Nokia ends its Comes with Music service in 27 countries, GoDaddy pushes .co domain names, and Apple CEO's takes another medical leave.

ITS TUESDAY, JANUARY 19. I'M NATALI MORRIS AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] SHARES OF APPLE FELL ON MONDAY WITH THE NEWS THAT CEO STEVE JOBS IS TAKING A MEDICAL LEAVE OF ABSENCE. HE IS NOT STEPPING DOWN AS CEO. JUST SCALING BACK TO WORK ON HIS HEALTH. TIM COOK WILL PICK UP THE SLACK IN THE DAY TO DAY OPERATIONS. WE WISH JOBS BETTER HEALTH. [*] NOKIA'S COMES WITH MUSIC SERVICE HAS MET ITS DEMISE IN 27 COUNTRIES. THE SERVICE ALLOWED NOKIA OWNERS TO DOWNLOAD FREE MUSIC WITH THE PURCHASE OF PARTICIPATING PHONES. YOU DIDN'T GET TO KEEP THAT MUSIC THOUGH. IT STAYED WITH A SPECIFIC PHONE WITH YEAR-LONG SUBSCRIPTIONS. THE SERVICE WILL CONTINUE IN A FEW COUNTRIES BUT THE U.S. IS NOT ONE OF THEM. THAT SERVICE HAS NEVER BEEN OFFERED HERE. [*] THE DOMAIN REGISTRATION COMPANY GODADDY LIKES TO MAKE FLASHY COMMERCIALS DURING THE SUPERBOWL. THE COMPANY IS PLANNING TO DO THE SAME THIS YEAR WITH A NEW CAMPAIGN TO PROMOTE DOT-CO DOMAINS. GODADDY WAS ONE OF THE FEW COMPANIES LICENSED TO SELL THESE WHEN THEY LAUNCHED BACK IN JULY. THE NEW CAMPAIGN WILL FEATURE REGULAR GODADDY GIRL DANICA PATRICK AS WELL AS CELEBRITY TRAINER JILLIAN MICHAELS. [*] "GROUPON MAY BE CLOSE TO SIGNING A DEAL WITH TENCNET, A CHINESE INTERNET COMPANY. GROUPON RECENTLY TURNED DOWN AN ACQUISITION DEAL WITH CHINA AND NOW THEY ARE LOOKING TO TENCENT TO HELP THEM GAIN TRACTION IN ASIAN MARKETS. SOURCES SAY THAT THIS WOULD BE SOME SORT OF CO-BRANDING OPPORTUNITY. [*] PEOPLE OF INDONESIA, NO MORE PORN ON YOUR BLACKBERRY. RESEARCH IN MOTION, MAKER OF THE BLACKBERRY, HAS SAID THAT IT WILL COMPLY WITH THE INDONESIAN GOVERNMENT'S REQUEST THAT THEY BLOCK ACCESS TO PORN SITES ON THEIR MOBILE DEVICES. THEY DIDN'T HAVE MUCH CHOICE. THE GOVERNMENT WAS THREATENING TO SHUT DOWN THE COMPANY'S BROWSER SERVICE IF THEY DIDN'T COMPLY BY THE 21ST OF THIS MONTH. [*] NETFLIX MADE A SMALL CHANGE TO THEIR STREAMING VIDEO SERVICE AND BOY DID THEY PISS OFF A LOT OF USERS. THE CHANGE WAS THAT THEY REMOVED THE OPTION TO ADD A MOVIE TO YOUR DVD QUEUE FROM A MOBILE DEVICE. AFTER ALL, IF YOU CAN STREAM A MOVIE FROM THE DEVICE, WHY DO YOU WANT TO ORDER PHYSICAL DISCS? WELL, MAYBE YOU LIKED A MOVIE SO MUCH YOU WANT TO WATCH IT WITH YOUR FAMILY LATER? CUSTOMERS ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THIS. READ THE COMMENTS ON THE BLOG IF YOU'RE IN THE MOOD FOR SOME VITRIOL.
