UK experiences shortage of Xbox 360

The launch of the redesigned Xbox 360 by Microsoft has caused a feverish demand in the UK leading to dearth of the console in all leading retail outlets.

Most of the stores are sold out, and one of the stockist even confessed that they has greatly underestimated the demand for the new console.

Additional consoles are expected to reach the retailers in a week or two, however none of the stores are booking pre-orders on the next shipment, which means that any new stock that comes will be sold on a first come first served basis.

Facebook in Legal Soup Over Privacy Concerns

German officials have filed a lawsuit against Facebook for accessing and retaining personal data of those who don't use the site. Facebook can face fines of tens of thousands of euros under privacy laws. The popular social networking site has confirmed receiving a notice regarding lawsuit.

"We consider the saving of data from third parties, in this context, to be against data privacy laws," said Johannes Caspar, head of Hamburg's Data Protection Authority.

He said he had received a lot of complaints from people who had not registered on Facebook, but whose details had been added to the site by friends and relatives. He accused Facebook of saving personal information of non-members without their approval, to be used for marketing purposes.

Switzerland is also reported to be worried about the use of third-party data. Facebook has to reply to the legal complaint latest by august 11.

The California-based company told the BBC in an email that it was "currently reviewing (the complaint) and will readily respond to it within the given time frame".

"Millions of Germans come to Facebook each day to find their friends, share information with them and connect to the world around them," wrote spokesman Stefano Hessel.

Facebook has nearly 500 million users worldwide but according to figures by ComScore is only the fourth biggest social network in Germany.
