Happy MovemberFacebook will make a mobile announcement this week, PayPal can pick up the check at local restaurants, and Cisco's Flip Cam grows a mustache for a good cause.
-It's Monday, November 1st, I'm Natalie Del Conte and it's time to get Loaded. Facebook is holding some precedent on Wednesday where they will discuss something to do with mobile. Could this mean the Facebook phone? We don't really know. It also could mean that they'll announce an iPad app or something more about Facebook Places. We'll know in a few days. PayPal is going hyper-local with a new version of its iPhone app that lets you find businesses near you that accept PayPal for payment. So, imagine going to buy your lunchtime burrito and paying with PayPal if you don't have cash. The app lets you search by category and location, and even find special offers. It launches initially in San Francisco only. Google is working on another unlocked Samsung phone much like the Nexus One. Some photos were posted on Gizmodo on Friday and it does look like a lovely thin phone. PC Magazine reports that it will not be called the Nexus Two, thank goodness, and it probably will come out in early 2011. The Flip cam has grown a mustache for Movember, a charity that asks men to grow mustaches this month in order to raise money for men's health charities. To get into the spirit of things, Cisco has a line of Flip cameras that sport various types of mustaches. When you buy one of these scary-looking devices, $10 will go towards the Movember Foundation. Logitech is launching a solar-powered keyboard. The K750 powers itself via sola panels, and it can operate for 3 months on a charge. It will cost $80 when it launches on November 15. And Mount Everest probably has better 3G reception than my office. The world's highest mountain was recently wired with 3G by a Nepalese wireless company called Ncell. The base station of the mountain is at 17,000 feet and the coverage reaches all the way to the peak. And finally, you don't have to look quite so dorky when you watch 3D because Gucci has a pair of 3D glasses on the market. They aren't active shutter, just regular europhile-looking shades. They cost $225. Those are your headlines for today. I'll see you tomorrow. I'm Natalie Del Conte for CNET.com, and you've just been Loaded.
