASED ON SEPTEMBER 9TH. THERE WILL BE A 20TH SONG BUT THE GAME COMPANY IS KEEPING THAT A BIG MYSTERY. SOME OF THE CLASSICS INCLUDE "TICKET TO RIDE," "LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS," AND "A HARD DAYS NIGHT." I PLAYED ROCK BAND BEATLES AT A MICROSOFT PRESS EVENT A FEW MONTHS AGO AND IT WAS PRETTY FUN. I WILL NOW DO A RENDITION OF "HEY JUDE" FOR YOU...NO I WON'T. [*] GOOGLE HAS LINKED ITS ONLINE APPLICATION SUITE WITH ITS GROUPS SERVICES, MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR USERS TO SHARE DOCUMETNS, SITES, AND CALENDARS WITHIN PRE-DEFINED GROUPS. THIS FEATURE LAUNCHED THIS WEEK AND IT ALLOWS YOU TO SHARE PUBLICLY OR ON A PERSON-BY-PERSON BASIS. IF YOU SHARE WITH A GROUP AND THEN SOMEONE LEAVES THE GROUP, THEY WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE SHARED DOCUMENTS. [*] PALM DISCUSSED PLANS FOR ITS APPLICATION STORE ON THE PRE THIS WEEK. THE PROGRAM WILL BEGIN IN SEPTEMBER AND GIVE DEVELOPERS 70 PERCENT OF THE REVENUE THAT THEY MAKE FROM THEIR APPS. PALM WILL KEEP THE REMAINING 30 PERCENT. CUSTOMERS WILL LINK THEIR WEB-OS TO THEIR CREDIT CARDS FOR EASY PURCHASE. THE STORE'S OFFICIAL NAME IS THE APP CATALOG. [*] A RESEARCH FIRM RELEASED A REPORT YESTERDAY THAT SAID THAT ITUNES NOW ACCOUNTS FOR 25 PERCENT OF ALL MUSIC--BOTH DIGITALLY AND PHYSICALLY--IN THE UNITED STATES. WHILE CDS STILL REMAIN THE MOST POPULAR FORMAT WITH 65 PERCENT OF THE MARKET, MOST ANALYSTS BELIEVE THAT THE FORMAT WILL FADE AWAY. I CAN TELL YOU IT'S BEEN ABOUT TWO YEARS SINCE I'VE BOUGHT A CD AND I AM EMBARRASSED TO SAY THAT IT WAS JENNIFER LOPEZ'S SPANISH ALBUM. [*] FORD UNVEILED A THREE-YEAR PROJECT TO TEST VEHICLE-TO-GRID SOFTWARE FOR NEW PLUG-IN HYBRID CARS. THIS PROJECT IS IN COLLABORATION WITH ELECTRIC UTILITIES, THE ELECTRIC POWER RESEARCH INSTITUTE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY. THE SOFTWARE WILL LET USERS CONTROL WHEN THEIR VEHICLE CHARGES, SO THAT DRIVERS CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DIFFERENT ELECTRICITY RATES. IN ADDITION, THE SOFTWARE WILL COMMUNICATE DIRECTLY WITH THE ELECTRICAL GRID VIA SMART METERS AND WIRELESS NETWORKING. FORD HOPES TO INCORPORATE THIS SOFTWARE IN TIME FOR THE ALL-ELECTRIC FORD FOCUS SLATED FOR 2011. [*] YOU CANNOT CALL SOMEONE A PSYCHOTIC LYING WHORING SKANK AND HIDE BEHIND YOUR BLOGGING ANONYMITY. AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT A NEW YORK JUDGE HAS DECIDED IN THE CASE OF THE AUTHOR OF THE SKANKS IN NYC BLOG. LISKULA COHEN, A VOGUE MODEL, WAS THE SUBJECT OF SOME NASTY POSTS SO SHE ASK THE COURT TO ORDER GOOGLE TO GIVE UP THE IDENTITY OF THE PERSON WHO OWNS THIS BLOGGER ACCOUNT. GOOGLE HAS NOW HAD TO WARN THE BLOGGER TO GET A LAWYER BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO COMPLY. THE BLOGGER'S LAWYER SAID THIS SPEECH WAS JUST HYPERBOLE AND THAT A BLOG IS A WAY TO VENT. NOT ANYMORE. I FOR ONE WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME ACCOUNTABILITY FOR SOME OF THE NASTINESS IN THE BLOGOSPHERE. I'M ALL FOR FREE SPEECH BUT WHAT PURPOSE DOES IT SERVE TO CALL SOMEONE A PSYCHOTIC WHORING SKANK? [*] THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I'LL SEE YOU NEXT TOMORROW. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNET TV AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
