Google Instant keeps it cleanFormer President Bill Clinton will take your questions in an upcoming YouTube interview, Comcast has a free service that lets you text to get details about what's on TV, and Google's new search feature is actually good at filtering out the bad stuff.
It's Thursday, September 9th. I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. Google announced a new type of search called Google Instant yesterday. Instant will predict your search and serve you results as you type. You will need a solid connection for the search to work well and it's only available on the desktop and not mobile, and surprisingly, the search is pretty good at filtering out the bad stuff. It just waits until you press enter. Yeah. I tested it out myself. And Microsoft just listed a price for a second Kinect bundle when it launches in November. For $400, you'll get the 200-gigabyte Xbox 360 Slim, the motion control Kinect device, and the Kinect Adventures video game. The first offering announced in July has the same bundle with a 4-gigabyte Xbox 360. Both bundles are due out when Kinect launches on November 4th. And if you seek information or answers on issues like health, poverty, education, and climate change, you can seek the sage wisdom of former president Bill Clinton. He's taking your questions in the latest YouTube interview. You can upload your video questions for the president to answer by going to YouTube.com/citizentube. Users can vote on which questions they like best and at the end of the month, Mr. Clinton will answer a selection of the top-voted questions in his interview. The last day to submit is September 13th. Comcast has a new free service for subscribers in Philly that actually sounds pretty neat. It's called Comcast4U and it lets you send a text message to a special number and get information about what's on TV. If you text "Now," you'll see a list of what's playing on TV at that moment. Texting "VOD" will show you highlights of on-demand content, and texting "Sports" will give you sports listings and scores. There's a bunch more commands you can text and the service will roll out nationally in the next few months. The Amazon Kindle is coming to Best Buy in the fall. The e-reader first came to Target a while back and soon you'll find Amazon's best-selling product in Best Buy stores. No specified date just yet. Those are all your headlines for today.
