iTunes may test 1080p movies

Culture
-It's Monday, July 11th, 2011. I'm Wilson Tang on CNET.com and it's time to get Loaded. Apple may begin testing 1080p video sales through its iTunes service as early as this fall. Currently, iTunes Selections max at its 720p resolutions and it doesn't look like Blu-ray support will arrive on Macs anytime soon. Rumors suggest that a handful of feature films will be submitted to iTunes to be released this fall with optional 1080p versions available for purchase only because of their high bit rates. HTC announced on its Facebook page yesterday that the company will be indeed rolling unlocked bootloaders to select HTC phones. The phones include the Sensation due in August, then the Sensation 4G on T-Mobile and the EVO 3D on Sprint. The company will first release a maintenance update to the phones but the phones won't actually be unlocked until early September when the company releases an unlocking tool. HTC says more phones will get the unlocked bootloader treatment. If you're a frequent Xbox Kinect user but find yourself just a little cramped by space, then Nyko has an accessory that might alleviate your pain. It's called the Nyko Zoom and it attaches to your Xbox Kinect sensor to reduce the amount of space needed to operate the Kinect by 40%. The Zoom for Kinect is due out on August 23rd for just $29. If you've been thinking about getting one of those Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cables, you might wanna do it now. The industry group behind HDMI has decided that an HDMI cable that doesn't have HDMI connectors on both ends isn't officially an HDMI cable. For now, retailers may still have these cables in stock if you ever wanna connect your laptop to your HD TV, but it may not be for long. An acceptable alternative is an HDMI-DisplayPort adaptor with a female HDMI port on the end. An appellate court in New Jersey has ruled that using a GPS device to track your whereabouts is not an invasion of privacy. The case centers around a divorcing couple. The wife apparently hired a private detective who recommended the wife buy a GPS tracking device and put it into the glove compartment of her husband's car. Two weeks later, she found her husband in the driveway with another woman who was not his wife. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNET.com and you've just been Loaded.
