Microsoft unveils disc-less Xbox One

This week Microsoft announced an all digital version of the Xbox One console. 

The console will be available from the 7th of May and will be priced $249. It'll come with a 1TB hard drive. The reset of the hardware is the same as the Xbox One S, just with no disk drive.

All games will need to be downloaded from the internet and will be purchased against your Microsoft account.

Facebook has 'accidentally' uploaded the emails of phone contacts of millions of users without their knowledge or permission.

The information was apparently used to connect user's contacts with their profiles on Facebook to recommend friends.
