Today's e-Reads: AT&T Sues Customers; What the Google-Motorola Deal Means

August 16, 2011

AT&T sues customers for suing the company over its plans to buy T-Mobile, PC Magazine reports.

Google began talking to Motorola before it became clear that Motorola's patents are a hot item, according to Bloomberg's back story on the deal.
