Microsoft have backpedalled on some of the Xbox One DRM features following a backlash from the community. Why the reversal? Um, if you paid attention to E3 last week, you observed one of the greatest pummelings in industry history. Sony's PlayStation 4 presented itself as the other side of the coin to Microsoft's restrictions and stole the show.

Here's another new battery breakthrough, this time employing 3D printing. To make the microbatteries, a team based at Harvard University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign printed precisely interlaced stacks of tiny battery electrodes, each less than the width of a human hair.

A co-founder of The Pirate Bay has been sent to prison for two years, not for copyright issues, but for hacking. "The hacking has been very extensive and technically advanced," the Nacka district court said in a statement. "The attacker has affected very sensitive systems." He had denied the charges. Prosecution documents say Warg, a 28-year-old Swede, managed to transfer 24,200 Danish crowns ($4,300) online, but also attempted, in several different transactions, to transfer a total of around 683,000 euros ($915,500).

This is very, very Not Safe For Work, but it's also bizarre and hilarious. John McAfee has made a video showing how to uninstall McAfee software, parodying the various stories and shenanigans surrounding him from the last few months. Veerryy strong language and very NSFW. But aren't bored millionaires fun? :)
