2:45 /

Skype for Android expands two-way video calling to more phones, Apple's Find My Mac makes its debut on the developer testing version of iCloud.com, and Sony delays the launch of the PlayStation Vita handheld console in the U.S. and Europe.

It's Thursday, August 4th, 2011. I'm Wilson Tang in CNET. Com and it's time to get loaded. Sony plans to begin sales of the highly anticipated Playstation Vita Portable Game Console in the US and Europe next year. The Vita will miss the holiday seasons here in the States, the product will initially launch in Japan before the end of December. The company says that it will not need to lower the price of the Vita after Nintendo's 3DS priced dropped last week. Columbia University researchers have developed a $1 Plastic Chip that could diagnosed HIV and Syphilis in just 15 minutes, the M Chip as it's called is a credit card size piece of plastic that can test for multiple diseases with just a single prick of blood. According to a study in Nature Medicine Magazine, the chip detects 100% of cases of HIV with 4 to 6% false-positives. That is similar to standard lab test. Researchers hoped that the technology will help prevent the spread of AIDS in remote areas and help contain the epidemic in Africa. Gmail is now expanding the number of countries that you can call with Gmail's built in chat. Google will now offer cheaper rates to more than a 150 countries, for example will only cost 10 cents a minute to call mobile phones in the UK or just 2 cents a minute to call any number in China. Customers will be able to buy phone credits in US Dollars, Euros, British Pounds and Canadian Dollars. Two-way Skype calling has now arrived, a more than just to 4 Android Phones. An updated version of the Skype App appears on the Android market and now runs on a much wider range of phones. Users must run Android's Gingerbread Version of the Operating System in order to get the feature. And some quick Apple news, the company has quietly added the Find My Mac Feature to it's iCloud Beta Test, the feature works by using WiFi to locate your missing computer and like Apple's Find My iPhone Feature, users will be able to send a message, lock the computer and even wipe the hard drive. Also rumors are heating up that Apple will soon launch, iTunes Replay after Apple allowed users on Tuesday to download previously purchased TV Shows in iTunes and even let Apple TV users stream purchased videos from Apple's Servers. Finally a new Missouri Law bans private electronic communications between teachers and their students. The law is meant to curve sexual abuse but provisions in the law prevent teachers from communicating with their students in non-public ways. While the law does not strictly ban social networking, critic say it does ban private messages and chats. They acknowledge there's always a possibility of abuse but suggest it will make more difficult for a student or child to confide in a teacher, when the abuse takes place elsewhere. Those are our headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNET. Com and you've just been loaded.
