Anti file-sharing laws considered

50°
365w ago - The UK government could legislate to crack down on illegal file-sharers, a senior politician has told the BBC's iPM programme. Lord Triesman, the parliamentary Under Secretary for Innovation, Universities and Skills, said intellectual property theft would not be tolerated.

"If we can't get voluntary arrangements we will legislate," he said. The comments could prove controversial with privacy advocates and internet service providers.

Lord Triesman called on internet service providers to take a "more activist role" in the problem of illegal file-sharing.
 

Go exploring with Afrika and Aqua on PS3

50°
370w ago - We've managed to track down and capture the new trailer for Afrika, PS3's safari-cum-photography game, and it's looking more and more intriguing every time we see it. Details are still scarce about how it'll actually work, but seeing as you'll be using a camera, at least in some way, we can almost guarantee that any pictures could be used as your wallpaper on the PS3 XMB.

And Sony's adventuring doesn't end there; not content with housing tropical fish in a virtual fish tank, in PSN title Aqua Vista, they've dived into to the deep blue sea with new a title called Aqua. This underwater safari looks like it's going to function much like the previously mentioned Afrika except it'll swap meerkats and lions for a vast ocean, colourful fish and huge whales. Both games look stunningly beautiful - just check out that lion's mane in the trailer below - and will definitely act as a nice, tranquil, distraction to shooting enemies in the face.

Given that Aqua and Afrika seem to use to the same technology and begin with the letter A, we're hoping for the announcement of Antarctica before the year is out.
 

Chinese web filtering 'erratic'

50°
371w ago - China's firewall that tries to sanitise web browsing is much more porous than previously thought, says a study.

Carried out by US researchers outside China, it found that the firewall often failed to block what the Chinese government finds objectionable.

The firewall was least effective when lots of Chinese web users were online.

Often, said the study, the idea of the firewall was more effective than the technology at discouraging talk about banned subjects.
