Facebook announced today that it's working with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline on a program designed to help save lives.

The most interesting mobile platform today? The car.
On this Roundtable, we discuss what's going into cars and how it's getting there. Will your next car have an app store? Who is building the best in-car technology? Or are manufacturers just going to lean on smartphones for all the cool new tech?
On today's Most Epic Buzz Out Loud Episode Ever, we interview the founders of Skout.com and find out there's an easier way to find love and friendship all around you than the way you have to do it in Sweden. Also, how Verizon is trying to murder the Galaxy Nexus and Google is letting it.
