IT'S THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28TH, I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. GOOGLE GOT A REPRIEVE FROM THE FTC REGARDING ITS STREET VIEW IMAGE INVESTIGATION. GOOGLE WAS IN HOT WATER FOR CAPTURING USER DATA WHEN IT CAPTURED IMAGES FOR GOOGLE MAPS. THE FTC SAID THAT GOOGLE SUFFICIENTLY ADDRESSED THIS PROBLEM AND IS LETTING THEM OFF WITH A SLAP ON THE WRIST. GOOGLE IS ALSO LAUNCHING GOOGLE PLACE SEARCH, A WAY TO INTEGRATE LOCAL BUSINESS LISTINGS DIRECTLY INTO SEARCH RESULTS. PLACE SEARCH WILL BE A STANDALONE SEARCH OPTION SO YOU CAN CHOOSE THIS IN THE SAME WAY YOU CHOOSE IMAGES, NEWS, OR PRODUCTS. IT WILL BRING PLACES LISTINGS THAT BUSINESS OWNERS CAN CLAIM INTO MAIN SEARCH RESULTS PAGES. WE NOW KNOW WHEN T-MOBILE WILL CARRY THE SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB. THE CARRIER SAYS THAT THE IPAD COMPETITOR WILL HIT SHELVES ON NOVEMBER 10. SO NOW WE HAVE DATES FOR VERIZON, WHICH IS NOVEMBER 11, AND SPRINT, WHICH IS NOVEMBER 14. IT LOOKS LIKE SONY IS IN FACT MAKING A PLAYSTATION PHONE. PHOTOS OF THE PHONE WERE LEAKED ON ENGADGET THIS WEEK. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL RUN GOOGLE'S ANDROID OPERATING SYSTEM, THE 3.0 GINGERBREAD VARIETY. IT WILL ALSO COME WITH A CUSTOM SONY MARKETPLACE WHICH WILL LET YOU PURCHASE AND DOWNLOAD GAMES. WE DON'T KNOW MUCH MORE ABOUT IT BUT WE ARE THINKING WE WILL ACTUALLY SEE THE PHONE OFFICIALLY IN EARLY 2011. WE FAILED TO MENTION THIS EARLIER IN THE WEEK BUT OUTLOOK FOR MAC CAME OUT ON TUESDAY. IT IS THE FULL-FEATURED MAIL CLIENT THAT WINDOWS USERS ENDEAR THEMSELVES TO. MAC USERS LIKE ME WHO CANNOT STAND ENTOURAGE SHOULD APPRECIATE A VERSION OF OUTLOOK OPTIMIZED FOR THE MAC. A NEW FACEBOOK GAME WILL LET YOU PLAY FANTASY SPORTS WITH CELEBRITY NEWS. THE GAME IS CALLED FANSWARM. YOU PICK A GROUP OF CELEBRITIES AND THEY BECOME YOUR FANTASY TEAM. YOU COMPETE AGAINST YOUR FRIENDS TEAMS TO SEE HOW MANY OF YOUR CELEBRITIES GET WRITTEN UP IN THE GOSSIP BLOGS AND TWEETS. CELEBRITIES RANGE FROM SARAH PALIN TO PRESIDENT OBAMA AND OF COURSE THE USUAL LINDSAY LOHAN AND LADY GAGA. I AM ASHAMED TO SAY I HAVE PLAYED A GAME LIKE THIS BEFORE WITH MY FRIENDS ON FAFARAZZI-DOT-COM. I LOST TERRIBLY BECAUSE BRITNEY SPEARS WAS ON AN OPPOSING TEAM AND SHE WENT AND SHAVED HER HEAD THAT SEASON. IT WAS BAD. THOSE ARE YOUR HEADLINES FOR TODAY. I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW. I'M NATALI DEL CONTE FOR CNET.COM, AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN LOADED.
