Chattanooga: Fastest Net in U.S.

Culture
IT'S TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH, I'M JEFF BAKALAR, AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. WHAT CITY IN THE U.S. HAS THE FASTEST INTERNET CONNECTION? IT CERTAINLY ISN'T NEW YORK CITY, BUT IF YOU WERE THINKING SOME TOWN IN SILICON VALLEY, YOU'D BE WRONG TOO. CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE, WILL THE BE THE FIRST COUNTY IN THE COUNTRY TO OFFER ONE GIGABIT PER SECOND. E-P-B, THE CITY-OWNED POWER UTILITY, WILL OFFER THE SPEED BY THE END OF THE YEAR FOR $350 DOLLARS, BUT CUSTOMERS NOW CAN SIGN UP FOR 30 MEGABITS PER SECOND FOR JUST $60 A MONTH. I'D NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THIS, BUT I MIGHT BE MOVING TO TENNESSEE. TWITTER HAS LOST ONE OF ITS MAJOR STARS. MUSICIAN AND SINGER JOHN MAYER HAS DECIDED TO LEAVE HIS 3.7 FOLLOWERS, SAYING "I JUST THINK TWITTER AS A FORM OF COMMUNICATION, I THINK IT'S OVER TO BE HONEST WITH YOU." IS THIS THE START OF A MASS TWITTER EXODUS OR WILL JUSTIN BEIBER NOW REIGN SUPREME? WRITE IN AT LOADED@CNET.COM. THE BOXEE BOX FINALLY GOES ON SALE FOR A SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE OF $229. THE BOXEE BOX IS A SET-TOP BOX IN THE VEIN OF APPLE-TV AND THE ROKU PLAYER. RATHER THAN BEING LOCKED SOLELY INTO THE I-TUNES WORLD, THE BOXEE BOX OFFERS CONTENT FROM MULTIPLE ONLINE SOURCES, AND INCLUDES AN SD-CARD SLOT AND USB PORTS FOR EXTERNAL STORAGE. CBS NEWS--CNET'S PARENT COMPANY--HAS A NEW IPAD APP THAT'S AVAILABLE NOW. IT'LL GIVE YOU ACCESS TO PHOTOS AND VIDEOS FROM CBSNEWS.COM IN ADDITION TO CONTENT FROM THE CBS EVENING NEWS WITH KATIE COURIC, THE EARLY SHOW, FACE THE NATION, AND MORE. A SEPARATE 60 MINUTES IN APP IS ALSO IN THE WORKS. AND FINALLY, TODAY MARKS THE RELEASE OF THE FINAL GAME IN THE HALO FRANCHISE, HALO REACH. THE GAME TAKES PLACE BEFORE THE EVENTS OF THE FIRST GAME ON THE ORIGINAL XBOX, BUT INTRODUCES NEW WEAPONS AND ENEMIES. WE'VE HAD OUR HANDS ON THE FINAL PRODUCT FOR A FEW DAYS NOW, AND HALO FANS ARE IN FOR A TREAT--REACH MIGHT BE THE BEST HALO TITLE YET. THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY I'M JEFF BAKALAR FOR CNET.COM, AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
