Loaded: The Royal Viral Wedding

2:09 /

The Unfollowed Me virus spreads over Twitter, Google Offers is launched in Portland, and the royal wedding has gone so incredibly viral that we figured we should talk about it, too.

-It's Friday, April 22nd. Happy Earth Day! I'm Natali Morris and it's time to get loaded. Beware: A new Twitter virus. The unfollow me virus claims it can show you who has unfollowed you. It does not do that. Instead, it links you to a survey that's some kind of click fraud and accesses your twitter account, spreading the virus to your friends. If you've already fallen for this, go to your Twitter settings and click connections. Now, remove this fake app from your permissions. The new version of Skype for Android lets you make calls over 3G or Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, it doesn't do video calls just yet. This is only for IM or Skype voice calls through the app, but video is most likely coming soon, which would be a great way to connect video calls between iPhone and Android soon. I hope. Google launched Google Offers in Portland. This is a Groupon competitor that will bring you local discounts over e-mail. Unlike Groupon, you don't have to wait for a certain number of people to commit to the deal before it becomes valid. This service will roll out slowly to other cities. One of the main criticisms of the Verizon iPhone is that it's not a world phone, meaning it doesn't work overseas. Verizon says that will change when the next version comes out. This was confirmed by a Verizon executive. We just don't know when that next version will come out. A public radio station is San Francisco is doing something interesting. They're letting customers opt out of commercials if they want to pay outright for the station. KQED in the San Francisco Bay Area is letting listeners skip those long pledge-drive commercials if they pay 45 dollars per year. That might sound steep, but now listeners can't complain. At least they have a choice. And finaly, if you're wondering what is viral these days, it's the royal wedding. A new report shows that the upcoming British Royal Wedding is getting mentioned about 9,000 times per day or every 10 seconds online. That is a lot. And if you're invitation was lost in the mail, the wedding will be streamed live on YouTube next Friday on youtube.com/theroyalchannel. That's your news of the day and of the week. I will see you on Monday. I'm Natali Morris with CNET and you've just been loaded.
