MICROSOFT WANTS TO PAY YOU TO USE BING, LG IS ABOUT TO SHOW OFF A NEW OLED SCREEN, AND HOW TO FIND THE LOCH NESS MONSTER USING GOOGLE EARTH. ITS MONDAY, AUGUST 31ST. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE. IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] MICROSOFT'S BING ADS ARE NOW OFFERING CONSUMERS MONEY FOR SHOPPING ON THE SEARCH ENGINE. THE PROGRAM IS CALLED CASHBACK OF ALL THINGS, AND IT LETS YOU SHOP ONLINE AND SAVE UP MONEY FOR BUYING WITH PARTICIPATING RETAILERS. YOU GET A LIST OF ITEMS AND VARIOUS PRICES FOR THOSE ITEMS. WHEN YOU MAKE A PURCHASE, YOUR CASHBACK SAVINGS GET PUT INTO AN ACCOUNT. ONEC YOU HIT AT LEAST $5 IN SAVINGS, YOU CAN REQUEST THAT MONEY BE SENT TO YOU. THERE HAVE BEEN PROGRAMS LIKE THIS ONLINE BEFORE BUT THEY NEVER REALLY TOOK OFF. WE'LL SEE WHAT THIS ONE DOES CONSIDERING IT HAS THE MICROSOFT NAME BEHIND IT. IT'S A GOOD THING TO KEEP IN MIND FOR THE HOLIDAYS. [*] SAMSUNG IS GOING TO LAUNCH A MOBILE APPLICATION STORE ON ITS HANDSETS, BUT NOT HERE IN THE U.S. AT LEAST NOT AT FIRST. THE APP STORE WILL LAUNCH ON SEPTEMBER 14 IN EUROPE. IT WILL INCLUDE OVER 300 APPLICATIONS BUT THE COMPANY EXPECTS THAT NUMBER TO GROW TO 2000 BY THE END OF 2009. [*] AUGMENTED REALITY IS BECOMING...WELL, A REALITY. AUGMENTED REALITY IS A FEATURE THAT LETS YOU SEE VIRTUAL IMAGERY OR INFORMATION ABOUT THINGS IN REAL LIFE USING ANY KIND OF GADGET OR ELECTRONIC. TWO ACTUAL APPLICATIONS LAUNCHED WITH AUGMENTED REALITY LAST WEEK. THE FIRST WAS AN APP CALLED METRO PARIS SUBWAY THAT GIVES YOU VIRTUAL INFORMATION ABOUT TRAVELING IN PARIS. THE SECOND IS YELP, THE BUSINESS REVIEW SITE. THE NEW IPHONE APPLICATION HAS A FEATURE CALLED MONOCLE. YOU SHAKE THE APP AND THE PHONE'S GPS AND COMPASS OVERLAYS RESTAURANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE RESTAURANTS NEAR YOU. IT IS PRETTY COOL ALTHOUGH YOU HAVE TO GIVE IT A REAL GOOD SHAKE TO GET IT GOING. I NEARLY THREW MY SHOULDER OUT ACTIVATING IT. [*] A FEW WEEKS AGO, SONY ANNOUNCED THAT IT WAS GOING TO HOLD OFF ON MAKING OLED TV'S. THESE ARE THE SUPER HIGH DEFINITION FLATSCREENS THAT WE STARTED TO SEE LAST YEAR AT CES. WELL LG IS GOING FULL STEAM AHEAD. THE COMPANY IS SAID TO BE LAUNCHING A NEW 15-INCH OLED IN THE NEXT MONTH. IT WILL BE UNVEILED AT THE IFA 2009 CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW IN BERLIN IN SEPTEMBER AND GO ON SALE IN KOREA IN NOVEMBER. IT IS SUPPOSED TO GO ON SALE IN OTHER COUNTRIES EARLY NEXT YEAR. OKAY FINE BUT IT WILL PROBABLY BE EXPENSIVE AND IT STILL ONLY 15 INCHES. THE COMPANY DOES SAY THAT IT WILL LAUNCH A 40-INCH OLED IN THE "NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE." [*] IF YOU FEEL LIKE THE REAL ESTATE ON YOUR LAPTOP SCREEN IS INCREASINGLY PRECIOUS AND SPARE, CONSIDER THE SPACEBOOK. THIS IS A LAPTOP THAT ALLOWS YOU TO FOLD OPEN TWO 15-INCH SCREENS. IT COMES FROM A COMPANY CALLED GSCREEN. IT IS MOSTLY DESIGNED FOR PROFESSIONAL VIDEO EDITORS, PHOTOGRAPHERS AND DESIGNERS, BUT I COULD DEFINITELY USE IT. MY ONLY CONCERN IS THAT IT WOULD BE HEAVY AND IT IS EXPENSIVE. $3,000. OUCH. IT IS SUPPOSED TO GO ON SALE ON AMAZON IN DECEMBER. THANK YOU TO TWITTER USER SEABOARD FOR TIPPING US OFF ON THIS STORY. [*] GOOGLE DOCS CAN NOW TRANSLATE THEMSELVES FROM ONE LANGUAGE TO THE NEXT. WITHIN A DOCUMENT, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO AUTOMATICALLY TRANSLATE DOCUMENTS INTO 42 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES. IT WORKS IN A MATTER OF SECONDS AND YOU CAN EITHER REPLACE THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENT OR MAKE A NEW TRANSLATED VERSION. OF COURSE, GOOGLE'S LANGUAGE TRANSLATOR IS NOT FOOL PROOF BUT IT IS PRETTY CLOSE. YOUR READER WILL GET THE GENERAL IDEA. [*] FOX HAS FOUND A WAY TO LIVEN UP RE-RUNS OF OLD SITCOMS: TWITTER. THE NETWORK WILL ADD TWITTER COMMENTARY TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN WHEN IT PLAYS RE-RUNS OF FRINGE AND GLEE. THIS WILL BE A MODERATED STREAM OF COURSE SO YOU CAN'T JUST RING IN WITH OBSCENITIES. IN FACT, MOST OF THE TWEETS WILL BE FROM THE SHOWS' CAST AND CREW. YOU CAN SEE THE LONGER FEED OF VIEWER TWEETS BY CHECKING OUT EACH SHOW'S TWITTER PAGE. [*] A 25 YEAR-OLD SECURITY GUARD IN ENGLAND THINKS HE FOUND THE LOCH NESS MONSTER ON GOOGLE EARTH. THIS IS THE URBAN LEGEND LAKE MONSTER, FIRST SEEN OVER 1500 YEARS AGO IN SCOTTLAND. JASON COOKE BELIEVES THAT HE FOUND THE MONSTER AT THE GOOGLE EARTH COORDINATES ON THE SCREEN. I TRIED TO FIND IT MYSELF AND YEAH I'M NOT CONVINCED. [*] THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY AND I WILL OF COURSE SEE YOU TOMORROW. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNET TV AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
