Loaded: Righty to lefty

1:54 /

Sony's Google TV remote is spotted, Windows 7 slates will be out in time for holiday shopping, and a special magnet can turn a righty into a lefty.

-It's Wednesday, October 6. I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. Google TV has a few announcements on the way. And if you caught ABC Nightline's special on Google TV, you would've seen a very unique-looking controller and gadgets snapped a few screen grabs and it has 2 directional pads on top and a QWERTY keyboard at the bottom. The controller looks more intense than the traditional one hand remote. We'll hear more on October 12. webOS is not dead yet. Senior vice president of HP said we'll see new smartphones running the webOS software early next year. That's how it was mentioned. And Netflix updated their iPhone and iPod Touch application to let customers use a video out adapter to push content on to a larger display. This only works on the latest gen iPhone 4 and iPod Touch. Third party vendors along with Apple sell these adapters. So if your gaming console or your TV does not already stream Netflix, this works. Steve Ballmer made an appearance in London yesterday to talk Slates. He said that by Christmas, Slates running Windows 7 will be available to buy. No specific makers were mentioned, and Ballmer also said that Microsoft will add touch optimizations for Windows 7 next year. And if you're right-handed like everyone else, you wish you were special and left-handed, there's technology for that. A special magnet use by researches at UC Berkeley applies a special kind of magnetic stimulation to the brain. This changes the brain's decision on which hand to prefer, thus, turning a righty into a lefty. This is also used to fight [unk] disease and helps stroke or injury victims restore movement. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Mark Licea for cnet.com. You've just been loaded.
