Microsoft creates a social network for students

Culture
It's time to share your searches, stream new contents and earn good karma . I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update. With all the news focused around Facebook, Microsoft just quietly launched its own social network for students called So.cl . It's not like Facebook or Google+. Rather its described as an experimental constant and search. What student search for on So.cl is viewable by other social users and can be shared on other networks. The ideas to give students the ability to share information easily with their peers. The video streaming service Hulu has unveiled 10 original and exclusive shows that it will begin airing June. Streaming video providers like Netflix and Amazon are also producing original content to stay competitive, but as for Hulu, the original shows will include a movie review series called Spoilers with Kevin Smith, a travel series Up to Speed and a comedy called We Got Next. Hulu plus both 2 million subscribers. In other news, we're watching the historic launch of the Space X, Falcon 9 Rocket did not occur as scheduled on Saturday due to last minute computer drama, the mission was aborted. The rockets roared clouds of exhaust poured out and they count it down, three , two , one lift off , but no lift. The team has worked to replace the problems out and its making another attempt to launch early Tuesday at 3:44 AM Eastern Time. A newly discovered warning message on Apple IOS devices has people speculating about the future of Facetime. that's Apple's video chat program. If users disable 3g while in a Facetime call, a pop up says, disabling 3g may end Facetime. Are you sure you wanted to disable 3g? But right now, 3g has nothing to do with Facetime, its something that can only occur over a WiFi connection. So, some are speculating this is a sign of the next update might allow video calls over a 3g connection. The end with patent wars between Apple and Samsung may find some resolution. Tuesday, the court orders the CEO's of both companies to meet and try to resolve some of the intellectual property law suits against each other. The legal disputes began in April last year when Apple accused Samsung of copying the look and feel of the iPad and iPhone and Samsung responded with counter suit. And today's App To Watch is Karma. A gift giving app that Facebook bought up right after the markets closed on Facebook's first day of public trading. Karma scans your Facebook feed for who is having a birthday or who is going to major life event and it suggest gift for you to purchase to send to them. Real physical gifts like chocolates, notebooks or socks. This is again Facebook's another way to bring in more revenue. That's your tech news update for today.
