It's Thursday January 13th. I'm Natali Morris, and it's time to get Loaded. Spotify has teamed up with Shazam so that users of iPhone and Android phones can use Shazam to discover music and then use Spotify to purchase it. Shazam is the app that helps you identify the name of a song by playing, singing, or humming part of it. Spotify is Europe's most popular music streaming and purchasing service. The app featuring both will be available later this quarter but not for US users. Reports of a new PlayStation Portable device have started to circulate. This is not to be confused with the PlayStation Portable Android phone which we are also anticipating. The PSP already had an update about a year and a half ago with the PSP Go, but that obviously was not a success. Sony may unveil another go-around of the device on January 27th at an event in Tokyo. The AMBER Alert System now has come to Facebook. This is the notification system that law enforcement uses to let the public know when a child has gone missing. You may have already heard these alerts on the radio or on your TV, but now you can receive them on Facebook, too. The alerts will be opt in and you will only see them about the state that you designate. It's not a bad thing to opt into. We certainly have more annoying things in our feeds when you say. For more information, go to facebook.com/amberalert. Google is going to start including pre-video ads on mobile videos for Android phones. It will also have the entire music video catalog from VEVO available for your viewing pleasure. VEVO serves videos from popular artists like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Music videos were previously hard to find on mobile Youtube because Youtube was not selling ads there. Now, the ads, Youtube can afford to change that. Google also launched Google Places and Hotpot for iPhone. These are location search and recommendation apps much like Yelp. You may recall that Google tried to purchase Yelp last year, but did not succeed. This is their own attempt to do the same thing. These apps already exist for Android. Microsoft is launching a website for newbies to build websites and web tools. The site is called Web Matrix, and it is geared towards students and new developers to learn to write code. You can find it at Microsoft.com/web/webmatrix. And finally this one is for the space lovers, and I do mean lovers. The Journal of Cosmology has published a new report detailing a mission to Mars. It states that if humans are serious about getting to Mars, they must study reproduction from all angles- how, where, why, etc. It's kind of a fun read. You can find it at journalofcosmology.com Volume 12. That's your news of the day. If you want more info on anything we've discussed, you can find links at cnet.com/loaded. I'll see you tomorrow. I'm Natali Morris for CNET.com, and you've just been loaded.
