Two men responsible for starting groups on Facebook to incite riots in London were sentenced to four years in jail. Although the Facebook groups did not lead to any rioting, law enforcement hopes the sentence will deter others from similar actions. In other news, AT&T recently announced that it’s releasing two 4G devices starting August 21st. The 4G USB modem and mobile hotspot will give you Internet on the go, with 5GB of data running you $50 a month. Unfortunately, AT&T has yet to announce any coverage areas for LTE service. And finally, in hopes of catching up to Microsoft’s Xbox sales, Sony recently lowered the cost the PlayStation 3 by $50. The 160GB model will only run you $249. You won’t find a much better price for a videogame console, blu-ray player and set-top box that can stream Netflix and Hulu.
