Google is getting you free Wi-Fi for the holidays, the new RockMelt browser makes it so you never have to leave your social networks again, and your cell phone will soon be able to tell you if you have Chlamydia.

-It's Tuesday, November 9th. I'm Natali Del Conte and it's time to get loaded. Google is bringing Wi-Fi for the holidays again. They did this last year for the first time. What they did was bring Wi-Fi to airports and airlines around the country. This year, all domestic flights on AirTran, Delta, and Virgin will have free Wi-Fi from November 20th through January 2nd. Definitely it makes holiday travel less painful. A new browser called RockMelt makes it so you never have to leave your social network again. It keeps you signed in to your Facebook, Yelp, Twitter accounts, and more. It displays your updates in the browser and even incorporates RSS feeds, instant messaging, and share buttons. I think it could be a little much, but I'm willing to give it a try for a few days at least. I got an early invite from my friend, Tom Merritt. You can request an invite at rockmelt.com. Also, I think that's a really dumb name, makes me wanna eat a tuna melt, the spicy one. Hasbro has brought back the ViewFinder, but this time it's for the iPhone. It's a little weird. You put the ViewFinder up against your iPhone and you can watch three-dimensional content for gaming, travel, or entertainment just like the old school ViewFinder except this one cost $30 and it comes out in the spring. The Motorola Droid Pro is available for pre-order today. This is the Blackberry-like Android phone that has a full slab style QWERTY keyboard. It runs Android 2.2 and will cost $180 on Verizon when it comes out on November 18th. Everyone seems to be making 3D glasses these days for you to buy and keep not just use at the movie theater. Last week, we reported that Gucci is doing this, and now we know that Oakley, Marchon, and Calvin Klein are doing the same. These are not active shutter lenses. These are passive format, but there's nothing passive about the price. They cost up to $180. And finally, what if your cellphone could detect an STD that is sexually transmitted disease. Doctors in the UK are working on that. So, in theory, you would put a small amount of urine or saliva on to a chip that slides into your phone and the phone would act as a reader. Can you imagine what that interface looks like? Congratulations! You don't have gonorrhea today. Those are your headlines for today. I'll see you tomorrow. I'm Natali Del Conte for cnet.com and you've just been loaded.
