Get ready to double (or triple, or quadruple) your coupon fun. AT&T is the latest to pile on the ever-increasing heap of large corporations--most notably Google  and Facebook -- eyeing Groupon's  wildly lucrative daily deals market. As an incentive, AT&T is dangling an extra $10 off its first deal for those who sign up in the select launch cities of Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Dallas-Fort Worth. The service is expected to go live in a few weeks. Just how many $20 mani-pedis can one country possibly need...?
It's getting ever harder to tell a tablet from an e-reader. Taiwanese manufacturer Quanta Computer reportedly received an order to design a new Kindle model with characteristics of the device's e-ink technology on a color screen.

Peacenik Facebook streams arguing that the death of Osama Bin Laden  should not be celebrated are brimming with a (supposed) Martin Luther King Jr. quote that reads, "I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars..." Unfortunately, All Things D couldn't find evidence that MLK said the first, and most important, sentence. Social media users have a tendency  to blindly share (sometimes inaccurate) information, and while this is isn't a dangerous rumor, it does at least illustrate the fact that most "citizen journalists" don't also work a second shift as their own fact-checking desk.
