Morning Edition: Is this TV overcompensating?

Morning Edition: Is this TV overcompensating?


IT’S WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9TH. I’M NATALI DEL CONTE.
IT’S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*]
REUTERS REPORTS THAT THE PAID VERSION OF HULU IS COMING TO THE IPAD
AND XBOX WITHIN THE MONTH. THERE WOULD STILL BE A FREE VERSION BUT A
MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION OPTION WOULD LET CUSTOMERS WATCH EPISODES
FURTHER BACK. THE E3 GAMING CONFERENCE IS NEXT WEEK SO IT IS LIKELY
WE’LL SEE AN XBOX-HULU ANNOUNCEMENT THEN. [*]
GOOGLE HAS CONFIRMED THAT GOOGLE GOGGLES IS COMING TO IPHONE. THIS IS
A VISUAL SEARCH PROGRAM THAT LETS YOU TAKE A PICTURE OF SOMETHING
AND THEN GOOGLE WILL SEARCH FOR INFO ON THAT IMAGE. THIS HAS BEEN
AVAILABLE ON ANDROID PHONES FOR SOME TIME. THE IPHONE VERSION
SHOULD BE OUT BY THE END OF THE YEAR. [*]
GOOGLE VOICE SEARCH FOR MOBILE NOW WORKS IN FRENCH, GERMAN, ITALIAN,
AND SPANISH. THIS IS THE FEATURE THAT LETS YOU SAY A WORD OR PHRASE
INTO THE GOOGLE SEARCH MOBILE APP AND GOOGLE WILL SEARCH WHAT IT
THINKS YOU’RE SAYING. GOOGLE CAUTIONS THAT IT WORKS BEST WITH NATIVE
LANGUAGE SPEAKERS OF THOSE LANGUAGES SO IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER TYPE OF
ACCENT, IT MIGHT NOT WORK SO WELL FOR YOU. [*]
SHARP IS SHOWING OFF A NEW WALL-TO-WALL TV SETUP THAT WILL
BASICALLY MAKE YOUR WHOLE ROOM A BIG TELEVISION. IT’S A LITTLE
INTIMIDATING. IT HAS 30 60-INCH LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAYS MOUNTED NEXT
TO ONE ANOTHER. IT IS CALLED THE I-3 WALL AND IT WILL GO ON SALE IN
JAPAN IN AUGUST FOR THE LOW LOW PRICE OF $550-THOUSAND DOLLARS.
[*] THAT IS YOUR NEWS FOR NOW. I’LL BE BACK THIS
AFTERNOON WITH MORE. I’M NATALI DEL CONTE WITH CNET TV AND YOU’VE JUST
BEEN LOADED.
