One last time to get Loaded

Culture
It's Thursday, April 12, 2012. I'm Bridget Carey on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. There's lot of Google related news today and we start with a blog post about Android Security that's causing quite (dister?). A researcher from a security group demonstrated that Android Apps are able to access sensitive personal information even when the app itself doesn't require permission to access data. This no permission apps that can be appeared to be harmless can still access a device as (D-Card?), Handset Identification Data and files stored by other apps. And the app can transmit information back to an outside party. So what you can do?. Well, until something is fixed. Android user should a voice saving sensitive data like photos and work files on the (SD-Card?). And be aware of what you download just because an app doesn't ask information to access data and it apparently still can. Google Plus has gotten a facelift. The social network has been redesigned with the hopes of making the site easier to use. The navigation bar moved from the top to the left. It's customizable and photos posted will show up larger on the page. But it also has a good chunk of unused White space on the right side about 40% of the right side is blank. Leaving users to pock fund at what they could put in that space. One user took a picture of there cat sitting in the space. Another user fill the space with facebook browser window or perhaps the white space is for Betty White. Sony has introduce a watch that would communicate with your Android phone. It's called Smart Watch and has a price tag of $150 and will allow users to read text messages, get social media updates, check e-mail, manage calls and control music. It connnects to an Android phone via Bluetooth and when there's an even alert or upcoming call the watch vibrates. It's supposedly will run for 4 days in a single charge in a splash proof. This is Sony 2nd attempt in a watch that works with Android Phones. Back in 2010 it created the Live View which ended up being a flap. And we end today's show with a big announcement. This will be the final episode of loaded. But don't you (??) because in the next few days I'm coming back with a brand new daily tech new show it's called CNET update. And it'll be available 5 days a week. You'll still get a quick breakdown on the biggest news in tech but it'll be delivered every afternoon in a new format. We'll tell you the developing stories we're watching as well as the merging trends and new apps to check out. When you visit to CNET.com you'll find the CNET update in a new interactive video player that would give you links to more information on each story. We thank you for watching loaded all this years and we can't wait to show you what's in store. From CNET's New York Studio. I'm Bridget Carey and you just been loaded. z
