2011: The year of Anonymous

Culture
Hey, what's going on everybody? It is Thursday March 22nd, 2012. I'm Jeff Bakalar from CNET.com and it is time to get loaded. Mobile social gaming giant Zynga has acquire the company behind the insanely popular game Draw Something for a reported $180 million plus $30 million in employee retention. The irritatingly named OMGPop Studio will join the Zynga family which puts out titles like Words With Friends and Farmville. Now, are you ready for this hour's Apple rumor? According to a report from Reuters, the next iPhone will boast a 4.6-inch retina display which is of course more than an inch bigger than the current screen on the 4S. However, Mac enthusiast site MacRumors still thinks that a 4-inch screen is much more likely. So is Google rethinking it's Google Wallet strategy? According to Bloomberg, the company is eyeing changes to improve it's mobile payment system due to slow adoption and pushback from some carriers... Google Wallet, the app that makes your phone your wallet. Google is considering sharing wallet revenue with carriers like Verizon and AT&T in order to get them to endorse the technology even though it sounds like those companies are readying their own competing systems. A new Verizon study suggest that 2011 was in fact the year of the hacktivist and vigilante groups like Anonymous with more than 100 million users data being breached. Hacktivist make their present felt more worldwide from 2011 then financial criminals that usually heavily outweigh incidents like data breaches. And finally, we're following up on the ongoing controversial Mass Effect 3 ending gate sage... this war has brought you here today. The next few hours will decide the fate of everyone in the galaxy. There will be no second chances and no room for mistakes. One way or another, this war ends today. The company's developer Bioware says that they're actually considering giving into players' complaints and will offer some sort of downloadable content that would, according to the company's co-founder, help answer questions. So if this is how it's gonna work now, I'm actually gonna go call a (broberds?) and mechas because I don't like how Back to the Future 3 ended. We'll see how that works out. Those are our headlines for today. I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET.com and you are just been loaded.
