Loaded: New Magical Apple products

2:47 /

The Library of Congress says you can jailbreak your iPhone, Google releases secure apps for the U.S. government, and Apple releases new iMacs, Mac Pros, LED Cinema Displays and a surprise Magic Trackpad.

It's Tuesday, July 27th, I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. Apple updated their iMac line today. The systems start at 1200 dollars, and depending on the configuration, they will come with Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 processors and the ATI Radeon HD 5750. Apple also added a new 12-core Mac Pro and a brand new product called the Magic Trackpad. It's priced at 70 dollars and lets you use Multi-Touch on a desktop like you would on a MacBook. These are out on the Apple store today. Google has a new set of apps designed for the US government. This is the first of its kind to receive Federal Information Security Management Act certification from the government, which means the information stored and exchanged is secured. Google Apps for government store is Gmail and Calendar data in a separate system exclusively for the government. The service is now available to any Federal State or local government in the US. Iphone 4 is coming to 17 more countries on Friday. Starting July 30th, Apple will begin selling the smartphone to selected countries around the world including Australia, Canada, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Sweden and many more. South Korea was said to get the phone at the same time but was excluded due to regulatory issues from the South Korean government. They'll be available both in retail stores and online. The company also says that the white version of the iPhone 4 will be delayed until later on this year. And Microsoft wants to get gamers out of the house every once in awhile. The company has a deal with MovieTickets.com that will let you purchase tickets from the Xbox Console. The service would place movie ads on Xbox LIVE and players can click on and add, prompting them to use their phone to activate a Microsoft Tag for buying movie tickets. HP is ditching Windows 7 on its future smartphones to focus on its own webOS software. HP is still going to use Windows 7 for its upcoming slate tablet when it's available, but no word on what HP will call the new line of smartphones. The Library of Congress says you can go ahead and jailbreak your iPhone if you feel so inclined. They ruled yesterday that jailbreaking a smartphone is permissible under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's Fair Use provisions. Apple prohibits iPhone users from jailbreaking, but the Electronic Frontier Foundation stated that an iPhone user is the owner of the firmware and that jailbreaking is for noncommercial private use of the phone. So now jail breakers can continue what they have been doing. That's your news for now. I'm Mark Licea with CNET. Thanks for watching.
