>> Big news at Yahoo with the changing of the guard. Hulu maybe expanding overseas and your TiVo wants you to eat pizza. It's Tuesday, November 18th, I'm Natali Del Conte and it's time to get loaded. ^M00:00:12 [ Music ] ^M00:00:16 >> Get your resume in order. Yahoo is hiring for the position of CEO. Current CEO and co-founder Jerry Yang, has decided he's had enough fun for awhile and is stepping down from his post. All kidding aside I am sorry to see this happen. It's no secret that Yang has had a hard way to go during his tenure as CEO. He took the post when Terry Semel stepped down last year but it has just not gone his way. And admittedly, he's made some questionable decisions such as the dead Microsoft deal, so the search is on for who wants to be the next punching bag-CEO at Yahoo. Here's hoping to get some new momentum over there. Asus claims to be launching the fastest Smartphone in the world which seems likely given that it has an 800 megahertz processor--behold the Asus P565. I thought the days of numerical nomenclature in phones were over. Anyway, it runs Windows Mobile 6.1, has a 480 by 640 Touch-screen, HS GPA Wi-Fi GPS and video recording among other bells and whistles. We have no launch date or pricing for this phone just yet. TiVo users can now order a Domino's pizza right from the comfort of their couch with remote control in hand of course. Users can order in a number of ways by setting up an account with dominos.com or through interactive tags during live TV spots, or by clicking on order your pizza in the settings. The service is free for TiVo users but they'll have to pay cash. I suppose the only work involves a trip to your wallet and then to the door. Then again it might be a good idea to order pickup every now and again. You won't really break a sweat but at least it's some exercise. Major league baseball will no longer use Silverlight to run game footage online, instead they're moving over to Flash. This was announced at a conference in San Francisco on Monday. I did find it odd that they had been using Silverlight in the first place when an estimated 98% of the web uses Flash. They'll join the Flash dance for the 2009 season for all live and on-demand games. Google launched a new version of its 3D modeling software called SketchUp, SketchUp 7 and SketchUp Pro7 launched on Monday and the programs allow you to animate just about anything and everything from blueprints to video games. It's supposed to be more intuitive than previous versions of the software. It also has a database of common 3D models so you don't have to create everything from scratch. You can download it at sketchup.google.com. Every time I gush about how great Hulu is I get an e-mail from an overseas viewer who reminds me that people outside of the U.S. cannot enjoy the splendor that is Hulu, and then I feel really bad for them. I won't have to much longer though if a story out of Reuters is correct. Apparently News Corp and NBC, the owners of Hulu, want to expand the site into Britain, France, Germany and Japan. They don't have any concrete plans or launch dates just yet but I believe they'll keep their word. So let our viewers in those countries sit tight for just a little bit longer. Hulu's worth the wait. You shouldn't feel old and out of touch if your gadget's failing you. You should feel old if you panic about it though. A new study out of the Pew Internet and American life Project shows that young people's gadgets and gismos fail them just as often as older people's do. The difference is that young people feel confident that they'll figure it out and get right back on track, while older people get confused, exasperated and discouraged. The 18 to 29 year old age bracket was also much more likely to fix the problems themselves rather than head off to a friend or user support service. The good news is that regardless of age, 44% of people have had problems with their home Internet access, 39% had problems with computers or laptops, 29% had problems with cell phones, and 15% had problems with MP3 players. Now you may not consider that good news but what I'm trying to say is that it happens to everyone. So the next time you feel like you're having bad gadget luck just take a deep breath and calm down. Those are all your headlines for today but I will see you right back here tomorrow. Thank you for watching. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV and you've just been loaded.
