YAHOO LAUNCHES A NEW DEALS SITE, MAKING CHECK DEPOSITS USING YOUR CELL PHONE CAMERA, AND GOOGLE VOICE COMES BACK TO THE IPHONE....SORT OF. ITS MONDAY, AUGUST 10TH. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] YAHOO LAUNCHED YAHOO DEALS TODAY. IT IS A SITE WHERE YOU CAN FIND DAILY DEALS AND COUPONS. THERE IS ALSO A SOCIAL ASPECT THAT LETS YOU SHARE DEALS WITH YOUR FRIENDS OVER EMAIL OR OVER YOUR SOCIAL NETWORKS. YOU CAN ALSO POST COMMENTS ON EACH DEAL FOR OTHERS TO SEE. THERE IS ALSO A TWITTER FEED YOU CAN FOLLOW SO YOU DON'T MISS A GREAT DEAL ON A DOWN COMFORTER. IT IS TWITTER.COM/YAHOO_DEALS. [*] ANOTHER IMPORTANT FIGURE IN U.S. CYBER SECURITY HAS STEPPED DOWN. MISCHEL KWON, NOT THE ICE SKATER, THE DIRECTOR OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY'S U.S. COMPUTER EMERGENCY READINESS TEAM, HAS RESIGNED. SHE WAS IN CHARGE OF PROTECTING CIVILIAN GOVERNMENT COMPUTER NETWORKS. THIS FOLLOWS THE RESIGNATION OF WHITE HOUSE CYBERSECUIRTY OFFICIAL MELISSA HATHAWAY LAST WEEK. THE WASHINGTON POST REPORTS THAT KWON WAS FRUSTRATED BY THE BUREAUCRATIC OBSTACLES AND LACK OF AUTHORITY TO CARRY OUT HER IDEAS. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THAT WOULD BE TOUGH. IF THAT IS TRUE, IT IS DISCOURAGING, BUT NEVERTHELESS WE WISH HER THE BEST. [*] GOOGLE VOICE WILL BE COMING BACK TO THE IPHONE, BUT NOT AS A REGULAR ITUNES APP. IT WILL BE A WEB APP THROUGH THE PHONE'S SAFARI BROWSER. DAVID POGUE WROTE ABOUT THIS IN HIS NEW YORK TIMES COLUMN. HE SAID THAT THE WEB APP WOULD BEHAVE EXACTLY AS THE HOMESCREEN APP WOULD: CALLING, TEXTING, VIOCEMAIL, SMS, ETC. GOOGLE HAS NOT CONFIRMED HOW CLOSE THIS PROJECT IS TO COMPLETION. [*] TIME TO GET CONTROVERSIAL. THE INTERNET GAMBLING DEBATE IS BACK. A NEW BILL WAS INTRODUCED INTO THE SENATE LATE LAST WEEK BY NEW JERSEY SENATOR ROBERT MENENDEZ. IT IS CALLED THE INTERNET POKER AND GAMES OF SKILL REGULATION, PROTECTION, AND ENFORCEMENT ACE. IT WOULD ALLOW E-GAMBLING COMPANIES THAT ARE REGISTERED WITH THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT LEGALLY ACCEPT BETS ON THE INTERNET. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED SHOULD BE LEGALIZED, REGULATED, AND TAXED. I THINK IT IS ABSURD THAT IT ISN'T NOW BECAUSE THE BAN JUST SENDS U.S. DOLLARS OVERSEAS WHEN PEOPLE DO IT ANYWAY THROUGH OFFSHORE SITES. MENENDEZ ESTIMATES THAT LEGALIZING ONLINE GAMBLING COULD BRING IN UP TO $3 BILLION A YEAR IN TAXES TO OUR GOVERNMENT. SEEMS LIKE A GOOD BET TO ME. [*] APPLE WON A CUSTOMER SHOWDOWN RECENTLY IN LAPTOP MAGAZINE FOR HAVING THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE IN TECH SUPPORT. LAPTOP MAGAZINE RATED 10 MANUFACTURERS AND GAVE THEM LETTER GRADES. APPLE GOT AN A THIS YEAR, KEEPING THEIR GPA UP SINCE THEY ALSO HAD A'S IN 2007 AND 2008. RIGHT BEHIND THEM WITH B+'S: TOSHIBA AND SONY. [*] SPEAKING OF APPLE, A NEW BANK IS LETTING CUSTOMERS MAKE DEPOSITS USING ITS IPHONE APPLICATION. CUSTOMERS OF USAA CAN TAKE IMAGES OF THE FRONT AND BACK OF A CHECK AND SEND IT INTO THE BANK FOR DEPOSIT. CUSTOMERS WON'T HAVE TO MAIL THE CHECK LATER, THE ENTIRE DEPOSIT WILL BE ELECTRONIC. ONLY 60 PERCENT OF THE BANK'S CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE GOOD CREDIT AND STANDING WITH THE BANK WILL BE ELLIGIBLE FOR THIS PROGRAM. IRONICALLY, THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO PROBABLY ALMOST NEVER SEE AN ACTUAL CHECK AND HAVE ALL THEIR PAYCHECKS SENT OVER DIRECT DEPOSIT. STILL A GOOD IDEA. IF ONLY THE IPHONE COULD WORK AS A FULLY FUNCTIONAL ATM AND DISPENSE CASH NOW. [*] IS 12 INCHES TOO BIG? GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER, I'M TALKING ABOUT NETBOOKS OF COURSE!! DELL THINKS 12 INCHES IS TOO BIG FOR A NETBOOK SO THE COMPANY IS GOING TO PHASE OUT THE DELL INSPIRON MINI 12. I AGREE 12 INCHES IS TOO BIG. THAT IS NOT A NETBOOK. THAT IS A LAPTOP. DELL WILL INSTEAD BRING BACK THE MINI 9 FOR $299. THE MINI 10 WILL REMAIN ON THE MARKET AS IS. [*] A 15 YEAR OLD BOY DIED AFTER EXTREME INTERVENTION AT A CYBER ADDICTION CAMP. POLICE ARE INVESTIGATING THE DEATH OF DENG SENSHAN AFTER INJURIES WERE FOUND ALL OVER HIS BODY. FOUR TRAINERS FROM THE CAMP HAVE BEEN DETAINED. SENSHAN HAD BEEN ADMITTED TO THE CAMP FOR INTERNET ADDICTION BUT IT IS REPORTED THAT THESE CAMPS ARE HIGHLY MILITANT. PATIENTS ARE MADE TO REPLACE ONLINE TIME WITH PHYSICAL DRILLS OR OTHER CONTROVERSIAL INTERVENTION METHODS. LAST MONTH ELECTRO- SHOCK THERAPY WAS BANNED BUT CERTAINLY MORE TREATMENTS LIKE THIS ARE BEING DEPLOYED. THIS IS NO LAUGHING MATTER. THIS ISN'T 1950'S MENTAL INSTITUTIONS WE ARE TAKLING ABOUT. THESE ARE MODERN INSTITUTIONS DEALING WITH A MODERN PROBLEM. IT IS NO LONGER A LAUGHING MATTER. [*] IF YOU LIVE IN BLACKHAWK COUNTY, IOWA, YOU CAN NOW TEXT MESSAGE AN EMERGENCY TO 911. THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT IDEA BUT WE WILL HAVE TO WATCH IT IN PRACTICE TO SEE IF IT REALLY IS. FIRST OFF, HOW TO YOU TELL THE REAL ONES FROM THE IDIOTS? THAT IS MUCH EASIER ON THE PHONE THAN OVER TEXT. ALSO, CAN THE CARRIERS PRIORITIZE 911 TEXTS? IF NOT, THEY SHOULD. AND IS 160 CHARACTERS ENOUGH TO EXPLAIN AN EMERGENCY? I'M NOT SURE LIKE THE IDEA OF THIS AND AM GLAD THAT AT LEAST ONE COUNTY IS WILLING TO TRY. [*] THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY . I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW WITH MORE. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNET TV AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
