Though such charges could mean the death penalty for him, military prosecutors say they'll likely push for life in prison. (CBS News and Ars Technica)

  • Facebook introduced its rumored commenting system plug-in upgrade which offers beefed up moderatation features -- for instance, publishers can make certain comments private -- and better sharing so users can show comments they've made on third-party sites in their News Feeds, too. (PBS)
  • Daily deals site LivingSocial introduced its second national deal yesterday: two Fandango movie tickets for $9, some 70% off the normal sales price. So far, more than 730,000 have been purchased.
