The U.S. Department of Justice filed an antitrust lawsuit today to block AT&T’s $39 billion merger with T-Mobile. The merger, which would create the largest wireless company in the U.S., would have been a deal between the nation’s second- and fourth-largest wireless phone carriers.  The  Department of Justice filed the suit on antitrust grounds, stating that the merger would substantially lessen competition, result in higher prices and give consumers  lower quality and less innovative products.  Along with Verizon, the two merged companies would account for 78% of the industry’s revenue and over two-thirds of wireless customers in the U.S.

As data becomes increasingly digital, are Business Cards becoming obsolete?  With the entire hullabaloo (and yes, I’ve been anxiously waiting to use that word on SheBytes for months now!), about the digitization of the business card, and the possibility of About.me making the traditional business card obsolete, I found it an apt opportunity to lend some of my input.
