It's Wednesday, June 15th of 2011. I'm Wilson Tang on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. Google unveiled a refreshed version of its mobile-search app. The improved app features icons under the search box to find more local results like a restaurant or a business. A new "plus" icon next to query suggestions lets users dig into a particular searches. In addition, Google updated its desktop search to include voice and image search and finally a new feature called Instant Pages will automatically preload sites that Google think you'll click for ultra fast load times. Apple has agreed to terms of licensing for patents owned by Nokia that's sparked a long-running legal battle. The deal will settle all patent litigation between the companies. Apple were reportedly pay Nokia with 608 million dollars for previously missed payments and lessens fees in the future. Most of us thought it would never arrive but after 15 years of waiting, Duke Nukem Forever has launched in the US. The famed former vaporware is now available for the Xbox360, PS3, and PC but you might wanna hold on to your hard earned cash. The game has thus far received a load of mediocre reviews across the web with numerous complains about the games Gertrude's use of obscenity, sexually explicit themes, and profanity. Some are even suggesting that Duke Nukem should have remained vaporware. A new report from a Japanese Mac blog says that Apple's major update of Final Cut Pro X video editing software will be released next week. According to the site, the timing is set to coincide with announcements of several new third-party ThunderBolt-enabled peripherals. Apple's first demo of the software in April and announced that they would only be available via the Mac App Store for 299 dollars. The new ThunderBolt devices will allegedly allow Final Cut to edit super HD video at 4K and 5K resolutions. Skype has announced a new partnership with Comcast to bring HD video calling into a living room. Comcast customers will be able to use an HD camera to make video and audio calls or send instant messages via Skype on their televisions or even watching TV at the same time. The service will be delivered on Comcast's Xfinity service through an adaptor box and a specially designed remote. Finally, Steve Jobs has been acclaimed as the CEO that resurrected Apple from near death into a multi-hundred billion dollar company. Well, it turns out the CEO will now get the comic book treatment. The comic is written by C.W. Cooke and is drawn by Chris Schmidt and will cost 3.99 when released. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang on CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
