Loaded: Searching for Kim Kardashian

2:00 /

Google's e-book store is coming soon, Santa can leave you a personalized message on Google Voice, and Kim Kardashian is one of the most popular search terms of 2010 on both Yahoo and Bing.

It's Wednesday, December 1st, I'm Natali Morris and it's time to get loaded. Google's new e-book store is coming soon. This is Google Edition, the online bookstore that was announced earlier this year. A Google spokespersons said that it will launch sometime this month. It will compete with the likes of Amazon's Kindle bookstore and Apple's iBook store. The key differences according to Google is that books will be available everywhere. There is a screen, basically the internet, reading devices, and mobile phones. Yahoo released its top search terms of 2010. They do this every year in early December, which I guess means that the searches in December don't really count. The Gulf oil spill was the top search followed by World Cup and then a lot of pop stars like Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Britney Spears who used to hold the number one spot but has since fallen to number 10. Bing's top search terms were a little different. Kim Kardashian was the number searched term followed by Sandra Bullock, Tiger Woods, Lady Gaga, and Barack Obama. The number 10 term was a little odd, it was free, just free. Free what? I don't know. This season, Santa can leave you a voicemail, a personalized voicemail. If you want this, fill out the custom content form on Google Voice. It's sort of like a madlib style form. So, it will say something like, "Hi, John. You're mom and dad told me that you've been a good boy this year and you want an iPad or whatever," which is very cute. And Playboy has a way for you to save your adult material in a safe place, the new Playboy hard drive. The 250 gig hard drive comes stock with a digital version of every issue of Playboy since the magazine launched in 1953. It cost $300 and obviously has the Playboy logo on it so it won't be a big secret what's on there. Those are your headlines for today. I will see you tomorrow. I'm Natali Morris for cnet.com and you've just been loaded.
