New Mac Pros, Mac Minis

Culture
It's Monday, June 20th, 2011. I'm Wilson Tang on CNET.com and it's time to get Loaded. According to CNET's own Brian Tong, Apple may be gearing up to unveil new Mac Pros and Mac Minis in the last week of July or first week of August. The new Macs will likely be powered by Intel's Sandy Bridge processors, feature the new high-speed Thunderbolt data ports, and run Mac OS X Lion. So far, there are no details about design updates. Hackers continue on their online rampage and attacked the Sega Pass service. Reports suggest that 1.3 million user names and encrypted passwords were stolen in the attack. In a letter to Sega's users, the company says that the passwords were not stored as plain text and that no credit card or private information was stolen because they're stored on a third-party service. Sega suggests that you immediately change your passwords if you use the same logins for different sites. As of now, Sega Pass is still offline but surprisingly, the notorious hacker group, LulzSec, has offered to help find the intruders. The 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button has been part of Google's homepage for years now, but the company may be considering removing the button altogether. Google has been testing new designs that get rid of the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button and just replace both search buttons with an eyeglass icon. The 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button skips Google's search results page and instead goes directly to the first search result. The internet's primary governing board, ICANN, has approved the dramatic expansion of the number of new top-level domains. Currently, there are 22 top-level domains including the well-establish '.com,' '.net,' and '.org' TLDs. The new generic top-level domains are expected to expand everything from '.car' to '.movie' to '.gay.' Fees for applications start at $185,000 and it's expected that many corporations will apply for top-level domains for their trademarks. Skype was recently purchased by Microsoft and the news has leaked that the internet giant is firing senior executives ahead of the deal's closure to reduce their payouts. Bloomberg reports that four vice-presidents, including the company's head of marketing and human resources, were dismissed. On Friday, the Federal Trade Commission gave its blessing to the Microsoft-Skype deal and Microsoft plans to integrate Skype technology into products like Xbox Kinect and Outlook. Speaking of Skype, it looks like HP's webOS may be integrating Skype directly into the operating system. Screenshots of the new HP Pre3 shows Skype integration similar to how Google Voice integrates on their Android phones. Users will be able to route all international calls through Skype or force the user to ask every time they press the dial button. Video conferencing is expected to work on some networks. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
