YouTube gets live streaming

Culture
IT'S MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH, I'M JEFF BAKALAR, AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. IT APPEARS YOUTUBE IS READY TO START TESTING WITH LIVE STREAMING FUNCTIONALITY TODAY AND TOMORROW IN CONJUNCTION WITH FOUR PARTNER WEBSITES. THIS ISN'T THE FIRST YOUTUBE LIVE STREAMING EVER THOUGH, THE COMPANY DEBUTED THE TECHNOLOGY LAST WEEK WHEN IT WEBCAST THE GOOGLE PRESS CONFERENCE THAT UNVEILED GOOGLE INSTANT SEARCH. YAHOO HAS ANNOUNCED IT PLANS TO GIVE ITS MAIL SERVICE A MUCH NEEDED REVAMP THIS FALL IN ORDER TO IMPROVE SERVICE AND REVERSE THE TREND OF DROPPING USERS. CODE-NAMED MINTY, THE UPDATE WILL BRING WITH IT A SLEEKER DESIGN, INTEGRATION WITH SOCIAL NETWORKS, AND OVERALL QUICKER PERFORMANCE ESPECIALLY FOR OVERSEAS USERS. IF YOU LIVE IN CHINA, YOU'LL FINALLY BE ABLE TO GET YOUR HANDS ON AN I-PAD. APPLE ANNOUNCED THAT THE WI-FI IPAD ONLY WILL BE HITTING THE STORE SHELVES IN THE MIDDLE KINGDOMO STARTING ON SEPTEMBER 17TH. IT'LL BE AVAILABLE IN THE 16, 32 AND 64 GB VERSIONS, STARTING AT 3988 YUAN. HERE'S ANOTHER WORD OF CAUTION WHEN IT COMES TO POSTING TOO MUCH INFORMATION ON SOCIAL NETWORKS. THREE LOCAL MEN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE BURGLARIZED MORE THAN 18 HOMES SIMPLY BY CHECKING THE STATUS UPDATES ON FACEBOOK OF VICTIMS, WHO ANNOUNCED THEY WERE GOING ON VACATION OR WEREN'T HOME. ALL TOLD, POLICE RECOVERED BETWEEN 100 TO 200 THOUSAND DOLLARS OF STOLEN PROPERTY. EVEN MORE INTERESTING, POLICE CAUGHT THE BURGLARS BY LISTENING FOR A SPECIFIC TYPE OF FIREWORK THAT WAS STOLEN FROM A VICTIM'S HOUSE. SOUNDS LIKE GOOD DETECTIVE WORK ALL AROUND. THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY AND THAT DOES IT FOR THIS WEEK. I'M JEFF BAKALAR FOR CNET.COM, AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
