The Groupon buzz continues as the company’s founder Andrew Mason prepares to leave the Allen & Co. tech conference, with no major (or quirky) announcements.
Life goes on: Tuesday we learned that Groupon’s daily deals have moved on to big-ticket items – like cars. Sadly, you've got to live in Detroit to take advantage of this deal, but some say it's a way for Groupon to distinguish itself against competitors. More cities are on the daily deal train, with the addition of four including Toronto, even though some analysts there have doubts.
