+ - Facebook "archiving" all groups->

Submitted by Sprotch
Sprotch (832431) writes "The following message has appeared over the first page of all groups:
"Over the next few months, Facebook will be archiving all groups created using the old groups format. Moving forward, you can create groups using the new groups format, which makes it easy to share with the important groups in your life."
As part of the archiving process, members of the old group get deleted. In other words, "archived" groups are destroyed.
While facebook claims that it is possible to upgrade to the new groups, this option is not available for larger groups, which are most at need of it."

I have - newspapers have been going to town with unsubstantiated euro bashing. Luckily, I also look at how the euro is doing, as I'm paid in sterling but need to go to the eurozone often. Unfortunately (for me) the euro is doing much better than the sterling (and the dollar). But do continue to believe whatever the news say, it's always the truth.

UgLyPuNk writes with news of a report that Blizzard has spent over $100 million developing StarCraft II. Initial development on the game began in 2003, and it's due to be released on July 27th. Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick "described StarCraft as one of the company’s seven 'pillars of opportunity' (where each pillar has the potential to deliver operating profit between $500 million and $1 billion over its life span)." The finalized system requirements for the game have been released, and players planning to buy the digitally distributed version can download it now, though it won't be playable until the 27th.
