Our pre-caffeine roundup is a collection of the hottest, strangest, and most amusing stories of the morning.
Amazon.com down for some -- sporadically -- this morning. But it seems OK (for now). The nation may resume buying its Brita Filters.
Speaking of buying things, Best Buy is totally fixing to price match the Internet.
Anonymous is mad at WikiLeaks on account of this "paywall" thing.
So this is a crazy story: At least three individuals arrested for making online death threats in Japan will not be prosecuted -- turns out malware is to blame!
Meanwhile, there are 6 billion mobile subscriptions worldwide. That's a lot of cellphones!
You know that purple haze in photos iPhone 5 users are complaining about? Now there's a green glow in the display, according to some users.
And how about that weird giant eyeball that washed up on a Florida beach? (Of course it had to be Florida.)
Or that space diamond -- larger than Earth -- spotted by astronomers? (Joker and the Penguin are totally plotting to steal it!)
In closing, news you can use: How to dress a hedgehog for Halloween!
