IT'S TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17TH, I'M NATALI MORRIS AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] GOOGLE LAUNCHED BOUTIQUES-DOT-COM, A HIGH-FASHION SHOPPING SITE. IT WILL FOCUS ON FASHION, ACCESSORIES, AND OTHER KINDS OF "SOFT GOODS" THAT ARE JUST TOO COUTURE FOR SOMETHING PEDESTRIAN LIKE GOOGLE-DOT-COM-SLASH-SHOPPING. [*] GOOGLE ALSO LAUNCHED HOTSPOT TO HELP YOU FIND LOCAL HOTSPOTS. IT IS A SOCIAL RECOMMENDATION ENGINE. SO YOU CONNECT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND GOOGLE WILL TAILER RECOMMENDATIONS BASED ON WHAT THEY LIKE AND BASED ON THE BROADER POOL OF RATINGS IN GOOGLE PLACES. AND OF COURSE THEY WANT YOU TO RATE THE PLACES THAT YOU GO TOO. [*] HULU PLUS IS NOW ON THE ROKU. THIS IS THE SET-TOP BOX THAT BRINGS YOU TV ENTERTAINMENT OVER YOUR HOME INTERNET CONNECTION. HULU PLUS IS NOW IN THE ROKU STORE SO IF YOU PAY THE $7.99 PER MONTH FOR HULU PLUS, YOU CAN GET PREMIUM SHOWS FROM BROADCAST NETWORKS LIKE NBC AND FOX. THAT'S RIGHT I SAID $7.99, NOT $9.99. HULU PLUS GOT A PRICE CUT, SAVING YOU A WHOLE $2 PER MONTH. DON'T SPEND IT ALL IN ONE PLACE. [*] A FEW YAHOO ANNOUNCEMENTS. FIRST OFF, THE COMPANY REVAMPED YAHOO CALENDAR MAKING IT MUCH MORE COMPETITIVE TO GOOGLE CALENDAR WITH SINGLE URL SHARING. THEY ALSO ANNOUNCED YAHOO LOCAL OFFERS. IT IS A PARTNERSHIP WITH LCOAL BUSINESSES TO HELP PEOPLE FIND DEALS IN THEIR AREA. THERE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE A CONSUMER LANDING PAGE OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. THE DEALS WILL COME TO US THROUGH YAHOO PRODUCTS IN GENERAL. THERE ARNE'T MANY SPECIFICS YET. AND FINALLY, YAHOO LAUNCHED YAHOO CLUES. IT IS A SERVICE THAT GIVES YOU SOME INSIGHT ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE ARE SEARCHING FOR ONLINE AND IN WHAT VOLUME. IT IS A LOT LIKE GOOGLE-DOT-COM-SLASH-TRENDS. YOU CAN FIND IT AT CLUES-DOT-YAHOO-DOT-COM. [*] NOT ONLY DOES AMAZON SELL MOVIES, THEY ALSO WANT TO MAKE MOVIES. THE COMPANY IS SEARCHING FOR THE NEXT BIG THING IN ENTERTAINMENT WITH AMAZON STUDIOS. IT IS AN OPEN SOURCE COMMUNITY FOR SHARING PROJECT IDEAS AND GETTING MOVIES MADE. AMAZON HAS PARTNERED WITH WARNER BROTHERS TO ACTUALLY MAKE MOVIES THAT THEY FIND IN THE OPEN-SOURCE TALENT POOL. YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE AT VISIT STUDIOS-DOT-AMAZON-DOT-COM. [*] THE EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM IS COMING TO YOUR CELL PHONE. ALCATEL-LUCENT CREATED SOMETHING CALLED THE BROADCAST MESSAGE CENTER. IT GIVES GOVERNMENT THE ABILITY TO SEND INFORMATION ALERTS TO MOBILE PHONES IN THE CASE OF AN EMERGENCY. THIS IS LIKE THE EMERGENCY PRACTICE MESSAGE THAT INTERRUPTS SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS EXCEPT IT WILL BE ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE AND YOU CAN IGNORE IT A LOT EASIER. BUT I'M GUESSING YOU SHOULDN'T. [*] INTEL WANTS TO PUT COMPUTER CHIPS INSIDE OF FOOTBALL HELMETS. THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO PROVIDE REAL-TIME IMPACT DATA TO MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS. THIS WAY THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO COLLECT MORE DATA ABOUT HEAD TRAUMA AND PREVENT REPEAT OFFENSES. WE DON'T KNOW WHEN THEY WOULD DO THIS. [*] AND FINALLY, WE KNOW YOU LOVE YOUR DIGITAL CAMERA BUT DO YOU LOVE IT ENOUGH TO IMPLANT IT INTO YOUR HEAD? AN NYU PROFESSOR IS GOING TO DO JUST THAT. WAFAA BILAL IS GOING TO HAVE A SMALL CAMERA IMPLANTED IN HIS HEAD TO LIVE STREAM HIS LECTURES TO QATAR. THE PROJECT WILL BE CALLED THE 3RD I. OKAY I CAN SEE THE MERIT OF SOMETHING LIKE THIS. IT IS AVANT GARDE AND INTERESTING. BUT HOW DO YOU CHARGE THAT THING? [*] THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW. I'M NATALI MORRIS FOR CNET.COM AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
