eBay copies Pinterest in redesign

Culture
-In the future all sites will look like Pinterest and you can order toothpaste to be delivered within the hour from your limber laptop. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET update. -eBay says that people shop differently online now, so it has completely redesigned its website to be an exact copy of Pinterest. Well, there is one difference. Unlike Pinterest, you can actually make a purchase on eBay. So eBay now curates a list of feature products with large images. It's called the Feed and there's lots to scroll through so you can get sucked into a browsing black hole. You can also create a personalized feed with your interest. eBay's new look is rolling out over the next few months, but you could activate it now by going to ebay.com/feed. Search results, product page design and personal profiles also got a boost. eBay shoppers in San Francisco can also try out eBay now. It's an experimental same day delivery service. eBay launched the app for Apple devices and you just can get goods delivered within the hour from certain local retail stores such as Walgreens. Same day delivery is also some of them being tested at Wal-Mart and Amazon. -Mini seems to be the trendy tech term now because Samsung just announced the Galaxy S3 mini smartphone. And get this, it's called the mini but we'll have a 4 inch touch screen. So 4 inches is now a mini thing? Really, Samsung? If you wish you could watch live TV on your phone or Tablet, then you'll be interested in the new slingbox models that are hitting stores this Sunday. It pulls on [unk] on your cable box and let you access the stream from a computer, phone or Tablet. The slingbox models start at $180. There's no monthly fee but the mobile apps do cost $15. It's free though to view the stream from a PC or Mac. -If you're planning on getting a new Windows 8 laptop, you're going to get bent out of shape over how many choices there are for laptop tablet hybrids. Lenova just showed off some flexible models. There's the Yoga, the Twist and the *Links. The IdeaPad Yoga 13 has a 360 degree hinge that can do an impressive downward dog pose. And like many Yoga memberships, it doesn't come cheap, starting at $1,100. The point is that you can flip the keyboard behind it or use it to prop up and display the touch screen. The ThinkPad Edge Twist is a little cheaper, $850. It can bend back to this 10th position, but it also has a screen that swivels. And if you don't care for your laptop to do the limbo, there is the Idea Tab *Links which has a tablet that snaps into a keyboard dock. It's cheaper, it's lighter and it has more battery. The Tablet Half has 8 hours of battery life. But snap it into the keyboard boost it up to 16 hours. That's your tech news update for today. You can get links to all the stories I mentioned today at the blog cnet.com/update. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
