Apple launches labor inspections

Culture
It's Monday, February 13th, 2012. I'm Virgie Carey on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. Apple will look deeper into the working conditions at it's overseas factories. The iPhone maker announced that the Fair Labor Association, an organization that it's dedicated to end in (sweat?) shop conditions and factories around the world, will investigate Foxconn facilities in China. The first inspection began this morning. This announcement followed signed petitions that were handed to Apple Stores last week which called for Apple to improve working conditions and it's manufacturing plants. Google has temporarily disabled prepaid cards for Google wallet users after 2 hacks are published online, currently it's very easy to drain money from the stolen Google wallet phone account if the user doesn't have a password lock for the home screen. With the stolen phone received simply has to reset the Google wallet apps, set a new panel and then go on spend in free with a prepaid card account tied to the phone. Google says it is working on a fix. Another Google news, the web giant has added an improved Youtube app to Google TV. The app now has navigation and a feature called Discover which lets users browse you to accounts like categories, like humor cooking and news. The users give a video sums up or down and leave a comment with their remote as well as add video to the playlist or subscribe to a channel. (Despite of the?) app on IOS devices has gotten an extreme speed boost which supposedly improve the audio quality but you might not notice the difference unless you're on audio file. (Despite of it the?) new itunes app allows you to stream music at a bit rate of 320 kilobits per second which it seems to be paid customers get on a desktop version. Previously, the mobile version was limited to 150 kilobits per second. Samsung has announced it's newest 7-inch tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. It's loaded with the Android 4.0 operating system called Ice Cream Sandwich and has a 1 gigahertz dual core processor. The Galaxy Tab 2 will have those 3G and wifi and it will be the first Samsung device that have the all share play service which would use extreme multimedia content to the tablet from their PCs, Samsung smart phones or 3rd-party Cloud Drive. It will also support file transfers between devices. The late Steve Jobs was honored at the Grammy Awards at Sunday night for his contributions to the industry. He was given the Trustees Grammy Award for helping create products and technology that transform the way we consume music as well as video movies and books. Apple Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services, Eddie Cue accepted the award on his behalf and stay tuned at CNET TV this week as we bring you coverage from New York Toy Fair. Don't be surprised for the next time you walk into a toy store, there's an entire aisle dedicated to toys that interacted with iPad and smart phone apps. Those are your headlines for today.
