Loaded: A Wii game with a dirty mouth

Culture
>> We have news about the iPhone 3.0, Amazon has some new Kindle headaches and a new Wii game has a filthy mouth. It's Wednesday, March 18, I'm Natali Del Conte and it's time to get Loaded. ^M00:00:12 [ Music ] ^M00:00:17 >> Molly Wood covered the iPhone 3.0 announcement yesterday and here it is. >> First, the big news: iPhone 3.0 will have copy and paste. Really, really fancy copy and paste, in fact. >> You double tap on to the text and it automatically selects that text or type something I didn't mean to. Well, all you have to do is shake to undo it. >> Actually, Apple showed off several features that were on the top of the wish list for users namely multimedia messaging -- finally and the ability to use a landscape keyboard in all the built-in iPhone apps. In addition, iPhone 3.0 will feature search across all the built-in apps including mail and calendar, which will make the phone a lot more business friendly. And there's an all new system-wide search called Spotlight, of course. Apple also finally rolled out Push Notification, so apps like instant messengers or even sports alerts from ESPN can be automatically pushed to your phone. >> And as you can see I just got a push notification from my girlfriend and she's asking a thing grab Bit Milk on the way home. >> The new developer kit also features hardware communication, P2P networking for sharing files or multiplayer gaming. So, what's missing? >> I think, we're really hoping for tethering and a lot of the rumor said that we were going to get that. That's not the case and in the Q and A afterwards they did say, well they're working on it, they did kind of hinted that. We really like to see flash. We really like to see voice dialing that's not through an app. >> Apple says the new software will be free for iPhone users when it comes out sometime this summer, but iPod Touch owners will have to pay 9.95. >> For more on the iPhone head on over to CNET.com. The Amazon Kindle has more legal headaches. Discovery Communications has filed a complaint against the company alleging that some security and copy protection features in the Kindle violate their patents. Discovery is the parent company of Discovery channel and Animal Planet. Apparently they have owned a patent for an electronic security and copyright protection system since November of 2007 which they filed for in 1999. A company spokesperson told CNET that the company's founder John Hendricks is a bit of an inventor. It doesn't seem as if they had actually had an e-reader on the way, they just filed a patent for the idea. At the moment they're not interested in suing Sony for the Reader or any other competing device. Facebook added a new privacy setting -- well, it's actually more of an anti-privacy setting that let's you set portions of your profile to be viewable by everyone. Don't worry your current privacy settings haven't changed. This is merely an option that you have to manage yourself if you're in to voyeurism or have no sense of privacy online like me. There are rumors on Wall Street that Google may be looking to purchase Expedia, the travel site. This rumor has actually been buzzing for about a year, but there was some new interest in it this week and shares of Expedia gain 2 points on the stock market as a result. The Roku player could be getting a lot more content. Roku's video player originally just offered Netflix and Amazon added its video OnDemand service earlier this month. Roku's vice-president said in an interview that the service could offer up to ten new channels by the end of the year such as YouTube and blip.tv and video services like Hulu and TV.com would seem like a natural fit. With Boxee removing content like Hulu this could be a door opener for Roku. For some good clean family fun you can now get Hasbro games on the Xbox. If you go to Xbox Live you can download classics such as Scrabble, Connect Four, Battleship and Yahtzee. You can play with your friends and family in the room or over the internet with anyone else in the world. The games are free. Boggle, Sorry and Sorry Sliders will lunch in the coming months. Sega's House of the Dead overkill made it to the very prestigious Guinness World Record Gamers Edition for something not so prestigious, the F-bum. The creators of the game wanted to remake the Wii's version of the popular first person shooter reminiscent of Grindhouse Cinema that helps paint a picture. The game contains the most swearing of any video game with the use of the F word 189 times. The game is rated M for mature, obviously. Google released a new Beta to their Chrome browser. This release features a 25 to 35% faster JavaScript engine. Other new features include auto-fill, full page zooming, auto scrolling and a cool way to drag tabs and get a side by side view. Google is also launching a Beta channel so you'll have immediate access to these updates to their Chrome browser. Cool stuff, but still no Mac version yet. And in green news there's a new Bluetooth-enabled speakerphone called the solCHAT that has a built-in solar panel. That's right. When installed in to your car the unit will charge its lithium-ion battery and give the driver the ability to talk hands-free. And just in case it's dark you can always recharge with the USB cable. The solCHAT is available for a cool $100. Those are all your headlines for today. Thank you for watching. I will see you tomorrow with more. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV and you've just been Loaded. ^M00:05:07 [ Music ]
