iPhone: Can you hear me now?

Culture
It's Tuesday, January 11, 2011. I'm Natali Morris and it's time to get loaded. Today is likely the day when I will have an answer to the question when will the iPhone be on Verizon. At long last, please no one ever ask me that question again. Verizon's press conference is today and they will presumably announce the iPhone on their network. We're heading there right after we record this show and we will have the news for you tomorrow, but CNET will have a live blog as well, which you can find at news.com. Another rumor that just won't die is about the playstation phone. Like the Verizon Iphone, this one does appear to be true. New video of the phone surface this week, it's an Android phone with a playstation skin and the video shows someone playing Resident Evil 2 and Rage racer. Meanwhile, the Detroit Auto Show is going on right now and Toyota has explained that the Prius lineup to include a mini-minivan, a plug-in version of the Prius and a new Hatchback concept. The mini-minivan is called the Prius V and it's obviously for families or anyone traveling with lots of stuff. The Prius Plug-in can handle plugging in as the name would suggest and the Prius C is a sporty-looking Hatchback that's a concept at this point. The Nintendo 3DS was a big hit at the Consumer Electronics Show, but don't let your little ones get too excited about it. Apparently, it's not suited for children under the age of 6. The president of Nintendo for America told Gearlog that they do not recommend it for young children because of the effect on vision. All this admission is certainly not good for sales. It's actually true of most 3D if you read the fine print. And if you're looking to be in a little more green this year, you'll like the Best Buy buy-back program. It allows customers to return a product and be paid for a fraction of the purchase price. The price you get back will be pro-rated based on how long you've had the item, kind of like a used car. This only works if you purchase the service with the product when you buy it from Best Buy of course. And finally, Hank Chien has reclaimed his title as the Donkey Kong Champion of the World. Chien scored 1,068,000 points to reclaim his title as the highest scoring person in the 1981 Nintendo Arcade game. He accomplished this speed and strength in less than 3 hours. That's your news of the day, but if you want more info and anything we've discussed, you can find the link at CNET.com/loaded. See you tomorrow. I'm Natalie Morris for CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
