SYMANTEC HAS A DIRTY MIND. MYSPACE ACQUIRES ILIKE, AND TWITTER MAY NOT HAVE A PATENT ON THE WORD TWEET. ITS THURSDAY, AUGUST 20TH. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] SYMANTEC IS THINKING DIRTY. THE COMPANY RELEASED ITS "DIRTIEST WEB SITES OF THE SUMMER" LIST. THESE ARE EXACTLY WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE: 48 WEB SITES WITH ADULT CONTENT. THIS STUDY WAS NOT JUST DONE FOR PRURIENT INTERESTS THOUGH. SYMANTEC FOUND THAT SITES ON THE DIRTY LIST HAVE AN AVERAGE OF 18-THOUSAND THREATS PER SITE. MORAL OF THE STORY: KEEP IT CLEAN. [*] MYSPACE CONFIRMED ITS ACQUISITION OF ILIKE., A MUSIC RECOMMENDATION AND DISCOVERY SITE. WE ORIGINALLY THOUGHT THAT ILIKE WOULD BE BUILT INTO MYSPACE MUSIC BUT THE COMPANY'S CEO OWEN VAN NATTA SAID THAT THIS ACQUISITION IS FOR MYSPACE INC INSTEAD. MYSPACE WILL USE ILIKE'S RECOMMENDATION TECHNOLOGY FOR MORE THAN JUST MUSIC, INCLUDING GAMING AND FILM. IT IS UNCLEAR HOW THIS WILL EFFECT ILIKE'S RELATIONSHIP WITH FACEBOOK SINCE THE SERVICE IS SO HEAVILY EMBEDDED THERE. MEANWHILE, MYSPACE HAS ALSO DISABLED AUTO-PLAY ON USER PROFILES MEANING THAT YOU WON'T HEAR SOMEONE'S FAVORITE SONG START PLAYING WHEN YOU LAND ON THEIR PAGE. THEY DID THIS TO TRIM COSTS. MYSPACE WAS PAYING ABOUT $10 MILLION PER MONTH FOR THAT MUSIC. YOU CAN STILL RE-ENABLE THIS FEATURE BUT YOU HAVE TO GO OUT OF YOUR WAY TO DO IT. BUT FOR PETE'S SAKE, PLEASE DON'T. IF I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR FAVORITE SONG IS, I WILL PROBABLY JUST ASK YOU. [*] OUR PARENT COMPANY CBS IS GOING TO START VIDEO ADVERTISEMENTS IN MAGAZINES. THIS IS THROUGH OUR MARKETING DEPARTMENT OF COURSE, WHICH WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH. THEY WILL USE A VIDEO-CHIP AD EMBEDDED IN AN ISSUE OF ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY. THE AD WILL HAVE TO DO WITH PEPSI AND THE NETWORK'S FALL LINEUP OF TV SHOWS AND WILL ONLY APPEAR IN THE NEW YORK AND LOS ANGELES MARKETS. EACH CHIP WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY ABOUT 40 MINUTES OF VIDEO FROM A CHIP MADE BY A COMPANY CALLED AMERICHIP. THIS GIVES ALL NEW MEANING TO THE WORD "EMBEDDED VIDEO." I IMAGINE IT IS COSTLY. WE WILL TRY TO GET OUR HANDS ON A COPY AND GIVE YOU A LOOK WHEN IT COMES OUT IN SEPTEMBER. [*] MICROSOFT IS STILL DUKING IT OUT IN COURT OVER MICROSOFT WORD. LAST WEEK THE COMPANY WAS ORDERED TO STOP SELLING THE PROGRAM BECAUSE IT WAS BEING SUED FOR PATENT INFRINGEMENT BY A COMPANY CALLED I-4-I. THE COMPANY ALSO HAD TO PAY $290 MILLION. MICROSOFT HAS ASKED THE COURT FOR PERMISSION TO KEEP SELLING THE PROGRAM WHILE IT FIGHTS THIS FIGHT. THE PATENT APPLIES TO WORD 2003 AND WORD 2007. [*] WE DON'T ALWAYS COVER NEW PRINTERS HERE ON LOADED BUT I THOUGHT THIS ONE WAS REALLY CUTE. IT IS THE NEW CANON SELPHY ES40. IT HAS A VOICE GUIDANCE SYSTEM SO YOU CAN ASK IT TO PLEASE PRINT OUT YOUR PRETTY PICTURES. IT ALSO HAS A 3.5-INCH LCD SCREEN. PLUS IT LOOKS LIKE A CHILDREN'S TOY. IT WILL COST $150 BUT WE DON'T HAVE A RELEASE DATE YET. [*] TIME WARNER AND YOUTUBE SIGNED AN AGREEMENT TO BRING CLIPS TIME WARNER SHOWS TO THE VIDEO SHARING SITE. THIS INCLUDES CNN, THE CARTOON NETWORK, AND ALSO "GOSSIP GIRL." OMG. IN MARCH, YOUTUBE SIGNED A SIMILAR AGREEMENT WITH WALT DISNEY'S ABC UNIT. [*] EARLIER THIS WEEK WE REPORTED THAT GMAIL IS NOW THE NUMBER 3 EMAIL CLIENT IN THE U.S. THEY WANT THE NUMBER 1 SPOT. THEY MADE STRIDES TO HELP USERS STOP USING OLD EMAIL ACCOUNTS THIS WEEK BY ALLOWING CONTACT AND MAIL IMPORTING FROM OTHER EMAIL CLIENTS. A FEW MONTHS AGO, GOOGLE ALLOWED NEW GMAIL USERS TO FORWARD ALL EMAIL AND CONTACT LISTS TO THEIR NEW GMAIL ACCOUNTS BUT THIS WASN'T AVAILABLE FOR EXISTING GMAILERS. NOW IT IS. AND SO I WENT THROUGH WITH IT. AND I MAY JUST GET RID OF MY YAHOO MAIL NOW AFTER MANY MANY YEARS. WE'LL SEE HOW IT GOES. [*] TWITTER IS DEVELOPING ITS HIGHER POWERS AS A MEDIUM TO GOD. AN ISRAELI STUDENT LAUNCHED A TWITTER PAGE FOR USERS TO SEND IN THEIR PRAYERS. IF YOU TWEET HIM A VERY SHORT SUPPLICATION, HE WILL PLACE IT IN THE CREVICES OF JERUSALEM'S WESTERN WALL, A HOLY SIGHT. THE STUDENT'S NAME IS ALON NIR AND YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW HIM SO THAT YOU CAN SEND YOUR PRAYERS OVER DIRECT MESSAGE. SO FAR HE HAS DELIVERED OVER ONE THOUSAND TWITTER PRAYERS. [*] SPEAKING OF TWITTER, THE COMPANY MAY NOT HAVE THE RIGHTS TO THE WORD TWEET AFTERALL. BLOGGER SAM JOHNSTON FOUND DOCUMENTS FROM THE U.S. PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE THAT SHOW THAT THE APPLICATION FOR THE TRADEMARK ON THE WORD TWEET WAS PRELIMINARILY DENIED. TWITTER FILED FOR THIS PATENT IN APRIL BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THREE OTHER COMPANIES HAD DONE THE SAME. OF COURSE THIS IS NOT THE END OF THE BATTLE OF THE TWEET. TWITTER COULD CONTINUE TO FORGE AHEAD WITH THE LEGAL PROCESS BUT THE COMPANY DID NOT COMMENT ON THIS STORY. OR TWEET ABOUT IT. [*] THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY AND THAT WRAPS UP YOUR WEEK OF GETTING LOADED. BEFORE I GO I WANT TO WISH A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MICHAEL, MELCARDO, MATTHEW, AND A HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY TO DEREK. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNET TV AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
