It's Tuesday December 14th. I'm Natali Morris. And it's time to get loaded. Microsoft plans to show off tablets at the 2011 Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas. Now, I know they did this last year with the HP Slate, but that was never really a real thing. Microsoft says they are ready with tablets this year, and they will be real and they will hit the market. Manufacturers are to include Dell and Samsung. Dell is working on acquiring a data storage company called Compellent Technologies. Compellent is a Cloud Storage Company perhaps indicating that Dell wants to start selling machines with less on-board storage and more Cloud-based strategy. The deal is said to be worth 960 million dollars. Google wants to help you help out technology noobs. The company has launched a site called Teach Parents Tech. It has simple tutorials to help people in your life who can't fly around the browser and a keyboard like you can. You can find these fun tutorials and watch them and also send them at teachparentstech.org. A new study shows that Americans spend just as much time online as they do watching television. In fact, the amount of time people have spent online has increased 121% in the last 5 years according to Forrester. People under 30 are spending an average of 12 hours per day online, while people over 66 are spending an average of 8 hours per day. These all makes me very glad that my show is on the internet. And another study that's bad for old media comes from In-Stat. It shows that physical disc sales like DVD's and Blu-Ray discs are expected to decline by 4.6 billion dollars by the year 2014. People will opt instead to stream movies and videos, increasing the revenue of streamed content from 2.3 billion dollars to 6.3 billion dollars. Again, making me glad that I work in online video. And finally, here is the perfect gift for the Jedi Knight in your life- the R2-D2 Headphones from Coloud, costs about $50. They also come with ear cups designed in the vein of Storm Troopers, Darth Vader or an X-Wing Fighter. Those are your headlines for today. Remember that you can find links to anything we've discussed here at CNET.com/loaded. I'll see you tomorrow. I'm Natali Morris for CNET.com, and you've just been loaded.
