>> iPhone, iPhone, iPhone. It's WWDC day, so the end of iPhone speculation comes today, thank goodness. We stopped in to Wiimbledon and we've got some news about companies in trouble with the law. It's Monday, June 9, I'm Natali Del Conte and it's time to get Loaded. ^M00:00:15 [ Music ] ^M00:00:17 >> It's Stevenote Day, which means Steve Jobs will take the stage at WWDC and put an end to the rumor mill. We'll finally find out the details about the new iPhone. As of Loaded filming, the keynote is still six-hours away, but we'll be following along at News.com and we'll have video of the keynote, as well as First Looks of all the new products here on CNET TV, so stay tuned for that. And of course, I'll sum it all up on tomorrow's episode of Loaded. Intel is facing more anti-trust problems and this time here in the US. The New York Times is reporting that Intel is now under formal investigation by the Federal Trade Commission. AMD has been trying to get regulators to look into Intel for a long time and it's finally happening. The FTC is looking into allegations that Intel prices their chips with the intention of maintaining the monopoly on the processor market. Now keep in mind Intel is also under investigation for the same thing with the European Union and it was recently fined by South Korea for anti-trust violations. I'm inclined to think that where there's smoke, there's fire, but these cases will probably take months so we'll keep our eye on this smoke. T-Mobile is not gonna take rejection lying down. The company is suing Starbucks for making secret deals to offer free Wi-Fi with AT&T, while the coffee company had an exclusive arrangement with them. T-Mobile alleges that AT&T and Starbucks are not living up to the agreement the three companies had regarding how Starbucks would transfer from its T-Mobile partnership to an AT&T partnership. The company wants an unspecified amount of damages from Starbucks. Maybe if T-Mobile hadn't been charging an exorbitant $10 for Wi-Fi from customers who had just paid an exorbitant $4 for coffee, they could have kept this deal with just a little creative thinking. We're just a few weeks away from Wimbledon, but here in New York, this weekend was Wiimbledon, a Wii Tennis Tournament. We headed across the East River to Brooklyn on Saturday to check it out. ^M00:02:02 [ Music ] ^M00:02:11 >> Everybody's together, plays a little tennis, drinks a little beer and hangs out, that's a good time. They're giving away Brooklyn Cyclone tickets, Prince Tennis rackets, Prince tennis shoes, a Brunswick Wii bowling bags. For the grand prize, the Andy Ruddock is pretty grand prize. We also have the McEnroe was the [inaudible] word for the Most Dangerous Player. And we have the sampers says back here award for best costume. >> How did you do? >> I got owned. >> Says. >> I got owned. >> What's your score right now on your homey. >> Six-eighty. >> Six-eighty and you expected to win. >> I'm sorry, yeah. I had high hopes. >> I wish there were more people in costume. I think they need to give more perks for people for showing up in costume next year, so that, you know we get the whole crowd in costume. >> I can't resist the team. I'm all about the outfit. >> What's your work in it? >> That's why I got out of bed this morning -- outfits. >> What was your strategy going into your game then today? >> Distract the opponent. >> Yeah. >> Didn't work. His name's Mario. >> No. Yeah. >> Do you guys have pro status? ^M00:03:17 [ Music ] ^M00:03:18 >> Internet Week crops up tomorrow with the Webby's, which of course we will be attending, so stay tuned for that. Samsung announced a new all touch screen phone called the Samsung Omnia. As far as I can tell, it is a lot like the Instinct, which we just reviewed here on CNET, except the camera's better and it runs Windows Mobile. It looks like a very compelling phone, but do you think that Samsung could have picked a better date to announce it. The City of Los Angeles is suing Time Warner Cable for lying to subscribers and providing crappy customer service. Go LA. Time Warner cable is on my naughty list these days, so I'm all for this. The city is accusing the cable provider of fraudulent acts and business practices and asked the superior court to permanently bar the company from engaging -- and I quote, "Unlawful, unfair and fraudulent business acts and practices and deceptive advertising" -- end quote. The suit was filed as a civil law enforcement action and names the people of California as plaintiffs. They are seeking tens of millions of dollars in fines. Amen to that. Warner Bros has pulled its music from Last.fm the online radio station. Songs like certain Warner artists will still be streamed on Last.fm's artist base radio stations because the licensing deal is different for that, but Warner confirmed that its music would no longer be available on demand on the site. No one from either compant would say why. Grand Theft Auto fans will have to wait a little bit longer to download more episodes for the game. Take 2 announced that the planned downloadable episodes exclusive to the Xbox 360 version have been delayed until at least November. See, they don't need to be acquired by EA to have release dates delayed they can do that on their own. Those are all your headlines for today. Tonight is the film and video awards ceremony for the Webby's and tomorrow's the award's gala. We will be hitting the red carpet at both events, so you won't wanna miss footage from that tomorrow. I'll see you then. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV and you've just been Loaded. ^M00:05:04 [ Music ]
