A report in UK games trade title MCV claims Sony will reveal its expected "follow-up to the PS3" at this year's E3 gaming event. Given that we're also expecting Microsoft and Nintendo to show off their next-gen consoles, it could be the biggest and most brutal three-way console battle of all. E3 2012 starts on June 5th. [MCV]
London’s set to get Europe’s largest free Wi-Fi zone with a partnership between O2, Westminister and Kensington and Chelsea Borough Councils.

It wasn’t that long ago we were getting excited by single-core chips topping 1GHz in our phones.

Ramnit, the bank information-stealing worm has recently taken a bite out of Facebook and it seems to like the taste. It’s managed to steal 45,000 Facebook login credentials already, mostly from the UK and France, and there doesn’t seem to be any stopping it.
Apple's not been the rock-solid unflappable entity that we’ve been used to in recent years, and it seems to be getting worse. It prematurely published a paid “GameStore” app on the App Store and hurriedly moved to remove it, but not before some overly eager people bought it, of course.

Time Out is one of those magazines you probably dip in and out of, but did you know the first issue, published in 1968, had an "electronic music" section? Yes, while Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull were the headline acts that August, Time Out's listed just one "computer music" event for that fortnight -- a concert of taped music from the Experimental Music Studio, situated in the University of Illinois.
