Read the full scoop here.

    •The U.S. government sued to block the AT&T and T-Mobile deal. Why? Because it believes the merger would lesson competition and reduce innovation in the wireless industry. "The combination of AT&T and T-Mobile would result in tens of millions of consumers all across the United States facing higher prices, fewer choices and lower quality products for mobile wireless services," Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole said in a statement.

    •Yet, AT&T is surprised by this. So is T-Mobile. It the deal doesn't go through, AT&T may owe $3 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    •Land-line phones can hook up with Skype now.


    •The Walkman makes a comeback as anAndroid phone. Sony gives CNET a first look at its Android-powered music player. The prototype is called the Walkman Mobile Entertainment Player. A dedicated button will allow users to access music quickly. Simply swiping the device will switch albums. Its tag line? Designed for music lovers by music lovers.

    •MailChimp, the e-mail marketing service used by commercial clients, bought startup TinyLetter, which allows individuals to e-mail newsletters and manage subscriber lists.

    •There's a demand for software to help companies sift through mounds of data. IBM bought U.K. crime analytics company i2, which helps police forces and the military look at a lot of security data. Recently, Hewlett-Packard bought Autonomy for $11 billion.
