The buzz continues to stir about the mysterious Moto X phone.
I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update.
The next big smartphone that everyone's buzzing about is the Moto X. And although it has not officially been unveiled yet, Google's Chairman Eric Schmidt has been seen using it.
Schmidt was spotted using the upcoming Motorola phone at a media conference this week, so you know that was no accident.
They're just trying to
build up bus on this new model.
All Motorola has said so far about the phone is that it'll be customizable and based on reports that likely means you'll get to pick from several colors.
Google, which now runs the mobile division of Motorola is said to be pumping in $500 million into marketing this phone, which will be coming to the four major U.S. carriers and that's according to the Wall Street Journal and according to documents posted to the blog Phone Arena, the Moto X could go on sale in August.
Sprint has launched new unlimited talk, text and data plans.
Customers can now purchase unlimited voice and texting for $50 a month but data is separate.
If you want unlimited data, it cost another $30 per phone line.
So, if you have one smartphone, that starts at about $80 for everything unlimited and that's much cheaper than Sprint's previous unlimited plan.
More 4K televisions are hitting the market.
LG is rolling out new 55 and 65-inch Ultra HD televisions
to go along with its massive 84-inch model.
This Ultra High Def is a resolution that has so many pixels, it's the equivalent of 4 1080p screens in height and length.
And that's why it's sometimes called 4K.
But with new technology, don't expect it to come cheap.
The 55-inch LG model starts at $7,000 and the 65-inch model is a grand.
But even if you do splurge on a 4K TV, movies and shows in Ultra HD will be hard to come by.
If you haven't
signed into your Yahoo account for the past 12 months, well, then you're gonna lose your username.
For anyone who hasn't signed into the site or their Yahoo Mail by 11:59 PM Pacific Time on July 14th, Yahoo is freeing up those account names so other people can claim them.
Basically, if you didn't use it, you'll lose it.
Now, the big concern here is with security since so many people tie their logins and password recovery reminders into their e-mail addresses but Yahoo said it has a process to safeguard
against that so data doesn't end up in the wrong hands.
For example, Yahoo said before releasing an unused account, it would unsubscribe that e-mail from some services and newsletters.
