Garmin gives a little more information about the Nuvifone, Apple does not like curse words, and some users in the U.K. choose broadband over food.

GARMIN GIVES US A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE NUVIFONE, APPLE DOES NOT LIKE DIRTY WORDS, AND USERS IN THE UK CHOOSE BROADBAND OVER FOOD. ITS THURSDAY, AUGUST 6TH. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] MAC USERS, PATCH UP YOUR SOFTWARE TODAY. APPLE RELEASED AN OS X SECURITY UPDATE THAT FIXES 18 VULNERABILITIES, INCLUDING SEVERAL THAT HAD YOUR MAC VULNERABLE TO REMOTE CODE EXECUTION. SO DON'T RUN AROUND SAYING THAT MACS ARE IMPERVIOUS. JUST BE CAREFUL AND UPDATE THAT SYSTEM. [*] GARMIN SAID THAT THE OH-SO-ELUSIVE NUVIFONE WOULD BE HITTING SHELVES IN Q4 OF THIS YEAR. UH HUH. WE'VE HEARD THAT FROM THEM BEFORE. THEY ANNOUNCED THIS PHONE IN JANUARY OF 2008. THAT IS A YEAR AND A HALF AGO! THIS IS OF COURSE GARMIN'S TOUCHSCREEN SMARTPHONE THAT IS HEAVILY GEARED TOWARDS GPS. IT BETTER BE WORTH THE WAIT. [*] GOOGLE LAUNCHED A NEW BETA VERSION OF ITS CHROME BROWSER TODAY...FOR PC ONLY THE MAC VERSION IS STILL NOT WORTH TRYING YET. THE PC VERSION IS SAID TO BE 30 PERCENT FASTER AND HAVE A CUSTOMIZABLE HOMEPAGE, CUSTOMIZABLE THEMES, AND A DROP-DOWN OMNIBOX THAT SUGGESTS URL'S AS YOU TYPE IN A FEW KEYSTROKES. [*] APPLE IS GETTING A REPUTATION FOR BEING RATHER ECCENTRIC WITH ITS APP STORE. THEY REJECT CERTAIN APPS FOR UNEXPLAINED REASONS, WHILE LETTING OTHERS THROUGH. I PREDICT WE WILL SEE SOME KIND OF CLEAR POLICY ON THIS SOON. UNTIL THEN, WE WILL KEEP REPORTING ON INCONSISTENT APP REJECTIONS SUCH AS THIS: THE NINJAWORDS DICTIONARY. IT WAS REJECTED FOR DEFINITIONS FOR THE WORDS **** AND ****. APPLE EVEN SENT DEVELOPERS OF SCREENSHOTS OF THOSE WORDS DEFINITIONS. DEVELOPERS REMOVED THOSE WORDS BUT GOT REJECTED A SECOND TIME FOR THE WORD ****. IT IS BACK IN THE APPSTORE NOW BUT HAS A 17 AND OVER MATURE RATING. THIS GOT ME THINKING: YOU HAVE TO SEARCH FOR THOSE WORDS TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE IN THE DICTIONARY. WHY ARE APPLE EMPLOYEES SEARCHING FOR THE DEFINITION OF ****? [*] HERE IS SOMETHING YOU PROBABLY DON'T NEED. A STEERING WHEEL FOR YOUR IPHONE. THIS IS OF COURSE FOR RACING GAMES ON THE IPHONE AND IPOD TOUCH. IT IS A LITTLE RIDICULOUS BUT IF YOU CAN USE IT WITH A WIIMOTE, WHY NOT AN IPHONE. IT COMES FROM A COMPANY CALLED CTA. THERE ARE TWO VERSIONS: ONE WITH A SUCTION CUP MOUNT AND ONE WITHOUT. WE DON'T HAVE AN OFFICIAL PRICE ON IT YET. [*] ANYONE WORKING FOR ESPN CAN NO LONGER SHOW TEAM SPIRIT ON THEIR SOCIAL NETWORKS. THAT IS BECAUSE THE SPORTS NETWORK HAS RESTRICTED ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES FROM POSTING ABOUT ANYTHING SPORTS-RELATED. THIS SEEMS TO ME TO BE AN EXTREME CASE OF CONTROLLING THE MESSAGE. ESPN DOESN'T HAVE THE MARKET CORNERED ON SPORTS INFORMATION. NO ONE HARBORS INFORMATION ANYMORE. THIS IS THE INFORMATION AGE. WE GO TO ESPN BECAUSE WE ENJOY THEIR BRAND. WHY LIMIT YOUR BRAND LIKE THIS AND DISCOURAGE COMMUNITY? I CALL FOUL PLAY. [*] TUMBLR ANNOUNCED "TUMBLUPON" YESTERDAY. HM. SOUNDS LIKE THE SERVICE STUMBLEUPON AND DOES BASICALLY THE SAME THING. IF YOU LIKE CERTAIN POSTS ON TUMBLR, YOU CAN CLICK A HEART ICON. TUMBLR WILL USE THOSE HEARTS TO LEARN THE KIND OF THINGS YOU LIKE AND THEN RECOMMEND MORE THINGS TO YOU THAT FIT YOUR TASTES. SOUNDS REASONABLE ENOUGH BUT REALLY WAS THERE NO OTHER NAME FOR THIS SERVICE? [*] WHEN TIMES GET TOUGH, DO YOU CHOOSE FOOD OR BROADBAND? HOPEFULLY YOU NEVER HAVE TO MAKE THAT CHOICE BUT WHEN GIVEN THE HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION, BRITISH CONSUMERS CHOSE BROADBAND. A MARKET REPORT FROM A COMPANY CALLED OFCOM SHOWED THAT UK USERS WOULD RATHER EAT OUT LESS THEN SKIMP ON THEIR HOME BROADBAND. THEY DID FIND THAT CONSUMERS WERE BEING MORE SAVVY ABOUT FINDING BROADBAND THOUGH, LOOKING FOR DEALS AND BUNDLES. SO HOPEFULLY NO ONE HAS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN FOOD AND INTERNET. CAN YOU GUESS WHICH ONE I WOULD CHOOSE? NEITHER CAN I ACTUALLY. [*] BEFORE WE GO I HAVE ONE CORRECTION FROM YESTERDAY'S SHOW. FIRST OFF, I MISPRONOUNCED MARINE CORP. SORRY ABOUT THAT. ALSO, I MIXED MY JOHN ADAMS WHEN I TALKED ABOUT THE TWITTER ACCOUNTS. THE JOHN ADAMS THAT IS TWITTERING IS JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, THE SIXTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. HIS FATHER JOHN ADAMS, THE SECOND PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, IS NOT TWITTERING. YET. [*] THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY AND THAT WRAPS UP YOUR WEEK OF GETTING LOADED. BEFORE I GO I WANT TO WISH A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DESHANDRA, ERICK, DANIEL, RANDY, DAVID, AND ALEX. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. I'LL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNET TV AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
