MICROSOFT LAUNCHES A PRODUCT CALLED HOME TO HELP YOU SAVE ENERGY, INTERNET EXPLORER HAS A SECURITY FLAW THAT YOU NEED TO LOOK OUT FOR, AND U2 LAUNCHES A MOBILE ALBUM FOR BLACKBERRY. ITS TUESDAY, JULY 7TH. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] MICROSOFT OPENED UP ITS HOHM--THAT'S H-O-H-M. IT IS A WEB APPLICATION FOR U.S. USERS. HOHM, STILL IN BETA, IS A ONLINE TOOL THAT TRACKS ENERGY USE AT, YOU GUESSED IT, YOUR HOME. H-O-M-E. HOHM HAS A RECOMMENDATION SYSTEM WHICH WILL GIVE YOU TIPS ON HOW TO REDUCE YOUR ENERGY BILLS. ACCORDING TO CNET'S OWN MARTIN LAMONICA, HOWEVER, THE QUESTIONAIRE IS FAIRLY EXTENSIVE. AND BE SURE TO CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR UTILITY IS SIGNED UP TO SEND YOUR ELECTRIC DATA TO MICROSOFT. OTHERWISE, YOU'LL HAVE TO ENTER YOUR OWN ENERGY USAGE MANUALLY INTO THE SYSTEM. [*] IN OTHER MICROSOFT NEWS, BE CAREFUL IF YOU ARE USING INTERNET EXPLORER. MICROSOFT WARNED USERS ON MONDAY ABOUT A SERIOUS SECURITY FLAW IN THE BROWSER AND UNFORTUNATELY THERE IS NO FIX JUST YET. THE FLAW LETS HACKERS REMOTELY CONTROL YOUR ENTIRE MACHINE AND YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO LET THEM IN. JUST CLICK A BAD LINK. MICROSOFT SAYS THAT THE COMPANY IS WORKING HARD AT FINDING A PATCH BUT FOR NOW, MIGHT WANT TO SWITCH TO ANOTHER BROWSER. [*] HULU HAS ADDED ABC SHOWS TO ITS ALL-STAR LINEUP. WE HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS COMING BUT NOW THE NETWORK HAS STARTED TO ROLL OUT ITS PREMIUM LINEUP TO THE SITE ALONG WITH THE LIKES OF ABC, FOX, AND OTHER NETWORKS STREAMED FOR FREE. PROGRAMMING KICKS OFF WITH GREY'S ANATOMY. OKAY SO ITS NO LOST OR DANCING WITH THE STARS BUT THEY'LL GET THERE. LETS HOPE. [*] NOKIA ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY THAT IT IS NOT WORKING ON SMARTPHONE RUNNING ON GOOGLE���S ANDROID OPERATING SYSTEM. GOOGLE���S ANDROID IS A RIVAL TO NOKIA���S SYMBIAN SOFTWARE, BUT SO FAR ONLY A FEW ANDROID PHONES HAVE ACTUALLY REACHED THE CELLPHONE MARKET. STILL, SPECULATION HAS BEEN CIRCULATING THAT NOKIA WOULD JOIN THE CULT OF ANDROID, IF FOR NO OTHER REASON TO STANDARDIZE THEIR HANDSETS ON SOME LEVEL. NOKIA SAYS THEY'RE NOT SO I GUESS WE CAN TAKE THAT AT FACE VALUE FOR NOW. [*] ACCORDING TO REPORTS, BEST BUY HAS STARTED SELLING ELECTRIC VEHICLES. THIS MONTH, THE COMPANY WILL ADD BRAMMO'S ENERTIA ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE TO STORES. SOUNDS LIKE A BIT OF A STRETCH FOR BEST BUY, YET COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES CLAIM THAT THERE IS GROWING INTEREST IN ELECTRIC TRANSPORTATION AMONG TECHNOLOGY CONSUMERS. [*] SONY HAS FILED A PATENT FOR THE TECHNOLOGY USING THE PLAYSTATION EYE WHICH CAN DETECT REGULAR OBJECTS IN 3D SPACE AND STORE THEM IN A DATABASE FOR LATER USER DURING GAMEPLAY. NOW ANY REAL WORLD OBJECT CAN BE USED FOR A VIDEO GAME, SUCH AS COFFEE MUGS, BOOKS, OR BOTTLES ACCORDING TO THE PATENT. THE CAMERA MAPS AND RECORDS THE MOTION OF THE OBJECT. SO IF YOU WANT TO FIGHT OFF MONSTERS WITH YOUR FAVORITE KITCHEN MALLET, YOU CAN. [*] BLACKBERRY USERS WILL HAVE EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO SOME NEW U2 MUSIC. THE BAND IS REPORTEDLY RELEASING A MOBILE ALBUM AS A TEASER FOR THEIR UPCOMING REGULAR ALBUM CALLED "NO LINE ON THE HORIZON." THE MOBILE DEAL WILL HAVE SOME CONCERT VIDEOS AND BEHIND-THE-SCENES MATERIAL. RESEARCH IN MOTION, THE COMPANY THAT MAKES BLACKBERRY, IS ALSO SAID TO BE SPONSORING U2'S UPCOMING TOUR. SO KISS THE DAYS OF SEEING BONO SINGING INTO A MICROPHONE ON IPOD COMMERCIALS. [*] THE SURVIVING PARTS OF THE WORLD���S OLDEST BIBLE REUNITED ONLINE ON MONDAY. WE REPORTED ON THE BEGINNINGS OF THIS PROJECT LAST YEAR. THE CODEX SINAITICUS CONSISTS OF ANCIENT PARCHMENTS FROM THE MID-FOURTH CENTURY BELONGING TO MULTIPLE COLLECTIONS AROUND THE WORLD. THE BRITISH LIBRARY IN LONDON DIGITISED THE DELICATE PAGES OF THE ENTIRE BOOK OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS. [*] AOL HAS RELEASED A SLEW OF NEW BETA A-I-M CLIENTS FOR WINDOWS, MAC AND WINDOWS MOBILE. THIS TIME, HOWEVER, THEY ARE EMPHASIZING A NEW FEATURE, WHICH THEY CALL "THE LIFESTREAM". ESSENTIALLY, IT'S A SEPARATE TAB IN THE AIM CLIENT THAT GATHERS UPDATES FROM THE LIKES OF FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND AOL STATUS UPDATES. YOU'LL ALSO BE ABLE TO SHARE VIDEOS FROM YOUTUBE AND DELICIOUS. COOL STUFF. EXPECT TO SEE MORE SOCIAL SERVICES ADDED TO THESE NEW AIM CLIENTS IN THE NEAR FUTURE. [*] SADLY, TODAY IS THE FUNERAL SERVICE OF SINGER MICHAEL JACKSON. THE ORGANIZERS OF THE MEMORIAL SERVICE ASKED THAT THE FREE TICKETS TO THE EVENT NOT BE SCALPED BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THERE IS NO GETTING AROUND THAT. EARLY THIS WEEK, SITES LIKE CRAIGSLIST WERE HOSTING SCALPED TICKETS, SOME FOR AS MUCH AS $2,000. MOST LISTINGS WERE FLAGGED BUT SADLY SEVERAL STILL MADE IT THROUGH. FOR THOSE OF US NOT TASTELESS ENOUGH TO BUY OR SELL SCALPED TICKETS, YOU CAN OF COURSE WATCH THE EVENT ON CBS. WE WILL ALSO BE BROADCASTING LIVE ON CBSNEWS.COM. I'LL BE THERE ALL AFTERNOON HOSTING COVERAGE AND CHATTING LIVE OVER USTREAM. JOIN ME IF YOU CAN ON CBSNEWS.COM. YOU CAN FIND MORE SPECIFIC URL'S BY FOLLOWING ME ON TWITTER. [*] THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I WILL SEE YOU RIGHT HERE TOMORROW WITH MORE. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNETTV AND YOU JUST BEEN LOADED.
