Loaded: The Walrus on iTunes

Culture
It's Tuesday, November 16th. I'm Natali Morris and it's time to get loaded. Apple announced that it is at last carrying the Beatles' music on iTunes. How many years have we been speculating that this would happen? It finally did happen with an announcement on Apple.com on Tuesday morning. This is the first time that the Beatles have sold their music digitally, unless you count Rock Band: Beatles Edition, which I kinda don't. As expected, Facebook unveiled a new messaging system on Monday. It's going to roll out slowly but basically it's an integration with e-mail, texting, and instant messaging. You will get an @facebook e-mail address and you can communicate with people who are not on Facebook. It sounds a lot like Google Wave. It's real time communication with basically everyone. It will also have integration with Microsoft Office so you can share and work on Office documents within your Facebook account. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was clear that this is not e-mail, it's something much bigger than e-mail, but I would say, it's glorified e-mail. Google Shopping will now be able to run inventory checks on products that you want to purchase, so say you wanna get a Microsoft Kinect. You can search it on Google Shopping and see if your local Best Buy has it in stock. You can even get a map to that Best Buy so you don't get lost, saving you both time and gas. Wal-Mart had some leaked Black Friday deals on Monday. They include a 15-inch laptop for around $300 which is crazy town. Meanwhile, Borders Books unveiled a new website with more discounts, social features, and a lot of free shipping. The social features let you share your book purchasing information with your friends on Facebook. The ASUS tablet is not dead. This is the tablet computer we learned about this summer. It was supposed to come out in September and be called the Eee PC Tablet but now we think it will be out in early 2011 and be called the Eee Note or the Digital Note, another reason to look forward to the Consumer Electronic Show in January. And, finally, the world's first 3D heart surgery is scheduled to happen today. A cardiologist in England will be performing the surgery with advanced 3D mapping to treat a 63-year-old person's heart. He will use a software called CARTO 3 and insert a thin wire catheter into the heart to direct energy into parts of the heart that are causing the arrhythmia. Little bit over my head but sounds very cool. Those are your headlines for today. I will see you tomorrow. I'm Natali Morris for CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
