Culture
It's Tuesday, July 5, 2011, I'm Wilson Tang on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. Hope you had a good 4th of July weekend. It appears Fox News didn't. the hacker Script Kiddies took over foxnews.com's political Twitter feed and sent several tweets related to President Barack Obama. The most disturbing messaged claimed that the President was dead. Several following tweets claimed that the president was shot twice and Joe Biden was sworn as president. Foxnews.com for its part says it's working with Twitter and the secret service to track down the hacker and it apologizes for any distress the tweets may have caused. By many accounts, google lunched of its Google+ social network is the search company best foray so far into social media, which means that Google is now a serious threat to Facebook and Twitter. So much so that Google has disabled its real time search feature, which pulled live tweet from twitter. The company says that real time search will come back in some form of another, but with more of a focused on Google+ then Twitter. In other Google+ news, iOS users hopefully won't have to wait too long. Google has submitted its Google+ app to Apple for inclusion in the app store. The app is suspected to be universal working on the iPhone, iPad Touch, and iPad devices. German tech site Golem has released screen shots and video of Sony's new S1 and S2 tablets. It appears that both units will run Google's android Honeycomb or perhaps Ice Cream Sandwich operating systems. The screen shots also revealed the anticipated dual the anticipated dual clam shell screen S2 tablet, which can close like a book. The tablets are expected to be released later this year. Owners of the iPhone 4 had limited insurance and extended warranty options, but in a surprise this weekend, AT&T says that the new iPhone owners can now sign up for $5 a month Asurion mobile insurance plans starting on July 17. The new insurance is only eligible for new owners of the iPhone of 30 days of activation, although users are SOL on the deal, however, the $5 a month does not include the deductible on thing you lost or Destruction of an iPhone. PDf documents can sometimes be a huge pain when launching inside of our web browser. It usually requires your browser to launch Adobe's reader plug in, which is not always the fastest load. Well now, Mozilla, the group behind the Firefox browser is working on a way to build a PDF reader entirely out of JavaScript and HTML5. It's called the pdf.js project, and programmers claimed they already achieved their first major milestone by rendering a pixel perfect view a particular PDF file. So far though, pdf.js only seemed to work on the latest Firefox browsers, but the group plans to extend support to any standard based browser. Sony says that users of the PlayStation network will finally have a fully operational PSN in Japan this week. It's been 2-1/2 months since the service was shut down, but now company promises full access to the PlayStation store and Qriocity will restored by July 6. That attack has cost Sony an estimated 170 million dollars, which includes the cost of hiring several computer security companies, rebuilding its network, identity fraud protection, and Sony's offer of free games to its users. Those are you headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNET.com and you just been loaded.
