In today's Remainders: AT&T users log in to Facebook only to find unfamiliar faces; iPhone 4G rumors abound while AMOLED Apple Tablet rumors get shot down; and Northwestern's StatsMonkey robot takes hard stats and churns out baseball narratives.

AT&T has acknowledged the issue but maintained that it only affected a "limited number" of users. Still, you'd think they wouldn't just brush this off.
