Loaded: A Moto phone fit for Batman

Culture
>> The British Government may be spying on you. We have lots of news from Google. And the new Motorola phone is just lovely, but it will most definitely break the bank. It's Wednesday, October 22, I'm Natali Del Conte, and it's time to get Loaded. ^M00:00:13 [ Music ] ^M00:00:16 >> We have a lot of Google news today, so here goes. First stop, Gmail now lets you set automated replies like those out of office emails that I find so annoying. They're calling it Canned Responses and you can find it in the Labs Tab on your settings page. Google has also announced that My Location, their GPS triangulation locator for Mobile has Wi-Fi. This is supposed to provide greater accuracy when you have Wi-Fi turned-on on your mobile device. Mozilla released something similar last week, they call it Geode, which is a Firefox plug-in that also uses Wi-Fi to map your location. This is great, but how many times do you have Wi-Fi turned on much less find a signal when you're walking down the street. And finally, Google is also trying to help you save energy. If you go to the Google homepage, you'll see a link under the search bar that will direct you to a Halloween themed site where you can calculate potential savings on your energy bill and get a list of energy saving tips. Google has a reputation for spreading awareness on energy problems and this should encourage more people to get on board. According to the site, I should be able to save roughly 12,250 pounds of CO2 and a pretty penny. EBay is issuing a global ban on all things ivory come January. The statement was posted in the company's blog yesterday after a conservation group found over 4,000 elephant ivory listings on the site. According to the International Fund for Animal Welfare, most ivory sales through eBay were in the US and one user purchased elephant tusks for over $21,000. EBay says it will however allow pre-nineteen hundred antiques that contains small amounts of ivory like a piano with ivory keys. If you've been waiting to buy an Eee PC then hold off a little longer unless of course you don't want a touchscreen. Asus CEO Jerry Shen leaked information on the new touchscreen-equipped Netbook that will be released sometime early next year. There's also a word that a model running Windows 7 will be out in the middle of next year. Asus didn't divulge all the details, but said they're considering the Tablet form factor model. Shen also mentioned that the Eee Top all-in-one will be available this month and confirmed the 10-inch model somewhere down the line. If you're wanting, yet another iPhone competitor, HP may be your answer. The company's own touchscreen handset is making its debut online and it's called the iPaq. You may remember that was the name of their PDA line a few years back. It has a slide out QWERTY keyboard in addition to the touchscreen, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and a 3.1-megapixel camera. Unfortunately, US users need not apply. It will only launch in EMEA and AP markets, which includes Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. Motorola is touting a new phone and it's very pretty. It's officially called the Aura and it's the first handset ever with a 16-million color circular display. If Batman needed a matching phone for his utility belt, this would be it. It's trekked-out with a Swiss made bearing, a 62-carat sapphire crystal lens, a 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, microUSB, microSD and quad-band GSM, all priced at a modest $1999.99. You can purchase the Aura from the Moto store and pre-order shipped December 4. We have some details on the BlackBerry Applications Store. It's supposed to launch in March and RIM will begin accepting applications from developers in December. If your BlackBerry is a corporate device, you won't be able to just download to your hearts content though. BlackBerry Enterprise server and professional software will let employers keep tabs on what's being downloaded on their employees phones. So you may not be able to play Monkey Ball if your boss doesn't want you to. Britain is about to get all Big Brother on us. The government is considering the implementation of a database that would monitor all phone and e-mail traffic. The move is part of a high-tech strategy to prevent terrorism and crime. The Home Secretary said police and security services need better ways to collect records of phone calls, e-mails and Internet traffic. But they claimed that the government will not actually store the content -- yeah right. Those are all your headlines for today, but I will see you tomorrow. Thank you for watching. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV and you've just been Loaded. ^M00:04:15 [ Music ]
