It's not easy logging into a life of crime. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNET Update. The online multiplayer world of Grant Theft Auto V experienced some server issues when it launched Tuesday. Players hit roadblocks not being able to log on, as well as other bugs. Rockstar Games apologized for the connection problems with these launched issues were expected for such a massive open-world game. Rockstar did say last week that players should expect growing pains like crashes and glitches. Grand Theft Auto 5 has become the biggest game release of the year, wracking up more than $1 billion in sales in just the first three days of its release. The document library Script is launching an eBook subscription service. For $9 a month, users can access a library of thousands of eBooks from the app but the choice of books is still limited. For example, some new releases and bestsellers are not included and you'll have to pay extra for those titles. But this whole concept of having a Netflix for books is an area that's growing fast. Another similar service is Oyster which costs $10 a month for access to digital books on your phone and tablet and Amazon began tinkering with a similar concept just for kids, it's called Kindle FreeTime Unlimited. It costs $5 a month for access to kids books, games and apps but only for the Kindle Fire tablet.

It's launching this week to a limited group of users and will slowly roll out to more people. But what you will notice sooner is another social media shortcut button that's added to websites and stories. Along with buttons for liking, pinning and tweeting, you could see a Spotify follow button. Spotify launched a web button that anyone can embed as a shortcut to follow person's music streaming library on the service.
