Submission + - AT&T Blocking Facebook in midwest? (kcci.com)

coolate writes: "If you are experiencing problems connecting to Facebook on Thursday, you're not alone.
People across the Midwest are reporting connection errors with Facebook and Facebook Messenger.
The problem is reportedly due to an outage with AT&T who operates a large part of the Internet backbone.
The outage is impacting people in Iowa, Twin Cities, Chicago and beyond."

It is still down for me and others I know with AT&T in the midwest. After contacting AT&T they said it was a known problem.

When Should I Buy an Android Tablet? 396

jpyeck writes "I've deliberately avoided the smartphone craze, due to the fact I've never utilized any phone (landline or otherwise) enough to justify the monthly fees. But the geek in me craves the 'smart' part of the equation, especially since I got a bonus this year-end that is burning a hole in my pocket. The iPad is out of the question because I need a bit more hack-ability in my gadgets. I am drooling over the Android Honeycomb demo from the CES. I've had my eye on the Galaxy Tab, though it sounds like it won't support Honeycomb. The Xoom looks great, but who knows when it will come out? The consensus seems to be 'wait a few months for Honeycomb.' If you were me, with limited patience, would you buy an Android tablet now? If so, which?"
