Loaded: Weblebrities and iPhones Video Transcript
>> We have the final word on the iPhone, many celebrity interviews from the red carpet at the Webbies, and advice on how not to be an idiot on YouTube. It's Tuesday, June 10. I'm Natali Del Conte, and it's time to get Loaded. ^M00:00:13 [ Music ] We can all take a break from Apple hysteria now that the keynote is over, so let's go over what was announced at yesterday's Apple developer's conference. There is a new iPhone. It will be a 3G phone. It will have GPS. And it will be cheaper. An 8-gig model will be $199.00, and a 16-gig model will be $299.99 and come in white or black. A bunch of applications will run on it as well as corporate applications. It will also have something called "Mobile Me," which is sort of cloud computing application that stores and syncs your email, contacts, calendars, and more. It's essentially a rebranded version of dot Mac. All of this will be available when the new iPhone hits stores on July 11. ^M00:00:53 Speaking of iPhone, here at CNET we just released new optimized features and content for the iPhone. All CNET sites have been revamped for web browsing and will have news, reviews, podcasts, downloads, and of course, shows from CNET TV. CNET TV is broken down by shows, but unfortunately the Loaded page is not fully functional just yet. It's new, so give it a day or two. For more information, go to iphone.cnet.com from your iPhone. ^M00:01:17 Who Lou scored big with the addition of Comedy Central's Daily Show and Colbert Report. Both shows are now available in full episode format on the site. This is a bit surprising considering they're both Viacom products on an NBC channel. I think it's a great move, though. Both shows already have their own dedicated website, but they only serve clips of episodes, not episodes in their entirety. We will try to ask Stephen Colbert about this tonight, as he is scheduled to accept the Person of the Year Webbie award tonight here in New York City. ^M00:01:44 Last night was the film and video awards ceremony for the Webbies, so we stationed ourselves on the red carpet to talk to this year's webleberties. Take a look. ^M00:01:54 [ Music ]
>> How do you feel about Obama clinching the nomination?
>> I think it's absolutely incredible. I'm very excited. I kind of knew it was going to happen. I had a really good feeling about it. He's just been doing really great all year. And I feel just excited to kind of be a part of it.
>> Is Chocolate Rain gonna be, like, you know, The Hokey Pokey? Ten years, 20 years from now it'll be, like, yeah, I did that song called Chocolate Rain? I don't know. But I hope to continue making music, and I hope that still finds an audience. So time will tell.
>> It proves that everybody's the same in the world. That's what the Internet proves, you know? That's the positive side of it.
>> [Inaudible] already they like my -- they watch my stream on the 'Net, and it's coming out tomorrow.
>> Would you be okay with someone making their own version of your movies?
>> I would be happy. [Inaudible]. I did it, actually, myself.
>> I think we're one of the only award shows, if not one of the first, to honor the work that the judges choose and the work that the people choose right next to each other in every category because it's all about that, right? The web's all about everybody getting a voice.
>> And it feels great just to be honored. I swear, we don't get honored so much for the work that we do, so the fact that we won three Webbies, and we were nominated for four to us is like the greatest honor.
>> There's definitely room for people to kind of innovate and do weird, crazy stuff on each side.
>> And so we're just happy that on that other, more serious side, that we can get honored.
>> It's kind of cool.
>> There are people who say that Saturday Night Live is really what launched YouTube. And without Saturday Night Live, it may never have been the success that it was. Do you agree with that?
>> I 100 % agree. I did not know what it was until Lazy Sunday.
>> You know, we were all wondering why it was taking so long for it to launch, but now that it did, we understand why it took so long. We're all incredibly happy with it. I mean, I think we're sort of tailor made for the Internet, like all our stuff is in small slices, and you don't have to watch the ones that didn't work. And it worked out perfectly. ^M00:03:42
>> Tonight is the Award's Gala. You can find more information at webbieawards.com. The Encyclopedia Britannica has caved and is going to be accepting user-generated contributions. Britannica has been adamantly opposed to Wikipedia's model because of its potential to be inaccurate. The company is saying that its user-generated content will not be based on the Wiki model. Instead, contributors will have to prove their qualification in posting about a given subject. Contributions will then be edited by experts, and if they are approved, will be added to the article with credit to the contributor. I think this is a great idea. After all, Britannica is a much more credible source. Are students even allowed to cite Wikipedia in their bibliography these days? I wouldn't think so, but surely you can cite Britannica. If you're still in school, please enlighten us. Write in at firstname.lastname@example.org. ^M00:04:29 Virgin media is going to start policing its broadband users and prosecute any who are found guilty of persistent, illegal downloading. Over the course of the next week, Virgin will be sending warning letters to thousands of households where music is illegally shared. This is just a warning, but if users continue to break the law, they may have their service disconnect or be summoned to court. The problem is that Virgin, as the ISP, knows and is reporting on their customers' home broadband activity. That's spying. That's the equivalent of the phone companies handing over our phone records. I don't think this is okay? Do you? Write me at email@example.com. ^M00:05:03 A Florida judge has ordered that teenagers who posted videos of themselves committing a crime on YouTube apologize for that crime on YouTube. Two boys pulled what is called a "Fire in the Hole" prank, where they chuck their sodas at the poor, unsuspecting drive thru employee at a fast food restaurant. They posted it on YouTube and were subsequently prosecuted. The judge ordered that they apologize publicly on YouTube so that the community sees what the consequences are for this idiotic behavior. Moral of the story here, don't do stupid things. ^M00:05:31 Those are all your headlines for today. Tonight is the final Webbie event, which marks the end of Internet week here in New York. Tune in tomorrow to take a look at that. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV and you just been Loaded. ^M00:05:42
