Netflix is planning to tattle on ISPs that throttle its streaming service and Sony announces PlayStation games for Android devices and a brand new PlayStation Portable.
-It's Thursday, January 27th. I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. We have a new Play Station portable. The PSP2 was then built in Tokyo and the official name is the Next Generation Portable. It will have a 5-inch OLED screen with 4 times more resolution than the previous model. It has touch pads on the front end, rear the device and dual micro analog joysticks. It has front and rear cameras with a flash-based memory card, 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and it boast PS3 photo graphics. We don't know pricing and it won't come out until the holidays. Sony also announced that they will be bringing Play Station games to Google's Android mobile operating system. This means play station games on your Android phone or your Android tablet. This is called the play station suite. We should see games there later this year, but Android users will need the newest version of the OS Gingerbread Android 2.3 in order to play. Amazon launched Kindle singles. These are short pieces of literature that will sell for anywhere between 99 cents and 499. Works could include essays, memoirs, or short works of fiction. You will see this in a new category in the kindle store. Facebook is letting you use its site with encryption, which is an added layer of security. Facebook will now use https or hypertext transfer protocol secure when you log in. However, if you turn on the extra encryption, everything on the site will be encrypted, not just your log in. This means hackers can't use tools like a browser plug in to snoop around your Facebook account. I suggest enabling. It can't hurt. You'll find the options in the account security settings. President Obama is taking to YouTube again. The president will be answering viewer's submitted questions on the social video site. If you watch it live at 2:30 p.m. Eastern today or if that time has already passed, you can catch up later on the White House on YouTube Channel. Additionally, Vice President Biden is taking questions in a Yahoo interview, and 4 other administration officials are holding an online discussion on Facebook. Netflix is prepared to tackle about ISPs that travel their service. The company published a letter to shareholders stating their intention to publish statistics about which ISPs are delivering the best speeds for network streaming. The New York Times maybe a little jealous of Wikileaks. The paper is considering creating its own submission system where anyone with information could link it to the paper. Al Jazeera already has something like this. There is this called the anonymous electronic drop box. I would wager they get a lot of crazies putting information there. Hopefully, there is a heavy bidding process. Speaking of Wikileaks, our parent company, CPS, has secured the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sixty minutes this weekend. You won't wanna miss that. That your news for today. If you want more stories about today, visit CNET.com/loaded. I'm Mark Licea for CNET.com and you just been loaded.
