Loaded: Morning Edition: Yahoo gets social abroad


IT’S TUESDAY, MAY 25TH. I’M NATALI DEL CONTE.
IT’S TIME TO GET LOADED.
[*] YAHOO HAS ACQUIRED A COMPANY CALLED KOPROL.
IT IS A LOCATION-BASED MOBILE SOCIAL NETWORK. SO KIND
OF LIKE FOURSQUARE. YOU CAN CHECK IN TO VARIOUS PLACES
AS WELL AS ADD YOUR PHOTOS, REVIEWS, AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
THE FINANCIAL TERMS OF THE DEAL WERE NOT DISCLOSED.
[*] THE 16-GIG IPHONE 3GS GOES ON SALE AT WARL-MART
TODAY. IT WILL COST $97, WHICH IS THE CHEAPEST ITS EVER
BEEN BUT YOU DO NEED TO SIGN A 2-YEAR AGREEMENT.
[*] MASTERCARD WANTS IN ON THE MOBILE PAYMENT
SPACE. THE COMPANY IS GOING TO LET SOFTWARE AND APP DEVELOPERS
USE THEIR TECHNOLOGY TO CREATE PAYMENT SYSTEMS.
THIS MEANS THAT A GAME OR APP COULD CHARGE YOU FOR SOMETHING
STRAIGHT TO YOUR MASTERCARD. [*]
THE NINTENDO DS-I IS GETTING THREE NEW HORROR BOOKS FROM
AUTHOR ANTHONY HOROWITZ. THE BOOKS COME FROM EA-FLIPS,
INTERACTIVE BOOKS FOR CHILDREN. THE STORIES COST 200 DS-I
POINTS EACH. [*]

FIGHTER 4 HDTV. WE DON’T HAVE PRICING YET BUT THESE ARE REAL
TV’S NOT JUST MODDED MONITORS. THEY ARE DEFINITELY FOR THE
MORE MASCULINE ROOMS IN YOUR HOUSE. [*]
THOSE ARE ALL OF YOUR HEADLINES. I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW
