Facebook rolls out the Send button and Facebook Deals, Yahoo buys IntoNow, and the Sony Tablet will run Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" and have access to PlayStation content.

IT'S TUESDAY, APRIL 26. I'M NATALI MORRIS, AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] FACEBOOK HAS STARTED ROLLING OUT FACEBOOK DEALS, THE COMPANY'S GROUPON COMPETITOR. IT OFFERS LOCAL DEALS THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS THROUGH FACEBOOK. IT LAUNCHES TODAY IN AUSTIN, ATLANTA, DALLAS, SAN DIEGO, AND SAN FRANCISCO. [*] FACEBOOK ALSO LAUNCHED SOMETHING CALLED THE SEND BUTTON, WHICH IS LIKE THE LIKE BUTTON BUT NOT SO PUBLIC. YOU WILL SOON START TO SEE THESE LITTERED ALL OVER THE WEB. WHEN YOU PUSH IT, YOU CAN SHARE AN ARTICLE, PHOTO, OR PAGE WITH JUST A SELECT FEW FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK RATHER THAN YOUR ENTIRE FEED. SO NOW YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE QUITE SO EMBARRASSED TO LIKE THE THINGS YOU LIKE. [*] SONY ANNOUNCED A LINEUP OF ANDROID TABLETS TODAY. THEY RUN THE THE SONY TABLETS. THE S1 IS THE 9-INCH VERSION. THE S2 HAS TWO 5-INCH DISPLAYS THAT FOLD TOGETHER LIKE A BOOK. BOTH CAN LINK TO THE SONY READER STORE AND ANDROID PLAYSTATION CONTENT, WHICH IS VERY COOL. THEY WILL COME OUT THIS FALL. [*] YAHOO HAS PURCHASED INTO-NOW, A TV CHECK-IN SERVICE. IT IS SORT OF LIKE FOURSQUARE FOR TV WATCHING. YOU TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING AND SHARE IT WITH THEM THROUGH AN APP. THE APP SCANS THE AIR WAVES FROM THE TV AND KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING, WHICH IS PRETTY COOL. IT CAN SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FACEBOOK AND TWITTER FRIENDS. [*] AND LESS OF JUST AN E-READER BECAUSE IT CAN NOW RUN APPS. THIS IS CALLED NOOK APPS AND THERE ARE APPS FOR EMAIL, CALENDAR, CONTACTS, AND MORE. IT CAN ALSO RUN ADOBE FLASH AND ADOBE AIR. THE COLOR NOOK RUNS ANDROID BUT IT CAN'T RUN ALL ANDROID MARKETPLACE APPS. THERE ARE SPECIFIC APPS DESIGNED FOR THE NOOK. THERE ARE ABOUT 125 OF THEM RIGHT NOW. [*] DEVICE. WELL THAT DOESN'T WORK ANY MORE. T-MOBILE SHUT IT DOWN FACEBOOK COMPLAINED ABOUT IT. T-MOBILE SAID IT WOULD RE-DESIGN THE APP SO IT ISN'T SO CONFUSING TO USERS. [*] THAT'S YOUR NEWS OF THE DAY. I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW. I'M NATALI MORRIS WITH CNET AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
