As the new year gets underway the rumour mills have started to grind their gears and crank up the noise once again. The rumour mills attention at the moment seems to be focused on the next generation X-Box 720, code name Loop.
The latest round of rumours surrounding the X-Box 720 raise some rather interesting questions about what Microsoft has up its sleeve for its X-Box 720. Will the next gen console be using the Radeon HD 6670 graphics card, a last generation low-end graphics card?
Also tales of an X-Box Tablet seem to be rolled into this latest batch of buzz. We’ve concluded that there is NO WAY that the next generation top-end X-Box will use a graphics processor that aren’t a step up from the current generation. The rumour contends that the 6670 is 6 times more powerful than the current X-Box 360 graphics processor, not even close to the truth. So where does the truth lie and what does Microsoft have install for the console world?

Tens of thousands of young Poles hit city streets across the country in a mounting wave of offline and online protest against a government decision to sign an international anti-online piracy accord. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement – ACTA – which Poland’s centrist prime minister Donald Tusk has vowed to endorse, aims to create international standards for intellectual property protection. Internet groups including global hacker collective Anonymous oppose it as limiting online freedoms.
Poland, an ex-communist state which joined the European Union in 2004, has committed to signing ACTA on Thursday. A protest by thousands organised largely via Facebook in the central Polish city of Kielce on Wednesday turned violent when some protesters trashed cars and attacked police, the commercial TVN24 news channel reported. Protesters also turned out for anti-ACTA rallies in Wroclaw, Szczecin, Olsztyn and Bialystok.
Online protest pages on Facebook have attracted more than 300,000 supporters, while an anti-ACTA online petition had drawn about 130,000 signatures by Wednesday evening. Protesters are upset Mr Tusk’s government pushed ahead with ACTA after meetings with record companies and commercial media, but held no public consultations with online rights groups.

Übermicroblog, Twitter has announced that it will begin restricting tweets in certain countries, marking a dramatic policy shift for the site. The site said even with the possibility of such restrictions, Twitter would not be able to coexist with some countries. ”As we continue to grow internationally, we will enter countries that have different ideas about the contours of freedom of expression,” Twitter wrote in a blog post. ”Some differ so much from our ideas that we will not be able to exist there,” it said. Twitter gave as examples of restrictions it might cooperate with “certain types of content, such as France or Germany, which ban pro-Nazi content”.
A Twitter spokesperson declined to elaborate on the blog. ”Starting today, we give ourselves the ability to reactively withhold content from users in a specific country while keeping it available in the rest of the world,” the Twitter blog said.
Twitter’s decision to begin censoring content represents a significant departure from its policy of just one year ago, when anti-government protesters in Tunisia, Egypt and other Arab countries coordinated mass demonstrations through the microblog and, in turn, thrust Twitter’s disruptive potential into the global spotlight. As the revolutions brewed last January, Twitter signalled it would take a hands-off approach to censoring content in a blog post entitled The Tweets Must Flow. Read the full article »»»»
