2:57 /

YouPorn users accuse the company of tracking their browsing history, Sprint may be serious about selling off Nextel, and Google takes the wraps off of its Chrome operating system and Web Store.

IT'S WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8TH, I'M NATALI MORRIS COMING TO YOU FROM SAN FRANCISCO THIS WEEK AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] CHROME APP STORE ON TUESDAY. THE APP STORE, OR MARKETPLACE, IS A PLACE OPERATING SYSTEM. IT IS LIKE A WEB SITE THAT IS MORE CUSTOMIZED FOR A WEB SITE. A FEW EXAMPLES ARE NPR AND AMAZON'S KINDLE FOR WEB, WHICH LETS YOU READ YOUR BOOKS IN YOUR WEB BROWSER. THIS WILL LAUNCH IN THE CHROME MARKETPLACE AND IN OTHER BROWSER ECOSYSTEMS TOO. THE CHROME MARKETPLACE IS OPEN TODAY IN THE U.S. ONLY. [*] AND WHERE DO YOU RUN THESE APPS? IN THE CHROME BROWSER OF COURSE. AND WHERE CAN YOU FIND A COMPUTER WITH THE CHROME OPERATING SYSTEM? WELL YOU CAN'T YET. THE CHROME-POWERED LAPTOPS ARE COMING SOON BUT NOT AS SOON AS WE THOUGHT. GOOGLE SAYS THAT THEY ARE DELAYED DUE TO A FEW BUGS YET TO BE WORKED OUT. [*] GOOGLE IS ALSO TEASING US WITH AN NEW ANDROID TABLET. THE COMPANY CALLED GINGERBREAD. THIS WAS SHOWN AT A CONFERENCE HERE IN SAN YET. [*] SITES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TRACK YOU. THE FEATURE WILL ALLOW USERS TO SUBSCRIBE TO "TRACKING PROTECTION LISTS" WHICH LIST WEB ADDRESSES THAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. THIS WILL HABITS. IT WILL BE A FEATURE OF THE UPCOMING INTERNET EXPLORER 9. [*] SPRINT MAY BE LOOKING TO SHUT DOWN NEXTEL IN ORDER TO SAVE SOME CASH. NEXTEL WOULD SAVE THEM ABOUT $11 BILLION. SPRINT PURCHASED NEXTEL IN 2005 FOR $35 BILLION. [*] BE CAREFUL CLICKING LINKS IN YOUR TWITTER FEED. A NEW VIRUS WAS SPREADING IN TWEETS WITH THE URL SHORTENER GOO-DOT-GL. THE VIRUS PASSWORDS. SO IF YOU CLICK SOMETHING THAT LOOKS FISHY IN YOUR TWITTER FEED, DO NOT ENTER YOUR PASSWORD. CLOSE THE WINDOW AND MOVE ON QUICKLY. [*] BEJEWELED 3 IS OUT. THE NEW GAME HAS NEW GRAPHICS, SOUND, AND 8 NEW MINI GAMES. IT ALSO HAS FOUR NEW GAME MODES. IT COSTS $20 [*] TRACKING USER BEHAVIOR. TWO MEN IN CALIFORNIA HAVE FILED A CLASS-ACTION SUIT AGAINST THE PORN SITE'S PARENT COMPANY FOR ALLEGEDLY TRACKING THEIR ONLINE BEHAVIOR VIA A JAVASCRIPT CODE. THESE MEN NOT ONLY ALLEGE THAT YOUPORN DID THIS BUT ALSO THAT THEY ARE STILL DOING THIS. SO IF YOU ARE ON THESE ADULT SITES AND YOU THINK YOU'RE ALONE, YOU'RE NOT. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED. [*] THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW. I'M NATALI MORRIS FOR CNET. COM AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
