WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW T-MOBILE MYTOUCH, LG SHOWS OFF A HIGH-DEF CAMERA PHONE, AND WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET RIPPED OFF ON CRAIGSLIST. ITS THURSDAY, JULY 9TH. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] T-MOBILE SHOWED OFF ITS NEW ANDROID PHONE HERE IN NEW YORK YESTERDAY. WE GOT A CHANCE TO PLAY WITH THE DEVICE. TAKE A LOOK. [*] THE MYTOUCH WILL COST $199 WITH A 2-YEAR CONTRACT. IT LAUNCHES ON AUGUST 5. [*] PANDORA FOUNDER TIM WESTERGREN ANNOUNCED THAT THE MUSIC SERVICE WILL NO LONGER BE FREE FOR ALL USERS. BUT IT WILL STILL BE REALLY CHEAP. USERS WITH A FREE ACCOUNT CAN LISTEN TO 40 HOURS PER MONTH UNTIL THEY HAVE TO PAY $0.99 TO RESUME UNLIMITED LISTENING FOR THE MONTH. ACCORDING TO THE BLOG, IT WILL AFFECT THE TOP 10% OF LISTENERS, BUT STILL IT���S NOT A STEEP PRICE TO PAY. [*] THE AMAZON KINDLE 2 IS NOW $60 CHEAPER. THE DIGITAL READER COSTS $299 INSTEAD OF $359, ALTHOUGH REMEMBER THAT IT DOES NOT COME WITH THE LEATHER CASE SO FACTOR IN AN EXTRA $30 FOR THAT. STILL, IT STANDS TO REASON THAT AMAZON WOULD BE DROPPING THE PRICE OF THE DEVICE BECAUSE $360 IS JUST TOO MUCH FOR A ONE-TRICK-PONY, EVEN IF THAT PONY'S TRICK IS PRETTY AWESOME. [*] THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF WESTERN VIRGINIA FILED A LAW SUIT AGAINST COMCAST. THE SUIT CLAIMS THAT IT IS ILLEGAL FOR CABLE COMPANIES TO REQUIRE CUSTOMERS TO PURCHASE THE COMPANY'S CABLE BOX IN ORDER TO TO RECEIVE PREMIUM SERVICES. IT DOES SEEM RATHER UNFAIR THAT YOU CAN'T PURCHASE YOUR OWN CABLE BOX AT A DISCOUNT PRICE. EVEN THOUGH THIS SUIT TARGETS COMCAST, IT COULD APPLY TO ANY CABLE TV SERVICE PROVIDER THAT DOES NOT ALLOW CUSTOMERS TO USE THIRD-PARTY HARDWARE. [*] SPRINT ALONG WITH SCREENVISION WILL BEGIN TO ADVERTISE IN THE LOBBIES OF MOVIE THEATERS. STARTING THIS MONTH THROUGH DECEMBER, IT WILL PLACE KIOSKS IN 500 THEATERS NATIONWIDE. THE KIOSKS INTRUCT SPRINT CUSTOMERS TO TEXT A CERTAIN WORD (LIKE ���SPRINT���) TO A PHONE NUMBER. THEN THE CUSTOMER RECEIVES A TEXT MESSAGE THAT INCLUDES A STRING OF LETTERS AND NUMBERS. THEN PEOPLE HOLD UP THEIR CELL PHONES, SCAN THE CODE ON THE DEVICE NEXT TO THE KIOSK, AND BROWSE THE OFFERS ON THE SCREEN. ONCE A CUSTOMER SELECTS THEIR OFFER, THE KIOSK PRINTS A RECEIPT THAT PEOPLE CAN TAKE TO THE CONCESSION FOR A FREE UPGRADE TO A LARGE POPCORN. SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF BACK-AND-FORTH WORK JUST TO GET A REASONABLE PRICE ON YOUR SODA. I'M NOT GOING TO ENCOURAGE RULE BREAKING BUT A 99-CENT PACK OF M&M'S FROM THE DRUG STORE DOES FIT IN MY PURSE. I'M JUST SAYING. [*] MOZILLA IS SAID TO BE BRINGING MULTI-PROCESSING TO FIREFOX. THIS IS STRAIGHT OUT OF GOOGLE'S PLAYBOOK. GOOGLE'S CHROME HAS MULTI-PROCESSING. IT SPLITS UP PAGE RENDERING INTO MULTIPLE PROCESSES SO THAT YOUR BROWSER IS FASTER. MOZILLA'S VERSION IS CALLED ELECTROLYSIS. IF YOU'RE A GUY, YOU MIGHT NOT FIND THAT FUNNY. IF YOU'RE A WOMAN, YOU MIGHT KNOW THAT ELECTROLYSIS IS A PAINFUL ELECTRIC SHOCK HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT. I DON'T THINK IT WORKS WELL FOR A TECHNOLOGY PRODUCT. OUCH. [*] LG IS SHOWING OFF A PHONE WITH A HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO CAMERA BUT FOR NOW IT IS JUST A CONCEPT AND NOT ANYTHING WE'LL BE ABLE TO BUY FOR A WHILE. IT IS CALLED THE GC990 LOUVRE AND IT HAS A 12 MEGAPIXEL HD VIDEO CAMERA THAT CAN RECORD VIDEO AT 720 P AND 20 FRAMES PER SECOND. IT IS ALSO SUPPOSED TO HAVE BLUETOOTH, DIV-X SUPPORT, A TV-OUT, AND 3.2-INCH TOUCHSCREEN. [*] HERE IS A LITTLE HUMOR FOR YOUR WEEKEND, AT OTHER PEOPLE'S EXPENSE: A NEW SITE CALLED ITEM-NOT-AS-DESCRIBED EXAMINES SOME OF THE SCAMS ON CRAIGSLIST. IT SHOWS PHOTOS FROM PEOPLE WHO GOT SOMETHING FREE ON CRAIGSLIST THAT THEY WISH THAT THEY HAD NOT. FOR EXAMPLE, SEE EXHIBIT A. IT WAS DESCRIBED AS: Free, off white/grey toilets. a little dirty but not damaged. must pick up. e-mail for location or questions." A LITTLE DIRTY BUT NOT DAMAGED? I HOPE YOU WON'T HAVE TO USE THIS SITE FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN HUMOR. IF NOTHING ELSE, IT IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THE SAYING: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LUNCH...OR TOILET. [*] THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. BEFORE I GO, I WANT TO WISH A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JUSTIN, AND AHLAM. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND. WE WILL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNETTV AND YOU JUST BEEN LOADED.
