iCloud gets a lift

Culture
Yahoo has a fresh quote of CEO iCloud, (??) lift and Wall Street is buzzing about this but I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET update. It's a new day and a new leader for Yahoo. After four months on the job, Scott Thompson resigned as Yahoo's chief executive regarding the scandal about how he made false statements about his education. For several years, Thompson's bio stated that he graduated with both an accounting and computer science degree but he went to school for computer science but there's more to the story. The Wall Street Journal reports that last week during the investigation, Thompson told the board he has thyroid cancer and his health is part of the reason he wants to step down. Yahoo's new in term chief is Ross Levinsohn. He was in charge of Yahoo's advertising strategy. Levinsohn is Yahoo's 6th CEO in the past five years. The job seems to be a revolving door at Yahoo. Let's see if Levinsohn can change that. It's time for some Apple rumors and speculations. Best Buy has just discounted all MAC computers and chances are MAC store is making move for some new models. There's been talk of a new line of MacBook pros coming out. They would have the latest intel processors be seen like the MacBook air and could even have retina displays and sources at (iMore?) say the iPhone 5 is coming out in October but before you roll your eyes at this, this is actually the latest in several reports you've herd about an October release. So, maybe there's something actually to this October launch rumor and the Wall Street Journal reports that Apple is planning to update iCloud so you can comment on and share photos with other iCloud users. Right now, iCloud is just restoring your files and syncing them with your own devices not for sharing with others. This is a historical week for tech on Wall Street. Facebook is set to launch one of the largest initial (??) in history on Friday and when Facebook goes public, you can expect the company to focus on new ways to make money. We previously reported on a new feature Facebook was testing, charging you $2.00 if you want your status to be seen by more friends. We asked if you would pay for something like that and here's a few responses we got on tag. But absolutely not. I think that would turn Facebook into a paid service like eHarmony which is basically what Facebook is already. Absolutely not because first of all, I don't care about my Facebook status is and no one else does either. Second of all, that's two meals in the (Dollarman?) and McDonald's. Thanks for the comments and you can check out all the responses on talk and send us your thoughts any time. That's your techny's update for today. Stay updated on all the latest news at CNET.com. From our studios in New York. I'm Bridget Carey.
