-It's Monday, August 29, 2011. I'm Wilson Tang on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. Samsung has delayed the release of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 again in Australia. The company has engaged in a major patent battle with Apple around the world and says it will withhold selling the Tablet until September 30th even after making changes to the product. The Korean electronics giant anticipates following major patent encounter suits against Apple in Australia soon. Speaking of Samsung, the company has launched its ChatOn music service for Android, Bada, Blackberry, and iOS users around the world. The service supports more than just text and multimedia messaging for free. It will also allow users to share files and join chat groups. ChatOn is expected to be multi-platform for future phones, smartphones, and tablets. The software will be multilingual as well. Google TV is expected to launch next year in Europe despite a rocky start in the US. Google Chairman, Eric Schmidt, confirmed the news at a European industry event. The next iteration of the Google TV software is expected to debut soon and will likely be based on a version of android and allow for apps. In more TV news, the electronics industry is abuzz that Apple may be getting into the HDTV market. Multiple industry sources say that Apple will release TV sets in 2012 or 2013. They expect the software to be iOS based and have a new subscription model for users. It turns out social discount sites are all the fun and profits that many in the tech industry thought it was gonna be. Facebook, confirmed on Friday, it will be killing its daily deals program that it only launched in April. The company instead is launching a new kind of service called Deals on Facebook which will be more social than their previous Check-In service. Finally, if you have a new Thunderbolt-enabled computer, finding accessories can be a bit problematic with the new port connector. Well, now, Sonnet is releasing a new Thunderbolt adapter called Echo that will allow you to mount and install ExpressCard/34 cards. This will be a huge boon to videographers who shoot on the popular SxS format and can use special video-capture devices. Those are your headlines for today.
