iPhone 4s is also trending as the latest version of Apple's ( AAPL) smartphone broke an early order record. Orders for the new iPhone hit more than 1 million in the first 24 hours, beating the record set by the iPhone 4 of 600,000 orders in one day. Some who expected Apple to unveil the iPhone 5 were disappointed by the announcement of the iPhone 4S, but this version could do better than any of the others as it will be offered by more network carriers and in more countries. Sprint ( S) is carrying the phone for the first time and has reportedly sold out of the $199 model, while AT&T ( T) and Verizon ( VZ) both say orders of the phone will be received after the official launch date.
Wal-Mart ( WMT) is another hot topic. The retailer announced a partnership with Facebook that will include specific pages on the social networking site designated to Wal-Mart's numerous locations. On those pages, customers can interact with their local Wal-Mart stores and get product information and discount announcements. To get information from their local store, customers will go to www.facebook.com/walmart and "like" the location of their choosing. Wal-Mart reportedly hopes to one day be able to offer discounts personal to its customers based on the information they "like" on their Facebook page.
